Have you been reading the most recent material detailing the Catholic Church's Great Morality Crusade to Molest Children and Cover It Up?
Surprisingly, the evils perpetrated on children by numerous priests, and now a culpable Pope Benedict Ratzinger....has actually made front page news. It's about time.
Those who read here know that I've posted several times on the evils associated with the worldwide Roman Catholic Church. I haven't done this to single out Catholicism.....far from it, the Church has singled itself out by it's darkly evil behavior.
The responses by Roman Catholic Church leaders, though, is even more sickening....if that's even possible. Here's Archbishop Dolan of the Archdiocese of New York....
"What causes us Catholics to bristle is not only the latest revelations of sickening sexual abuse by priests, and blindness on the part of some who wrongly reassigned them — such stories, unending though they appear to be, are fair enough, — but also that the sexual abuse of minors is presented as a tragedy unique to the Church alone."
In addition to the sickening penchant within the leadership of the Catholic Church to cover for serial child rapists.....what also makes Catholics "bristle", says Dolan, is that the Church is being "unique(ly) presented", presumably by media, as the ONLY child molesting group out there. The assumption, very similar to Sarah Palin's, "I'm a victim of the lamestream media unfairness",...is that, some-effing-how, the Catholic Church is being unfairly targeted.
I don't think so.
It seems that Pope Benedict, to coin a phrase, harbored child molesting terrorists before he became the Papa....
"...the current Pope, then a Cardinal named Joseph Ratzinger, seems to have quashed an effort to bring a serial child abuser named Lawrence Murphy to a church trial. The inaction of Ratzinger’s office resulted in Murphy being allowed to die “in the dignity of the priesthood,” which was his wish as expressed in a letter to then-Cardinal Ratzinger in January 1998."
The L.A. Times....
"On Friday, the New York Times reported that, as archbishop of Munich, Ratzinger presided over a meeting that approved the return to parish work of an admitted pedophile, who went on to molest more children. A memo from that period also seems to show that the cardinal was "kept informed about the priest's assignment.""
All this ugliness has motivated writer Matt Taibbi to state some very obvious, though shrill, conclusions....
I think it’s time we started considering that what the church is is even worse than that. It’s possible we should start wondering if the church is also a criminal organization that in this country, anyway, should be broken up using RICO statutes.
We don’t permit countries that harbor terrorists to participate in international society, but the Catholic Church — an organization that has been proven over and over again to systematically enable child molesters, right up now to the level of the Pope — is given a free pass. In fact the Church is not only not sanctioned in any serious way, it gets to retain its outrageous tax-exempt status, which makes its systematic child abuse, in this country at least, a government-subsidized activity.
Shrill...but 100% true. No other group, organization or person can carry out organized child rape and abuse over decades, conspire to cover it up, (in most cases purposely avoiding any contact with law enforcement), and continue to be subsidized by the federal government.
For perspective here.....remember that the excuse given for confronting David Koresh at Waco (and eventually burning him and all of his followers up)...was that there was a suspicion that underage children were being abused. Something about underage children being forced into sexual intercourse by Koresh. Remember that?
Many folks don't fully appreciate the clarity of writer's like Taibbi, instead choosing to criticize him for his occasional f-bomb droppings. That's unfortunate. Here, Taibbi confronts the real source of the Roman Catholic Church leadership's deviancy......
"Somewhere underneath all of this there is a root story that has to do with celibacy."
This humble Reverend has been trying to communicate that truth for quite some time now. The fundamental DOCTRINES of the Catholic Church....celibacy, virgin birth, and original sin, to name just a few....have created these monstrous evils that still plague society 17 centuries later.
What I still cannot quite comprehend.....is why any Catholic would continue to frequent, let alone support, such an organized, child-molestation enterprise. A criminal enterprise which includes it's highest leadership.
