An press release by a a secret religious organization has stirred a significant uproar over the Christian world, By claiming to recognize 8978 living descendants of Jesus Christ.
The strange document is signed by Louis-Édouard du Bellay, the Grand Master of the Priory of Sion, an undercover and shadowy organization which was made renowned by Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code novel
Copies of the 54-page report were sent to many media outlets around the globe yesterday, and in addition being made accessible online the Priory of Sion’s website. It quickly incited a shock wave all through the Christian world, as the ideas it inspires contradict many fundamental aspects of the Christian faith.
“The Divine Order of the Priory of Sion is requesting the help of every single true believers in protecting the remaining descendants of Jesus Christ from the Vatican. After the passing of numerous individuals of our organization, the task of protecting all individuals from the Divine Bloodline is presently past our ability, and we desperately need help in achieving our thousand year old mission,” reads the introductory paragraph, which sets the tone for the entire text.
The document explains, the secret organization as suffered great losses over the last few years, and is currently not able of finishing its mission of protecting the “bloodline of the Christ”. It claims that “the Opus Dei and their associates” have executed more than 4000 descendants in the course of the most recent 10 years, adding that they will completely eradicate the bloodline if they are not stopped.
Many reporters have expressed their doubts about the legitimacy and the veracity of the document, but some experts in religious organizations consider that the document is to be taken very seriously.
The historian and secret society expert, Hans Gunthermänn, explains that many of his contacts inside the Priory of Sion have gone missing over the last few years, and that the content of the document is “really credible”.
“The Priory definitely seems so be struggling at the moment,” said Professor Gunthermänn, “so this kind of desperate gesture is really plausible. They must hope for help from other Christian organizations in their fight, and expect that now that they are warned of the danger, the descendants of the Christ will take measures to protect themselves.”
As indicated by the report, the bloodline of the Christ appears to have spread over the whole planet over the last 2000 years.The individuals named on the list are spread accross over 47 different countries, and most of them had no clue that they were descendants of Jesus.
The countries hosting the largest numbers of alleged descendants are the United States with 891, France with 583, the Palestinian territories with 518 and Germany with 429.
Among the hundreds of alleged descendants who were reached over the phone by various reporters since the release of the document, only two seemed to be aware of their singular bloodline.
