    Top cardinal admits the Catholic Church destroyed files to hide sex abuse

    It's high time this cancerous organisation lost all protections and had its leadership locked up. Having church beanos isn't going to get these bastards in jail.


    The Roman Catholic Church took pains to deliberately hide the extent of its global sex abuse crisis, going as far as destroying documents and failing to compile records that could be used to prosecute perpetrators, a top cardinal admitted this week.

    At an unprecedented Vatican summit designed to tackle the church’s lingering child sex abuse scandal, German Cardinal Reinhard Marx shed light on the institution’s many failures to tamp down on the problem, telling the gathering of more than 190 bishops from around the globe that “the rights of victims were effectively trampled underfoot.” The National Catholic Reporter has more:

    ”Files that could have documented the terrible deeds and named those responsible were destroyed, or not even created,” said Marx, beginning a list of a number of practices that survivors have documented for years but church officials have long kept under secret.
    ”Instead of the perpetrators, the victims were regulated and silence imposed on them,” the cardinal continued. “The stipulated procedures and processes for the prosecution of offenses were deliberately not complied with, but instead canceled or overridden.”

    The Catholic Church is in the midst of a reckoning over its wide-scale child abuse allegations that span the globe and date back decades.

    Thousands of child victims have come forward describing their abuse, while hundreds of priests have been reprimanded by the church as a direct result. But only recently has the shoe begun to drop for the highest-ranking officials, including those who are either accused themselves of sexually assaulting young children, or allowed the abuse to continue under their watch.


    Just last week the
    Vatican defrocked Theodore McCarrick, an ex-cardinal and the former archbishop of Washington, who was accused of abusing at least three minors and harassing adult seminarians. It’s likely the first time that a cardinal has been expelled from the priesthood specifically because of sexual abuse, but comes too late for McCarrick’s victims to pursue criminal charges against their alleged abuser.


    Pope Francis, who has had a
    mixed record on addressing the church’s pedophilia problem, convened the four-day summit in a landmark effort to curb the widespread and systemic failures that turned the issue into a global crisis. In his opening remarks on Thursday, Francis condemned the “scourge” of sexual abuse and said it was up to church leaders to “confront this evil afflicting the Church and humanity.”


    But for years, it’s been others who’ve claimed the spotlight calling for accountability and reform — a trend that continued at the pope’s conference this weekend.

    Why do I have a niggling feeling he's doing this not to put a stop to the actual crimes but to curb the bad publicity?

    what's the point of being a priest, if you can't abuse little children?

    Ya gota call it eh,

    Faggotry is an exceptionally fooked up way to be. Faggots hide behind being a priest and looking at little boys in Church or prancing in public with the arse cut out of leather pants in Gay Parades.

    Na, go the lovely Bints with front bums i say.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    The Church has proved it is unable and in many cases unwilling to rid itself of these creatures and must be subjected to a lot more oversight from the state. Bishops and other priests who have covered up these crimes are guilty of complicity and must be defrocked and jailed. This includes desanctifying the confessional and closing some institutions if neccessary, including deregistration, although that would take a brave politician. Unfortunately those two words rarely go together.

    Yep, those faggots are always problematic. Case in point: clergy worldwide.

    The paradox makes libby homers' heads explode. On one hand, they love taking swipes at religion, on the other hand, religious leader are as bent as a dog's hind leg, just like them.

    I almost totally agree. I disagree about "unable". It is able, just unwilling.
