The Pope, Priests, And Those Damn Sexy Altar Boys

9 04 2010

I’ve held off commenting on the Pope and the Catholic child molestation story only because it was more interesting to watch the rest of the world spin in a tizzy of concern and outrage while still completely missing the point. It’s truly fascinating to watch most everyone from pundit and commentator to politician and parishioner wonder if the Pope should take any responsibility for the crimes of his church or the acts protected and promoted on his watch as bishop.

Indeed, some rightly point out that the institutional molestation and rape of thousands of children worldwide should be prosecuted and that everyone within the church who protected the criminals who committed these atrocities should be held accountable as accomplices to the crimes. Obviously. Oh if only the Catholic church would recognize the authority of US justice system and hand over the supporting documents in full cooperation with court subpoenas.

But most of the media somehow continues to miss the elephant with the long robes and funny hat right in front of them pissing in the the holy water.

So I ask anyone in the media who might come across this humble blog, in light of these horrible acts inflicted against the most defenseless among us, why do we give preferential treatment to any organization purely because they make unprovable claims of divine sanction?

If any other corporation or organization in the US had promoted and protected systematic child rape the police would not have hesitated to raid them in an effort to shut them down as soon as possible, to seize evidence for trials, to jail everyone involved, and to secure assets to be distributed to the victims.

Of course the Vatican is no mere corporation but is in fact a sovereign entity recognized by international law. It is reasonable however to expect that the United states would levy severe sanctions and even attack and invade any foreign nation operating bases in the US where the systematic rape of US children is being committed. The assertion that those bases are recruiting new members and distributing unverifiable propaganda would of course be a completely irrelevant and absurd defense.

So to put it more succinctly, this Pope and the Catholic church are directly responsible for the molestation and rape of more US children than Al Qaeda, the Taliban, and Hitler combined.  Why haven’t people and the media been demanding that the police and the US government take stronger actions against this criminal organization that has for decades been committing crimes against humanity and protecting those who committed them?

Anyone?

Look at Bill Donohue and his mentality. Until he dies and until all the other assholes with mindsets just like his die too, nothing will change. Sadly the world is filled with Bill Donohues.

Last I checked neither Bill Donohue nor the Pope were in control of the police and Department of Justice…well at least not officially anyhow.

Yeah, it’s frustrating. I suspect a lot of cops and judges have the disease known as Catholicism. The Catholic influence is very pervasive…kind of like herpes.

As if one needed more evidence, here is a video with more evidence that this Pope not only knew about the abuse but actively delayed acting on the information.

Hitchens said something along these lines recently. I think I remember you saying you don’t care for him but as far as brains go, good company to be in.

Impeach the mutherfucking Pope.

Outside of Iraq I do agree with Hitchens…but he’s still annoying. I could be in far worse company to be sure. 🙂

What I seriously don’t understand is that people simply aren’t leaving the church in droves. Why are parents setting their own children up to be potentially molested? What the hell is wrong with these people? I wouldn’t allow my child to be part of an organization that has been proven over and over again to protect pedophiles at all costs. There is a certain level of insanity that exists in people who would choose to put their children within harms way.

You make an excellent point with this blog. No other organization would ever get away with the systematic abuse that exists within the Catholic church. It’s insane.

I agree with you but I also don’t understand why anyone (with kids or otherwise) would want to remain affiliated with such a criminal organization? The Catholics are starting to deserve the same level of respect as members of the Westboro Baptist Church (even though those inbreds are on a full Michele Bachmann dose of batshit crazy).

Shit, even members of the Klan have the decency to be embarrassed enough to leave their robes at home and not generally brag to the population about their affiliation.

Richard Dawkins planning to have Pope Benedict arrested over ‘crimes against humanity’

This is ultra interesting. 😀

Wow, I didn’t know about that one. I guess the only way I disagree with Dawkins and Hitchens is to suggest that they aren’t going far enough by only arresting the Pope…but I must agree it is a good start.

Since the pope (small pp’s in pope) is the head of a criminal organization, why is everyone so surprised that he won’t do the right thing or tell truth on this matter. Since 100% of the time he is spreading nonsense based on lies and fairytales, why does everyone expect him to fess up and own up to his responsibilities on this matter. He is after all just remaining true to his nature of being 100% full of shit all of the time. That’s like asking a pick pocket to hold your wallet for a minute while you count your change…oh, damn…you mean he just took my wallet? Why couldn’t he just hold it for me…I was just going to be a minute. Did you really expect the truth from the pope? Who’s the fool?

My point exactly. Let’s get a team of Seals together to secure the Vatican and let the lawyers in to pour over the files and gather evidence.

Along the same lines as crazyliberal’s post, Kevin Annett is doing something similar in Canada for the country’s + church’s crimes against indigenous people: http://www.hiddenfromhistory.org. This partnership has been perfecting denial and cover up for more than a century.
