Vatican Abuse Scandal Spreads To Oakland

The simple answer is no.

Pope Benedict XVI has been waging a full scale war against pedephiles in the Church since the day he took office.

The Oakland case is weak. The MSM should be ashamed of themselves for sensationalizing such a lame story.

Ratzinger only held off on defrocking the priest until all of the facts were in. Standard practice, innocent until proven guilty.

What's really a shock is that the priest was only charged with a misdomenor for what he did.

I understand the feeling of outrage at the prosecutor and wondering why no one else seems to be outraged. My guess as to the possible reasons why it was a misdemeanor only is that it could have been that in the interviews with the priest he might have only been willing to admit to an offense or two, but not the worst ones and the prosecutor realized that they could get him to plead out to some charges and at least get him in the records as a sex offender or take it to trial and he gets a sympathetic jury who finds him not guilty, he walks away with nothing, no punishment at all and no record on the books as an offender.

This is what happened in my case at least. I was abused very badly for years by a pastor who was incredibly well liked in the community and he refused to admit to anything but fondling, so in order for him to not walk completely free, the states attorney's office got him to plead and he spent a year in jail. They were afraid that taking him to trial could have backfired due to his position in the community and his popularity and they didn't want to take any chances. At least, that is how they explained it to me.

It doesn't mean that I wasn't outraged at the leniency just that I didn't get a say in the matter of how it was to be handled.

Whether the catholic church, and the pope in particular, is a conspirator in covering it up, I don't know. I believe yes, but I don't actually know.

The Roman Catholic Church has a long and shameful history of covering up abuse of all types by its adherents.

Whether the present Pope does, or really is trying to atone, I do not know.

I believe that Vatican City is wealthy beyond belief, at cost to others, and that it is totally corrupt.

And before everyone labels me a Roman Catholic basher, I would like to say what I have previously stated on many occasions - I believe that all churches are corrupt, even though a lot of the people involved with churches are innocent and well intended.

IMO yes.

Cover it up in ANY WAY - you're nothing if not a co-conspirator to pedophilia.

Considering the Pope is the last voice and responsibility figurehead between God and Man (Catholics) then it compounds the evil in his act by uncountable multiples.

I congratulate you on your response and I agree completely.

I would like to just add one more thing: The Beast in Revelation is a just a MAN and well...the Pope is a MAN.

How many people worship the image of the Pontiff?

The Commandments state worship the Lord God and serve him only - but there is no image of God = and that means RESPECT THE LAW.

How hard is it? Though shalt not have graven images! symbols! and what does the Catholic Church have? Numerous images and symbols...

The Church is not governed by God, but by a mere man who covers up abuse.

I would like to thank you for your support - and yes, I believe that so-called Christianity is far removed from Christ Himself. He is probably readying himself for the end of the world.

Mankind has become too corrupt to believe.
