Why is the head of the world’s largest cult not in prison…you know, the Pope? I’m not sure why the “current” Catholic sex scandal is making such news. It has been known and documented for years that Ratzinger was the author of the Catholic policy to move child molesters rather than prosecute them. The scope of the Catholic child raping may be larger then originally thought but Ratzinger was always known to be the man in charge of the cover up. This has never been in question.
Now, more to the point. Why is the Pope not being prosecuted for his support (by willful inaction)Â of child rape and torture?
Imagine a school where young children were being raped. Now imagine the Superintendent of that particular school district KNEW that one of his teachers was raping children and that his solutionÂ to the problem was to transfer that school teacher to another school within the district. Now, Â let’s pretend that this teacher had raped 50 children. Forgetting any legal culpability, would their be any moral culpability on the part of the Superintendent? You’re damn right there would be.Â Last but not least, pretend this happened at your child’s school and that your child was one of the 50 children raped!
This hypothetical situation is tame when compared to the real Catholic sex scandals. The real scandal involvesÂ Â (I’m being WAY conservative) priests and thousands of children worldwide! It has become virtually institutionalized within the Catholic priesthood.
This one goes out to all of you Catholics out there. Â How could you voluntarily continue to be part of an organization that would allow this manÂ to act as it’s moral authority? If you really don’t have an answer to that question just ask yourself this. What would Jesus do?
