Did the Church suppress the Dead Sea Scrolls?

In their controversial book, The Dead Sea Scrolls Deception, the authors Michael Baigent and Richard Leigh give a theory for the long period of time between the discovery of the Dead Sea scrolls and when their contents were finally made public. They say the church was hiding evidence found in the scrolls that Jesus was a fictional character made up by the apostle Paul, who was a sleeper agent for the Romans.

If the theory sounds ludicrous, it is. These are the two crackpot authors that made up the Priory of Sion. Here

Based on the many hundreds of hours that I spent in front of the History Channel, “The” (what evolved into the catholic) Church funked around with a lot of history. 

My church didn’t, however.  But we have to make due with what was left after the many alterations.

Yeah, it would be a bit tricky for the Vatican to withhold releasing the unpublished Dead Sea Scrolls when the Israelis are the ones who had most of them. . .

Actually the Rockefeller Museum has held up many parts of the scrolls from release.  John Allegro who worked on translation of them complaiined about certain texts not being released.  Suspiciously, Joseph Ratzinger was in charge of the scrolls and what was and what was not released.  He of course is now known as Pope Benedict.  The church has had a long standing tradition of suppression and destruction of documents not to it’s liking.  One of the prime reasons the church used the Inquisition was to ferret out and destroy anything that might contradict Church Dogma.  The Cistercians saved many documents from destruction by secreting them away.  Many sacred texts were no doubt burned after the Cathars were murdered at Albi in France, but some escaped by way of some brave souls who snuck out in the night to protect them during the seige at Montseignor, (sp).
