Israel is not to be accused of pederasty. (Babylonian Talmud, Kiddushin 82a)
It’s worth recalling Ratzinger’s talmudic attitude vis a vis investigation into the Church’s horrific sex predator problem by am haaretz:
It seems, now that “the brothers in the faith” have pretty much all they need from the Vatican, there’s little left to bargain with for media protection. I doubt Benedict’s effeminate hand slaps can stem the outrage he deserves to face now.
I propose that “Church militant” “traditionalists” who heed the call to “defend the ‘holy father'” against “his attackers” ask themselves a simple question: if “the holy father” is able to change ancient Catholic tradition and teaching to suit “the brothers in the faith” in a matter of weeks and months, then why, even after decades pass, is it not possible to protect the souls of Catholic children from sex predators in “the holy father’s” employ?
