The Perfect Storm - Vatican City Meltdown

It is totally ironic that the Archbishop of Canterbury – a legitimate religious figure – has to state the truth and state the obvious.
The head of the Anglican church expressed regret Saturday for comments he made about the Irish Catholic Church, which included saying that the Irish Catholic Church has lost "all credibility" following the abuse scandal, his press office said.

In an interview to be broadcast Monday, Archbishop Rowan Williams called the issue "a colossal corporate trauma" for the Catholic Church, especially in Ireland. CNN
Rowan Williams did unfortunately back off a little later in the press when his moral words were felt to cut too deeply.

It is true. This “colossal corporate” failure in Ireland has produced one or two resignations from the failed corporate executives running that sham of holiness - by these third rate "second-handers" and religious crony parasites.

Across on the continent, the pope’s private preacher stated something appalling about media scrutiny and demand for accountability by making a rediculous delusional and grossly untrue reference to the Holocaust.

Sure, let’s victimize the Jews one more time – Standard Catholic Church Operating Procedure when in need of a scapegoat in times of Executive Mismanagement at the Vatican through the ages.

I find it strange that the pope’s private preacher also possibly identifies the pope and company with the Pharisees and high priests of the gospels and not the victims of children and or Jesus.

Latest off the press is how soon to be Saint John Paul the Great personally interceded and blocked the investigation of a pedophile cardinal.

John Paul ‘ignored abuse of 2,000 boys’
Allegations that the late pontiff blocked an inquiry into a paedophile cardinal, promoted senior church figures despite accusations that they had molested boys and covered up innumerable cases of abuse during his 26-year papacy have cast a cloud over his path to sainthood.

The most serious claims related to Cardinal Hans Hermann Groer, an Austrian friend of John Paul’s who abused an estimated 2,000 boys over decades but never faced any sanction from Rome.
The victims here are first the children corrupted by an untouchable and unmovable hierarchy answerable only to their god, whoever and whatever that god is over and above pride and greed for power and gross abuse of power.

Cardinal Christoph Schönborn of Vienna seems to be the pope’s Ventriloquist dummy lately in leaking or making statements for his friend Joe the Pope. That anything dumped on John Paul is supposed to relieve Cardinal Ratzinger who did not speak out and save children in favor of his own personal gain and power.

Complicity is also a crime here. Silence over conscience is complicity. Is a crime - Joe - is a crime.

The Nuremburg defense of “I was only following orders” is no good Joe the Pope.

We have now moved into the Nixon Defense of “ Anything I do is no crime.”

The little that Benedict did to stem child abuse by clergy has been too little and too late. And with no heart or passion in the task of building a path to true justice, resolution or closure. No closure is in sight yet on this modern day abomination that has caused this desolation and stain on the Christian character in this modern secular world.

Where is moral authority to be found in the modern Christian equation? I must stand and speak for myself. Authority in the hands of failed and corrupt corporation executives is unacceptable to this modern world.

Like Nixon Joe - It is time to go amidst this perfect storm of your own making, your own voluntary participation in these crimes against children who, by the way, are in fact humanity.

Time to resign !

Time for the true “People of God” – the Laity - to reform and rebuild that church.

Time for the long reign of Constantine to come to a final end.

Time for a rebirth (resurrection) of Christian faith everywhere.

You are so right. Reformation is at hand. The Catholic church has gotten so greedy and entitled to do what they will especially in the cases of ruining children's lives. Our souls are in danger if we keep silent.
