Vatican tells bishops to report abuse cases to police
In an attempt to prove that the Vatican is heeding criticism of its handling of pedophile priests, the Holy See today issued detailed instructions to its bishops on how to report abuse to the police.Part of a little and too late “transparency” Public Relations campaign in the midst of the meltdown of the Vatican’s (im)moral authority worldwide over sex abuse by its clergy. Some estimates put the last 50 year period in America alone at 4,000 abusive priests and as many as 100,000 victims. Others countries stats are no doubt similar.
The short set of rules, published online in English, is an attempt to satisfy critics who have accused the Catholic church of covering up some of the dozens of abuse cases coming to light in the US and Europe. "Civil law concerning reporting of crimes to the appropriate authorities should always be followed," it states.
In the recent hate campaign to deflect from this sex abuse scandal, a whole lot of the bathwater along with the baby has been tossed out as camouflage to hide behind. First it was the Jews!
Bishop 'blames Jews' for criticism of Catholic church record on abuse
A website quoted Giacomo Babini, the emeritus bishop of Grosseto, as saying he believed a "Zionist attack" was behind the criticism, considering how "powerful and refined" the criticism is.And of course in following with the Vatican’s secret foreign policy “Contemno vitium obviam populus diversus ordo” (hate crimes against people of different classes)(warning-sarcasm), Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone announces that the Gays did it. (from first article above)
The comments, which have been denied by the bishop, follow a series of statements from Catholic churchmen alleging the existence of plots to weaken the church and Pope Benedict XVI.
Allegedly speaking to the Catholic website Pontifex, Babini, 81, was quoted as saying: "They do not want the church, they are its natural enemies. Deep down, historically speaking, the Jews are God killers."
As the guidelines were being issued, the pope's secretary of state, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone risked new controversy by claiming that paedophilia was linked to homosexuality.Hey Tarcisio, did you know that from my own experience and opinion, that perhaps 60% to 70% of the homophobes of this planet are the biggest closeted homosexuals?
"Many psychologists and psychiatrists have shown that there is no link between celibacy and pedophilia but many others have shown, I have recently been told, that there is a relationship between homosexuality and paedophilia," he told a news conference in Santiago.
So Tarcisio, you are like a child rape expert because you are like really gay???
(P.S. I like your shades dude.)
