RC Church: Protect Paedophile Priests' Human Rights - Bugger The Victims (Literally)!

Yes, folks,surprise, surprise, it really is true (as if you didn't all know already), senior clergy in the RC Church have conspired with paedophiles for years to cover up their crimes against children.  So much for their oft-quoted, strident and totally spurious claim that: "All morality comes from (their imaginary, so-called) god!"

No less a figure than Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos,  who was one of the most influential figures in the Vatican until he retired last year, defended the church's history of sheltering abusive priests, saying that handing them over would have been like testifying against a family member. He had been asked by his local Columbian radio station, RCN, to explain why he had written to French Bishop Pierre Pican in 2001, lauding him for harbouring an abuser who was later jailed for 18 years. Cardinal Hoyos replied:
"The law in nations with a well-developed judiciary does not force anyone to testify against a child, a father, against other people close to the suspect.Why would they ask that of the church? That's the injustice. It's not about defending a paedophile. It's about defending the dignity and the human rights of a person, even the worst of criminals."
In the same interview, Cardinal Hoyos defended Pope Benedict XVI's predecessor, saying that :
" ... John Paul II, that holy pope (sic), was not wrong when he defended his priests so that they were not, due to economic reasons, treated like criminal paedophiles without due process".
Hoyos was made a cardinal in 1998 by Pope John Paul II and was head of the highly influential Congregation for the Clergy until 2006. One of its duties is to oversee complaints from clergy members who claim to have been unfairly punished by their superiors. Clearly Hoyos  considered his duties involved refusing to report cases to civil investigative authorities and being complicit, if not directly involved, in acts of paedophilia.Yesterday, the US newspaper, the National Catholic Reporter, published an investigation into Hoyos' time at the Congregation for the Clergy, reporting on how he had also intervened on behalf of a paedophile priest in America, against the wishes of his bishop who was trying to defrock him.

Meanwhile, Roger Vangheluwe, the Bishop of Bruges since 1984, announced he was resigning, after admitting that he had abused a boy. Vangheluwe stated:
"When I was still a simple priest, and for a while when I began as a bishop, I sexually abused a young man in my close entourage. I profoundly regret what I have done and I offer my sincerest apology to the victim, his family, the Catholic community and society in general."
It is perhaps no coincidence that Vangheluwe's resignation was made just as church officials confirmed that they were investigating 20 alleged cases of clerical abuse in Belgium. Strange that his conscience didn't appear to have prompted him to resign during any of his previous 26 years of lording it over his bishoprick!

Immodest Muslim Women Cause Natural Disasters!

Rational readers may think that the young Muslim woman pictured is a raving lunatic for commenting as she does, but her views are entirely in accordance with that senior Muslim cleric and arch-idiot Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi who said during Friday prayers in Tehran last week that:
"Many women who do not dress modestly ... lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which increases earthquakes."
Sedighi then added:
"What can we do to avoid being buried under the rubble?" There is no other solution but to take refuge in religion and to adapt our lives to Islam's moral codes."
Sedighi subsequently made another preposterous claim:
"A divine authority told me to tell the people to make a general repentance. Why? Because calamities threaten us."
But all is not bad news, for Sedighi claims that there is a simple solution to these horrific natural disasters:
"If a natural earthquake hits Tehran, no one will be able to confront such a calamity but God's power, only God's power. ... So let's not disappoint God."
Not to be outdone by the lunatic Sedighi, Minister of Welfare and Social Security Sadeq Mahsooli said prayers and pleas for forgiveness were the best "formulas to repel earthquakes."Mahsooli continued:
"We cannot invent a system that prevents earthquakes, but God has created this system and that is to avoid sins, to pray, to seek forgiveness, pay alms and self-sacrifice."
So, if only that young woman in the picture will now go away and put on her burkha there will be no more earthquakes!

Alternatively, Sedighi and Mahsooli could be put on a course anti-psychotic drugs and placed in a secure environment for the mentally insane.

Now that sounds like a much more sensible proposal!

Mind you, this isn't the first time that some member of the lunatic Muslim clergy (with apologies for the tautology) has blamed women for Muslim men being unable to control their carnal desires, as can be seen here.

The Truth About Paedophilia - By A Professional Tergivestator

In an important speech this week by that professional tergivestator, Cardinal Bertone (pictured),  the Holy See's Secretary of State and Benny Ratsare's most senior aide and arse-licker, he grudgingly acknowledged that both his master and the Roman Catholic Church had covered-up for predatory paedophile priests in their midst but added that unspecified 'research' had proved that it was their homosexuality which was exclusively to blame for their molestation of children. 

Notably, however, Bertone failed to provide any specific details of this alleged research, nor did he cite references to where peer-reviewed evidence substantiating it could be found, but his pronouncements simply must be true because he is, as already stated, the Holy See's Secretary of State and Benny Ratsare's most senior aide and arse-licker. Nevertheless, he should make his sources known, for clearly this research is of major import in proving his claims that:
  • molestation of children is exclusively a same-sex phenomenon;
  • there has never been cases of heterosexual child-abuse; 
  • the RC Church is right to excoriate homosexuality per se;
  • all Roman Catholic priests, especially senior one's like Bertone, speak nothing but the plain and unvarnished truth about absolutely everything.
 Bertone then concluded his speech with yet further revelatory evidence from this unspecified research to which he had referred:
  • All clerics are liars and dissemblers! 
 Unfortunately that admission went largely unreported, because every rational person already knows it to be absolutely true, unlike Bertone's entirely spurious claim that there is any serious research in existence evidencing causation between homosexuality and child-molestation. But then what can one expect from a man who is a professional tergivestator and who makes his living by exploiting the ignorant, superstitious, credulous and psychologically needy amongst us.

The RC Church Still Fails To Grasp Reality!

After the earlier outrageous comments by leading lights in the RC Church during their much vaunted 'Easter Week' (see here and here), no further evidence should be required to prove that this corrupt organisation still fails to grasp reality. However, the comments yesterday by Cardinal Angelo Sodano, Dean of the College of Cardinals, demonstrate just how completely out of touch ALL of this wicked and evil gang of charlatans and abusers really are.

Sodano - pictured - (or 'Angie Sod me' to his pals in the expensive silk gowns that they love to adorn themselves with), tried to ingratiate himself with his boss, Benny Ratsarse AKA 'Il Poopoo', with this egregiously sycophantic statement echoing Benny's own earlier comment which was reported here:
"The people of God are with you and do not allow themselves to be impressed by the petty gossip of the moment."
Whilst Sod-me's remarks were cheered vociferously by the mindless crowd of immoral morons in St. Peter's Square yesterday, decent people elsewhere were highly critical. As Barbara Blaine, from the US-based Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP), said:
"Victims are seeking consolation and healing and should not be insulted and told that our speaking out is petty gossip."
Notably Sodano's comment was made after Il Poopoo's personal priest, Randy Cantalamessa had gone on record to apologise for the spurious and offensive comments he had made earlier in the week (see here) with this statement to the Corriere della Sera:
"If I inadvertently hurt the feelings of Jews and paedophilia victims, I sincerely regret it and I apologise."
Mind you,  Cantalamessa's retraction would have sounded more sincere if he had added,
"And the Church will do everything possible to assist the criminal authorities to prosecute  paedophile priests AND THOSE WHO COVERED UP FOR THEM!"
Unfortunately, the chances of that happening are about as slim as the RC Church admitting that it is only 'petty gossip' that their so-called 'God' exists anywhere other than in their diseased imaginations as clearly they are completely unable to grasp reality.

The Supreme Hubris of the Roman Catholic Church

Following on from Benny Ratsarse's offensive dismissal of criticism  last Sunday for his covering-up over predatory paedophilic priests (see here), the Rev. Raniero Cantalamessa (pictured), Il Poopoo's personal priest, proclaimed today that the attacks on his (ex) Nazi boss and the completely corrupt organisation he represents were effectively as bad as the worst extremes of anti-Semitism which culminated in the murder of 6 million Jews in the Holocaust, the destruction of their places of worship, and the theft of all their wordly belongings. However, I am pleased to be able to report that these entirely spourious claims have been met with justified outrage, not only by the victims of said vile abuse, but by Jewish groups and all right-minded and decent-thinking people worldwide. Here are just some typical responses...

Stephan Kramer, general-secretary of Germany's Central Council of Jews, said Cantalamessa's remarks were "a so-far-unheard-of insolence." He went on:
"It is repulsive, obscene and most of all offensive toward all abuse victims as well as to all the victims of the Holocaust. So far I haven't seen St. Peter burning, nor were there outbursts of violence against Catholic priests. I'm without words. The Vatican is now trying to turn the perpetrators into victims."

 Rabbi Gary Greenebaum, US director of inter-religious relations for the American Jewish Committee, called the comments "an unfortunate use of language." He continued:
"The collective violence against the Jews resulted in the death of 6 million, while the collective violence spoken of here has not led to murder and destruction, but perhaps character assault."
  
Peter Isely, spokesman for the US victim support group Snap, said the sermon had been "reckless and irresponsible".He then stated:
"They're sitting in the papal palace, they're experiencing a little discomfort, and they're going to compare themselves to being rounded up or lined up and sent in cattle cars to Auschwitz?You cannot be serious."
Even the BBC's  correspondent in Rome, David Willey, has admitted that the comments show the Church is continuing to defend itself rigorously and outspokenly against accusations of having systematically covered up cases of sexual abuse by priests in recent decades.Rather that than acknowledge the truth and make proper amends, eh David?

Mind you we shouldn't be too surprised at the church's continued mendacity, duplicity, and arrogance, for the whole edifice is built on a pile of lies and deceits from its earliest days to the present.

PS. According to the BBC,  the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr. Rowan Williams has criticised the Roman Catholic Church for the way in which it has covered-up this vile abuse by predatory paedophile priests over the years and said that as an institution it has lost "all credibility", going on to add:
"And an institution so deeply bound into the life of a society, suddenly becoming, suddenly losing all credibility - that's not just a problem for the Church, it is a problem for everybody in Ireland."(sic)
Whilst on Easter Sunday, Cardinal Keith O'Brien, the head of the Roman Catholic Church in Scotland, is expected to apologise during his Easter address in Edinburgh to the victims of paedophile priests.He will say:
"Crimes against children have indeed been committed and any Catholics who were aware of such crimes and did not act to report them, brings shame on us all."
For that disgustingly duplicitous priest Randy Cantalamessa to liken all  these people to the Nazis for daring to criticise his boss demonstrates the egregious lack of integrity, monumental duplicity, and supreme hubris that his Church has exemplified over the millennia.

Presumably Randy would like us to forget  that his boss, Benny Ratsarse, was also a Nazi at one time, failing which for us to pretend that it was only those others, the 'bad' Nazis, who were party to that vile organisation and participated, either by acts of omission or commission, in anti-Semitism.But don't let us forget that the very organisation which Randy and Benny belong to likes to pretend that it, under the leadership of that infamous liar and Nazi-collaborator, Pope Pius XII (see here), actually saved millions of Jews from Nazi atrocities. As Benny Ratsarse once had the temerity to declare:
"[Pius XII] spared no effort, wherever it was possible, to intervene [for Jews] directly or through instructions given to individuals or institutions in the Catholic Church."
Which explains, no doubt, why the RC Church willingly hid so many murderous ex-Nazis in its midst for decades after the War and helped them evade prosecution by the authorities for their anti-Semitism.

Hmmm, seems to me like the RC Church has a long and well-established history of covering-up for the criminals in its midst, and that Benny Ratsarse, Il Poopoo himself, has been at the heart of it!
