London shame




  • Is Britain becoming a LGBT Nazi state?






  • We believe that the real homophobics are people who are so scared of LGBT bullying of anyone who speaks out against this sad and shameful bunch that they will do and say anything this lobby for perversion will dictate.

    • Remember that it is from the LGBT crowd that most child abuse occurs and yet the powers that be will now give these LGBT activists access to our children in schools.
    • Anyone who tries to stand up to this new form of totalitarianism is labelled haters often lose their jobs and may soon suffer imprisonment.
    • Once again over a million took part in so called London Pride (we call this London Shame), to watch 30,000 LGBT dressed (or undressed) in the most disgusting attire, this is not about love, its all about sex, its all about lust and homosexual lust at that!
    • How can parents take there children to such a horrible display of depravity?
    • A new form of Fascism and Nazism has arisen all they need is a leader, a Hitler type to rally their cause against Christian and the pogroms will begin.


    Is Theresa May the real "Homophobic" here?

    This is not about love but unnatural sex

    "...working that which is filthy and receiving in themselves that
    recompense which is was due to their error"
    Romans 1 - 27

    Below is an article and petition from CitizanGo:

    State sponsored Social terrorism

    In a speech at the Pride reception at Downing Street on July 3^rd, Prime Minister Theresa May proudly announced, ‘We will continue our investment in programmes to tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying in schools, protecting LGBT students and making acceptance and understanding the default.’  She went on to say, ‘A country that works for everyone is a country where nobody faces bigotry or violence because of who they are.’

    Well, we have news for Mrs May: this is not a country that works for everyone.  At least, not if you’re Christian, because in the UK today Christians are facing unacceptable levels of bigotry and violence from LGBTQ and transgender activists, who appear to think that by labelling ‘Hatred!’ any views that call into question their rebranded, 21st century view of morality, they can say and do whatever they want.  Even to the extent of rewriting the fundamental tenets of Christian faith, as set down in the Bible.

    The Government, however, clearly wants to go a lot further.  On the same day as the Pride reception in Downing Street, they launched a consultation into reform of the Gender Recognition Act 2004 – with the stated aim of helping transgender people who want legal recognition, but have so far not applied because they find the current process too bureaucratic, expensive and intrusive (https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/reform-of-the-gender-recognition-act-2004).
    To spell it out, they are consulting over implementation of gender self-identification, with the goal of eliminating any and all need for medical oversight.

    Is this going to affect freedom of belief and of speech?  Too right it is!

    Allowing transgender people to self-identify without any kind of supporting medical evidence can only progress the relentless drive to normalise what up to now, with good reason, has been labelled aberrant behaviour. And we should be concerned, because it will further undermine and potentially criminalise Christian belief, which says unequivocally that God created us male and female.  Because of which, to someone of faith, biology can’t only not be overturned, but matters.  Hugely. Under Theresa May’s self-avowed drive to celebrate the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities, while silencing the bigots, therefore, Christian faith will be categorised as discrimination.

    What next in this brave new world?  Will the Government exclude all Christians from public office by law? Will it reintroduce flogging for quoting Levicitus or Romans?

    We would remind Theresa May that the UK is still a Christian country. 
    Our laws, culture, and democracy are founded on Christian belief.  Yet now, all that once made Britain great is threatened by ideological totalitarianism that will not allow expression of any dissent –even when founded on belief, science, or clear medical risk.  This flies in the face of democracy.

    People have an absolute right to choose their preferred mode of life, in so far as it does not incite violence or cause harm to others.  Christians have an absolute right to practise and express their faith.

    Please sign and share as widely as possible our petition to the Prime Minister, the Rt Hon Theresa May MP, calling for an end to the prioritisation of LGBT rights over Christian rights to belief and free speech.

    Part Two - Pope St Uriah Heap


    The Babylonian Captivity of the Papacy

    Part Two - The Pagan Pope?

    The homo-erotic Nativity (in St Peter's Square)


    There can be no doubt about it: we have a very controversial pope, if you are an orthodox faithful Catholic that is. It seems that pope Francis is more concerned with following secular leads, the Zeitgeist and pleasing secular commentators and liberals in the Church than affirming traditional Catholic doctrine and the teachings of scripture. We can perhaps today see that a new Babylon has arisen and invaded the Western world. This new Babylon can be found in the modern mainstream media and there is very little that comes out of it that affirms Judeo-Christian moral values, in fact quite the opposite. As we have attempted to point out many times. And it appears that this papacy is captivated by it.

    Is Pope Francis really a pagan?
    This pope likes to make off the cuff remarks to journalists like "who am I to judge" when referring to homosexual activity. This then gets thrown in the face of faithful Catholics who try to defend biblical and Catholic teachings on the matter; I know, it's happened to me. There is a new direction in Vatican moral theology that is in complete contrast with everything that has gone before it, a complete turnaround in the sacred truths and against those given us by Jesus Christ. We are told that this is merciful and yet it is really licence that being talked about, not mercy at all.

    Or perhaps it is really as this article explains? Please click link Francis explains 'who am I to judge' https://www.ncronline.org/news/vatican/francis-explains-who-am-i-judge I am not convinced at all I must admit, is this pope simply playing games with orthodoxy, two steps towards heterodoxy then one short step back, throwing faithful orthodox Catholics a bone?

    Just recently this 'pagan pope' told a "Gay" man that "God made you like that and loves you like that". This is of course un-Christian rubbish, this goes against the teaching of the one and only true God, the Christian God, for nowhere in sacred Scripture does God say this, neither has the teachings of the Church ever said this. St Paul, in Romans 1, writing of homosexuality as a pagan practice
    [25] Who changed the truth of God into a lie; and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
    [26] For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. [27] And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error.
    Of course this "Gay" man like so many poor homosexuals had been abused by another homosexual when he was a boy - a homosexual priest! This is why there are so many young homosexual men these days, they have been abused by older homosexual men when they were young and have been perverted.

    Then in his Amoris Laetitia he has even written that divorced and remarried can receive the sacraments especially Holy Communion without an annulment. This has caused much confusion in the Church and dismay among faithful Catholics

    Pope Francis Vs Jesus Christ
    Pope Francis suggests that the souls of those who die in mortal sin are not punished for eternity but cease to be. However, Jesus says in Matthew 25:46 Then they will go away to eternal punishment.

    Again we must qualify this by saying that this is second hand information from a notorious atheist Eugenio Scalfari who Francis gave an interview to who does not take notes, however this is not the first time that this pope has let himself be open to 'misinterpretation' so why does he give such interviews? I believe he knows just what he's doing - making a mess and Chaos come from the abyss. Remember the pope urged the Youth of South America to make a mess:

      “Make a mess, but then also help to tidy it up. A mess which gives us a free heart, a mess which gives us solidarity, a mess which gives us hope.”

    Here we have the pope taking four steps away from orthodoxy and only one back "...tidy it up" in to what? Into new heterodox doctrines of course! Am I being unfair? I don't think so just look at the mess at all levels in the Church today.

    Pope Francis Vs Our Lady of Fatima
    Our Lady of Fatima told Jacinta that more souls go to hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason and yet this pope seems to be sanctioning the worst possible type of sins of the flesh, homosexual acts, which often involve child rape. As in the above person.

    Pope St Uriah Heap vs the Christian Family
    During Pope Francis' papacy there has been a complete degeneration of what little is left of Christian morality in the West. And when millions of faithful Catholics have tried to save marriage and the family he failed to support them.

    One million French Catholics marched through Paris against "Gay" marriage - he failed to support them.
    Two million Italian Catholics marched through Rome against "Gay" marriage - he did very little.
    He did not call the faithful to support the Irish No to abortion vote.

    I am now dreading the World Meeting of Families in Dublin with pope Francis. Dublin LGBTQ Pride parade had adopted the theme "We are Family" as their motto - it goes from bad to worse.
    https://www.irishtimes.com/news/social-affairs/religion-and-beliefs/we-are-family-to-be-theme-of-dublin-pride-festival-in-june-1.3449548

    This pope cannot, nor can any pope unbind something that is now already bound in Heaven!

    Jesus said to St Peter "And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven.

    Therefore, this pope cannot, nor can any pope, change a doctrine that has been defined by a past pope or by Jesus Himself for it has been bound in heaven, to do so could mean that a future pope could just as easily change it back again. There are of course a whole team of liberal Vatican priests and bishops who are at work feverishly trying to find ways around Humanae Vitae. They hope to find words and ways to unlock or unbind Catholic teachings on morality especially sexual morality. It doesn't matter if Jesus Himself taught on this morality; they and this pope want to change it. This is the reason why there was such careful lobbying by liberals in the Curia to get him made pope.

    Everything is now up for grabs!
    The ban on contraception
    Homosexual activity, LGBT marriage "blessings" or worse
    The celibate male only Priesthood
    The family
    Even ... abortion?

    We have a useless pope, a complicit pope, an evil pope and he is leading people into hell. Please pray for him and all his misled supporters.

    It pains me to my very core to write such things about our pope, the papacy which we at CUT have long tried to support with very little help from priests or bishops (a few notable exceptions and even a Cardinal) but too little to matter.

    The Communion of Saints - St Philomena


    The Communion of Saints versus the Cult of Celebrity


    • Article originally printed in our Summer 2011 CUT newsletter


    St Philomena – a wonder worker with youthful virtue




    Nothing is actually known about St Philomena, there are no historical records. She is the only saint to have become known by her intercession, from which there has been an endless flow of miracles. These powerful intercessions have continued during the last two centuries, so powerful that many Popes had a great devotion to the little miracle worker, particularly Pope Gregory XVI, Leo XII, Pius IX and Leo XIII. But let us go back to her discovery.
                   In 1802 in the catacombs of St Priscilla the remains of a young woman were found. It was covered in stones and had symbols that indicated it was the body of a martyr named St Philomena. But why wait almost 1700 years before she became known? There were many factors which could give us good reasons why God waited until this point in time to reveal this particular saint. The Napoleonic wars were raging, the result of the French Revolution and in turn the result of the so called Enlightenment. Philosophers in France and Germany were putting man at the centre of the Universe and not God. In the 19th century materialism was becoming ever more prevalent and people were being led away from the Church.  After the discovery of her remains and the symbols which accompanied her she was catalogued and forgotten. However, In 1805 Canon Francis de Lucia of Mugnano, Italy, was in the Treasury of Relics in the Vatican and as he approached the relics of St Philomena he was struck with spiritual joy. He was allowed to erect a shrine to her in a chapel in Mugnano. There then followed miracles and cures and her fame spread throughout Italy and abroad.
                   One of St Philomena’s strongest devotees was St John Vianney who gave her constant praise for the numbers of cures achieved at her intercession. Another was the Ven. Pauline Jaricot who was miraculously cured by the intercession of St Philomena and named her as Patroness of the Living Rosary.                             
                   She is perhaps more than anything needed today. A youthful saint for today’s youth led astray by the media, the television and pop culture celebrities who believe that virtue is outmoded, and that childhood innocence must be destroyed. O glorious St Philomena, pray for today’s young people who are often given a poor start in life by the bad examples of rock and pop celebrities



    Pop celebrities – Power without responsibility




    During the last half of the twentieth century and continuing into the new millennium one of the most powerful influences on youth has been rock and pop stars. This is very sad for by their example, living lives of dissipation and excess, they have proven themselves to be the least qualified to be leaders and teachers of the young. Many believe that with the TV they have created havoc for many youngsters. The songs were often banal, sometimes ‘clever’, but hardly ever had any Christian reference. It’s almost as if the last two thousand years never happened. Their songs were to drugs, sex, materialism and even paganism. The Rolling Stones wrote a hymn to Satan calling it Sympathy for the Devil in 1968. They had a number of hits like Jumping Jack Flash selling millions around the world. There music and images were brought into homes by the TV with shows like Top of the Pops. The Beatles at the height of their fame produced their influential Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band LP which had a picture of the Satanist Aleister Crowley among the celebrities on the album cover. Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin was a devotee of Crowley’s and even bought his Boleskine House on the shore of Loch Ness where he performed Crowley’s magical rituals.
                   The three bands named above were possibility the biggest in the history of rock and pop music. Their influence was immense, sidelining Christian values with a heavy beat and a rife from their guitarists. They were heavily into drugs, the occult or eastern mysticism.
                   As sixties pop turned to the rock of the 1970 Sadomasochism raised its ugly head with Alice Cooper (a man) whose stage act involved being hanged. When TV campaigner Mary Whitehouse complained she was ridiculed by the large majority of the youth of the day; led by rock bands like Deep Purple whose song Mary Long mocked her attempts to restore common decency along with Lord Longford.
                   It no comfort to a Christian that many of the rock and pop stars died from their lifestyles with drugs and alcohol taking its toll of many leading stars
                   Today the rock and pop industry continues its glittery round of dissipation with their own award ceremonies on MTV. These days it’s the turn of women stars to flout convention and cause scandal and lead young girls astray. The Madonna and Britney Spears kiss on stage at the MTV award ceremony reverberated around the world, more with admiration for their bravery than admonishment.
                   Even where Christianity does exist in mainstream rock and pop it is so heavily diluted as to be dangerous leading many astray rather than affirming the faith. One would expect that a so called Christian band from Ireland, U2, would be able to withstand the onslaught of materialism and politically correct liberalism but no, for although three-quarters of them were baptised Catholic, U2 are more in tune with liberal Protestantism than the healthy disciplines of Catholicism. Constantly wearing their hearts on their sleeves they champion Amnesty International, now a leading supporting of abortion.
                   One cannot write a piece on the pop world without mentioning the biggest star of today, Lady Gaga whose promotion for her latest CD Born that Way involves fetish laden and sexually explicit photos of herself. Power without responsibility – you bet yah

    Part One - Pope St Uriah Heap.


    The Babylonian Captivity of the Papacy

    Part One - Pope St Uriah Heap.

    Babylon and the Vatican 
    Vatican endorsed fashion show!

    The very first time I heard of Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio was, like most Catholics, just after he had been elected Pope. Perhaps I should have but how many of us have the time to make a list of Cardinals, orthodox or not. However, alarm bells went off almost immediately, he came out on the balcony without the mozetta, the red shoulder cape that symbolises the rank of bishop and that he is prepared to be martyred for the Church. I just felt cold as I saw him there on the balcony of St Peter's I just knew immediately that this was not going to be a good papacy. Worse still, instead of blessing the crowed he asked the crowd to bless him, this type of nonsensical false humility has continued throughout his lamentable pontificate.

    Pope St Uriah Heep.
    The pope goes out of his way to being seen as humble and merciful, and as long as there is a camera and a microphone to record his humility he'll do all the gestures necessary. Washing the feet of Muslims, kneeling before Muslim "refugees" as Italy is swamped by Islam, the very same Muslims who have made such mess in their own countries that they seek a better life in the West. In watching this pope, Uriah Heep came to mind. Heep is an apparently pathetic Dickensian character from David Copperfield, who ultimately turns out to be very nasty and full of false humility.


     Very Umble pope meets and honours Katy Perry.
    Just when you thought things can't get much worse or sillier Katy Perry is invited to meet the pope and give a "lecture" on Meditation at the Vatican. Sounding like the silly Hollywood bimbo she is, she only just managed to string a few pathetic words together at a time. But there she was lecturing the bishops, priests and journalists at the Vatican on Transcendental meditation. Katy Perry, whose first big hit was "I kissed a girl", just recently forced aging nuns to sell their convent; one nun died last month in court trying to stop this siren of hedonistic paganism from getting their convent. The Vatican and the Archdiocese of Los Angeles were on Katy Perry's side in the dispute of course. They saw the dollar signs rather than the plight of the nuns. You couldn't make this up if you tried.

    Pope St Uriah Heap and Katy Perry
     (is he about to kiss her hand?)

    Pope St Uriah Heep to Ms Perry
    "Oh, indeed you must excuse me, Ms Katy, I am greatly obliged, and I should have liked you to sing your song here in the Sistine Chapel, but I am far too umble to be worthy of it"


    Katy Perry as Kitsch Angel


    So there you have it, the Babylon that is the modern secular media has captured the Church, with raunchy pop stars, Hollywood actors, and that homosexuals now populate the Vatican. And what about Cardinal Dolan and the Vatican supported Catholic themed fashion show? Words fail me! It just brings to mind the Federico Fellini film Roma, Fellini the prophet heaven forbid - please.

    BBC and MSM spread anti-Catholic hatred


    BBC Scotland say Holy Communion 
    "tastes like cardboard and smells like Hate"

    The BBC are once again bashing the Catholic Church this time it's a video made for BBC Scotland's Facebook page. And once again it's that non word, Homophobia that's being levelled at the Church claiming that we are hate inspirers. And yet faithful Catholics are the only ones showing true love towards those who have active same-sex relationships, for they are trying to save them from eternal damnation.  The vile video has been criticised by Bishop John Keenan of Paisley as it states that Holy Communion "tastes like cardboard and smells like hate" I think the only ones trying spread the stench of hatred here are the BBC and their homosexual henchmen.
     
    Alfie Evans still alive after five days without life support
    Anti-Catholic is anti-Life - in media and law
    The left-liberal pro-gay media and the left-liberal pro-gay judiciary appear to be out to kill little Alfie Evans. Alfie Evans a toddler of 23 months has been bedridden in Alder Hey Hospital Liverpool for well over a year and now the judge has ruled he must be taken off life support and left to die, despite the fact that a Roman hospital want to treat him, the Italian government has granted him Italian citizenship and there is an aircraft waiting a Liverpool airport to take him to Rome. However, the judge has now ruled he cannot leave the country - why when there may be a chance of curing him? Could it be that because they are Catholics and there is a chance of saving the little boy that the judge does not want the Catholic Church being seen in a good light? Why you ask do I make this assessment, well the judge in question is a member of the BLAGG Bar Lesbian and Gay Group and has co-authored a book titled Children and Same Sex Families.

    The Main Stream Media became quite hysterical once they realised the Evans family are Catholics. Janet Street-Porter of the Daily Mail states "poor Alfie, a tragic pawn in a religious war," Religious war! What nonsense! We just want to save a little boy's life, she goes on "his parents' fight ... hijacked by the Catholic Church." Here we go again once you mention the Catholic Church, poor little chap he doesn't stand a chance. This smells like hate to me!

    Western Media push for 3rd world war


    Is the BBC pushing us into a War with Russia?



    Just a few questions every Prayer Crusader should ask and pray about:
    • Why does the fanatically anti-Russian BBC take every opportunity to attack Russia and her allies?
    • The BBC hates the Syrian Government but why are they favouring militant Islamic groups that are simply terrorists. It's simply not proven that Syria is using chemical weapons - why should Syria, they are winning?
    • The Government are doing the BBC's bidding and so are the other ridiculous main stream media newspapers such as the hideous Sun and Daily Mail which  support the illegal action by Britain the US and France!
    The answer is quite simple, Russia is one of the few Christian countries that still regards homosexual acts are sinful and are not afraid to say so. And the homosexual led western media will do anything to get at Russia - anything! Even to the point of bringing us to a world war!

    The Communion of Saints verses the Cult of Celebrity - St Bernadette Vs Madonna

    St Bernadette a true Role Model

    In her complete and unquestioning acceptance of God’s will Saint Bernadette Soubirous can be a guiding example to us all.
                  Born in 1844 to a miller and his wife, François and Louise Soubirous, who were already on a downward path caused by their own fecklessness. At nine months she was sent to a wet-nurse at Bartrès, a few miles from Lourdes. She was nineteen months old when she returned home.
                  When she was ten her parents were evicted from their mill because of failure to pay the rent. At eleven Bernadette was sent to live with her godmother, her Aunt Bernarde, to help with the housework. When she returned home two years later her parents and brothers and sisters were living in the damp, disused town jail.  Soon she was sent away again – back to Bartrès – to help her foster mother Marie Langrès with her children. In return she was to be taught her Catechism.  As it turned out, she was not taught her Catechism but was sent to work minding sheep. In all this Bernadette never complained. It was God’s Will. It must be right. However, she deeply missed the family she loved so much. She was almost fourteen when she was allowed to return home.
                  Soon after her return she saw, several times, a joy-bringing Apparition of a young and pure Heavenly Girl. She was forbidden to return to the cave behind the rubbish-tip at Massabielle. She wept, but did not complain. She managed to wring the longed-for permission from her father in the end. She was invited to stay in the comfortable home of a pious lady, but soon chose to return home, to be with her family. Eventually, at fifteen, she was sent regularly to school, and afterwards lived with the Sisters who ran it, the lowest of the low among them. Yet there was never a complaint from her lips. All around her the Lourdes we know today was germinating, despite bitter opposition from the authorities. They even threatened Bernadette with prison if she did not admit she was mistaken about the apparitions.
                  In 1864, at the age of 22, Bernadette entered the Noviciate of the Sisters, miles away in Nevers. We are told she was always afraid of being sent away. Finally the day of her Profession made this impossible. She who had so often been “sent away” was now safe. Bernadette was happy in the convent in spite of constant ill health through her asthma, and persecution by the Novice Mistress, who of course was out of her depth before such simplicity and unquestioning acceptance. Bernadette said she liked to make a little chapel by drawing her veil close around her face. Inside that private space she could be alone with her beloved Lord.
                  Her health deteriorated. To her asthma were added tubercular abscesses.  Yet she was always cheerful. She was obedient and respectful, but sometimes ready with a shrewd or pithy comment too. She said the work God had given her was to be ill and that the healing power of Lourdes was for others, not for her. She died in 1880, aged 36. Her final agony lasted four months. She never complained. It was God’s will. Bernadette’s life was given, from beginning to end. Given – for us. What a role model!

    Madonna a false role model

    Madonna and the fires of hell on stage.
    To close for comfort, or am I being judgemental?
    Many celebrities seem to live their lives in a way that are the diametrically opposite to those of the saints. This cult of celebrity has great influence because their lives are communicated by the mass media to the rest of the world. This can be very corrosive particularly as role models for vulnerable and young. Below we discuss the influence and career of the pop singer Madonna, who has had enormous influence on young girls and women.

    Madonna Louise Ciccone Ritche was born is Bay City, Michigan, United States in 1958. In the late 1970s she moved to New York to work as a dancer. By the early 1980s after working with two pop groups she released her first solo album Madonna. It was her second album Like a Virgin that propelled to international success and notoriety. By the time this album was released she had honed her own very stylised and subversive blend of Catholic imagery with sexual themes. These themes and images became ever more outrageous as the decade wore on, with subsequent albums called True Blue and Like a Prayer.  Her styles of dress became very popular with young girls and women.
    By the time she embarked on the Who's That Girl Tour in 1988 the Vatican became so concerned by her antics, that Pope John Paul II urged Italian fans not to attend her concerts. It is sad fact regarding the media and celebrity culture that they thrive on controversy gleefully amplifying any scandal which make protecting the young and innocent extremely difficult. However, the intervention of the Pope was very timely for in early 1989, Pepsi, the soft drink manufacturer withdrew from endorsement deal with Madonna. She had produced a commercial for Pepsi in which she debuted her new song Like a Prayer.  The commercial and subsequent music video exploited many Catholic images such as the stigmata, and also showed burning crosses. Pepsi tried to convince the public that the commercial was not inappropriate but failed.
    In 1990 Madonna drew even more criticism with her Blond Ambition World Tour. Especially her very controversial performance of "Like a Virgin" during which two male dancers caressed her body before she simulated masturbation. When the tour reached Italy a lay association of Catholics, called Famiglia Domani, campaigned for a boycotted. Also in 1990 Madonna released her first greatest hits compilation album, The Immaculate Collection, which included two new songs: One was released as a single and like most of her songs reached number one. Its music video featured scenes of sadomasochism, bondage, same-sex kissing and brief nudity.
                  In October 1992 she produced a glossy coffee table book called Sex the content of which is so pornographic and spiritually deadening that I have decided not to list the perversions depicted in it. Sufficed to say that it featured many other celebrities who entered into the books spirit of depravity, one of which was Naomi Campbell Madonna’s record company Warner brothers who were to release the book through their Warner Books brand made her sign a contract that it would not include any photographs depicting religious imagery or bestiality etc. Madonna of course ignored the contract for she then formed her own multi-media company Maverick, over which she negotiated a contract with Warner Books that gave her full artistic control. She then ignored the earlier contract and demonstrated her nefarious power by including two photos that the first contract would have excluded and Warner executives could do nothing. Warner restricted books release to the English, French, Italian and Japanese languages. While the Japanese authorities quickly moved to ban the book, in the West the book sold out without even lifting an establishment eyebrow. Here we see Christendom gagged and bound by the Media. Even if any Western country had banned this book the dictatorial liberal exponents in media conglomerates like the BBC would have led the howls for free speech etc.
                  Madonna’s personal life is just as dissolute (and public) as her show business one. After divorcing her husband actor Sean Penn in 1989 she had a string of affairs and also speculation about Naomi Campbell and Sandra Bernhard. Madonna met fitness trainer Carlos Leon, in Central Park in September 1994. In 1996, she gave birth to their daughter Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon. Madonna met director Guy Ritchie, in 1999 through mutual friend, Sting. In August 2000 she gave birth to their son Rocco who was baptized by Church of Scotland Minister Susan Brown, who also presided over the marriage ceremony of Madonna and Richie at Skibo Castle the next day. Madonna is a divorced Catholic and Ritchie is a Protestant, Ms Brown is well known for her ‘progressive’ views. In October 2008 a spokeswoman announced the Madonna and Richie are to divorce.
                  Madonna has been a devotee of the Kabbalah Centre in London since the late 1990s. The Kabbalah is a form of Jewish mysticism with overtones of the Occult. Madonna has donated $21 million towards a Kabbalah school for children.
                  Madonna has had enormous influence over many impressionable young women, she is very rich and powerful. Together with many other celebrities they continue to lead society away from Jesus. We must pray for Madonna and the poor souls she may have influenced that they may repent and return to Jesus.
