Fall of the Roman Empire ’caused by gays’

One can count on Catholic historians to never tell the truth about anything.

ROME April 9, 2011
A LEADING Italian academic is facing growing calls to resign after he blamed the collapse of the Roman Empire on homosexuality.

Professor Roberto De Mattei, vice-president of Italy’s Centre for National Research and who is also a devout Catholic, has already faced criticism after claiming that the Japanese tsunami and earthquake disaster was “divine punishment”.

In an interview with Radio Maria, a religious news network, Prof De Mattei, 63, said: “The collapse of the Roman Empire and the arrival of the Barbarians was due to the spread of homosexuality.

“The Roman colony of Carthage was a paradise for homosexuals … the abnormal presence of a few deviants infected many others.”

Prof De Mattei based his comments on the writings of fifth-century Christian author Salviano di Marsiglia. He added: “The invasion of the Barbarians (of Rome] was seen as punishment for this moral transgression. It is well known that effeminate men and homo- sexuals have no place in the Kingdom of God. Homosexuality was not rife among the Barbarians, and this shows that God’s justice comes throughout history, not at the end of time.”

Fellow historians, gay rights groups and politicians expressed outrage and some called on him to quit his post.

Paola Concia, an MP for the opposition Democratic Left, said: “I have tabled an urgent call for the education minister, Maria Stella Gelmini, to step in and intervene.”

One Response to “Fall of the Roman Empire ’caused by gays’”

  1. Andrea B. Says:

    The roman empire fell because it converted to catholicism, tore itself apart in a civil war over catholicism and then allowed bishops and priests to have the power to abuse its people. The church rotted the extended power structures of the roman from the inside.

    A líttle known fact about the roman empire is its power was checked and held in stalemate by one single battle, which changed the entire mindset of the roman leadership permanently. The catholic church likes to bury that one.

    A group of Germans called Cherusci who at the time were basically one step form the stone age defeated the best of the roman army in open battle, not in ambush as romans and the catholic church later claimed. That kicked the romans back behind the Rhine, saving the Germans from the same fate as the Gauls and others at the hands of the romans who enslaved them all and taxed them to death. The battle of Teutoburg Forest, is what checked the roman empire in 9AD. From that point on, every enemy surrounding the roman empire knew it was not invincible.

    It took another 450 years before Germanic tribes would eventually march on Rome. That was the Vandals, Goths, Lombards and others. The Germanic tribes were considerably more civilised and better behaved than the roman legions who had pillaged there lands 400 years earlier.

    On top of that the roman empire had been sending its legions beyond its borders for centuries to burn every crop, destroy every house, sieze the strongest for slavery and kill the rest of people within about 200 kilometers of its frontiers.

    You can only piss people of so much and eventually the Germanic tribes, after being betrayed and stabbed in the back so often by Rome for centuries, conquered it, over and over.

    The roman empire did not actually in reality fall. Its military was overstretched in pointless wars and the actual heart of the empire morphed into a new empire called the catholic church. It split into eastern and western empire or to be more accurate into catholic and orthodox empire. That empire is still there today. Its power today is financial, religious and diplomatic, combined into one.

    As for Carthage. Italians should hold there heads in shame for exterminating an entire city. Then again those same Italians exterminated the Dacians (Romania), wiped out the old celtic languages and cultures in Spain, England, France, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia and Southern Germany, killing and enslaving usually between 10% and 90% of the population. The modern French, Romanians and Spanish speak a variant of Latin and don’t realise they are speaking the language of an invader who oppressed them, enslaved them and butchered there ancestors.

    So many people goto Rome and consider it cultural. How anyone can consider the Colleseum to be a work of culture is beyond my comprehension. At minimum 500,000 people were killed there for entertainment. Some historians put it at over 1,000,000 putting it on a par with Auswitz. How can that be included in a cultural tour of a city?

    Rome was built on the slaughter of Celts, Dacians, Germans, Egyptians, Cathagians and semetic peoples. The presnt day catholic church is the inheritor of that and actually promotes roman ideals in education of children. Adolf Hitler and Heinrich Himmler both used to refer to the roman empire as inspiration and constantly referred in speeches to what they learned in school. As the Roman emperor Trajan once said, genoicide is an option. He killed at minimum 90% of the population of Dacia.

    The catholic church still has to fall and the sooner it does the better.
