Vatican Pledges to Fight Pedophilia - Why Don't I Believe This?

The Washington Post has a stroy in which the Vatican is quoted as saying "it would lead the fight against pedohilia (

VATICAN CITY -- The Vatican said Tuesday it would lead the fight against pedophilia, but said the problem was not limited to the Catholic Church and that other institutions should take responsibility. Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi spoke to Vatican Radio after the Los Angeles archdiocese reached a $660 million settlement with more than 500 alleged victims of clergy sex abuse, the largest-ever U.S. payout. Lombardi said the agreement "closed a painful page" and allowed the church to focus on creating a secure environment for young Catholics.
If the Vatican wanted to be taken seriously on this issue, both Benedict and his predecessor, John Paul II have had ample opportunity to show they were serious by requiring the mass resignation of every bishop and cardinal involved in the cover ups. In the USA, the Dallas Morning News several years ago estimated that roughly 2/3 of the U. S. bishops had particiapted at some level in cover up activities. See: What did John Paul II or now Benedict do to clean house? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Until careers are ended and senior people removed from office, the Vatician's promises are merely, disingenuous lip service.

The Fifth Estate on CBC up here did quite the series on pedophile priests in the Catholic church in Canada. Particularly in London, Ontario, there seemed to be a large cluster of them. Rather then let them stand for criminal prosecution, the church transferred the lot of them to Rome where they have been kept in hiding in the Vatican or other city-state buildings. Needless to say the Crown Prosecutors are beyond PISSED!

So will the Catholics ever combat pedophile priests? Not in this lifetime or the next one. As long as the cash keeps rolling in, they will not lift a finger, and will continue to warehouse them at the Vatican when the authorities get too close for comfort.

I just put up a new post tonight that may make your blood boil too.

For more than 26 years, Opus Dei was the only go-between between Pope John Paul II and the outside world --- and they did NOTHING to bring justice and healing to the victims of his John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army who surpass the Swiss Guard Army of the Vatican in numbers. There are about 500 Swiss Guards maximum and there are 500 cases of priest pedophilia with a $666 million prce tag in Los Angeles as of today. In America there are more than 5,000 pedophile priests, 10 times more than the Swiss Guards.

Compare the CRIMES and their VICTIMS in America

Victims - Attackers - Responsible Leader

Pearl Harbor - 3,000 victims - 170 planes - Admiral Yamamoto

WTC & 9/11 attacks - 5,000 victims - 19 Muslims - Osama bin Laden

USA Priest Pedophilia - 12,000 victims - 5,148 priests - John Paul II & Josemaria Escriba
