"I would lay awake every night, shaking in fear that this would be a night you would touch me. Can you imagine that? Can you? Jesus on the Cross on the wall saw you coming every night to molest us. He must have been shocked and grieved every time. I hope he cried like we did, because we were innocent children."

WALL JESUS IS WATCHING YOU RAPE

Ratzinger was once head of the Vatican's powerful CDF, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, charged in certain circumstances with investigating the sexual abuse of minors by priests. And though church records show the abuse by Father Murphy was brought to the attention of Ratzinger and the CDF years ago, a church trial against the headmaster was stopped and he was allowed to remain a priest.

Maybe the priest thought sine = appostle over adolescence.

This is just a way for you people to attack religion and nothing more while actually not caring about kids. You are all just as guilty according to your own logic.

This spring my sister just bought a house a block away from that school. The owner was a deaf hermit who never left the house. He just sat up in the attic chain smoking his life away. His estranged sisters were the only next of kin for his estate. Makes you wonder.

Wow, this bad press is just splattering all over the Vatican.
 
2010-09-23 03:00:36 PM  
Is anyone honestly surprised? Bernard Cardinal Law, when he was Archbishop of Boston, dealt with sex abuse by moving the accused priests around so they could ply their perversion on unsuspecting boys in different parishes. How did Ratzinger react? He brought Law to sanctuary in the Vatican and gave him the honor of giving a requiem mass for John Paul II. Essentially he gave the world his upraised middle finger while continuing to honor a man who had actively protected and practically abetted pedophile priests.

Ratzinger is a scumbag.

"The accusations against me were for actions alleged to have taken place over twenty-five years ago," Murphy wrote. "I am seventy-two years of age, your Eminence, and am in poor health. I have repented of any of my past transgressions." The priest basically asked to be left alone, writing "I simply want to live out the time that I have left in the dignity of my priesthood. I ask your kind assistance in this matter."

He died in 1998 and was buried in Milwaukee with the full dignity and honors of a Holy Roman Catholic priest in good standing


Times like this, I really wish I believed in an eternal firey hell so I could imagine him roasting in it.

We're proud to offer our new product, Catholicism....

It's Christianity Lite: Twice the kiddie-diddling, half the guilt!

...and if you call in the next ten minutes, we'll throw in a special gift: An effigy of the pope, made with soap and hung on a convenient shower cord... That's right, we'll throw in our popular "Soap Pope On A Rope" for absolutely nothing! We're also adding not one, but TWO bible passages specifically concerning rape. Why two? It's for the folks that REALLY like their bible rape verses! You can't lose!

Call now, our guaranteed-chaste operators are standing by!

Look is this really that important, considering that in approximately 2 trillion years, the dark energy-fueled expansion of the universe will ensure that even gamma rays from galaxies outside our local supercluster will have wavelengths longer than the size of the observable universe, essentially making all other galaxies undetectable by any means?

Either that, or people view hot blond females seducing willing teenage boys slightly differently than old men raping prepubescents. Who knows?

It's really too bad no court has jurisdiction over the Pope. The Pope could literally walk out into the street and shoot someone in the face in broad daylight, and unless some country made a human rights case to invade the sovereign Vatican, no one could bring him to justice. A civil suit is a joke, unless the Pope decides to pay this guy out of the goodness of his heart, or for good PR or whatever.

I know you're just trolling but when a teacher molest student article hit fark, it's because the teacher got busted and is being tried as a sex offender, not being the school administration has been trying their best to hide pedophiles and move teachers that molest students around to other schools.

200 deaf kids raped by someone who was in charge of caring for them.

I don't care if your a priest, teacher, whatever it makes me wish I was religious because I would like to think someone this farking vile is suffering for the rest of eternity.

If they just led priests get married, I think there would be so much less of this crap going on. Instead, I guess the Catholic church thinks chastity of a human being is more important than NOT MOLESTING CHILDREN.
 
2010-09-23 03:19:24 PM  
I've always been conflicted by the Catholic Church. On one paw, I'm fairly anti-religious, especially on the actions of Catholic church on their role in protecting these people.

On the other paw, I've never heard of the Catholic church physically stopping the victims from contacting the police.

I think foreign heads of state are immune from suit in US Courts, but you might want to check with Manuel Noriega on that.
