"Thou shalt not kill."   (Exodus 20:13) 

"We hear that you forbid torture as contrary to the laws of your land.  But no state law can override canon law, our law.  Therefore I command you at once to submit those men to torture."  Pope Clement V to King Edward II of England[1] 

Some people believe that the Catholic Church has changed.  They claim that torture and murder of "heretics" was a thing of the Dark Ages, not of the 20th century.  Are they correct?  What does recent 20th century history tell us? 


The press of the Spanish dictator, Franco, published the following on 3rd of May 1945, the day of Hitler's death. "Adolph Hitler, son of the Catholic Church, died while defending Christianity."[2]  It praised him as a martyr. 

Hitler stated, "I learned much from the Order of the Jesuits."[3]   

Walter Schellenberg, former chief of Nazi counter-espionage, said: "The S.S. organization had been constituted by Himmler according to the principles of the Jesuit Order."[4] 

Franz von Papen, another powerful Nazi, who set up the Concordat between Germany and the Vatican, said: "The Third Reich is the first world power which not only acknowledges but also puts into practice the high principles of the papacy."[5]  

"As for the Jews, I am just carrying on with the same policy which the Catholic Church has adopted for fifteen hundred years, when it has regarded the Jews as dangerous and pushed them into ghettos, etc."  -- Adolph Hitler[6] 

 Notice that Hitler (in the above quote) rightly places the Catholic policy toward Jews as 1500 (not 1900) years old.  Why?  He knew the Catholic Church began with Constantine in the 4th Century A.D. -- not with Christ in the 1st Century A.D. 

Machine guns, slave labor, starvation, torture and gas chambers all took their toll on Jewish men, women and children.  Whole families and Jewish communities were wiped out.  An estimated six million Jews perished in Hitler's Final Solution


The Catholic priests changed their robes for the uniforms of the dreaded Ustashi killer squads.  They then led the barbaric, brutal raids upon non-Roman Catholic people and practiced torture on a scale that numbs the mind. 

The non-Catholic population of Catholic Croatia (part of Yugoslavia) were given two basic alternatives: conversion or death.  They did not spare women or children.  

In the villages between Vlasenica and Kladanj the Nazi occupational troops discovered children who had been impaled upon stakes by the Ustashi, their little members distorted with pain.[7] 


A CATHOLIC PRIEST NAMED JURIC, “Today it is no longer a sin to kill a child of seven, should such a child be opposed to our movement of the Ustashi.”[9] 

Peter Brzica had attended the Franciscan College at Siroki, Brijeg, in Herzegovina, was a law student, and a member of the Catholic organization of Crusaders.   

In the concentration camp at Jasenovac, on the night of August 29, 1942, orders were issued for executions. Bets were made as to who could liquidate the largest number of inmates.  

Peter Brzica won the competition by cutting the throats of 1,360 prisoners with a specially sharp butcher's knife.  He was elected King of the Cutthroats. A gold watch, a silver service and a roasted suckling pig and wine were his rewards.[10] 


Anton Pavelic, the Roman Catholic leader of Croatia (Hitler's puppet) had the full support of the Croatian Archbishop Aloysius Stepinac.[12]  Pavelic escaped to the Vatican, dressed as a Catholic priest.[13]  He later surfaced in Catholic Argentina. 


Not only Stepinac, but also thousands of other Ustashi and Nazi war criminals escaped to Latin America with the Vatican's help.[14]  On May 5, 1994 PRIME TIME LIVE with Sam Donaldson presented a television documentary titled “The Last Refuge”

It was filmed in both Argentina and Rome.  It documented that the Vatican had run thousands of known war criminals through its "Ratlines" to Latin America.  Included were interviews with former SS officers and former American intelligence agents. 

The following mass murderers were among those who escaped with Vatican help: 

Adolph Eichmann -- Nazi Head of the SS Department for Jewish Affairs. 

Franz Stangl -- Nazi Commandant of the SS Death Camp at Treblinka. 

Joseph Mengele -- Sadistic doctor at SS Death Camp at Auschwitz

Klaus Barbie -- Nazi Gestapo Chief in Lyons, France. 

Stejpan Hefer -- Ustashi mass murderer of Serbs and Jews. 

Ljubo Milos -- Ustashi mass murderer of Serbs and Jews. 

Most were able to melt into the German communities of Latin America (particularly those of Argentina and Brazil).  Why not?  Killing Jews and other heretics had been a well-established Roman Catholic practice for centuries.   

Many “infallible” Popes had confirmed it as an act of faith to the glory of God.  Pope Pius XII personally sent Bishop Hudal to the prisoner of war camps “to minister religiously to Catholics.”  The real purpose was to smuggle out Nazi war criminals. 

“I thank God that He [allowed me] to visit ... prisons and concentration camps and [to help prisoners] escape with false identity papers.... I felt duty bound after 1945 to devote my whole charitable work mainly to former National Socialists [Nazis] and Fascists, especially to so called “war criminals.”  Bishop Hudal[15] 

The Vatican often promotes a religion of hate and murder.  Even when it does not, it refuses to condemn the many Popes who did.  Vatican murders are an enormous violation of the Sixth Commandment, “Thou shalt not kill” (Exodus 20:13).

Which Bible can we trust? Which Bible is the most accurate? Why KJV only? Read our Which Bible series of articles for answers from both Scripture and history (including a Rebuttal of James White's book, The King James Only Controversy).

We also offer a well-documented Vietnam Veteran Story that illustrates the mercy of God.  The Vietnam Veteran Story, found on our Combat Vet page, comes from published accounts of Vietnam Veterans experiences, as well as this Vietnam Veterans experiences, told first hand.  

Concerned about inflation leading to hyperinflation? Some say buy silver and gold coins. Others say it is evil to own silver and gold coins. What does the Bible teach us? Tulip Gems offers an Hyperinflation Survival Guide which provides a Biblical basis for ownership of silver and gold coins as an hedge against the horrors of hyperinflation.  Links to online vendors are also provided. 

Will out of control government spending lead to hyperinflation, and possibly to a new world currency? Will a new world currency lead to the Mark of the Beast (666)? Will the Rapture occur before the Tribulation (Pre-Tribulational Rapture) or will the Rapture occur after the Tribulation (Post-Tribulational Rapture)? For Biblical answers, visit our
Mark of the Beast Explained page.

Will America come under nuclear attack? What does the Bible say? For reliable information on what to do in a nuclear attack, read our

For those who want Biblical guidance about the future, check out our Hyperinflation Survival Guide, Mark of the Beast Explained and Survive Nuclear Attack pages. Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke often about the events leading up to His Second Coming. Where our Good Shepherd leads, we may safely follow.

Who is Jesus Christ? Why KJV only? Why Home School your children? Jesus Christ is Lord and the KJV Bible is the Preserved Word of God in English.  Finally, Scripture gives us compelling reasons to Home School our children. One very important reason is to lead them to Our Passover Lamb. We recommend Christ-centered Home Schooling Curriculum.
