Chile abuse priest Fernando Karadima removed by Vatican

Chile abuse priest Fernando Karadima removed by Vatican

Pope Francis has removed the priest at the centre of Chile's clerical sex abuse scandal.
In a statement, the Vatican said the pontiff had defrocked Fernando Karadima for "the good of the Church".
The 88-year-old former priest had previously been sanctioned to a lifetime of "penance and prayer" for having sexually abused minors.
In June, the Pope accepted the resignations of three Chilean bishops in the wake of the scandal.
They included the controversial Juan Barros who was accused of covering up sexual abuse committed by Karadima in the 1980s and 1990s.

Karadima was found guilty of abusing teenage boys over many years in a Vatican investigation in 2011. He was not removed from the Vatican at that time and denies wrongdoing.

About 80 Roman Catholic priests have been reported to authorities in Chile for alleged sexual abuse over the past 18 years.


"He defrocked Fernando Karadima for "the good of the Church"." Why not reported to the police and thrown in jail "for the good of the kids"??
The meek shall inherit the Earth, the rest of us will fly to the stars.

Never underestimate the power of very stupid people in large groups

Arguing with an engineer is like wrestling with a pig in mud ..... after a while you realise that the pig likes it!
