vudukungfu: Shut that rape factory down


If only.  To many people are to afraid of either eternal torment or their own thoughts to ever allow that.
 
2022-01-25 8:34:03 AM  
So much for "god's chosen representative". Turns out he's just another pedo rapist protector.
 
2022-01-25 8:34:50 AM  
Well duh.  He was in charge of discipline in the middle of an era of rampant abuse and coverups. This admission is nowhere near enough.
If you were a priest expressing tolerance for gays or abortion at that time you'd have heard from Ratzinger and his cronies real fast.

I've been assured that the Catholic Church isn't its leaders, despite it being created with the explicit purpose of its leaders being the only connection to their god.

Hey, uh, Pope-guy? Might wanna check your book, specifically, those 10 "guidelines" y'all keep shoving down our throat.

No one found it strange at the time that he was the first Pope since, like, the 15th century to resign?

The conversation that went on while he had that discussion must have been a hoot.

It's not like Protestants are rapist-free. They're just all smaller organizations so their raping ways aren't as big of a story.

Though not explicitly in the commandments, Vanity and Avarice are two of the venial sins.
 
2022-01-25 9:19:14 AM  
When he was elected conservatives rejoiced because they assumed it would usher in a return to the 16th century. He opened that door, and those freakish conservatives that like the pomp like Covid-Cardinal Burke were seen as the future...after all the Holy Spirit doesn't make mistakes right?  So then Benny retires and who does the Holy Spirit choose?  A Jesuit from Argentina. So rather than admit that maybe they were wrong or that they need to rethink things, they double down, like Republicans, and declare Francis a false pope.

Now. Even if you are not a Catholic, what is most disturbing is that the child abuse stuff seems to arise with those leaders who are most conservative and in line with JPII. Again, like Republicans, they protest way too much.

Don't be ridiculous. Sure, he may have done a bit of light false witnessing here and there, but there's no evidence of him ever being a bear...

he says he's reviewing 2000 pages of documents related to the situation.  1000 to 1 he's reading about the child rape and masturbating.

It probably helps that they don't have their own country that has the privilege of refusing extradition, along with pretty significant powers to move the perpetrators of crimes from one country to another, or back to their own country.

Shut down the bespoke rape factories as well as the mega, assembly line rape factories.

I'm non-discriminatory. All of the rape factories can, and should, get shut down.

This is major league scapegoating by the Vatican.  They're trying to dump all their sins on the 94 year old guy who's going to be dead soon anyway.  Yes, Ratzie ignored and reassigned pedo priests back in the 70s and 80s but he was only one of hundreds of other bishops who did the same thing.  The entire church hierarchy needs a reckoning.

Well, so, here's the thing. False witness means saying you saw something you didn't.  If you're lying for your neighbor, it's not against him and you're falsely didn't witness anything, so you're cool.

Huh, you really can make the Bible say whatever you want.

We have known that there is institutional rape in the Catholic church, priests protected and children's bodies and minds sacrificed to those priests for decades and decades.

In Canada it is apparent they have so far gotten away with mass murder as well.

When will the scales of justice be balanced here, so far it's been 99% in the favour of the church but why?

Evidence would suggest the church is evil in its heart, why would they act like they do if that is not true.

More than half of those have major issues with him now, and should have had problems for decades really.

If it wasn't clear why he quit before it should be painfully clear now. Farking pedos all over that creepy misogynistic cult

Eh, I don't think they're trying to pin the whole thing on him. This just grew out of an investigation in the diocese that he used to be the head of.

I think it's much more about internal church politics and the right-wing nutjobs that are calling for Ratzinger to replace Francis: https://www.reuters.com/article/us-pope-benedict/ex-pope-benedict-chides-fanatical-catholics-who-reject-his-resignation-idUSKCN2AT3BI
