SEX CRIMES AND THE VATICAN
From the LINK TV web page. The video is on this page. A warning to the weak hearted. Some of the priest testimony about their crimes was so graphic, i wasn't able to watch parts of the documentary. Spotlight: Sex Crimes and the Vatican A secret document which sets out a procedure for dealing with child sex abuse scandals within the Catholic Church is examined by the BBC’s Panorama. This secret directive, called Crimen Sollicitationis, was enforced for 20 years by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger before he became the current Pope. It instructs bishops on how to deal with allegations of child abuse against priests and has been seen by few outsiders. Critics say the document has been used to evade prosecution for sex crimes. LINK TV And more, this from the BBC: Sex crimes and the Vatican It instructs bishops on how to deal with allegations of child abuse against priests and has been seen by few outsiders. Critics say the document has been used to evade prosecution for sex crimes. Crimen Sollicitationis was written in 1962 in Latin and given to Catholic bishops worldwide who are ordered to keep it locked away in the church safe. It instructs them how to deal with priests who solicit sex from the confessional. It also deals with "any obscene external act ... with youths of either sex." It imposes an oath of secrecy on the child victim, the priest dealing with the allegation and any witnesses. Breaking that oath means excommunication from the Catholic Church. Reporting for Panorama, Colm O'Gorman finds seven priests with child abuse allegations made against them living in and around the Vatican City. One of the priests, Father Joseph Henn, has been indicted on 13 molestation charges brought by a grand jury in the United States. During filming for Sex Crimes and the Vatican, Colm finds Father Henn is fighting extradition orders from inside the headquarters of this religious order in the Vatican. The Vatican has not compelled him to return to America to face the charges against him. BBC So let's see if i got this right?? Having sex with your girlfriend is a mortal sin, but if a priest rapes a little girl or sodomizes a little boy, then the Vatican gives that a hearty OK? What the Vatican and it's Nazi Pope have been doing is operating a continuing criminal enterprise that preys on children around the world. And they brag about how they're the #1 representative of God in the world? Sounds more like a bunch of sick and twisted old fruits, hiding behind the guise of religion so they can rape and sodomize children around the world. "Let my ROD and STAFF be a comfort unto thee." Comfort, hell, sounds downright painful.
