Kevin Annett: Man Whose Work Prompted the End of Pope Ratzinger.
October 2009: Italian politicians, including the provincial government of Liguria in Genoa, agree to
sponsor an inquiry into Genocide in Canada after an FRD delegation including Kevin Annett presents
them with the evidence and wins their endorsement. On October 11, Kevin
conducts a public exorcism outside the Vatican. The next day, a tornado strikes the center of Rome.
That week, European media first begin to report the personal complicity of Pope Benedict, Joseph Ratzinger, in concealing crimes against children in the Catholic Church.
The documentary, Unrepentant, documents Canada’s dirty secret – the planned genocide of aboriginal people in church-run Indian Residential Schools – and a clergyman’s efforts to document and make public these crimes.
First-hand testimonies from residential school survivors are interwoven with Kevin Annett’s own story of how he faced firing, de-frocking, and the loss of his family, reputation and livelihood as a result of his efforts to help survivors and bring out the truth of the residential schools.
This saga continues, as Annett continues a David and Goliath struggle to hold the government and churches of Canada accountable for crimes against humanity, and the continued theft of aboriginal land.
Unrepentant took nineteen months to film, primarily in British Columbia and Alberta, and is based on Kevin Annett’s book Hidden from History: The Canadian Holocaust. The entire film was a self-funded, grassroots effort, which is reflected in its earthy and human quality.
August, 2010: The film Unrepentant is broadcast in four languages to over ten million viewers on
Swiss and German television. Kevin Annett’s new book Unrepentant: Disrobing the Emperor is
published in London. But on August 9, Kevin’s long standing radio program Hidden from History is
cancelled without cause or explanation by Vancouver Co-op radio, which is government funded.
Crimen has been in effect as a governing policy over all Roman clergy since 1929, and over all
Catholics since 1962. It is a papal decree that was only revealed in August, 2003 by the London based
Observer newspaper, obtained through a contact in the Vatican Library archives where it was stored.
Crimen imposes a papal oath of “perpetual secrecy” on all victims of priestly rape and on the rapist,
on pain of excommunication. It also prohibits the reporting of the crime to the police and prevents
the rapist from being tried in a civil court.
Thanks to Crimen, all Catholic clergy – the main perpetrators in this crime – are automatically and institutionally protected for any act of rape or violence towards a child. Crimen embodies an
enormous, global criminal conspiracy institutionally protected for any act of rape or violence towards a child.
Institutionalized criminality is rarely if ever considered a crime by its participants, who see their
system as benign and necessary, and rationalize their involvement in it with a special language
designed to legitimate and normalize that system. Missionaries “save” the savages, who are
“civilized” or “assimilated” rather than exterminated. Death camps inmates are “relocated” or
“processed”; enemy soldiers are “pacified”, not killed; and victims of genocide are “abused”
Each conquering nation applied this imperative differently. To the early Catholic missionaries with
their eyes on quick profit, “converting the savage” meant “Whatever is required for the Faith and the
Fur Trade”, to quote Jesuit leader Jean de Brebeuf. To the later Dominion of Canada with its halo of
Anglo-Saxon benevolence, the Indians were to be “Canadianized and Christianized”, to quote the
declared aim of the government-created United Church of Canada in 1925.
“This use of the meaningless word ‘abuse’ was deliberate, and part of the government’s legal strategy to
contain the inevitable litigation from the victims within tort law rather than criminal law. As mere
‘abuse’, anything that had happened to children was defined as tort ‘damage’ rather than a criminal act;
rape, murder and torture could then be ‘compensated’ like one would do over damages to a broken
window. This deception was all designed to protect the churches and government from any legal
consequence for their crime. Control the language and you control the outcome.”
In reality, the word “reconciliation” is derived from the Latin term “reconcilia” which means to re-
establish the domination and control of a ruler over his subjects. It is a term implying resignation and
defeat before the inevitability of a conquest, as in, “be reconciled to your fate”.
The law, entitled “The Crimes against Humanity Act” actually prohibits the prosecution of
any crime of genocide that happened within Canada if it occurred before the year 2000, thereby
barring any prosecution for genocide in the residential schools, which closed in 1996. By such self-
serving actions, Canada has consistently protected itself from being prosecuted for actions within the
country that were clearly genocidal, like transferring children to another group, preventing births,
causing deaths and the long term destruction of a group, and other acts that were planned and
occurred throughout the entire Indian residential school system.
