The utter lies and batshitery that emanate from the Vatican and the Nazi Pope, Benedict XVI never cease to amaze me. In addressing the sex abuse to Irish Catholics - the Church in Ireland is in a veritable free fall - Benedict said that the cause of the sex abuse was a mystery. Actually, it's no mystery at all and the abuse of children and youths that occurred with an almost "droit de seigneur" attitude are the result of the deliberate policies of secrecy and denial implemented by and then perpetuated by Benedict XVI's and his predecessors. And then there's the Vatican's obsession with sex and sexuality as things that are sinful and filthy. The resulst of these policies and distorted views on sexuality left many tens of thousands of children and youths as hapless prey for predator priests. Irish Central has highlights from the drivel put forth by Benedict XVI as to the "Mystery" that caused the sex abuse of children and youths:
Pope Benedict has described clerical sex abuse as a mystery in an address to Irish Catholics. The Vatican leader expressed his views via a broadcast at the Mass to close the Eucharistic Congress in Dublin. Almost 80,000 mass goers at Croke Park on Sunday heard the Papal address.
Irish President Michael D Higgins and Prime Minister Enda Kenny were among the crowd at the final event of the 50th International Eucharistic Congress. They heard the Pope say: “It is a mystery the fact that people who regularly received the Lord’s body and confessed their sins in the sacrament of Penance could abuse children.”
He added: “Evidently, their Christianity was no longer nourished by joyful encounter with Jesus Christ: it had become merely a matter of habit.”
