1963 letter indicates former pope knew of abuse



The following excerpt from the AP article:


The head of a Roman Catholic order that specialized in the treatment of pedophile priests visited with then-Pope Paul VI nearly 50 years ago and followed up with a letter recommending the removal of pedophile priests from ministry, according to a copy of the letter obtained by The Associated Press on Wednesday.


And:


Yet the problem was very well-known to Rome well before the 1960s. The 1917 code of canon law criminalized sexual abuse of minors. Five years later, the Vatican penned a document outlining detailed procedures for handling such cases. In 1962, that document was updated and has been used in many of the lawsuits by victims against U.S. diocese and the Vatican itself.

You might have noticed Catholic League President Bill Donohue making the talk show rounds on the latest allegations against the Church and the current Pope. Donohue's defense of the then Cardinal Ratzinger is that he was never informed of the case of the Wisconsin priest. My follow up question for Mr. Donohue and the Pope would be: Who was informed? This was ongoing prior to Ratzinger but to think it eluded him is naive at best when seen in the light of this latest evidence. This was an infection of the Church for likely hundreds of years. Cardinal Ratzinger was not aware of this particular crime might stem from the abundance of crimes. We have seen his dance card was already full of German abuse cases during that time. One could imagine he would not remember each individual case. So much abuse, so little time.

Instead of challenging former victims of the abuse it is high time Mr. Donohue starts challenging the severely flawed, evil men and institution he serves. That would mean admitting he has been wrong. That would be admirable but I doubt we will see it from Donohue, the Pope's attack dog.

The following from the Catholic League site:


What is the Catholic League?

The Catholic League is the nation's largest Catholic civil rights organization. Founded in 1973 by the late Father Virgil C. Blum, S.J., the Catholic League defends the right of Catholics – lay and clergy alike – to participate in American public life without defamation or discrimination.


Time to start defending those lay Catholics Mr. Donohue and let the clergy fend for themselves.

Donohue will make the cable talk show rounds again. He's a witless pawn, trapped by his own guilt into fronting for these evil creeps.

That these henious details are being leaked at this time is all part of a larger plan. The Catholic Church is being undermined by their NWO controllers. They consider it is time to push for their "One World Religion" and this will coincide with their "New World Order". They will want all to place their faith in the secular humanism of a socialist government. They will be your conscience. They will control who receives charity in the form of government entitlements. They will offer many of their own as scapegoats.

This Pope will likely be among those sacrificed. He is an old man and will likely die before any sentence will be carried out. He knows this, this is the destiny he has chosen. He thinks he is sacrificing himself for the greater good. A most "Christian" act from a non-Christian man. TPTB will encourage hatred toward him as the main culprit in the child abuse and as the figurehead of people of blind faith.

Keep in mind the Church hierarchy knew of his past and still elected him as Pope. They are all in on this. He and they know he is not undermining himself, he is undermining the faithful. This has likely been planned for centuries. The possibility has been there for decades as we clearly see. The time is coming for the Church to self-destruct. This will be the end of Christianity as the other sects were all based initially on and in oppostion to the Roman Catholic Church. They are pulling the security blanket from their slaves. Just my opinion.
