ROWDYISM in the catholic church!

*******

Recalling all that INQUISITION and things, We see that Rowdyism, Torture and Terror Have existed in the church. I had Not known this Present, Existent Rowdyism, when I was Young. Even when I was 50 years old. These are the revelations within the last few years.

Here are some Very Recent Remarks from a cardinal sin! Hahahahahah! Well, if You insist on the right name, it is cardinal george pell of Melbourne.

Years ago he offered the Fosters* a little money and warned them any attempt to sue the church would be “strenuously” defended. Particularly blunt was Tim Seccull who has been the Fosters’ barrister for a decade or more: “What does the use of the adverb ‘strenuously’ add other than menace?”’ [Fosters* – ‘ the parents of the two little girls raped by Father Kevin O’Donnell.‘ See article: http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/aug/22/pell-opting-for-moral-low-road-comparing-church-to-trucking?CMP=twt_gu

Regarding Menace, I came across that in Nagarcoil. The diocese had had the Leaders of the catholic community Beaten Up! When I had gone there, there had been Two Vehicles of the usual police, and Two of the RAF, India’s Rapid Action Force. The church’s way of doing things!?

But Why are they grilling pell? What is this man doing?! …Collecting Salutes, and grinning away. Useless.

pell had said this too: ‘one of the functions of the leadership of the church is to control and eradicate this.’ Don’t even think of merely ‘Controlling’ these things, pell/francis. Eradicate them. Unfortunately, We have Seen Absolutely Nothing done in this regards.

Extreme Love for Money – On part of catholic church

*******

We say that People are Full of APATHY. And the People Prove it by posting pictures of Places, Parties and Beer Bottles, when the world is going to the Cats on a Fast Wheelbarrow. VERY FEW are the Christians who Involve themselves in Social Affairs, using the Social Network. And For Why? Below I give instances of the EXTREME LOVE FOR MONEY that has crept into our bishops and such. When the bishops love the money, Why should the People Not?!

The catholic church is not alone in being in Love with Money. But I, being a catholic, shall limit myself to that.

You Remember the post of the Docomo advert, where some Boys playing Cricket turn up at the Door of a Wife-Beater? Merely by Turning up and Ringing the Bell, They brought about Change. Changes in the Situation, the church and the World, Can be brought about, If only We All Involve Ourselves in that. This post if offered in that Hope.

Do You know that The diocese of Kottar has Many Churches Locked Up and Without Mass? Taking Just One case, The Parish of the Holy Family in Nagarcoil has, as part of its ‘property,’ Two Marriage Halls, and a Fish Market, which are Simply Minting Money. Like in Lakhs. All that money is given to the diocese. Yet, because the parish church has a Nice, and Beautiful Large Area ‘Free’ in the front, The diocese would like to build a Shopping Mall there! And the People, the Laity, Do Not Want This!

Coming to the necessity of graphics, gave a search for the Church in Google. Lo and Behold, None! But they could not play around with Google Maps. Here is the place, with the Large, Free Area Clearly Shown by Satellite. The building at lower left is the Marriage Hall, built one on top of the other.

The Eucharist has not been celebrated for nearly Two Years in the Church, except Sporadically. The Point is that The People do Not want a ‘Mall’ in the free area, but the Diocese Does! So, When the Congregation did not agree to the idea of a Mall, the diocese stopped giving them Masses! The parishioners, in this case, sadly, went to the Civil Court, asking it to Intervene, and to tell the e authorities to give them Masses and Sacraments. More than (rs) 1.2 Crores have been spent by the People in this case. These things can be verified in the courts of the area.

Of course the ecclesiastical authorities would not put it like that. They would say that Each Parish should have a Parish Council. This council would be packed with the toadies of the e-authorities! But the Laity sees through these things.

It is said that More than 50 Parishes in that area are undergoing this kind of trouble. One church has been ‘Locked Up’ for more than 3 Years!

I know of these things First Hand. It was from these journeys to the Holy Family Parish that I wrote about the 2600 Kms in in 104 Hours (Running Time), and the Young Man biting the Young Woman’s lips on the Nagarcoil station platform.

I am considered Very much a Black Sheep in the catholic circles, (Any Wonder?)! Haha. But I am Sure I am One of the Whitest of them. You can form Your own Judgement when I get the time to share on that! …the People of the Parish in question had thought of calling Me to be their Parish Priest! I pointed out to them that 1. A priest could not even offer the Eucharist in a Parish Church without the Knowledge or the Invitation of the Parish Priest, and 2. A Priest could not just ‘Appoint’ himself the PP of a parish. Bishops do that.

And I had further pointed out that, If they were to Invite me to be the PP there, and If I had agreed, the Parish would have ceased being part of the Diocese or even the catholic church. …That made them Think, and they gave up the Idea. But, Considering that the Parishioners could afford to spend rs. 1.2 Crores in litigation, (so far), It can Very Well be Imagined that the diocese would have given up its left arm before giving up the parish!

kottar diocese did involve itself in underhand tactics, using Goons, Rowdyism, and calling the police in, etc. You know how the police are called, especially in strength, like 4 Lorry Strong? With the RAF (Rapid Action Force) thrown in? Exactly. Much money must have been spent on these things.

arch bp chinnappa of chennaiSome years ago, the archbishop of Madras had been in the News, and had faced shame over matters connected with ‘church Property.’ I have No intention of Insulting anybody, but I do believe in Naming and Shaming the guilty. (PLEASE do not quote Those who live by the Sword, etc. I Know the Verse) The link below is headlined: ‘Court orders arrest of Archbishop Chinnappa.’

(http://www.newindianexpress.com/cities/chennai/article1365675.ece)

All this is becoming a matter of FRAUD. This is Rampant in Velankanni, the famous shrine near Nagappattinam. This same thing, FRAUD, raised its Ugly Head in what is called the ‘Town Parish’ in Erode. Here, the People finally gave in, saying, ‘What we gave, We gave to the Lord.’ Meaning, ‘On your head be it.’ …All these places, incidentally, are in Tamil Nadu.

From my Friend, TM, have heard that in Kerala, bishops own Rubber plantations, which bring them Lakhs of rupees as income. Very ‘bishopish,’ of course. We can see just how Well he is sticking to his duties.

You have heard of ‘Social Service Centres?’ Every diocese has one. And there must be cut-throat competition to become the head of one of those. Because you can take your cut before passing any project, giving 10% to the bishop first, of course.

Roughly one third of the world is Muslim, and one third, Christian. And the Christian Churches, organized as they are, can be Such Instruments of Change. And they were that too. But today, the ecclesiastical authorities are rolling about in money, and the Laity find it easier to Retreat into Apathy.

Gruesome – Young man Bites Girl’s Lips

From my Window in my Train compartment, I saw a middle-aged man trying to catch a young man of about 25, on the next platform. It turned out that the young man had Bitten a Girl’s Lips, and Run off. But all this I had learnt by and by. …It all started like this.

Yesterday evening (12.06.2014) I was starting one more trip back from Nagarcoil to Thanneerpalli, by Train no. 16609, the Coimbatore Express . I was fortunate enough to have a reservation, getting berth number 48 in the S5 coach. The Train was to start at 20.30 hours, and the incident happened at about 20.10 hours.

Many men and young men had started chasing the culprit. He had given them all a good chase, and I, having got down, hoping to see the proceedings, saw the police marching the fellow down the over-head stairs.

When I asked a passer-by what had happened, this is what I was told: “Paiyyan Pullaiya adichittu poittan.” This is Tamil. The word ‘Pillai,’ (pullai in the dialect), generally means a Child. So I thought that some fellow had beaten (perhaps Slapped) a child and run off. Crazy, I thought.

In the meanwhile, the fellow was in the hands of the police, who were ‘Enquiring’ into the incident. Some 50 people had gathered around. I got close enough to Touch the Girl, in actuality, and Young Woman; (Pillai also means a Young Woman!). She was holding a Kerchief to her Mouth, and looked Shocked. During all the time, she did not (could not?) remove the Kerchief from her mouth, and did not utter a Single word. But She did Identify the man as the one who had assaulted her.

The little crowd contained many who were in the same compartment where all this had happened. It seems that this young man, very drunk, had Bitten her on the Lips, and had even tried to pull her into the Toilet. If he had not been chased off and controlled by the people nearby, another Tragic Rape might have taken place.

*******

The young man and the woman were not Related; and She was travelling alone.

I was Very Surprised that She had not just whipped out her cell phone, and asked the people nearby to report the proceeding to her family/relatives/friends. Dark Waters here.

The police had been talking of taking her to the hospital. That was Indeed Necessary, not only for the Pain which would have set in after the shock wore off, but also against Tetanus, as a Bite was Involved.

On the Other hand, there was the difficulty of her losing the Train, her Reservation, and her future appointments.

Photo from Facebook. It has No Direct connection to the events described here.

Our train started off on time, and/but, the whole Train seemed to be Humming with the incident. Most of the Adults were Enraged that a Young Woman was traveling all by herself, with No escort.

As I said, I had got close enough to have had a few words with her. I could very well have photographed her. But as I considered that as adding to the Indignities she had already suffered, I refrained from doing so. But, as I have given the pertinent details in Bold letters in the second paragraph, You might find that some Friend or Relative of Yours was witness to that event.

…A City, Village, Railway Platform or whatever, is Not made safe by holding up placards, or by saying, ‘Tell the Boys Not to Rape.’ Well, Ladies, that is What Most of Us are Already saying.

But We also believe that ‘saying’ things is not going to change the situation. That takes some doing, And Much Time. 

Today’s news reports that a Mentally Handicapped Young woman was Gang raped by no less than 11 men in uttar pradesh of India. All this is Not going to change by a few Exchanges on Twitter or Facebook.

I just Hate things like Rape and Gang rape. That is because I Consider the Whole World as my Family. Changes in the Mindset take Decades of Ground work. I see Very few involved in this. If We pay attention, We will see that Mothers bring up their ‘boys’ under the impression that they are some kind of ‘superior’ beings. For more thoughts on this, please click here.

But till those Good days come, where Respect for Women will prevail, and when Women can Walk Alone in Safety, Do Not go out alone in such major ways. Unfortunately, there are crazy young men ready and eager to Bite Young Girls on the Lips. They seem to be Experts at Noticing and Singling out Lone, Female Travelers. It could finally come down to the question of: Are You going to Get Tetanus, or Are You going to Miss Your Train?
