HOW THE ROMAN EMPIRE AKA CATHOLIC CHURCH CREATED ISLAM
This article post called How The Catholics Created Islam is re-posted from the The True Story Of Revelation 12 blog, with gratitude to them, and to reader Chitta, who shared this link with me last week in response to another blogpost I wrote here (I forget which at the moment).
The astonishing story of how the Vatican created Islam
comes from a former Jesuit priest by the name of Alberto
Rivera. The story was told to him by Cardinal Bea while
he was at the Vatican.
“What I’m going to tell you is what I learned in secret
briefings in the Vatican when I was a Jesuit priest,
under oath and induction. A Jesuit cardinal named
Augustine Bea showed us how desperately the Roman
Catholics wanted Jerusalem at the end of the third
century. Because of its religious history and its
strategic location, the Holy City was considered a
priceless treasure. A scheme had to be developed to make
Jerusalem a Roman Catholic city.
“The great untapped source of manpower that could do this
job was the children of Ishmael. The poor Arabs fell
victim to one of the most clever plans ever devised by
the powers of darkness. Early Christians went everywhere
with the gospel setting up small churches, but they met
heavy opposition. Both the Jews and the Roman government
persecuted the believers in Christ to stop their spread.
But the Jews rebelled against Rome, and in 70 AD, Roman
armies under General Titus smashed Jerusalem and
destroyed the great Jewish temple which was the heart of
Jewish worship…in fulfillment of Christ’s prophecy in
“On this holy placed today where the temple once stood,
the Dome of the Rock Mosque stands as Islam’s second most
holy place. Sweeping changes were in the wind.
Corruption, apathy, greed, cruelty, perversion and
rebellion were eating at the Roman Empire, and it was
ready to collapse. The persecution against Christians was
useless as they continued to lay down their lives for the
gospel of Christ.
“The only way Satan could stop this thrust was to create
a counterfeit “Christian” religion to destroy the work of
God. The solution was in Rome. Their religion had come
from ancient Babylon and all it needed was a face-lift.
This didn’t happen overnight, but began in the writings
of the ‘early church fathers’.
“It was through their writings that a new religion would
take shape. The statue of Jupiter in Rome was eventually
called St. Peter, and the statue of Venus was changed to
the Virgin Mary. The site chosen for its headquarters was
on one of the seven hills called ‘Vaticanus’, the place
of the diving serpent where the Satanic temple of Janus
“The great counterfeit religion was Roman Catholicism,
called ‘Mystery, Babylon the Great, the Mother of Harlots
and Abominations of the Earth’- Revelation 17:5. She was
raised up to block the gospel, slaughter the believers in
Christ, establish religions, create wars and make the
nations drunk with the wine of her fornication as we will
“Three major religions have one thing in common – each
has a holy place where they look for guidance. Roman
Catholicism looks to the Vatican as the Holy City. The
Jews look to the wailing wall in Jerusalem, and the
Muslims look to Mecca as their Holy City. Each group
believes that they receive certain types of blessings for
the rest of their lives for visiting their holy place. In
the beginning, Arab visitors would bring gifts to the
‘House of God’, and the keepers of the Kaaba were
gracious to all who came. Some brought their idols and,
not wanting to offend these people, their idols were
placed inside the sanctuary. It is said that the Jews
looked upon the Kaaba as an outlying tabernacle of the
Lord with veneration until it became polluted with idols.
“In a tribal contention over a well (Zamzam), the treasure
of the Kaaba and the offerings that pilgrims had given
were dumped down the well and it was filled with sand –
it disappeared. Many years later Adb Al-Muttalib was
given visions telling him where to find the well and its
treasure. He became the hero of Mecca, and he was
destined to become the grandfather of Muhammad. Before
this time, Augustine became the bishop of North Africa
and was effective in winning Arabs to Roman Catholicism,
including whole tribes. It was among these Arab converts
to Catholicism that the concept of looking for an Arab
“Muhammad’s father died from illness and sons born to
great Arab families in places like Mecca were sent into
the desert to be suckled and weaned and spend some of
their childhood with Bedouin tribes for training and to
avoid the plagues in the cities.
“After his mother and grandfather also died, Muhammad was
with his uncle when a Roman Catholic monk learned of his
identity and said, “Take your brother’s son back to his
country and guard him against the Jews, for by god, if
they see him and know of him that which I know, they will
construe evil against him. Great things are in store for
this brother’s son of yours.”
“The Roman Catholic monk had fanned the flames for future
Jewish persecutions at the hands of the followers of
Muhammad. The Vatican desperately wanted Jerusalem
because of its religious significance, but was blocked by
“Another problem was the true Christians in North Africa
who preached the gospel. Roman Catholicism was growing in
power, but would not tolerate opposition. Somehow the
Vatican had to create a weapon to eliminate both the Jews
and the true Christian believers who refused to accept
Roman Catholicism. Lookng to North Africa, they saw the
multitudes of Arabs as a source of manpower to do their
dirty work. Some Arabs had become Roman Catholic, and
could be used in reporting information to leaders in
Rome. Others were used in an underground spy network to
carry out Rome’s master plan to control the great
multitudes of Arabs who rejected Catholicism. When ‘St
Augustine’ appeared on the scene, he knew what was going
on. His monasteries served as bases to seek out and
destroy Bible manuscripts owned by the true Christians.
“The Vatican wanted to create a messiah for the Arabs,
someone they could raise up as a great leader, a man with
charisma whom they could train, and eventually unite all
the non-Catholic Arabs behind him, creating a mighty army
that would ultimately capture Jerusalem for the pope. In
the Vatican briefing, Cardinal Bea told us this story:
‘A wealthy Arabian lady who was a faithful follower of
the pope played a tremendous part in this drama. She was
a widow named Khadijah. She gave her wealth to the church
and retired to a convent, but was given an assignment.
She was to find a brilliant young man who could be used
by the Vatican to create a new religion and become the
messiah for the children of Ishmael. Khadijah had a
cousin named Waraquah,, who was also a very faithful
Roman Catholic and the Vatican placed him in a critical
role as Muhammad’s advisor. He had tremendous influence
‘Teachers were sent to young Muhammad and he had
intensive training. Muhammad studied the works of St.
Augustine which prepared him for his “great calling.” The
Vatican had Catholic Arabs across North Africa spread the
story of a great one who was about to rise up among the
people and be the chosen one of their God.
‘While Muhammad was being prepared, he was told that his
enemies were the Jews and that the only true Christians
were Roman Catholic. He was taught that others calling
themselves Christians were actually wicked impostors and
should be destroyed. Many Muslims believe this.
‘Muhammad began receiving “divine revelations” and his
wife’s Catholic cousin Waraquah helped interpret them.
From this came the Koran. In the fifth year of Muhammad’s
mission, persecution came against his followers because
they refused to worship the idols in the Kaaba.
‘Muhammad instructed some of them to flee to Abysinnia
where Negus, the Roman Catholic king accepted them
because Muhammad’s views on the virgin Mary were so close
to Roman Catholic doctrine. These Muslims received
protection from Catholic kings because of Muhammad’s
‘Muhammad later conquered Mecca and the Kaaba was cleared
of idols. History proves that before Islam came into
existence, the Sabeans in Arabia worshiped the moon-god
who was married to the sun-god. They gave birth to three
goddesses who were worshipped throughout the Arab world
as “Daughters of Allah” An idol excavated at Hazor in
Palestine in 1950’s shows Allah sitting on a throne with
the crescent moon on his chest.
‘Muhammad claimed he had a vision from Allah and was
told, “You are the messenger of Allah.” This began his
career as a prophet and he received many messages. By the
time Muhammad died, the religion of Islam was exploding.
The nomadic Arab tribes were joining forces in the name
of Allah and his prophet, Muhammad.
‘Some of Muhammad’s writings were placed in the Koran,
others were never published. They are now in the hands of
high ranking holy men (Ayatollahs) in the Islamic faith.’
“When Cardinal Bea shared with us in the Vatican, he
said, these writings are guarded because they contain
information that links the Vatican to the creation of
Islam. Both sides have so much information on each other,
that if exposed, it could create such a scandal that it
would be a disaster for both religions.
“In their “holy” book, the Koran, Christ is regarded as
only a prophet. If the pope was His representative on
earth, then he also must be a prophet of God. This caused
the followers of Muhammad to fear and respect the pope as
another “holy man.”
“The pope moved quickly and issued bulls granting the
Arab generals permission to invade and conquer the
nations of North Africa. The Vatican helped to finance
the building of these massive Islamic armies in exchange
for three favors:
1. Eliminate the Jews and Christians (true believers,
which they called infidels).
2. Protect the Augustinian Monks and Roman Catholics.
3. Conquer Jerusalem for “His Holiness” in the Vatican.
“As time went by, the power of Islam became tremendous –
Jews and true Christians were slaughtered, and Jerusalem
fell into their hands. Roman Catholics were never
attacked, nor were their shrines, during this time. But
when the pope asked for Jerusalem, he was surprised at
their denial! The Arab generals had such military success
that they could not be intimidated by the pope – nothing
could stand in the way of their own plan.
“Under Waraquah’s direction, Muhammad wrote that Abraham
offered Ishmael as a sacrifice. The Bible says that Isaac
was the sacrifice, but Muhammad removed Isaac’s name and
inserted Ishmael’s name. As a result of this and
Muhammad’s vision, the faithful Muslims built a mosque,
the Dome of the Rock, in Ishmael’s honor on the site of
the Jewish temple that was destroyed in 70 AD. This made
Jerusalem the 2nd most holy place in the Islam faith. How
could they give such a sacred shrine to the pope without
causing a revolt?
“The pope realized what they had created was out of
control when he heard they were calling “His Holiness” an
infidel. The Muslim generals were determined to conquer
the world for Allah and now they turned toward Europe.
Islamic ambassadors approached the pope and asked for
papal bulls to give them permission to invade European
“The Vatican was outraged; war was inevitable. Temporal
power and control of the world was considered the basic
right of the pope. He wouldn’t think of sharing it with
those whom he considered heathens.
“The pope raised up his armies and called them crusades
to hold back the children of Ishmael from grabbing
Catholic Europe. The crusades lasted centuries and
Jerusalem slipped out of the pope’s hands.
“Turkey fell and Spain and Portugal were invaded by
Islamic forces. In Portugal, they called a mountain
village “Fatima” in honor of Muhammad’s daughter, never
dreaming it would become world famous.
“Years later when the Muslim armies were poised on the
islands of Sardinia and Corsica, to invade Italy, there
was a serious problem. The Islamic generals realized they
were too far extended. It was time for peace talks. One
of the negotiators was Francis of Assisi.
“As a result, the Muslims were allowed to occupy Turkey
in a “Christian” world, and the Catholics were allowed to
occupy Lebanon in the Arab world. It was also agreed that
the Muslims could build mosques in Catholic countries
without interference as long as Roman Catholicism could
flourish Arab countries.
“Cardinal Bea told us in Vatican briefings that both the
Muslims and Roman Catholics agreed to block and destroy
the efforts of their common enemy, Bible-believing
Christianm missionaries. Through these concordats, Satan
blocked the children of Ishmael from a knowledge of
Scripture and the truth.
“A light control was kept on Muslims from the Ayatollah
down through the Islamic priests, nuns and monks. The
Vatican also engineers a campaign of hatred between the
Muslim Arabs and the Jews. Before this, they had co-
“The Islamic community looks on the Bible-believing
missionary as a devil who brings poison to the children
of Allah. This explains years of ministry in those
countries with little results.
“The next plan was to control Islam. In 1910, Portugal
was going Socialistic. Red flags were appearing and the
Catholic Church was facing a major problem. Increasing
numbers were against the church.
“The Jesuits wanted Russia involved, and the location of
this vision at Fatima could play a key part in pulling
Islam to the Mother Church.
“In 1917, the Virgin appeared in Fatima. “The Mother of
God” was a smashing success, playing to overflow crowds.
As a result, the Socialists of Portugal suffered a major
“Roman Catholics world-wide began praying for the
conversion of Russia and the Jesuits invented the Novenas
to Fatima which they could perform throughout North
Africa, spreading good public relations to the Muslim
world. The Arabs thought they were honoring the daughter
of Muhammad, which is what the Jesuits wanted them to
“As a result of the vision of Fatima, Pope Pius XII
ordered his Nazi army to crush Russia and the Orthodox
religion and make Russia Roman Catholic.” A few years
after he lost World war II, Pope Pius XII startled the
world with his phoney dancing sun vision to keep Fatima
in the news. It was great religious show biz and the
world swallowed it.
“Not surprisingly, Pope Pius was the only one to see this
vision. As a result, a group of followers has grown into
a Blue Army world-wide, totaling millions of faithful
Roman Catholics ready to die for the blessed virgin.
“But we haven’t seen anything yet. The Jesuits have their
Virgin Mary scheduled to appear four or five times in
China, Russia, and major appearance in the U.S.
“What has this got to do with Islam? Note Bishop Sheen’s
statement: “Our Lady’s appearances at Fatima marked the
turning point in the history of the world’s 350 million
Muslims. After the death of his daughter, Muhammad wrote
that she “is the most holy of all women in Paradise, next
“He believed that the Virgin Mary chose to be known as
Our Lady of Fatima as a sign and a pledge that the
Muslims who believe in Christ’s virgin birth, will come
to believe in His divinity.

“Bishop Sheen pointed out that the pilgrim virgin statues
of Our Lady of Fatima were enthusiastically received by
Muslims in Africa, India, and elsewhere, and that many
Muslims are now coming into the Roman Catholic Church.”

Investigative Journalist And Vatican Researcher Greg Syzmanski [speaking about] Alberto Rivera
The Widow Of Former Jesuit Priest, Fr. Alberto Rivera,
Said The Vatican And Jesuit Order Killed Her Husband,
Then Wanted To Dig Up His Bones, Taking Them Back To the
Nury Rivera tells Americans how her husband was
persecuted and killed for trying to tell Vatican secrets
about how they infiltrate churches and the U.S.
government. She also tells how she has been harassed,
attacked and her life threatened by agents of the Vatican
and Jesuit Order.
20 Feb 2007
By Greg Szymanski
Nury Rivera came forward with conviction and courage
Monday on international radio, saying her husband was
assassinated by the evil Jesuit Order.
“They poisoned him and I am 100 per cent sure of that,”
said the widow of the late high level Jesuit priest, Fr.
Alberto Rivera, killed in the early 1990’s after
defecting from Vatican treachery and trying to tell the
truth about the real intentions and satanic practices of
the Jesuit Order.
Fr. Rivera became a Jesuit priest, worked in the Vatican
and eventually assigned the deceptive job of infiltrating
U.S Christian churches with the intent to destroy
Protestant pastors while controlling doctrine favorable
“After my husband left the Church, found Jesus and
decided to tell the world about Vatican deception, the
Jesuits did everything to keep him quiet and discredit
him,” said Ms. Rivera, who has been harassed, her life
threatened and her house broken into on many occasions by
Vatican agents in order to steal her husband’s documents
“Why would they do this if what Alberto preached and what
I and saying, is not the truth,” added Rivera. “After
Alberto was killed, they even came to me saying if I told
them where he was buried that I would be taken care of
for life. I, of course, refused because they wanted to
take his body back to the Vatican because these men
worship death, not life and the beauty of God.”
According to other researchers who have documented
satanic rituals and worshipping taking place in the
bowels and secret catacombs of the Vatican, Rivera’s
bones were to be placed among the bones of many others
throughout history who have tried to alert the world
about Vatican and Jesuit secrets.
“I think people can see the truth once they see how they
have tried to cover-up Alberto’s life and death,” added
Rivera. “The Vatican hierarchy worships evil and the
devil. They are in the midst of taking over America,
infiltrating the governments and religions of the world
in order to make everyone loyal to the Pope’s rule.
“Alberto tried to tell the world about their plans for
America and how they were putting people in power who
were loyal to the New World Order and the Pope and not to
their own countries. Their evil knows no boundaries and
when Alberto tried to alert people, they had him killed.
“I have always been open and honest about what happened
to Alberto and the message he was trying to get out. I
love America and it is difficult to see what is happening
During the radio interview on Greg Szymanski’s radio
show, The Investigative Journal on the Republic
Broadcasting Network at http://www.rbnlive.com, Rivera said she
learned the Vatican intends to turn this country into a
fascist state with the help of the Bush family and other
traitors who have loyalty to the Pope, not the people in
their countries. She added that the illegal immigration
of millions of Mexicans and South American’s crossing the
U.S. border is being assisted with Vatican money and
support, knowing this provides a population easily
manipulated by the false teachings of the Vatican
Further, the Vatican intends to use these millions of
third world countries as a voting base to blindly follow
the Pope and elect politicians “in bed with the New World
Like the murder of Abraham Lincoln and JFK, Vatican
involvement with Fr. Rivera’s murder has been kept out of
the mainstream news, indicating a total takeover of the
media has been accomplished.
“It is only people in the alternative like you, Greg, who
have the courage to fight these people because it is
necessary to get out the truth,” said Rivera. “The truth
is the only thing that sets you free and Americans need to
identify the real enemy trying to steal their minds,
bodies and souls.”
And as Rivera said, the Fr. Rivera story has been a well
kept secret from mainstream America since it directly
indicts the real evil-doers – The Vatican and Jesuit
Although his story has been hidden, a recent article in
the Arctic Beacon is printed below to give you a better
idea of the Fr. Alberto Rivera story and the true evil
hiding behind the cloak of the Catholic Church.
Confession No. 4: Did Jesuit Fr. Staempfle Write Mein
Kampf For Hitler? Is George W. Bush The New Jesuit-Backed
Roman Catholic Star?
(Oh, and this… https://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/is-angela-merkel-adolph-hitlers-daughter.1182488/ – dot-connecting the EU of ROME/LUCIFER)
According to the late Jesuit priest, Fr. Alberto Rivera,
whose job was to infiltrate and destroy Protestant
ministries, he was privy to sensitive Vatican briefings
and documents, revealing the Jesuit role in backing
Hitler. Further, he was told by Cardinal Augustine Bea
that Nazi gold was deposited in Vatican accounts in Swiss
By Greg Szymanski
According to the late Jesuit priest, Fr. Alberto Rivera,
a fellow Jesuit named Fr. Staempfle wrote Mein Kampf, as
the stage was being set for Germany’s new Roman Catholic
star, Adolf Hitler.
The main question today is what priest is writing the
script for the Jesuit-backed Roman Catholic star,
President George W. Bush?
Following the old adage “all things change but everything
remains the same,” a look back into Hitler’s rise to
power may provide important clues as to whether the
Jesuits are also backing Bush.
To begin this Sunday’s fourth Confession on the banks of
the truth-filled body of water called Brushy Creek, it
must be said that Fr. Rivera was a rare species, being a
former Jesuit priest who decided to speak the truth about
the “military order’ disguised as a group of God-loving
disciples of Jesus.
Most other disillusioned Jesuits like Rivera have
remained silent since they know double-crossing the
Society of Jesus high command means sure death,
especially if you’re someone who knew too much like Fr.
What made Rivera dangerous to the Jesuits and probably
led to his death, was Rivera’s sensitive and trusted
position within the Order to infiltrate Protestant
ministries and destroy them. Due to his sensitive work,
he was given special Vatican clearance to the secret
underground library catacombs where, according to Rivera,
the true history of the world remains buried for the
chosen few, who have sworn by blood oath, never to reveal
the dark and sinister contents.
And after reading how the Catholic Church manipulated
history in its drive to rule the world, one very
fortunate day for mankind he decided to alert the world
and place his faith in Christ alone while leaving behind
the Jesuits and the Catholic Church.
Being released from his vows, Rivera then married,
started his own ministry and tried until he died under
suspicious circumstances in 1997, to spread the word of
truth. For his actions, he instantly became a hated and
hunted man by the Church, as he shockingly admitted “No
Jesuit can leave the Order alive, if he knows the real
truth and talks about it.”
And it appears his words rang true with his untimely 1997
death. But before Rivera died, he passed his message on
in a very, very unique way – through a series of four
colorful comic books – geared at reaching the masses by
highlighting his important message in a non-traditional
In his collection of full-color comic books carried by
Chick Publications, entitled Alberto, Double-Cross, The
Godfathers and The Force, Rivera tells his story,
revealing how the Catholic Church helped start World Wars
I and II, as well as revealing the Church’s place in
Bible prophecy. His story also details how the Church was
involved in the startup of Islam, later turning against
the Pope in rebellion, as well as detailing how America’s
present phony war on terror is basically “the Vatican’s
Revenge.” [Links at end of article to purchase these on Amazon – via http://eatingtoascend.com ]
When Rivera first went public, Rome [an entity: Lucifer] became extremely
angered and called upon her ecumenical contacts to go on
the attack, attacking him like they always do by
attacking the messenger. The Vatican, not wanting to
publicly discuss the serious charges leveled against the
Jesuits and the hierarchy of the Church, decided to
discredit him personally, hoping people would then
discount his message.
The most notable of these personal attacks was an open
letter published in Christianity Today, copied and
distributed around the world many times since the 1980s.
However, after reading this attack, James Houston, who
had read enough of history to believe Rivera’s charges,
came forward in defense of Rivera with a detailed report.
Germany and Hitler
Rivera learned many hidden truths about the Jesuits and
the Vatican, but none were more important than the story
behind Hitler’s rise to power.
Sounding strangely similar to what is happening to
America, in 1923 Germany was in a downward spiral. The
monetary system was teetering on the brink of disaster
and the German people were sick and tired of war, similar
to the majority of Americans today calling for the end of
the Middle East conflict.
“The German people blamed the Kaiser for the whole thing
and had him and his government thrown out of office,”
writes Rivera in the comic he entitled The Godfathers.
“The communists were fighting to take over and the new
government was very weak. Some men wanted the German
people to run their government like they did in France
and were attempting to make Germany a Republic. The Pope
was outraged and with that the Republic was doomed to
“Two things the Vatican despises are Protestantism and
Democracy. The Jesuits were then called upon to stop this
new Weimer Republic. Two men then destroyed it: One was
Franz Von Papan and the other was Pacelli, who later
become Pope Pius XII.”
Rivera then claims how he read in the secret Vatican how
the stage was then set for Germany’s new Roman Catholic
star, Adolf Hitler, as a Jesuit priest by the name of Fr.
Staempfle actually wrote Mein Kampf, the book being the
master plan of the Jesuits for Hitler’s takeover of
“Another great inquisition was about to begin,” said
Rivera. “Instead of wearing Dominican robes, they were
wearing Nazi uniforms. Hitler’s Brown Shirts, called
Nazis, backed by the Vatican used the same tactic as
Mussolini, beating and bullying all opposition into
submission, including Roman Catholics. Bloody street
battles between Roman Catholics who were Nazis and Roman
Catholics who were communists took place. The prize being
The symbol for this new inquisition was the Swastika,
which of course was a Masonic symbol. According to
Rivera’s research, Hitler was the Vatican’s choice, just
like Lech Walesa in Poland and the new American neo-con
With this powerful backing, Hitler was destined to
triumph as his close associates all had one thing in
common: They were all Roman Catholics and loyal to the
Vatican and according to Rivera, “all had Jewish blood in
their veins, including Pacelli, the man who later became
Pope Pius XII. When it became known that Pope Pius XI
supported Hitler, the Roman Catholic vote swept Hitler
into power in 1933.”
The world now faced a terrible machine called the Third
Reich, in which the Vatican became the master. History
then forces the same question today: Is the Vatican now
the master of the strange, fascist regime now controlling
the White House, called the neo-cons?
Although Rivera is no longer with us to provide an
answer, a statement by the publisher of his books
revealed one of his startling predictions as well as
laying groundwork for the present-day conflict in the
Middle East, leading to World War III.
In 1985, ex-Jesuit Alberto Rivera predicted that the
Vatican would eventually apologize for its part in the
German Holocaust, the inquisition, and the slaughter of
Jews and Muslims during the Crusades. His prediction was
based on secret briefings that he attended while a Jesuit
This prediction came true as Pope John Paul II publicly
asked forgiveness for the sins of Roman Catholics through
the ages. The pope and several other Vatican leaders
conducted a “Day of Pardon Mass” at St. Peter’s Basilica.
To the Jews he said, “We are deeply saddened by the
behavior of those who in the course of history have
caused these children of yours to suffer, and asking your
forgiveness we wish to commit ourselves to genuine
In reference to the Inquisition, Cardinal Ratzinger (The
New Pope) confessed, “Even men of the church, in the name
of faith and morals, have sometimes used methods not in
keeping with the Gospel.” The pope responded, “Have mercy
on your sinful children.”
Some Jewish leaders were unimpressed. Israel’s chief
rabbi, Meir Lau, said he was “deeply frustrated” by the
pope’s failure to mention the Holocaust by name.
Leaders from several Jewish organizations have been
pressing the Vatican to open its World War II archives to
investigators. They claim that, at best, Vatican leaders
and Pope Pius XII, remained silent during Hitler’s
genocide against the Jews and others.
Of course, few are willing to present the whole truth,
that Roman Catholic leaders, including the pope, were
instrumental in Hitler’s rise to power and that Hitler
was simply carrying out persecution against the Jews
which the Vatican had fostered for centuries.**
Another reason for opening the archives is to determine
what happened to hundreds of millions of dollars worth of
gold stolen by the Nazis from Jews and other conquered
nations. Much of it has been traced to Swiss banks who
have made a token refund to Holocaust survivors.
But Dr. Rivera was told by the head of the Jesuit order,
Cardinal Augustin Bea, that a special train flying
Vatican flags was allowed through the Allied military
lines. The Americans were told it was a “mercy train”
carrying medical supplies. In reality it carried Nazi
gold which was deposited in Vatican accounts in Swiss
banks.*** In July, 1997, a documentary film crew
discovered a US government document stating that the
pro-Nazi Croatian Ustachis sent gold coins worth 250
million Swiss francs to the Vatican which was later used
to finance the “rat line” of fleeing Nazi leaders to
sanctuary in Spain and Argentina. [Where Hitler and many SS went.]
The Vatican denies this but still refuses to open its
archives. In January of this year, Ukranian and Jewish
concentration camp survivors filed a class action lawsuit
in San Francisco, California against the Vatican Bank.
The complaint calls for the Vatican Bank, the Fransciscan
Order and other European banks to give an accounting of
the Nazi Ustashi Gold and for restitution for the victims
and their families.
The Roman Catholic Institution has steadfastly denied
that Dr. Rivera ever was a priest, much less privy to
secret Vatican briefings. However, it seems unlikely that
it was just a lucky guess when he made these statements
15 years ago.
Are Vatican accusations, claiming Rivera is a phony,
The Canadian Protestant League, not connected with Rivera
or his publisher, conducted an investigation. They
printed their findings in 1983, 14 years before Rivera’s
suspicious death. Here is a portion of their report,
finding Rivera is exactly what he says he is: a former
Jesuit priest who was converted to Christ and the vicious
character assassination attempts made against him only go
to prove the veracity of his statements about Rome.
“Booklets produced in comic form by Chick Publications in
cooperation with Dr. Alberto M. R. Rivera (viz.: ALBERTO,
DOUBLE-CROSS, THE GODFATHERS, SABOTAGE, THE BIG BETRAYAL,
and more recently, THE FORCE) have excited angry
responses from the Roman Catholic hierarchy across this
continent. The said publications have been called hate
propaganda, and demands have been made that they be
banned. These are familiar demands, used for generations
against those who have dared to expose and oppose the
false claims, doctrines and practices of Roman
“The books have been described by papal representatives
(as well as by those duped by Jesuit propaganda) as
‘absurd, bigoted, a comedy of errors, condemning out of
hatred, dangerous to the cause of Christ, disgusting,
distortion of truth, evil spirit inspired, false, filthy,
hatred, hogwash, lewd, lies, malicious, playing fast and
loose with truth, Satan possessed, shameful, spiritual
pornography, trash, stupidity, ugly,’ as well as ‘working
for the Devil and not Jesus, immoral and indecent!’
“Christian bookstores have been coaxed, awed and
threatened into discontinuing sales of the Crusaders
series, and every other piece of material published by
Chick – even its Gospel tracts.
“At the head office of the Canadian Protestant League, we
have attracted a little more than our share of attention,
innuendo and threat by legal and other means. (We only
started to handle the material when we became aware of
the aggressive campaign to remove it from the scene.) Two

DOUBLE-CROSS should be designated as ‘Hate Literature,’
and appropriate charges laid. We have been visited by two
inspectors of Metropolitan Toronto Police, enquiring
about our involvement, and speaking of the possibility of
action against us.
“We made no effort to hide any of our activity, but
admitted freely that we were selling the items they were
asking about. We repeated to them what we had told
others: we would welcome a charge being laid against us
under the Hate Propaganda Section of Canada’s criminal
“We believe that when any pressure group can successfully
intimidate all Christian booksellers across Canada into
refraining to sell certain literature because it is
OFFENSIVE to some, then surely someone ought to be ready
to focus attention on such a threat to faith and freedom
in this land of ours.
“We are prepared to take that action.
“We have been reminded of the possibility of a $6,000.00
fine or a two year prison sentence. We have insisted, if
and when this should take place, that no one will pay the
fine! Perhaps this will arouse apathetic Canadians – and
“One would expect Roman Catholics (feeling their own
institutions were assailed) to rally every effort to
offset the most effective, fruitful harvest the said
literature is able to report, but the more tragic form of
attack from those who glory in the label of ‘evangelical
Christians’ makes sad reading indeed!
“Christian Reader, Cornerstone and Our Sunday Visitor,
published an article authored by Gary Metz entitled, ‘The
Uncomical Alberto Rivera,’ a prominent article in
“More recently, an effort by Brian Onken in Forward, the
official organ of Christian Research Institute, appeared
under the title, ‘Alberto: The Truth About His Story.’ In
this ‘study,’ Dr. Rivera, the converted Jesuit priest, is
represented as being a dishonest fraud. Areas are named
in the United States wherein Alberto was allegedly being
sought for questioning.
“The articles demand a response from those who are
jealous in contending for the faith and to conserve our
freedom. Concerned Christians wish to hear answers to
“Is Jack Chick a totally irresponsible publisher?
“Is Alberto Rivera the lying sensationalist he is
caricatured as being?
“Is Alberto truly God’s instrument for our day to bring
about the longed-for reawakening among duped Roman
Catholics, so that they can be truly won to Jesus Christ
as Lord, Saviour, Mediator and Advocate; to the Bible as
the Word of God, authoritative, free from error,
inspired, and reliable to judge all other authorities;
and directing people to come out of an organization that
“Why the terrible abuse and attack upon these two
“Why has someone not followed up on some of the charges
made? Can we not analyze the charges? Can we not
forensically analyze the charges made?
“Will the men and magazines, hailed by many as
authoritative in the field of evangelism, allow us to
examine their charges? We want to know if they have a
case at all!
“If their charges can be logically and evidentially
supported, so that we must see Dr. Rivera as guilty
beyond a reasonable doubt, then we must re-examine our
own position and alter our stance of supporting Chick and
“Now – what is contained in the expose, coming to us in
these articles? Alas, they are being accepted by those
who have never taken the trouble to thoughtfully and
thoroughly investigate the charges against the brethren.
“Are these criticisms dependent upon hearsay evidence,
rumour, reported information, charges of fraud, usually
reliable sources, deception, controversy, disturbance,
questioned reliability, untruths, continual lying,
defiance, contradictory testimony and ingenuity in
attempts to validate his own story? This is the sort of
language of those who sit in judgment upon Dr. Rivera.
“Can it be that the wish is the parent of the thought? Do
these accusers want the stories to be true? These are the
questions calling for definitely stated answers; and that
is what we are seeking.
Examine The Charges!
“These magazines – upon which so many people rely – make
statements concerning Dr. Rivera with no presentation of
supportive evidence. This is so obvious, it is difficult
to assess the writings accusing the man.
“Now, imagine we are sitting in a Court of Law and
serious charges are laid against Alberto Rivera. The
Prosecution does its utmost presenting its charges and
its testimony supporting those charges.
“The Defence Attorney, if he considers that evidence
weak, will move that no case has been established, and
ask the Magistrate to dismiss the charges. Should the
Judge agree, the Accused is released. He is assumed to be
“We want to observe the charges, and consider how well
those making the charges substantiate them. Should they
not be properly supported in the presentations, then we
ask that they be dismissed, and that apologies be made to
the brethren charged. The Bible tells us as Christians:
‘Do violence to no man, neither accuse any falsely. Prove
all things, hold fast that which is good. Against an
elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three
witnesses. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall
every word be established.’
“Did the critics read Alberto’s outline of the Basic
Steps followed by the Roman Hierarchy to discredit and
destroy any who left their ranks? Did they endeavour to
expose Romanism’s errors and evil practices? Did they
insist that Jesuitism is not, by any means Christian?
“In his defence against what he describes as slanders
levelled by friend and foe alike, Rivera calls attention
to…unchristian and anti-biblical charges and accusations
by the head of the Christian Research Center (which
carefully avoids research into the crimes and massacres
of the Roman Catholic institution) through the
instrumentality of articles appearing in…Cornerstone and
Christianity Today …
“An honest, decent person, even a non-Christian, will
recognize the validity and credibility of Dr. Rivera as a
Roman Catholic priest! Why have these critics
consistently attacked Alberto Rivera instead of the
doctrines he espouses and proclaims?
“Mr. Metz says: Alberto says he worked with notable
Jesuit spies such as Kathryn Kuhlman and Jim Jones; yet
nowhere and at no time has Rivera said he had worked with
“The critics tell us that the story of Alberto was banned
by the Christian Reformed Church, Zondervan Publishers
and The Southern Baptist Sunday School Board; yet failed
to admit that many of the congregations associated with
these three bodies continue to sell the Crusaders Comics
“The critics failed to ask the Roman Catholic hierarchy
why they were upset because the articles were true, for
because of them thousands of former Roman Catholics had
found Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, and were coming
out of Rome’s religion.
“Why else should a priest on an Indian Reservation in New
Brunswick order a faith missionary to stay off the
Reserve, if it were not that many young native adults
were reading of Alberto through the comics and were
coming to Christ? This has been true in Western Canada
and in some places in Ontario.
“Why did not the critics ask the representatives of the
Roman Church why these demands they currently make to ban
from entry, etc., unless it is for fear of an
acceleration of many of their people in this exodus from
“Why, specifically, are the mentioned publishers trying
to abolish the ALBERTO series from all of their outlets? [Note: when I attempted to access links for The Force, my internet connection was terminated – author]
Have they been asked? Have they been asked whether the
local Roman Church representatives have not appealed for
this because they are offensive to them? (This was the
reason given by the office of the Toronto R.C.
Archbishop.) We are told by the critics: Our
investigation reveals (Rivera’s) police record, his
investment schemes, his bad cheque-writing, his
contradictory testimony, his fabricated education record,
and his reported family abuse. Yet the author of these
words must have forgotten something! He neglected to
quote from any court records (indeed does not mention any
single Court record location, any dates, any case
numbers, and charges filed, whether or not an arrest was
made, and the final outcome of the levelled charges
“Reported abuse, newspaper clippings, magazine articles,
several article writers (each quoting the others), never
must be understood to be valid, factual evidence credible
of anything at all! Critical mention is made of a college
in Spain for which Rivera (as a Jesuit priest) was
authorized to collect funds, when he was not properly
authorized to do so.
“The articles claim that Rivera was never a priest. No
mention is made of the name of the college, or the source
of the information to support the conclusions. It was
officially agreed from Roman Catholic sources that Dr.
Rivera had indeed been appointed to act in the collection
of funds for one month, and surely he would have not been
so used without his priestly credentials being checked!
‘We are told that a minister of The Church of God of
Prophecy, had experienced embarrassment when Rivera
allegedly had written a cheque on an already closed
“Yet no mention is made of the location of the minister,
of the banks concerned, of the locality of the airline
desk complaining, whether the writers had ever seen a
copy of the cheque, whether the closed account had
previously existed, or to which office of which
Department the said minister had written a complaint.
(True, the accusers give us the name of the minister, but
“Charges are made of a history of legal entanglements,
court actions, accusations of fraud, warrants issued for
arrest, writing of bad cheques; yet no specifies
regarding complaints, vital details, police records,
places, hearings. No results are reported at all.
“Indeed, enquiries have been made by the Canadian
Protestant League of every one of the police
jurisdictions mentioned by the accusers, and consistently
the response has been, we have never heard of this man!
“We hear of alleged inconsistencies, contradictions,
impossibly conflicting dates; yet we have never been
given the sources of such information – letters, tapes,
photo-copies, individuals, interviews, etc. – not even a
“We are told: Alberto’s claim to have been a Jesuit
priest and bishop is denied by Roman Catholic spokesmen.
They state the documents he exhibits as proof of this
priesthood are little more than form letters giving
permission to travel abroad.
“What else would one expect? Surely we would not expect
Roman Catholic officialdom to admit that Alberto Rivera
is telling the truth about them or their Jesuitical
practices! How naive are we expected to be?”
