Wow.

Meanwhile, since the cardinal’s remarks, more child abuse cases are pouring in. The Catholic Church is now dealing with countless child abuse cases where Priests preyed upon children.

Never forget, the Vatican is a mafia that will hurt your children.

This is also where they burn the last remaining shreds of youth and innocence stolen from the children that they rape.

Pure evil

Taoiseach Enda Kenny today told the Dáil the Cloyne report exposed an attempt by the Holy See to frustrate the inquiry into clerical sex abuse.

Addressing the House, Mr Kenny said: “The rape and torture of children were downplayed or ‘managed’ to uphold instead, the primacy of the institution, its power, standing and ‘reputation’.

"Far from listening to evidence of humiliation and betrayal with St Benedict’s “ear of the heart” … the Vatican’s reaction was to parse and analyse it with the gimlet eye of a canon lawyer… . This calculated, withering position being the polar opposite of the radicalism, humility and compassion upon which the Roman Church was founded."

"The revelations of the Cloyne report have brought the Government, Irish Catholics and the Vatican to an unprecedented juncture," the Taoiseach said.

"It’s fair to say that after the Ryan and Murphy reports Ireland is, perhaps, unshockable when it comes to the abuse of children. But Cloyne has proved to be of a different order.

"Because for the first time in Ireland, a report into child sexual-abuse exposes an attempt by the Holy See, to frustrate an inquiry in a sovereign, democratic republic … as little as three years ago, not three decades ago. And in doing so, the Cloyne Report excavates the dysfunction, disconnection, elitism … the narcissism … that dominate the culture of the Vatican to this day."

Mr Kenny said the Cloyne report told “a tale of a frankly brazen disregard for protecting children”. He said although the report had shown the need for the Vatican “to get its house in order”, it also revealed how the State had failed victims too.

The latest sex-abuse case to rock the Catholic Church is unfolding in the archdiocese of an influential Italian Cardinal who has been working with Pope Benedict XVI on reforms to respond to prior scandals of pedophile priests.

Father Riccardo Seppia, a 51-year-old parish priest in the village of Sastri Ponente, near Genoa, was arrested last Friday, May 13, on pedophilia and drug charges. Investigators say that in tapped mobile-phone conversations, Seppia asked a Moroccan drug dealer to arrange sexual encounters with young and vulnerable boys. “I do not want 16-year-old boys but younger. Fourteen-year-olds are O.K. Look for needy boys who have family issues.”

Pope’s Pedophilia Adviser Arrested For Pedophilia

Sadly, this shit doesn’t even shock me any more.

kneeling should not be a problem for Father.

The pope said he was deeply disappointed to learn that the number of children sexually abused by priests was almost 10 times beyond the allowable limit clearly outlined in church doctrine. Admitting for the first time in public that the overindulgent touching of “tender, tender young flesh” had become a full-blown crisis, the Holy Father vowed to implement new reforms to bring the pedophilia rate back down to five children per 1,000 clergy.

Embezzlement, sexual assault, child porn, a drunk priest punches a mourner at a funeral, and more… Joe. My. God.

The depressing part about this all-too-regular feature over at Joe’s place is the staggering amount of material he has to work with. It’s enough to make Mario Puzo proud.

The Devil in the details.

Sullivan:

According to the Star,

The church’s canonical court in 1997 found “there is almost a satanic quality in (Teta’s) mode of acting toward young men and boys.” The court found that Teta’s “insidious ‘rape’ of so many young men in his capacity as a priest” warranted his immediate removal from the priesthood.

And yet despite Moreno’s personal appeal, it took Ratzinger’s CDF another seven years to defrock this priest. He was still being paid the equivalent of administrative leave until 2004 - fourteen years after his “insidious rapes” were first reported. During those fourteen years, parishioners paid the priest about $1,400 a month. The diocese also paid for Teta’s canon lawyer.

I mean, come on. This makes Michael Steele look benign. Stay tuned, there will be more. Much more. Keep your children away from the priesthood. They’re not all child molesters, but it is now abundantly clear that there is no effective way to weed them from the flock. You’d be safer with a dozen registered sex offenders living next to your playground. At least you would know who they were.

This grisly little man is not above or outside the law. He is the titular head of a small state. We know more and more of the names of the children who were victims and of the pederasts who were his pets. This is a crime under any law (as well as a sin), and crime demands not sickly private ceremonies of “repentance,” or faux compensation by means of church-financed payoffs, but justice and punishment. The secular authorities have been feeble for too long but now some lawyers and prosecutors are starting to bestir themselves. I know some serious men of law who are discussing what to do if Benedict tries to make his proposed visit to Britain in the fall. It’s enough. There has to be a reckoning, and it should start now.

How any organization this foul and corrupt continues to exist with impunity is beyond me. And don’t even get me started on the fact that they want you to believe that it’s homosexuality that represents this kind of threat to children. 

I don’t even believe in pure evil, but this gets about as close as it comes to it.
