where the Pope has said that married couples who suffer from AIDS and use condoms are going to hell.
UFO conspiracist, tax resister, and self-styled "militiaman", Bill Cooper left a mixed legacy. While those who were inclined to accept his theories on John F. Kennedy's assassination and a government cover-up of an alien invasion found him engaging and personable, those who questioned his logic or asked for proof found 'his demeanor and attitude was "unfriendly" at best.'
Best known as the author of Behold a Pale Horse (1991), this book detailed his claims of an extraterrestrial invasion and government cover-up, as well as the complete text of the notorious antisemitic hoax, the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, with Cooper claiming that "any reference to 'Jews' should be replaced with the word 'Illuminati."
Cooper made many claims about his life. He claimed to have been a member of the Order of DeMolay, an appendant body of Freemasonry, claiming this gave him insight into the hidden clues of masonic control.
A second-class petty officer, he had received an Honourable Discharge from the United States Navy on 11 December, 1975. But he also made unverified claims to have worked for Naval Intelligence, using this as justification for many of his claims and accusations regarding what he claimed was a government cover-up regarding UFOs.
He first posted messages in ParaNet early in 1988 but when asked for evidence, became so abusive that he was eventually barred. "He was known for plagiarizing the 'research' of other UFOlogists and claiming that he first saw all this stuff in Naval Intelligence documents in the early '70sóincluding things the UFOlogists made up as jokes."
Over time, his claims became more outlandish. He claimed that JFK was assassinated by his driver, citing a special 'washed' version of the Zapruder film that seemed to show Kennedy's driver, William Greer, turning to shoot the Presidentóa theory since disproven. He later claimed that the aliens in an American television series, "Alien Nation", were real aliens.
There are many local priests who make up their own beliefs. I even know one priest who "blessed" a couple that was living together but they didn't want to get married because it wasn't convenient.
These priests make things up as they go and don't follow the Church guidelines. It is almost impossible to control every single priest in every parish and some of their teachings to their congregations.
Unfortunately Lady C the Free Masons arenít the best way to discredit Bill. He said THEY shot Kennedy; that the plaza in which it happened was a Masonic temple. He has a video of the plaza etc.
Itís not that I believe or disbelieve Bill, itís just the Free Masons have a vested interest in discrediting him.
