“This attack is not against the Christian religion or the faithful around the world but against the corrupt Roman Apostolic Church”.
This was the message from a group of hackers who took down several Vatican websites on Wednesday.
The group “Anonymous: said it was targeting the “corrupt” Catholic Church, a day after a high-profile bust of the group’s alleged leaders.
“Anonymous decided today to besiege your site in response to the doctrine, to the liturgies, to the absurd and anachronistic concepts that your for-profit organization spreads around the world,” the hackers said in a statement.
“This attack is not against the Christian religion or the faithful around the world but against the corrupt Roman Apostolic Church,” said the statement, posted on the Italian-language version of the Anonymous website.
Aside from taking down http://www.vatican.va, the hacking group also claimed responsibility for attacking several Vatican-related sites including that of its newspaper.
Five alleged computer hackers in Britain, Ireland and the United States were charged on Tuesday in high-profile cyberattacks after a leader of the group became a FBI informant.
In their statement, Anonymous went on to accused the Catholic Church of several historical wrongdoings including killing opponents, burning texts and harbouring Nazi war criminals.
The group also blasted the institution for “allowing its representatives to harass children.”
I do not promote hacking, but it is good that many people tell the truth to the Pope and all Roman Catholics.
Let us hope that the exposure of wickedness and corruption in the Vatican will eventually have an impact on hundreds of millions of deceived people.
God does not want anyone to perish, but that all men shall come to the full knowledge of what the begotten Son has done for mankind.
Pick up a Bible and read. Pray that Jesus will tell the Father to send the Holy Spirit on you, to bring light to the good news. If you knock, the door shall be opened for you. Amen.
