Big ‘N’ Mighty Nose – Grey Carter – 28/7/17

Bloody Croatian Bishop Stepinac is to become a saint canonized by Vatican.

Honoring criminals is to murder his victims for a second time.

Croatian Archbishop Stepinac used Nazi Germany to achieve an ethnically clean (without Serbs) Croatia. As the “Supreme Military Apostolic Vicar of the Ustashi Army”, Stepinac participated in genocide of Serbs, Jews and Roma population, and also actively participated in military and political functions, cooperating with Fascist, Nazi and Ustashi Commanders.


Stepinac was the supreme military vicar in the Independent State of Croatia (NDH) army, and therefore he is very much responsible for the genocide. He is to be blamed for the monstrous crimes of Roman Catholic priests, members of Ustasha and Domobran units. He was one of the initiators of the forcible conversion of the Orthodox Serbs to Roman Catholicism. In his letter to Pope Pius XII, in the middle of the 1943 he mentioned that, about 244,000 Serbs were forcibly converted to Roman Catholicism. These are some of his ‘merits’, says Dr. Veljko Djuric Mišina, historian and director of the Museum of Genocide Victims in Belgrade.


So, he will be the latest Roman Catholic saint who will be celebrated by millions of people. February 10th is a big day for Roman Catholic Croats in Balkans; because that is the day “saint” Aloysius Stepinac is celebrated and honored.


This man was a torturer and collaborator in genocide against Orthodox Christians, Gypsies and Jews. In the era of heresy of ecumenism (false, dishonest, by Vatican and NWO promoted unity) it is probably not a big deal to convince people that torturer Aloysius and his victim martyr saint Vukasin Klepacki are given the same rank (Stepinac in Roman Catholic Croatian, and Vukasin in Serbian Orthodox church); and that both should be celebrated together?!

Alen Budaj, an associate of the Jerusalem-based Simon Wiesenthal Center says, “Stepinac never repented his Roman Catholic ‘baptized souls’ for burning Jewish people and Serbian churches, plundering around, raping and killing the ”infidel heretics” the same way crusader armies once did all across the Holy Land.”

Budaj added that Stepinac knew about it all, but bestowed blessings on the NDH and served them, even after its collapse. He facilitated hiding Ustasha criminals, stolen Serbian and Jewish gold and Ustasha state archive in the Zagreb Kaptol.

“To me, as a free man, Stepinac will never be a saint, as I am not bound by decisions of the Pope, nor have I lost my mind to believe in that fraudulent alchemy of miraculous transformation of a criminal to a saint.”


Saint Vukasin Klepacki,  was tortured and murdered by roman catholic fanatics. Vukasin Mandrapa was a farmer and merchant, born in Klepci (during the Ottoman Empire, modern-day Bosnia and Herzegovina). He and his family lived in Sarajevo and then returned to Klepci, but were arrested and sent to the Independent State of Croatia Jasenovac death camp, for both their Serbian ethnicity and for refusing to convert from Serbian Orthodox Christianity to Roman Catholicism. At least two of his nephews were said to have died in Jasenovac before his death.

The pillars ‘laid their life’ for the monstrous Independent State of Croatia – Stepinac dominates.

In January 1943, Mandrapa was singled out by the Croatian Ustaše Josep “Zhila” Friganović, who had noticed his stoic behavior during the forced labor days and the slaughter of prisoners at night. Then, he was mutilated by Friganović, after his repeated refusals to praise Ustase leader Ante Pavelic.[2] For as long as Mandrapa could speak, he told Friganović “radi ti, dijete, svoj posao.” (“Do your job, child” in Serbian): as a result his ears, tongue and nose were cut, then his eyes and heart were gouged out, and his throat was slit. Friganović is said to have been unable to kill more people that night, fallen into alcoholism, and years later later he confessed this to a doctor named Nedelko Nedo Zets, who recorded the confession.

Stepinac was no torturer. He was a saint who sinned by turning a blind eye to torture.

He was a Papal terrorist.

Ah yes, guilt by association. A great tool for filling the Gulag.
Please consider Christian forgiveness. That does not mean we forget such crimes, but we need to avoid hatred.

It is not hatred to deny that Stepinac was a saint. He was a moral coward who connived at Ustashi cruelties. He was treated well by the communists who let him go to Rome. The idea that he was a martyr is absurd.

“It is not hatred to deny that Stepinac was a saint.”
No, but many of his opponents do hate him.

“He was a moral coward who connived at Ustashi cruelties.”
There is no evidence of personal cowardice. You can argue in favor of moral imbecility in 1940-41, but not cowardice.

“He was treated well by the communists”
That’s a lie and you know it.

John Clare November 14, 2017 at 4:05 am

Why is it a lie? He was sent to prison but was comfortable there and was even allocated a room to say mass. Then he was released, but was not allowed to rampage round the country causing trouble. A very easy kind of “martyrdom”. He really should have been hanged.

“He was sent to prison…”
On charges that were mostly fabrications relating to the justifications of the suppression of his church. I don’t have a problem with calling him a minor Ustase collaborator, so perhaps his actual time served is justifiable. But beyond that? The court was contaminated by politics, no question.

“…but was comfortable there [in prison]…”
Tell us, how is that not a lie? You have personal experience in the matter? You’ve been deprived of your liberty and been comfortable about it? Now who is the moral idiot?

“…and was even allocated a room [in prison] to say mass”
The Wiki article on him strongly implies otherwise, since it mentions that he was allowed to say Mass during his house arrest. Perhaps you have confused the two?

“He really should have been hanged.”
Was his guilt any worse than the average Croat? Also, hanging him would have deprived the world of the opportunity to call him a martyr, since nothing he did during the war would have justified it.

He did not turn a bling eye. He watched, encouraged and approved. He may not have used the knife himself but he might as well have. He blessed evil men and evil deeds. He is no saint, not even a good person.

Stepanic was a war criminal who used his high office to give approval and comfort to the monsters who tortured hundreds of thousands of Serbian Christians and others. I am sure he is now in torment next to his master, Satan.
