Pope’s message? I saw it for what it is- another predictable Catholic distraction to avoid accountability and a continuation of the Catholic Church’s unwritten policy to lie about the organized sexual exploitation of children.
The Vatican Heirachy, and this so called “Nazi Pope” is head of the modern day papal inquisition, The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. But the fact that the Pope personally shielded child raping priests in his home archbishopric of Munich, and is the author of the Vatican’s standing policy requiring that Bishops conceal evidence of sexual abuse by priests, has made him personally complicit in obstructing justice and engaging in a clear crime against humanity: the organized sexual exploitation of children. He was responsible for creating and enforcing…crimen sollicitationis’ (crime of solicitation) where Catholic
Priests invoked one of the most powerful tenets of the Catholic faith – To bar the vctim (innocent children) or his abuser from ever speaking out. This oath of silence was part of the secret church decree called ‘crimen sollicitationis’ (crime of solicitation). The directive was written in 1962, and Catholic bishops worldwide are ordered to keep it locked away in the church safe. It instructs them on how to deal with priests who solicit sex from the confessional. But it also deals with any obscene external acts with youths of either sex. Child abuse. Originally written in Latin it imposes the strictest oath of secrecy on the child victim, the priest dealing with the allegation, and any witnesses. Breaking that oath means instant banishment from the Catholic Church – excommunication.
The procedure was intended as a blueprint for cover-ups. The man in charge of enforcing it for 20 years was Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the Pope . In 2001 he created the successor to the decree. In spirit it was the same, overarching secrecy with a threat of excommunication. He sent a copy to every Bishop in the world. But now he ordered that the Vatican must have what it calls ‘exclusive competence’. In other words, all child abuse allegations must go exclusively to ROME. It is all controlled by the Vatican, and at the top of the Vatican is the Pope. So Joseph Ratzinger was at the middle of this for most of the years the Crimen was enforced and hee created the successor to the Crimen
The Vatican approved a legion of Enforcers of Crimen Sollicitationis. When a priest was accused of sexual abuse, the abuser was slipped quietly away, and an appointed enforcer of Crimen Sollicitationis was moved in. That is really the ultimate definition of success for the church, when it comes to a case of sexual abuse of a minor, that no one ever finds out about it, that it gets shut down, that it’s kept quiet. If a pay off is needed, or if some kind of a settlement is needed, it’s done. There is no policy to help the victims, there is absolutely no policy to help those who are trying to help the victims, and there is an unwritten policy to lie about the existence of the problem. Then, as far as the perpetrators, the priests, when they’re discovered, the systemic response has been not to investigate and prosecute, but to move them. To move them from one place to another in a secret way, and not reveal why they’re being moved. There is total disregard for the victims, total disregard for the fact that you are going have a whole new crop of victims in the next place -sending priests, who they know have abused children in the past, to new parishes and new communities, and more abuse happens. This is all over the world, the same pattern and practice exists no matter what country you go to.
The Catholic Church is guilty of engaging in a clear crime against humanity: the organized sexual exploitation of children. Murder, torture and child rape are not new to the Roman Catholic church, nor will these obscenities stop, since the church is above the law and accountable only to itself. And yet, for all its worldly power, the Vatican is tottering under the impact of the recent media coverage not only of the proof of Vatican complicity but obvious attemps to lie and avoid accountability.
Jesus had a simple remedy for child abusers, if you believe the Bible:
“It would be better if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, rather than that he should harm one of these little ones.” (Luke 17:2)
The solution to all this evil:
1. Tax the churches: Revoke the charitable tax-exempt status of the Roman Catholic Church, nationalize all church property and land, audit and assess all payments owed by these churches to the people and indigenous nations since their inception, and return all lands and effects stolen by these churches from native people.
2. Revoke the legal charters and legislation governing the Roman Catholic, and thereby end their official, legal status.
3. End diplomatic recognition of the Vatican and expel the Papal Nuncio.
4. Separate church and state: no funding for religious schools or churches, no religious oaths or functions connected to the state, no state protection for clergy or churches (ie, revoke sections 176 and 296 of the Criminal Code of Canada).
5. Establish a public, international inquiry into crimes of these churches against all innocent childrenof all ethnic backgroundsespecially native people, including in Indian residential schools, with the power to subpoena, try and jail offenders.
6. Refuse to Cooperate with Genocidal Institutions -Boycott the Catholic Church
7. Refuse to attend their services or rent their facilities, or if you do attend, withhold from them all donations, tithings and bequests.
8.Hold protests, memorial vigils and civil disobedience actions at these churches
9.Publicly identify and perform citizens’ arrests on those priests responsible for these crimes
Thank you Kevin Annett For your research on the Genocidal practices of the Catholic Church and excuse me for taking liberties with your information.
