The Catholic Church Is At It Again!!!!!

As you all know by now, I don't like the Catholic Church. I never have. I never will. So, it doesn't come as any shock to me that a member of the Catholic Church would have the audacity to compare the criticism and outrage over its child sex abuse scandal to the horror of the Holocaust.

The Pope's personal preacher made the comparison, and actually tried to attribute those comments to a Jewish friend. I'm not going to debate whether or not a Jewish friend made those comments. The point is, the preacher repeated those comments without disputing the ridiculous comparisons.

Meanwhile, the Pope sat there while these comments were being made and said nothing. Now, the Vatican is trying to "distance itself" from these comments. Don't you think it's a little too late for that? The time to distance the Pope from these comments was when they were being made, not hours later. He could have stood up and denounced it but he didn't. Instead, he chose to sit there in silence and say nothing. Silence and inaction is apparently his way of dealing with things.

The reality of the situation is that the Catholic Church knew about the countless cases of physical and sexual abuse of children at the hands of its priests and nuns all over the world. Yet they did nothing to stop it. Instead, they covered it up. They sent these priests to other parishes where they continued to abuse children. Or they just turned a blind eye to the situation.
Now they want to declare themselves victims of some evil plot by outsiders to undermine and destroy the Catholic Church with their "gossip".

This is not GOSSIP Mr. Ratzinger. This is REALITY!! The reality of the situation is that Catholic priests and nuns all over the world have abused children, and the Catholic Church has done everything in its power to cover that up.

I don't know of a single organization that is allowed to investigate itself over allegations of any kind, let alone allegations of physical and sexual abuse of children by members of that organization. Nor do I know of a single organization that isn't required to report these allegations to the proper legal authorities for investigation.

These victims aren't gossiping. They aren't trying to undermine and destroy the Catholic Church. They're seeking JUSTICE for themselves and others. They are seeking to expose this horrific evil that was perpetrated upon them through no fault of their own.

For years many of them were forced to remain silent. I believe that their stories deserve to be told to the entire world because it's long overdue. The world needs to hear the truth instead of allowing the guilty to hide behind their robes and God.

The real VICTIMS deserve far more, but at the very least they deserve to have the truth be told!!
