John Paul II the Suppressor
His favorite slogan was "Be Not Afraid"! This was the title of the WYD World Youth Day compilation book in 2002. The fact is, theologians who voiced their opinions contrary to his self-infallible writings -- were suppresed and silenced and kicked out of Catholic universities and colleges and had no right to preach in public. John Paul II apologized to Galileo but he exiled many theologians and created more Galileos in the 20th century.
John Paul II fired the American Fr. Thomas Doyle, O.P. from his post at the Vatican. Fr. Doyle was the foremost prophet of priest sexual abuse. If only the Pope listened to Fr. Doyle as early as 1983, thousands of little boys and girls would have been spared of the sodomy of his papacy.
John Paul II has no place in America, he does not deserve to be called a "saint" in American lips and in American soil where we have "liberty of speech and the pursuit of happiness". The 12,000 American little boys (and girls) who were victims of his JPIIPP John Paul II Pedophile Priests army were had no voice and no happiness as they burned as holocaust inside his Papal Altar of Sodomy. They were the worst victims of his papal suppression. http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2006/08/john-paul-ii-pedophile-priests-jpiipp.html
The following are some of the good theologians that John Paul II suppressed:
1. Jose Maria Castillo, S.J.
2. Juan Jose Tamayo
3. Leonardo Boff (a former Franciscan priest)
These are some of their works and their websites.http://www.freetranslation.com/ will give you a free translation from Spanish into English

In the Chair of Galileo Galilei
The image of God that comes out of that theology is understandable to all: God is more interested in justice than in sacred rites, God is more in tune with the cry of the oppressed than with the praises of the pious. Actions are what counts, not homilies.
Finally, for all that the authorities consider themselves, "Most Reverend Eminencies," they still have the limitations of the human condition. French theologian Yves Congar, who defended me in the magazine La Croix (Sept. 8,1984), said it well: "The charisma of the Vatican's central power is not to ever doubt. Not to have a single doubt is, at once, magnificent and terrible. It is magnificent because the charisma of the center consists precisely in permanently being firm when all around, everything is vacillating. And it is terrible because in Rome there are men with all types of limitations, in their intelligence, in their vocabulary, in their references and in the perspective of their visions. And all of them came down against Boff."
But I refuse to see them with the eyes of the Great Inquisitor. In their own way, they also pretend to serve truth. Definitively, it is truth, and not they, who has the last word. Leonardo Boff
