The Evolution Sisters

In all of the world's major religions women are deemed inferior to men. Women are men's belongings and can have no authority over men. Corinthians 14:34,35, Genesis 3:16 (Bible), Women verse 11, 38, 282 (Koran).

More than 1 in 3 women worldwide have experienced physical or sexual violence in their life, and one in five will be the victim of rape or atttempted rape. 200 million women in 30 countries have suffered female genital mutilation. At least 5000 women are murdered each year in honour killings. In Congo on average 48 women are raped every hour.

For thousands of years matriarchal societies existed in Africa and they prospered (Nigerian Zazzau, Sudanese Kandake, Angolan Nzinga, Ghanese Ashanti, black ancient Egypt) . By bringing in an oppressive form of colonial christianity in Africa millenia of prosperous matriarchy were replaced with oppressive patriarchy.

The Holy Truth

In1933 the Vatican signed a Konkordat with Nazi Germany. This was a victory for Hitler, and gave many German catholics the message that national socialism was acceptable. A large number of German clergy collaborated with the Nazi's and some of those were actively involved in "the final solution".
(Hitler's priests, ISBN9780875803845)
Jozef Ratzinger grew up in that era, was a member of the Hitler Jugend from 1941 and was drafted to serve in the Luftwaffe and Wehrmacht respectively from 1943 - 1945.

60 years later he became the face of a Catholic Church with a large homosexual contingent (Cf. Darius Oko, Mit dem Papst gegen Homohäresie, "Theologisches" 9/10 (2012) pp. 403-426), pedophilia cases and other misbehaviour still emerging regularly.
