The Sydney Morning Herald reported on the 17/8/2005 - Lawyers for Pope Benedict XVI asked the
then US President - George W. Bush to declare the pontiff immune from liability in a lawsuit that accuses
him of conspiring to cover up the molestation of three boys by a seminarian in Texas, court records show.
The Vatican‘s embassy in Washington sent a diplomatic memo to the State Department on the 20th May
2005 requesting the US government grant the pope immunity because he is a head of state, according to a
motion submitted by the pope‘s lawyers on the 26th May 2005 in US District Court for the Southern
Division of Texas in Houston. Joseph Ratzinger is named as a defendant in the civil lawsuit. Now
Benedict XVI, he‘s accused of conspiring with the Archdiocese of Galveston, Houston to cover-up the
abuse during the mid-1990s. The suit is seeking unspecified monetary damages. - In a Newsday article
from 2005 detailed the names of the ―Peado‘s-by-proxy‖, among who were Neil Bush - the younger
brother of the then president of the USA George W. Bush - who served on Pope Ratzinger‘s ecumenical
foundation. Also in 2005, the Pope asked the President to ―declare the pontiff immune from liability in a
lawsuit that accused him of conspiring to cover up the molestation of three boys‖ by a seminarian in
Now this says it all, if ―Gods‖ own representative on earth has to go grovelling to the most powerful
political leader in the world, seeking Nolle prosequi in regards to a paedophilic legal court case, - then it
surely just goes to show you how deep and ingrained the church and many of our world leaders truly are in
regards to child abuse cases. - In the same article in Newsday on the 21/4/2005 by Knut Royce and Tom
Brune wrote; Neil Bush, the president‘s controversial younger brother, six years ago joined the then
cardinal who went on to became Pope Benedict XVI as a founding board member of a little known Swiss
ecumenical foundation. 
The charter members of the board were all well-known international religious
figures, except for Neil Bush and his close friend and business partner, Jamal Daniel, whose family has
extensive holdings in the United States and Switzerland public records show. 
The Foundation for Interreligious and Intercultural Research and Dialogue was founded in Geneva,
Switzerland, in 1999 to promote [Masonic] ecumenical understanding and publish original religious texts,
said a foundation official. Besides then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, founding board members included
Rene-Samuel Sirat, the former chief rabbi of France. Jordan‘s Prince Hassan, a Muslim dedicated to
religious dialogue, the late Prince Sadruddin Aga Kha, and Olivier Fatio, director of the Institute of the

History of the Reformation; and foundation president Metropolitan Damaskinos;- a Greek Orthodox
In an over the telephone conversation with Knut Royce, Gary Vachicouras, a theologian and
foundation official in Geneva, would not explain why Bush, who has no clear public connection to
religious causes, was on the first board in the first place?
For those who don‘t really know much about Neil Bush here‘s a little run down: In a highly publicised
divorce, Bush revealed he and Daniel were co-chairs of Texas-based Crest Investment Co., which paid him
$60,000 a year for consulting, and a Crest Investment official used Bush‘s name as a reference in cutting
an exclusive deal with Texas officials on construction of a liquid natural gas storage facility that will
guarantee Crest payments of at least $2 million a year, according to the Los Angeles Times. The
foundation, based at the Orthodox Centre of the Ecumenical Patriarchate in Geneva, is listed by Dun &
Bradstreet business credit reports as a management trust for purposes other than education, religion,
charity or research; 
Olivier Fatio, - who left the board some years ago, said the foundation never had any
money; - Vachicouras declined to discuss finances. - Neil Bush was a member of the board of directors of
Denver-based Silverado Savings and Loan during the 1980‘s larger Savings and Loan crisis. As his father
was Vice President of the United States, his role in Silverado‘s failure was a focal point of publicity.
According to a piece in Salon, Silverado‘s collapse cost taxpayers $1.3 billion. The US Office of Thrift
Supervision investigated Silverado‘s failure and determined that Bush had engaged in numerous breaches
of his fiduciary duties involving multiple conflicts of interest.
In 1999, Bush co-founded Ignite!-Learning, [Note the Masonic/Illuminati twang to the name.] an
educational software corporation. Bush has said he started Austin-based Ignite!-Learning because of his
learning difficulties in middle school and those of his son, Pierce. The software uses multiple intelligence
methods to provide varying types of content to appeal to multiple learning styles. To fund Ignite!-
Learning, Bush raised $23 million from U.S. investors, including his parents, as well as [Masonic]
businessmen from Taiwan, Japan, Kuwait, the British Virgin Islands and the United Arab Emirates,
according to documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Documented investors
include Russian billionaire expatriate Boris Berezovsky, Berezovsky‘s partner Badri Patarkatsishvili,
Kuwaiti company head Mohammed Al Saddah, and Chinese computer executive Winston Wong. In 2002,
Neil Bush commended his brother, George, for his efforts on education as President, but he questioned the
emphasis on constant testing to keep federal aid coming to public schools: ―I share the concerns of many
that if our system is driven around assessments, pencil-and-paper tests that test a kid's ability to memorise
stuff, I would say that reliance threatens to institutionalise bad teaching practices.‖ 
As of October 2006, over 13 U.S. school districts [out of over 14,000 school districts nation-wide.]
have used federal funds made available through the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 in order to buy
Ignite!-Learning products at $3,800 apiece, which amounts to a meagre $49,400 in sales. A December
2003 Style section article in the Washington Post reported that Bush‘s salary from Ignite!-Learning was
$180,000 per year, almost four times as much as the sales revenue, so no wonder such companies can
never survive or make a profit, and which goes to show you how much he really cared for that programme
because of his own learning difficulties and those of his son! - Neil Bush has also been seen in
Berezovsky‘s box by my mates at the Arsenal‘s Emirates stadium to watch a game. - In Asia, Bush
accompanied Sun Myung Moon, the founder of the Unification Church, aka the brainwashing ―Moonies‖
cult, on his world peace tour. In 2009 Bush congratulated Moon on the publication of his autobiography at
a Unification Church sponsored event. He was quoted as saying: ―Rev. Moon is presenting a very simple
concept. We are all children of God.‖
U.S. Government Says Pope Immune from Lawsuit; by Nicole Winfield, Rome. [The Associated Press,
carried in Fort Worth Star-Telegram.] On the 20th Sept 2005 The U.S. Justice Department has told a
Texas court that a lawsuit accusing Pope Benedict XVI of conspiring to cover up the sexual molestation of
three boys by a seminarian should be dismissed; because the pontiff enjoys immunity as head of state of
the Holy See. Assistant U.S. Attorney General Peter Keisler said in the filing that allowing the lawsuit to
proceed would be; incompatible with the United States foreign policy interests. There was no immediate
ruling from Judge Lee Rosenthal of the U.S. District Court for the southern district of Texas in Houston.
However, U.S. courts have been bound by such suggestion of immunity motions submitted by the
government, Keisler‘s filing says. 
A 1994 lawsuit against Pope John Paul II, also filed in Texas, was dismissed after the U.S. government
filed a similar motion. 
In the London Evening Standard on the 30th Sept 2006 it stated; ―The Pope
played a leading role in a systematic cover-up of child sex abuse by Roman Catholic priests, according to
a shocking documentary to be screened by the BBC tonight -The Panorama special, Sex Crimes and The
- 109 -
Vatican‖. It went on to report that in 2001, while he was a cardinal, he issued a secret Vatican edict to
Catholic bishops all over the world, instructing them to put the Church‘s interests ahead of child safety.
The document recommended that rather than reporting sexual abuse to the relevant legal authorities,
bishops should encourage the victim, witnesses and perpetrator not to talk about it. And, to keep victims
quiet, it threatened that if they repeat the allegations they would be excommunicated. – Then on the BBC
on 3rd March 2010 Cardinal Angelo Sodano, dean of the College of Cardinals said; ―the Roman Catholic
faithful will not be swayed by petty gossip about child sex-abuse allegations‖, and made the remark in an
unusual message of support to Pope Benedict XVI during Easter Mass. The Pope did not mention the
scandal directly in his Easter address. He said humanity was suffering from a profound crisis and needed
spiritual and moral conversion.
