There is somebody in Germany who comes forth and says he got molested by a priest under Archbishop Ratzinger’s jurisdiction and tenure. After some delay, hemming and hawing, some underling has fallen on his sword for the commander in chief and stated that he made the decision to house this molester away from his parish etc. and then the “priest” went on to molest more children unimpeded for another thirty years.
Joseph Ratzinger is a liar. You don’t get to the Vatican by being a lazy shit in the front office and not know what the underlings are doing in the back office especially when that nothing is criminal conduct of an employee.
Let’s wait for the next abused child turned adult to come forth. I cannot believe this is an isolated incident. It is only one that has come into range of the media.
Joe the Pope will not resign from his criminal activity in the name of Christ. And this is where the RC church must turn on a dime and examine its future role in society if any.
This molesting sideline by a small percentage of its clergy has been swept under the rug for so long, that it is now considered part of the Sacred Tradition of the RC church?
Problem in the past is that this has all been dealt with as a sin to be forgiven and not as a crime, which it is in most countries of the world. That church operates without respect of the nations of the planet. It looks upon itself as a theocracy answerable to nobody. That the recent experiments in the last few centuries in democracy and humanism etc. are attacked under the label “modernism” and modernism is to be shunned.
The Pope and his church have "brought only evil to the world” as said of Islam some years back by this same religious hack.
Vatican Sees Campaign Against the Pope
In Germany, a man whose case has raised questions about the actions of the Munich Archdiocese when Benedict was the archbishop there said Saturday that church officials had told him that the priest who abused him in 1979 would not be allowed to work with children again. Instead, the priest was allowed to resume full duties almost immediately, and went on to abuse more children.And an article from 2006 to illustrate how this ongoing criminal infestation continues and continues:
The Vatican also sought to defend the pope against criticism that a Vatican rule requiring secrecy in abuse cases was tantamount to obstruction of justice in civil courts. …
The archdiocese said in a statement on Friday that the priest was moved to Munich in 1980 for therapy with the approval of Archbishop Joseph Ratzinger, the man who later became Pope Benedict. But the priest was soon reassigned to pastoral work by Archbishop Ratzinger’s deputy, Vicar General Gerhard Gruber, and was later convicted of sexually abusing minors. “You see how they just kept moving him around,” Wilfried F. said. “He could keep doing it like before.”
The archdiocese has acknowledged making “serious mistakes” in handling the case. In a statement, the former vicar general took full responsibility for the decision to reinstate the priest to pastoral work.---New York Times By RACHEL DONADIO and NICHOLAS KULISH Published: March 13, 2010
Pope 'led cover-up of child abuse by priests'
The Pope played a leading role in a systematic cover-up of child sex abuse by Roman Catholic priests, according to a shocking documentary to be screened by the BBC tonight.There are good Catholic Christians out there who must endure the burden of this cross from all its corrupt bishops who routinely cover up crimes against children in the interest of protecting their vested interest in that institution.
In 2001, while he was a cardinal, he issued a secret Vatican edict to Catholic bishops all over the world, instructing them to put the Church's interests ahead of child safety.
The document recommended that rather than reporting sexual abuse to the relevant legal authorities, bishops should encourage the victim, witnesses and perpetrator not to talk about it. And, to keep victims quiet, it threatened that if they repeat the allegations they would be excommunicated.
I pray they have the strength to endure and throw these bums out into the street and into jail where they belong.
