Today Sexual Crimes in German and Irish Catholic Churches make it new, but the problem of Propaganda against Catholic Church, Press and Networks is an old problem in Europa (-1800) that can be understood rather easily starting from French example.
First of all one has to underline the fact that Propaganda was invented by Catholic Church in modern History, including the use of lie without which there is no Propaganda.
Obvioulsly Catholic Roman Church is often judged by Journalists who have no idea of its History or Theology and are not interested in them. Do not ask a French Journalist to understand the sentence of Karl Marx explaining that "Christian people became Jewish, that is what emancipated Jewish people." Journalists are just making the Propaganda for the Party they are belonging to, just as most of Catholic Roman clerks before.
Biggest lie in France is probably the common idea, teached at School, that French Revolution was between Atheist People and Christian People, though one can read Voltaire, supposed to be one of the Prophets of the French Revolution, and understand that he is not so far away from Blaise Pascal, supposed to be the Prophet of old Aristocratic Christian Class (French Bankers putted B. Pascal on the bills in XXth century, probably to remain that Money is like Faith: always a Bet; and in fact Rich young man of the Gospel does prefer Faith and Law rather than Charity that Jesus makes an Urgency for Salvation).
Better to understand European History, and even French one, is to read Shakespeare's History whose vision is therefore nothing less than prophetic. Against the Education based in Europa on Propaganda, one could imagine an Education based on Shakespeare's History: great progress for Children and Truth but great Risk for Capitalism and its Manoeuvring in the Dark.
That French Journalists are mistaking Catholic Church and Clerks today is not surprising. Catholic Roman Church that what useful for the Power and the State until the End of XIXth Century is almost useless now. Catholic Church helped for instance Napoleon IIIrd to be elected (1850), to convince the Peasantry to vote for him, although Napoleon IIIrd was working for industrial Cartels; there is no peasantry anymore. Catholic Church was useful more recently -in 1914-18- to convince people that... War is a good thing! Especially in some areas like French Brittany that came out Middle Age recently and that gave French Army its best soldiers, motherfuckers who were sended in first line, convinced that God was happy that they make war for the Property, the Family and the Golden Calf! (Best XXth French Writter L.-F. Celine is coming from this Country and this insane religion of little farmers that makes atheism more logic.)
Catholic Church lost every kind of influence definitely in Europa during last half of XXth Century; its sole use is today to make the new Liberal Religion more new-fashioned. Today the use of Christian propaganda would be more useful in... Africa, where it could be used by new Chinese companies to make African Peasantry more manageable.
In Saint John's Revelation Christian Church is compared to a Whore having incestuous relationship with Kings and Nations (see 'Hamlet' or Dante Alighieri), a comparison which is already in Jewish Prophecies concerning Israel. It is said too that this Whore will be hated by the Nations behind Time, themselves rejecting their Mother-in-law (Rev. Chap. XVII).
There is no serious translator in Catholic tradition who is trying to split this Whore Portrait from Roma. Only some (like French Bossuet) who are explaining that Apostle John is viewing here the Roma of Ancient Tyrants and orgies, based on selfish Religion of Family and Ancestors. Problem of this explanation is that:
-it makes saint John's Prophecy useless, first of all, though the link between Prophecy and History that is underlined by great Francis Bacon ('Revelation is History');
-and twice it puts on one side the fact that the good Church is compared to a Wife (See Poem of Salomon) and the bad Church to a Prostitute along Holly Scriptures, due to Eva's fault that Christian people think it can be abolished. Apostle Paulus (who was taken by Francis Bacon as a good example of clear Theology) does explain that the Union of the Christ and his Church as a marriage is 'a great Mystery', i.e. a mystery that Paulus does not understand but is one key of the Revelation.
