Shot: “1 Jesus left the temple and was walking away when his disciples came up to him to call his attention to its buildings. 2 “Do you see all these things?” he asked. “Truly I tell you, not one stone here will be left on another; every one will be thrown down.” Matthew 24:1-2
Chaser: “So the soldiers, out of the wrath and hatred they bore the Jews, nailed those they caught, one after one way, and another after another, to the crosses, by way of jest, when their multitude was so great, that room was wanting for the crosses, and crosses wanting for the bodies.” Flavius Josephus, “Wars of the Jews”
The Catholic Church, like Jerusalem in the first century AD, has reached a fatal crossroads. It can purge the filth that has lodged within its body, or it can be slaughtered the way the Pharasies and Seducees of Jerusalem were once Titus finally made it over the curtain wall. One of the unremarked tragedies of the twenty-first Century is the extent to which the Roman Catholic Church is now a force for evil, rather than decency. How evil? About 900 sickening pages worth.
We subpoenaed, and reviewed, half a million pages of internal diocesan documents. They contained credible allegations against over three hundred predator priests. Over one thousand child victims were identifiable, from the church’s own records. We believe that the real number – of children whose records were lost, or who were afraid ever to come forward – is in the thousands. Most of the victims were boys; but there were girls too. Some were teens; many were pre-pubescent. Some were manipulated with alcohol or pornography. Some were made to masturbate their assailants, or were groped by them. Some were raped orally, some vaginally, some anally. But all of them were brushed aside, in every part of the state, by church leaders who preferred to protect the abusers and their institution above all As a consequence of the coverup, almost every instance of abuse we found is too old to be prosecuted.
There is one man, one individual, one human being who owns this. We could dicker over whether this is fair, or whether we should point the fickle finger of blame, or a whole bunch of other male bovine scatology. It cuts no ice; it makes no difference. There is one guy who wanted the job so much that he broke with precedent and took the position before his predecessor died. That would be Pope Francis. Like it or not, believe in him or not, this is his problem. Cleaning it up is his job. Show him what he wins, Dom Pardo.
Special agents testified before us that they had identified a series of practices that regularly appeared, in various configurations, in the diocesan files they had analyzed. It’s like a playbook for concealing the truth:
First, make sure to use euphemisms rather than real words to describe the sexual assaults in diocese documents. Never say “rape”; say “inappropriate contact” or “boundary issues.”
Second, don’t conduct genuine investigations with properly trained personnel. Instead, assign fellow clergy members to ask inadequate questions and then make credibility determinations about the colleagues with whom they live and work.
Third, for an appearance of integrity, send priests for “evaluation” at church-run psychiatric treatment centers. Allow these experts to “diagnose” whether the priest was a pedophile, based largely on the priest’s “self -reports,” and regardless of whether the priest had actually engaged in sexual contact with a child.
Fourth, when a priest does have to be removed, don’t say why. Tell his parishioners that he is on “sick leave,” or suffering from “nervous exhaustion.” Or say nothing at all.
Fifth, even if a priest is raping children, keep providing him housing and living expenses, although he may be using these resources to facilitate more sexual assaults.
Sixth, if a predator’s conduct becomes known to the community, don’t remove him from the priesthood to ensure that no more children will be victimized. Instead, transfer him to a new location where no one will know he is a child abuser.
Finally and above all, don’t tell the police.
Most of us are close to giving up on Amerika. If you’re cursed with being born and having to live in Sodom, then you are pretty much going to get sodomized. We expect this sort of thing in The Pornified States of Amerika. We gave the world Kevin Spacey as a love gift. It is what are elite have striven to turn us into for the last fifty years. You just cuck the hell out of any old stick in the mud who doesn’t get with the program. When little boys get told to strip naked and pose as Jesus on the cross for masturbation pornography, you then act shocked! The hypocrisy here is just terrible.
Yet now it appears to not just be Amerika. Chile’s government has asked the Vatican for data on the sexual chicken-hawking occurring in their neck of the woods as well.
Earlier in August, the Episcopal Conference said it was committed to collaborating with civil authorities on accusations of abuse. The scandal has rocked the Church in Chile. In June, the country’s 34 bishops were summoned to Rome by the pope after Vatican investigators produced a 2,300-page report alleging that senior Church officials in Chile had failed to act on abuse claims and in some cases hid them. Pope Francis has accepted resignations by five of those bishops. Chilean prosecutors have said they are investigating 38 cases of sex crimes committed by clergy and lay people against minors and adults. There are 73 people under investigation and 104 victims, most of whom were minors at the time of the abuse.
We are living in an age of terrible moral poverty. We need Him more now than ever. The generation of vipers referenced in the scriptures was bad. We are worse. We have evolved into one of basilisks. The sexual predation of children has become an accepted norm. The sort of thing an up-and-coming elitist expects to see on the list of perqs, or else they won’t be taking the job. It all just makes the Muslim rape gang in Rotherham look like a mature and flourishing religious organization.
So Pope Francis now has a folder on his desk that no sane man would want to read, but he had better read it and take substantial action. Accepting resignations will no longer satisfy basic decency. The only incense that will smell sweet enough to quench the vile stench of moral rot would be napalm. The smell of victory. As terrible as this may seem to Addle-Pope Francis, this is his shot at both redemption and history. It is time for the Pope to preach the message of Girolamo Savonarola with regards to the people who run many of his churches.
Such men are deprived of God’s grace and other special providence, and they are generally the worst men, lacking in understanding and faithless. . . . Above all such men have no true friendship with anyone; they do not confide in anyone. True and joyous friendship is necessary in human affairs and conserves you in virtue; but such men have no good virtue, nor do they contract true friendship. They always hate good men and . . . employ only wicked and evil people. . . . Furthermore, their rule cannot be long and durable because all the people, even if they do not show it, hate their tyranny. A people under a tyrant is like a body of water compressed and held back by force, which, when it finds a little hole to escape, bursts forth impetuously and ruinously. . . . Have a care, therefore, that such men do not take control in your city, and attend to the common good.
So the time has come for Pope Francis to identify, cull out and execute the sexual perverts who will otherwise be the ruination of his church. I have made my disdain for Pope Francis as both a leader, and a man no secret on this blog in the past. However, I am Christian; despite what my leaders make of our faith institutions. I believe Pope Francis can be redeemed of his amoral, sick, and sinful life.
He must love his church as completely as Augusto Pinochet loved the nation of Chile. I will know my prayers for Pope Francis’ redemption have been answered when the residents of Rome complain of the loud helicopter sounds and the smell of JP8 fumes in and around The Holy See. Otherwise, Francis, it will be as Jesus once prophesied. The armies of Vespasian and Titus will not abide this and will soon be on the march.
