Paedophile Priests : It’s Our Fault (via The Mad Hatters)

with 11 comments

I confess defeat. I cannot find the words to express the contempt and disgust in which I hold the Pope and his vile church. I do not understand how any decent person (Tony Blair for one!) can possibly continue to support this wicked and evil cult.

Pedophile Priests : It's Our FaultIn his annual Christmas address to Bishops and Cardinals, Pope Benedict had a few words to say about the sexual abuse of children by priests that gained wide public attention during 2010. The ‘humiliation’ the RC church had suffered worldwide as a consequence of the actions of a minority of priests, he said, should be a spur for the church to re-examine it’s teachings that had allowed such abuse to go on for so long.

The sexual abuse of children by priests, however had to be seen in a wider societal context. It was part of the ‘sexual permissiveness’ of the ’70′s that had made child pornography, drug use, and sexual trafficking to some degree permissible.

Representatives of abuse victims have dismissed the Pope’s comments as “absolute nonsense” – as a further attempt by the Pope to evade full responsibility for the actions of pedophile priests and the failure of the Church to help and support the victims of abuse, choosing instead to protect the perpetrators rather than risk damage to the good name of the church should the crimes be exposed.

Just An Evil Old Man

What more shame and ignominy can the Catholic Church bring upon itself?  Now it seems that the present Pope is guilty of overlooking what seems to be the favourite hobby of Catholic priests – the sexual abuse of children.

According to The Times last Saturday, in 1980 the then Cardinal Ratzinger approved a decision to send a priest for therapy in Munich after he forced an 11 year old boy to perform oral sex on him.  Later the same priest abused more children and the only answer the Cardinal and his cronies could come up with was to relocate him.  Now the Church is desperately trying to disassociate the Pope from this scandal, saying that he had left decisions to lower-level officials.  See here for the full story.

The Catholic Church has been responsible for as much evil in the world as any other institution.  Now we see that it goes to the very top and continues.

Too many have died in the name of Christ for anyone to heed the call.

Crosby, Stills & Nash

It is time that this outdated institution was outlawed.  Criminal charges should be brought against the Pope and all the cardinals, priests and other apologists for sin and wickedness.  How can we in the West complain about the evil influence of Islam until we put our own house in order?
