Weirdest non-conspiracy theory conspiracy

IE it sounds like a conspiracy theory but it's real.

Hard to beat this opening para:

A French business coach and hypnosis specialist has learned that she narrowly escaped death at the hands of a hit squad with links to the secret services. They were alleged to be working for freemasons on a contract from a professional rival.

This section is meant to cover both.

But for me is the “winner” is the RCC conspiracy that ran for literally centuries and it only started being revealed in the 1980s.

Not just child rape, its systemic abuse of all types. We know from records now dating back to the start of the 20th century that it was happening, it is hard to believe it started then.

I had an ex who went to Catholic schools in the 1960s.

She hated nuns with an unbelievable and understandable passion. She thought they were the most perverted of them all. Abuse hardly begins to describe it.
