Rats! to Ratzinger!

Perhaps it was not just stupidity. 

Some people are in the business of creating hatred, and for thatgoal, these "occultists" work in both sectors, Islamic and Christian, as HPB showed in her writings in the most clear way.

There was, for instance, a Christian Pope, Sixtus V, who later reincarnated as a high "Islamic Mystic", to work for hatred in "both ends". 

Regards,   Carlos.
