10 comments on The Craziest & Wildest Catholic Conspiracy Theories
I agree with you RD about the Pope JPI conspiracy theory as far as him discovering something within 33 days of his papacy and within the papal archives. He would be lucky to get to the archives in 33 days what with all the protocol and events going on. He more than likely died from a heart attack although there was no autopsy. They probably ran him ragged.
I had never heard of the 1958 Communist conspiracy as far as threatening the election of a pope. That was interesting.
I had heard more than one conspiracy theory about who killed Lincoln but never knew about the Jesuit conspiracy. I know Lincoln read his Bible but didn’t know he wrote papers against the papists and their influence in America.
I had heard of Pope Joan who was Pope during the 9th century. Yes, it had been accepted for a long while as a fact. At one time I had read about her but can’t remember all the points of this story any longer. The story of the Pope’s chair is less believable than a Pope Joan. How truly tacky. She was considered a historical figure but RS says no documents exist to prove her papacy. I quality his statement as far as no documents he has seen or heard about. Maybe Pope JPI found the documents in his archive hunt. A new conspiracy theory tacked onto two old ones courtesy of moi.
How apt to have a show on conspiracies since we have a jackass in our daily news rattling on and on about them and making them up as he goes along with not even a nod to common sense or credibility or decency.
Amen & well said! Especially that part about the “jackass in the daily news” – I couldn’t have said it better myself!
Thank you Lisa nice of you to say!
Thank you for sharing this inspiring and funny topic on “craziest and wildest Catholic conspiracy theories”. I really enjoyed watching your shows!
Thank you Fathers !
There’s a lot of reasons to think Pope JohnPaul 1 was dispatched. I’m not saying it happened, I’m not saying it didn’t. But after reading a lot of opinions giving plausible reasons why he may have been, I remain open minded, prepared not to be totally shocked if indeed it transpires that he was in fact murdered.
Another good book about the nazis is Christ in Dachau.
This was a GREAT show!!!! I was wondering if you could give me the title & author of the book you spoke of debunking “Hitler’s Pope” (I heard that conspiracy theory, and knew it was BS). I would really like to read it. Are there any books you would recommend on The Pope’s involvement in the Valkyrie plot? I would really like to read those too. On that same subject, IDK if y’all knew this, but Klaus Von Stauffenburg was a devout Catholic. Leave it to us to rid the world of evil, right? (Even though that plan didn’t work out…..it would have if the meeting took place in the bunker as planned). Where did you get the information on the fake Baptismal certificates for Jewish people? Never heard that before.
I also watched a documentary on the Vatican that talked about the Pope’s actions during WWII. They had a woman on there who discovered that a Jewish woman was working in the Vatican at the time. The woman on the documentary said that when she applied to work at the Vatican, she had to provide documentation of the sacraments she received, and yet, this woman was Jewish and working in the Vatican. I think that the Pope didn’t say much publicly about Hitler & Mussolini because not only was he surrounded by Fascist Italy, but also that speaking out would have prevented the Church from helping in secret.
I always enjoy y’all’s shows. Even when I’m in a bad mood, y’all make me laugh.
Please pray for my niece and nephew, who are receiving the Sacraments of Confirmation & First Communion, respectively,
God Bless all of you!
You three have changed my life during this virus. I’ve forwarded your link to a number of my Houston fellow Knights. You have no idea how I connect with the three of you.
I live in Houston so let me know how I can offer time and treasure (no talent)to your gift to us, other than I am a proud Paton of your show.
I never heard the story about the alleged conspiracy to elect John XXIII. It would have been worth mentioning the Hungarian Uprising that took place 2 years earlier in 1956. This could have put the theories in better context.
