Children Of Incest - The Early Popes.

Al Salamu 'Alaykum.
Some quotes showing the profanity and perversion of the Popes from the year 189 to 816.

VICTOR 189-198 Friends with the lewdest concubine in Emperor Commodus' palace, which he frequently visited. [From: How Christianity Grew Out of Paganism, by Joseph McCabe]

CALLISTUS 217-222 Had embezzled bank money and was jailed prior to his stint as Bishop of Rome (Pope). [From: How Christianity Grew Out of Paganism, by Joseph McCabe]

MARCELLINUS 296-304 Though still regarded as both Saint and Martyr in official Catholic literature, Catholic historian Duchesne proves that he died in bed (thus he was not a martyr). And the official Papal Chronicle admits that he abjured (renounced) the Christian faith. [From: A Rationalist Encyclopaedia by historian and former Franciscan monk Joseph McCabe]

DAMASUS I 366-383 Renounced his wife and kids when he became Pope, after seizing the throne through the use of violence. He also encouraged the budding fraudulent relic industry. When pope, he introduced the first heresy bull and yet consorted with the "principle females of the city" [Sex Lives of the Popes, Nigel Cawthorne].
Damasus ("the tickler of matrons' ears," as some of his priests called him)
-- The Story of Religious Controversy, by Joseph McCabe
Tried and found guilty of adultery but on the intervention of the Emperor Gratian, was acquitted. Canonised after his death and now regarded a Saint. (Hilarious)

SIXTUS III 432-440 Tried for seducing a nun. In the absence of witnesses, he could not be convicted. He nevertheless hinted at an admission of his guilt by alluding to Jesus' statement on adultery, where no one should cast stones unless one is free of sin.

LEO I 440-461 "A warped, sadistic torturer" "who brutally tortured" [Sex Lives of the Popes, Nigel Cawthorne] the followers of Manichaeanism which had been declared a heresy. He had at least two children on becoming Pope. He was the first Pope to claim the right to put anyone who disagreed with him to death.
This Church Father, Saint and Pope,
Leo I was the first in a long line of popes to arrange for punishment of heresy and all beliefs other than Christianity. Having no legal authority of his own, Leo I induced the Emperor's edict to punish and pursue the Pelagianists, the Priscillianists in Spain, and the Manichaeans in the whole Roman empire, the first organized persecution of Christians by Christians. The infamous edict was even written in the papal secretariate.
At the same time bishop Optatus of Mileve called for capital punishment of the Donatists, another Christian sect of the time.
[Link, referencing Abermals krähte der Hahn by Karlheinz Deschner]

GREGORY I 590-604 He was the first pope to enter the relic industry. He convinced the nobleman Dynamius that the cross he sold him (for lots of money) contained the 'filings' from chains worn by the blessed Apostle, St Peter himself, and that it would therefore free Dynamius forever from sins. After this first marketing success, the Pope embarked on duping more gullible Christians by selling them the "keys of St Peter 'wherein are found the precious filings and which by the same token also remit sins'" [Holy Horrors by James A. Haught].
...he [Gregory] laid the foundation of the temporal power and wealth of the Papacy through this fortunate belief of his that the end of the world was really approaching at last. A man with possessions, the Bible said, had as much hope of getting through the eye of a needle as of getting through the narrow gate of heaven. So the men who had large estates in Italy passed them over to the Papacy and looked for the heavens to open.
Pope Gregory ... was the greatest slave-owner in the world in the sixth century. Announcing that the end of the world was to come in 600 A.D., he kindly allowed land-owners and slave-owners to hand over their property to the Church -- God would not damn the Church for its wealth -- and enter monasteries. The Papacy soon had an income from land, of about two million dollars a year; a stupendous sum in those impoverished days. Enormous numbers of slaves tilled the eighteen hundred square miles of the Church's property. Gregory freed them occasionally: when they got money. He never condemned slavery. He would not allow any slave to become a cleric, and he expressly reaffirmed (Epp. vii, 1) that no slave could marry a free Christian.
-- The Story Of Religious Controversy, by Joseph McCabe, historian and former Franciscan monk
Pope Gregory the Great also opposed secular learning and had Rome's last collections of old Roman works destroyed:
He heard that Bishop Desiderius, of Vienne in Gaul, was conducting a small school, and he wrote him a letter (Migne edition, bk. XI, ep. liv) of which I may translate a passage:
After that we heard a thing that cannot be repeated without a feeling of shame -- namely, that you are teaching grammar to some. This troubled us so greatly, and filled us with so deep a disdain, that we fell from our former praise of you to mourning and sorrow, because the praise of Jove must never be heard from the mouth that praises Christ. Think how grave and horrible it is for a bishop to repeat what even a religious layman should not. And, though our beloved son the presbyter Candidus denied the affair, at our pressing inquiry, and tried to excuse you, ye have not lost the suspicion, because it is so execrable for this to be said of a priest that it must be strictly investigated.
Desiderius is, in fine, to give up "studying trifles and secular letters" if he is to return to the Pope's favor. ...The bishop's fault was, pure and simple, that he was teaching "profane letters."
After Gregory's death there was a tradition in the Church, reproduced in the "Polycraticus" (ii, 26) of John Salisbury, that the Pope had burned the old Roman libraries which still remained on the Capitoline and the Palatine Hills. I have little doubt that the tradition is correct.
... The Julian library at Rome (which, with others, the Pope is said to have burned) contained one hundred and twenty thousand books.
-- The Story Of Religious Controversy, by Joseph McCabe, historian and former Franciscan monk

HONORIUS I 625-638 The first pope to be branded a heretic - a shame as he was one of the better Popes. "He was condemned as a heretic by the 6th general council", according to the Catholic Encyclopedia. He shared the views of the heretical Monophysites who denied the Incarnation of Christ and believed only in the divine nature of Christ.

LEO III 795-816 Created a spiritual cesspool. Following this Pope's rule, the Council of Aix-la-Chapelle of 836 CE stated that many monasteries had become the haunts of homosexuals and that many convents had become little more than brothels where unwanted babies were killed and buried. The church introduced laws banning priests' mothers, aunts or sisters from living in the houses of priests, since even relatives of the clergy were unsafe as incest was so rife.
