Could the Roman Catholic Church's sex abuse crisis be tied to
embedded Satanic and occultic imagery in its artwork – some of it
hundreds of years old?
That is the seemingly incredible thesis of a new documentary, "Rape
of the Soul," made not by anti-Catholic bigots, but by devout
followers of the Church.
"Rape of the Soul" is in theatrical release in major cities,
including New York and Los Angeles.
The documentary explores the prevalent use of satanic, sexual,
occult and anti-Catholic images in historical and contemporary
religious artwork. The film also discusses the mysterious acceptance
of the artwork at the highest and most trusted levels of the
"Rape of the Soul" is rated R because of the disturbing content
involving demonic, violent and sexual imagery.
The film, which is being released by Silver Sword International,
contends a major cause of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church could
be due to prolonged exposure to sexual and satanic images being
incorporated into the religious art.
Experts are featured in the film to offer detailed accounts of the
subconscious programming effects of the sex and occult images on the
human brain and how it promotes sex, Satanism and the occult.
Religious education materials, songbooks, children's story books,
devotionals and the Sunday Missals all have been found to contain
The 140-minute film shows a compilation of the events,
investigations, discovery and exposure of implanted imagery in
religious art. Then it shows the devastating affects of the artwork
that is primarily aimed at children and the clergy.
Five experts speak on the different aspects of the artwork,
including Michael A. Calace, an Italian director, actor, writer and
producer who is also a devout Roman Catholic.
Calace embarked on a mission of "Merging Media with Morality" to
create family-oriented films of true life drama for Silver Sword
International, his production company. While doing so, he uncovered
a series of religious scandals. Calace puts to use his experiences
of more than 20 years of expertise to discover a huge amount of
offensive images of carefully embedded sexual and occult horror. He
explains the techniques used to embed the images, and he presents
discoveries from his investigations.
"The deeper I dug, the more I discovered, not just in regard to
contemporary art, but works dating back more than 500 years, from
some well-known and respected artists. Sex and horror is the fuel
that promotes the scandalous behavior in the Church. This is the
answer why, and Church leaders don't have to look very far, because
the problem is coming from within the Church itself," said Calace of
Other experts include Wilson Bryan Key, an American recognized
internationally for over 30 years of embedded-imagery expertise. He
also was a professor at the University of Western Ontario.
Stanley Monteith, another expert in the film, is an author and radio
talk show host who has spent more than 30 years researching the
causes of America's moral decline. Monteith also has extensively
studied the Vatican's history and politics and has interviewed

Judith Reisman, the final expert featured in "Rape of the Soul," is
a world-renowned author, who specializes in child psychology and the
harmful effects of pornography. She is also president of The
Institute for Media Education and author of a U.S. Department of
Justice study on juveniles.
"These images, unrecognized by the untrained eye, can be a ticking
time-bomb to an individual who is unaware of their presence,
especially someone who is already predisposed to deviant sexual
behavior," said Reisman.
"Artists from DaVinci to Botticelli have embedded subliminal images
into their art for centuries," said Calace. "In this case we found
penises on crucifixes, anarchy symbols, swastikas, demonic faces and
in modern works even the word 'sex' encrypted into the images. The
works in question include modern artists' work currently on the
covers of missalettes and hymnals that at this very moment sit in
the pews of churches throughout the U.S. and on children's religious
Calace said, "'Rape of the Soul' was created to heal the many that
have suffered from these uninvited violations."
