Pope Francis condemns child sex abuse and Church cover-ups

RE: Pope Francis condemns child sex abuse and Church cover-ups
So wait, all these years pope knew about this, hid it, did not publish the list of predator priests so that parents can protect their kids and now that he got caught he suddenly condemns it?! Seems to me like he is just covering his ass here. If he is so sorry and condemning it why doesn't he report the rest of the pedophile priests? These were just priests from dioceses in the state of Pennsylvania. There are many more dioceses in the world.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

The incidents of attempts to spirit paedophile priests out of countries where they were caught raping children to other countries with no reciprocal extradition treaties has accelerated under Bergoglio. The case which set off the current ecclesiastical crisis in Chile was an attempt to spirit a mass rapist to Spain the plans of which passed through Bergoglio's own desk.

When the pope stands in the square and invites the authorities to come in and drag the fuckers off..instead of asking for "forgiveness"..I'll fistbump the supposedly cooler pope.

I might even go back to mass, because that would be a verifiable miracle.... lol.

Talk is cheap Bergoglio. It's time to name names.

Release all Church records to the relevant authorities regarding child abuse and any attempts to cover it up or obstruct justice. If that means high ranking members of the RCC go to jail, including Ratzenberger or yourself, accept that judgement with humility. There will be plenty of opportunity for prayer and penance in a jail cell.

And be prepared to empty your coffers to start compensating every member of the community who has been harmed by the criminal actions of the RCC.

Otherwise, this is just another lame PR exercise.

Pope Francis has condemned the "atrocities" of child sex abuse and clerical cover-ups in a letter to the world's 1.2bn Roman Catholics.
The letter to "the People of God" calls for an end to the "culture of death" in the Church, addresses failures to deal with abuse and asks for forgiveness.
Last week a grand jury report detailed seven decades of abuse in Pennsylvania.
The landmark investigation found more than 1,000 identifiable minors had been abused by 300 priests in the US state.
Thousands more are thought to have fallen victim. The inquiry found evidence of systematic cover-ups by the Church, with many cases now too old for prosecution.
After the report was made public, the Vatican said the Pope was on the side of victims against "predator" priests.

A bit odd I think following decadesCENTURIES of the church protecting and hiding pedo priests, they should all be named and arrested  Angry

TFTFY
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

Why priests themselves don't step down from their position to find a wife they could smash and praise the lord at the same time? They want to have a really productive spiritual life even if their brains starts to crumble, which wouldn't happen if they weren't such perfectionists.

Why?  All he's doing is running his fucking mouth which is all he did the other times.  When he directs his lawyers and lobbyists to drop the campaigns against statute of limitations extensions, turns pervert priests and their enabling bishops, archbishops and cardinals over to the civil authorities for real punishment and sells his gold fucking throne to compensate the victims THEN he will be doing something that could cause him a problem.

Right now.  It's just the same old catholick bullshit.

YES! a thousand times yes!

The things probably as counterfeit as their remorse and doctrine.  Just saying.

Remember this from decades ago?





Did the fucker apologize then? No. Did he do anything to prevent child molestation? No. They all continued playing their "holiest of the holies" routine where they also play the victim and caused Sinead's career to be ruined and made her look like a lunatic, because they don't give a shit about the victims. Vatican just cares about the money and all they want is to protect their business.

But decades later it turns out she was right and Pope(s) is the monster and an insane person. They continued playing it up until few months ago when pope yelled at the victims in Chile, but only this time press was on the side of the victims and showed that Pope was full of shit and he had to backtrack and apologize.

Vatican is losing it -pope is not the untouchable definition of goodness in this world anymore and they're slowly succumbing to their knees.
