In 2014, Pope Francis admitted that about two percent or 1 in 50 Roman Catholic priests are pedophiles. He then promised solutions to the history of the church essentially condoning the horrid practice. However, it appears that his solution is to sweep it under the rug.
According to a report out of the AP, Pope Francis has quietly reduced sanctions against a handful of pedophile priests, applying his vision of a merciful church even to its worst offenders in ways that survivors of abuse and the popes own advisers question.
One of the child molesting priests given clemency by the Pope was later arrested and sentenced to more than four years in jail for abusing multiple boys aged 12-16. The Rev. Mauro Inzoli is now facing a second church trial after new evidence emerged against him, according to the AP.
It is no secret that the Vatican has been sweeping the issue of pedophilia under the rug for many years. In 2014, the UN issued a scathing report, blasting the Vatican for protecting pedophiles.
The U.N. committees main human rights investigator, Sara Oviedo, led the most intense grilling the Holy See has received on the issue, according to a report by The Associated Press.
Given the zero tolerance policy of the Vatican, she asked, why were there efforts to cover up and obscure these types of cases?
Another committee member, psychologist Maria Rita Parsi, added: If these events continue to be hidden and covered up, to what extent will children be affected?
One such event that was covered up by the Vatican and the Western media at large was the reverend Gino Flaim, who claimed to understand pedophilia and said its caused by the childs attempt to find affection.
He told Italys La7 television channel, Ive been to lots of schools, and I know children. Unfortunately, there are children who seek affection because they dont receive it at home and I understand that some priests can give up. Pedophilia is a sin, and like all sins has to be accepted.
When the interviewer asked Flaim, So, you actually mean that most of the time its because of the kids fault?
Flaim responded by saying, Yes, most of the time.
After condoning pedophilia and blaming it on the child, this holy man went on to bash homosexuality, calling it a disease.
Many canon lawyers and church authorities argue that defrocking pedophiles can put society at greater risk because the church no longer exerts any control over them. They argue that keeping the men in restricted ministry, away from children, at least enables superiors to exert some degree of supervision.
However, as the case of Rev. Mauro Inzoli illustrates, these people need to be locked up.
In November, an Italian criminal judge showed little mercy in convicting Inzoli of abusing five children, aged 12-16, and sentencing him to four years, nine months in prison. The judge said Inzoli had a number of other victims but their cases fell outside the statute of limitations, according to the AP.
With pedophilia scandals rocking the elite right now, is it that surprising to learn that the Pope is attempting to downplay the churchs role in the horrific practice?
As the AP reports, Francis scrapped the commissions proposed tribunal for bishops who botch abuse cases following legal objections from the congregation. The commissions other major initiative a guideline template to help dioceses develop policies to fight abuse and safeguard children is gathering dust. The Vatican never sent the template to bishops conferences, as the commission had sought, or even linked it to its main abuse-resource website.
Obama worked feverishly to ruin America and was successful. President Trump's job of rolling back the governmental criminal activity is monumental....but he will succeed.
Bergoglio will carry on where his successors left off. He will continue to make this new religion even more humanist. God is forgotten now and the Blessed Sacrament is relegated from its true place in the center of the alter to a broom closet.
The Vatican, it would seem, is following the example of the Koran and his Muslim pals in making pedophilia an intramural sport.
I’m not a Catholic so my post is as a complete outsider. This Pope seems a political rather than a religious pope and Catholics have my concern and sympathy.
Pope POS, his ASSholiness.
Has he raped boys? What a monster.
The priests will yet have to pay for their sins. It will be better for them to have a millstone around their neck and tossed into the ocean than what they have committed. Those who cover for them as well.
Actually, on the face of it, there's nothing corrupt about revoking a priest's faculties (his permission to function as a priest) without formally laicizing him.
If he remains "on the books" as a priest, at least he has supervision. If for instance he flees his monastic residence, people will know. If he's laicized, he's just cut loose. No more supervision or accountability of any kind. Arguably, that's NOT what you want.
Needless to say, I'm not saying this to justify Pope Francis' decisions. He has been rewarding evildoers and marginalizing or punishing good and upright priests and bishops from the very beginning of his pontificate.
Which doesn't make the Catholic Church, in its doctrines and the faith, hope and love of all its members, false. Among even Jesus' hand-picked men, was Judas.

But it seems clear that your pope is turning your religion in a direction that you're not familiar with...And succeeding...He is well liked and respected amongst the Catholics of the world...
Where there’s smoke there’s fire.
"...well liked and well respected..." NOT! But the Church has faced far worse and is still here.
One thing I couldn’t get from the article - are these pedophiles still priests?
Apparently it depends on who is doing the raping or molesting.
It’s official - the Pope’s a democrat.
Do they all wear beards?
This "global approval" thing, itself, is a bad sign, inasmuch as the majority of people don't, I think, really know what he's about-- the controlled demolition of the edifice of the Church --- and those who know this, and support him anyway, are of the Enemy's party.
He did say the one thing that bothered him the mist about being Pope, was not being able to go out unnoticed to get pizza.
Read Fr. Oko’s report on Homoheresy. Marxists homosexuals were funnelled into the CC (seminaries) by Bella Dodd and the vast communist network-—as they did to all our institutions for the takeover-—in the 30s and 40s. Completed takeover was Vatican II-—Smoke of Satan.
They had a cabal of sodomites (Lucifereans) who controlled the Vatican bank since the 30s (if not before), and who got complete control over the Church in S.America and Mexico with “Liberation Theology” (Marxism) by the 40s-—the “Social” “Justice” Marxists who want “collective” one world religion where individualism and Free Will is destroyed in children.
We have an antipope as head of the Church. His “words” have proven his “fruit”. He is a Luciferean and only worships Lucifer, like the illuminati. He is in collusion with the illuminati-—Luciferean psychopathic sodomite elite who mock everything that God Designed—particularly the Natural Family and the human body (Reason). Little boys being raped and sacrificed is the Crowley “ideal” and has been going on with the Freemasons (illuminati) forever. “They” say that Pope John Paul XXIII was a Freemason, as later “popes”—the one who called for the VII. “Freemason Catholic” is an oxymoron-—as is “Marxist Catholic” or “Socialist Catholic” or “Homosexual Catholic”. You can never be both.
The sodomites want the destruction of the Natural Family, free will, and individualism for “collective minds” and for the little boys—everything which created the Age of Reason and the US Constitution has to be destroyed in children so we are slaves/drones/sex-sacrificial objects for the satanic cabal. They want a Neo-Feudalist world with the He/She goat god ruling.
I am not a Catholic either. I go to a Baptist church. Most Baptists that I know don’t care who the Pope is or what he says. However, I recognize him as an important and very influential man. With that being said he can spread the Word of Christ or purposely pervert it. I think the current one is perverting it and all things good that the Catholic has been. Why did the other one resign? he seemed like a very strong man of God.
There were only four or five PEDOPHILE priests in the U.S. in the last sixty years.
Most of the rest were pederasts. Homosexual men preying on young males.
