The Return of Kevin AnnettTim King Salem-News.com
Recorded five days ago...
(SACRAMENTO / COUNTY CLARE, Ireland) - Salem-News.com is not just an organization of reporters and photographers, some of our team members are dedicated activists who have heroic tendencies and are highly controversial. One of these razor's edge activists is Kevin Annett. He exposed the Genocide of Native American children in Canada; along with ITCCS.org (International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State), and Kevin has forced great change inside of the Catholic Church, he was recently nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Kevin's name places fear in the hearts of child raping priests - men so well protected by the church that claims to represent God, such a shame it all is.
Kevin is another great example of how the subjects we follow tend to become explosive, mainstream news. Kevin is a seriously dedicated activist for children and his critics in my view, are all advocates for the worst things in the world, they represent either directly or indirectly, the beasts who prey upon the weak and innocent, we have no use for them, and are particularly offended by the fact that it is the 'Church' that we have to stand and unify against, a big dose of irony is what it is... Kevin is a minister, he was excommunicated over his child Genocide allegations, then after the remains of the suspected victims were unearthed, Kevin's excommunication was reversed. It says a great deal about him.
So please watch this short video recorded during the final days of Kevin's recent European tour, where ITCCS offices are going up in many cities. People are sick of the Church abusing children, it is a grating subject for many of us, but Kevin Annett is doing something about it, and we are moved, very moved by his actions, we all owe him a round of applause and our intense gratitude for his years of service and passion for human rights and fairness.
