Grinning and giving a thumbs-up, Britains most senior Catholic cleric poses with his friend, disgraced paedophile Jimmy Savile.
The snap, taken six years ago, emerged last night after Cardinal Keith OBrien quit amid allegations of inappropriate acts towards fellow priests.
The photo was taken in Edinburgh in 2007 as fund-raiser Savile and the cardinal unveiled a £375,000 vehicle for the disabled.
The pair first met in the 70s, when OBrien was a priest in Kilsyth, North Lanarkshire and worked with a friend of Saviles mum.
Another priest at Kilsyth at the time has been suspended following claims of abuse against two young victims.
It was Cardinal OBrien who ordered the investigation last September.
When Saviles vile secrets became known, the cardinal called for him to be stripped of his papal knighthood, awarded in 1990.
Cardinal OBrien quit just 24 hours before he was due to fly to Rome to help choose the next pope.

satan recruited these sinners into the church to implode it from inside. It won’t work, but he is trying.
“LONDON (AP) Police investigating child sex abuse allegations against the late BBC television host Jimmy Savile arrested former glam rock star and convicted sex offender Gary Glitter on Sunday, British media reported, raising further questions about whether Savile was at the center of a broader pedophile ring.”
Apparently everyone who was anyone was Savile’s friend in the last 40 years.
“The new arrests lend weight to claims made by many of Saviles alleged victims, who have maintained that the beloved TV personality was part of an organized pedophile ring — one that included other BBC staffers who shared his sexual interest in minors, as reported by the Evening Standard. Authorities believe abuse may have taken place over four decades and involved 200 possible victims.”
And the close association of the Pedo with Prince Charles and Di
So the question is why did the Cardinal resign right before he was to leave to vote on a Pope.
Was it just because he was forewarned that this picture was coming out. Would just a picture cause him to resign???
Or is there more to the D-Notice Tony Blair story.
I guess we will have to wait and see if anything comes out.
My friend Savile by Cardinal ‘Sin’
he didn’t quit.
He was fired
It’s a good thing there are staunch anti-Gay clerics hard at work like UK Cardinal Keith O’Brien to stand against the evil Gays.... wait what? the same guy? oh
Jimmy Savile Satanic Sex Ring Claim: Star ‘Worshipped Devil’
it wasn’t the picture that caused the resignation, he was sexually harrassing his underlings
Now knowing about the pedophilia, that picture is very disconcerting.
I wonder if this guy knew Savile?
Are you so sure??? They just didn’t suddenly come out an accuse the Cardinal did they?One allegation is from the 80’s. The Church knew NOTHING about this until last week????
Or is this something that is orchestrated by one faction of the Church as the vote looms near.
I don’t know which side that Cardinal is on. Bertrone or Sodano.
The Sunday Times did ,in fact, get leaked the entire list of UK subscribers to child porn sites with over 7000 names -among them an official with the Church Of England.
I think there is a good chance that Blair did issue a D notice.
I have looked around to see what kind of info is out there and most of it is on sites of people talking about this and some articles of people being arrested. Such as that one guy from the band that I listed.
This reminds me of The Franklin Cover Up.
That photo looks Photoshopped. I don’t have a dog in this fight, but something is “off” (aside from the subject matter) in the picture.
It gets worse. Mark Thompson was head of the BBC just before all this broke and was allegedly informed of the pending scandal and did nothing.
So where is Thompson now?
He’s running the New York Times.
Thank you for posting that. I am very hard on the Pope because I think he knew about and hid abuse in his former job with the Church.
But if it turns out that it looks like he did fall on the sword to rip the rug out from under the nightmare then I will have to praise him.
I will say again, this reminds me of The Franklin Cover Up.
And to repeat the words of the dead former CIA director:
“What you have to understand, John, is that sometimes there are forces and events too big, too powerful, with so much at stake for other people or institutions, that you cannot do anything about them, no matter how evil or wrong they are and no matter how dedicated or sincere you are or how much evidence you have. This is simply one of the hard facts of life you have to face.”
Maybe it takes a Pope resigning to clear the evil from the Church.
Btw, just as important and hard to control is the money laundering at the Vatican Bank.
unless of course the pope resigned under the same sorts of threats
