Pope John XXIII gave out a secret directive, Crimen Solicitanius, to all the bishops of the world decreeing that if anybody was interfered with by the priest in the confessional and didn’t keep it secret from the legal authorities they were excommunicated. Despite this evil, the pope was beatified by the manipulative John Paul II. John XXIII is now a saint thanks to Pope Francis.

John Paul II and Cardinal Ratzinger now Benedict XVI had all the bishops of the world informed by letter that allegations of child-abuse must be made to the Vatican and not the police. This is the letter received by the Irish bishops and signed by Archbishop Luciano Storero the papal nuncio and thus who would be the voice of the pope.



Catholic aid organisations such as Caritas do a lot of good work. The service many Catholics provide to society and to the downtrodden has led to an extreme reluctance in the UN and Human Rights Watch to attack the Catholic record on human rights. The Church has covered up large scale clerical sexual abuse. Priests who the Church has found guilty have been shielded from the police and the Church never reported their crimes to the civil authorities. They were given prayer and penance as their punishment as prescribed under canon law. This is no punishment at all for the Church claims it is a privilege to pray and to do penance. An entity that issues such non-punishments is really condoning the crimes. Condoning the crimes is encouraging them.

I don’t believe in the supernatural. So when I have nightmare or imagine in the middle of the night that there is a dangerous ghost in the bedroom with me I get over it. My unbelief helps me. Unbelief for many is as good as faith is supposed to be. If a form of faith with some alarming content such as Hell is given to children is that not manipulation? Yes when there are alternatives. Disrespect for a child in any form is necessary before child abuse can happen.

Jesus told Peter that if a brother sins against him loads of times a day he must forgive him as many times (Matthew 19:21-22). This teaching accuses abuse victims who do not forgive of being evil. It also allows bishops to forgive priests who abuse and as proof that the past is the past to let the priests continue to have access to children.

Jesus said that if you do not forgive, God will not forgive you any of your sins (Matthew 6:15). Some priests will tell victims that if they can’t forgive God will make an exception for them. But if God calls us all to be saints as the Church says then the only thing that is stopping us is our lack of cooperation and our pretending that we are too weak to do it.

The Catholic Church demeans its flock by having it worship bread.

Pope Benedict XVI sent a letter to the Catholics of Ireland in 2010 regarding child sexual abuse by priests and religious. The letter blamed lack of faith for their antics.

But with a faith that says that we should forgive a man seventy times seven a day, we can’t believe that. In fact, strong faith would be an encouragement to commit sexual abuse. That obligates the victim to forgive the clerical sexual abuser and he or she is doing evil and hurting herself or himself if this is not done. By implication, Christian teaching blames the victim for most of or all of the trauma that he or she experiences. The Church believes that if you lead a person into sin that is worse than abusing them against their will. Those who believe that will not have much sympathy for abuse victims. The Church however has to fake this sympathy for it would look bad if its true feelings were made obvious.

The Pope is insincere. He never reprimanded priests who knew what their paedophile colleagues were up to for doing absolutely nothing. Absolutely nothing means that they didn’t reprimand those priests, they didn’t threaten to turn them in unless they stopped, they didn’t ask them to turn themselves in and they didn’t report those priests to the bishops. The clerical culture where clerics are separated from normal people and form a clique of their own enabled the cover-ups to happen. What comes out about clerical sex abuse no matter how great or how large the scale, will always be the tip of a colossal iceberg. The pope wants the clerical culture to continue and even to retreat back in time to the days before Vatican II. In effect, he wants the cover-ups to be as good now as they were then.

There is no excommunication for abusing a child. There is for denying the Holy Trinity or that Mary was always a virgin. This faith is more interested in manipulating minds than in caring for people and uses the care of people as a means to warping their reason and emotions.

RATZINGER'S De delictis gravioribus,

De delictis gravioribus, the letter which was sent by Ratzinger in 2001 is more shocking than Crimen.

Its subject is, "A delict against morals, namely: the delict committed by a cleric against the Sixth Commandment of the Decalogue with a minor below the age of 18 years."

It required that:

This letter was sent to and intended for all bishops. It ordered them to adhere to the earlier regulations such as those in Crimen.

The central point in it is contained in the phrase "cases of this kind are subject to the pontifical secret."

This is not about the proceedings or the findings. It refers to the case - the whole case from start to finish. De delictus is perfectly clear that it shows a conspiracy to protect clerical sexual abusers and to stop the police from hearing about them.

Thomas Doyle stated, "According to the document, [crimen] accusers and witnesses are bound by the secrecy obligation during and after the process but certainly not prior to the initiation of the process.

Not all agree and the fact remains it was taken for granted by the document that the first people approached by the victims were church officials. The document knew from the culture of that time there was going to be no other way it was going to be.

Nobody can say that of De delictus - it certainly does know there is now a culture where crimes against children by priests may be reported to the police and it tries to get that stamped out. However it limits itself to saying cases that from the point where a child becomes an adult there is a statute of limitation of a decade. Part of that was the wish to protect the sainted Father Maciel who founded the Legionaries of Christ who was a prolific abuser of vulnerable young men to say the least.

There were no documents issued in relation to helping the child! There was no compassion.

People believe in religion but it is only a belief. When a religion crosses a line, it is time to go. Belief never comes before the suffering of a child or any person. The Church is a community of faith which means responsibility in some sense is shared between all members. The crimes of the Church reflect on the clergy most of all.
