Most think and believe in recent years hundreds, if not thousands, of individuals have come forward claiming sexual abuse from priests in the Roman Catholic Church. That is valid. However, history for these crimes dates back much further with abuses from the Catholic church.
Numerous “pedophile priests” have been identified. Sadly, rather than defrocking the priests (removing from the priesthood), the Catholic Church has in most instances attempted to cover up the sexual abuse by transferring the offending priest(s) to different parishes or ‘re-locating’ them. In the spectrum of the law, aiding and abetting these crimes, is a crime in itself.
The scandal and attempted cover-up continues to ever expand which reaching the papacy wants you to believe is current but this at The Vatican has been a cover-up for some time and a shared secret.
The Vatican faced blistering criticism from a United Nations committee recently over allegations it protected pedophile priests at the expense of victims in what constituted a worldwide sex abuse scandal.
It now appears with the over surmounting pressure from the UN and sub-committees that given the zero tolerance policy of the Vatican do we hear the Pope taking a stance.
Will we start to see methods to protect our children from sexual abuse? Will there be accountability? Should priests by treated any differently than other criminal offenders and will anyone from the Catholic church be brought to justice for their SINS? Better pray….your child could be next.
