Cardinal Castrillion Hoyos Says John Paul II Approved His Letter Encouraging Shielding of Sex PredatorsApril 19, 2010
Following up on the last blog posting, Bishops and Popes Ignored Warnings of Sex Predator Priests, here are documents in which Fr. Gerald Fitzgerald, in his capacity as founder of the Servants of the Paraclete, an order for rehabilitation of alcoholic and pedophile priests, warns numerous bishops and Pope Paul VI of his findings that pedophile priests were not capable of rehabilitation; that if they were returned to parishes they would almost certainly continue sexually abusing children, and his recommendation that they should be laicized and ostracized.
The claim “we didn’t know” is a lie. They’ve known since at least the early 1950’s.
A PDF of the documents is at this link:
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?
