The Vatican Has Issued a Statement On the Pennsylvania Report

Earlier this afternoon the Vatican released a statement in response to the Pennsylvania sex abuse report:

“Regarding the report made public in Pennsylvania this week, there are two words that can express the feelings faced with these horrible crimes: shame and sorrow.

 

The Holy See treats with great seriousness the work of the Investigating Grand Jury of Pennsylvania and the lengthy Interim Report it has produced. The Holy See condemns unequivocally the sexual abuse of minors.

 

The abuses described in the report are criminal and morally reprehensible. Those acts were betrayals of trust that robbed survivors of their dignity and their faith. The Church must learn hard lessons from its past, and there should be accountability for both abusers and those who permitted abuse to occur.

 

Most of the discussion in the report concerns abuses before the early 2000s. By finding almost no cases after 2002, the Grand Jury’s conclusions are consistent with previous studies showing that Catholic Church reforms in the United States drastically reduced the incidence of clergy child abuse. The Holy See encourages continued reform and vigilance at all levels of the Catholic Church, to help ensure the protection of minors and vulnerable adults from harm. The Holy See also wants to underscore the need to comply with the civil law, including mandatory child abuse reporting requirements.

 

The Holy Father understands well how much these crimes can shake the faith and the spirit of believers and reiterates the call to make every effort to create a safe environment for minors and vulnerable adults in the Church and in all of society.

 

Victims should know that the Pope is on their side. Those who have suffered are his priority, and the Church wants to listen to them to root out this tragic horror that destroys the lives of the innocent.”

It is appalling that it took the Vatican two full days before addressing this report. It is also sickening that the attitude is essentially “hey, there haven’t been many new cases since 2002, so let’s not dig any deeper!”

We also see from this statement that the Pope is on the side of victims. However, Pope Francis has made people like Cardinal Wuerl his go to men and has even befriended many child abusers himself. How he can say that he is on the side of victims yet be buddy-buddy with these evil men is yet another example of the hypocrisy Pope Francis continues to display.

The problem is a simple problem. We must expunge all homosexuals from the priesthood and prevent them from ever becoming priests in the first place. The vast majority of child molestation is with boys or young men. Heterosexuals do not engage in that type of behavior, only homosexuals do. We must also go a step further, and any member of the clergy who helped give cover should also be removed from the priesthood. All guilty parties should do time and as Pope St. Pius V said should be handed over to the authorities to be put to death.

Finally, this rot is core to the entirety of the Novus Ordo “religion” if you will. Novus Ordo Catholicism (henceforth Novus Ordoism) requires several mentalities that allow child abusers to prosper. First, we must always show mercy to an individual, no matter how evil they or their actions are. Second, we can never put to death any individual, no matter how guilty they are of their evil actions. Third, homosexuals are not the reason for molestation of boys.

What we are witnessing in Pennsylvania we witnessed in Massachusetts back in the early 2000s. How much more abuse was committed and covered up by the clergy across the entire country?

This is disgusting and should make every single Catholic want to flip tables (and then some).

Ultimately, if we want this to end, we must embrace the traditions of our faith and reject the novelties of Novus Ordoism. We must embrace our doctrines that say that these actions are evil and should be punished by severe fasting and in some cases death. Once we return to Jesus Christ and worship as He desires us to, only then will the rot disappear.

The Bishops Knew and Are Very Sad You Found Out

There is nothing more sickening, disgusting, blood-boiling, rage inducing than the news coming out of Pennsylvania this week.

More than 300 priests were found to have been involved in molesting children. Even worse? Bishops and Cardinals knew about it and did nothing. Well, that’s not entirely true because they did do something.

They covered it up.

The investigation discovered that Cardinal Wuerl, who has an “upstanding reputation for his zero tolerance take on sex abuse,” paid a priest who was going to report a list of known sex abusers within the priesthood to not report it. The report details this as well.

Another case found that a priest had raped a young girl, the girl became pregnant, and the priest took and paid for her to have an abortion. When the priest’s bishop found out, he wrote a letter of condolence…to the priest.

These are just a couple of cases found within the 800+ page document. Cardinal Wuerl is mentioned over 200 times. That’s quite the damning ratio.

The response from bishops, dioceses, and even the Vatican has been even more appalling. Very few have come out and condemned this behavior and those that have don’t come to realize the problem. There are few calls for these disgusting men to be defrocked, removed from the priesthood, and sent to prison where they can rot the rest of their miserable lives away from more potential victims. Unfortunately many mention how sad they are and ashamed…that you found out.

The Vatican Press Office has issued a “no comment” on the entire matter.

It’s undeniable that this rot is affecting the vast majority of the priesthood and hierarchy within the Church. It is time for a purge, even if that means that there won’t be that many priests left to administer the sacraments. The time for wrist-slapping is over.

Every single one of the clergy who molested or covered up molestation should be removed from ministry and thrown in prison.

Funny timing for Pope Francis to say that the death penalty is “inadmissible,” no?

UPDATE (August 16, 2018 10:42pm):
