You have to drag the time slider a half hour to the right to start the video off.

Pay attention to the 0:52:20 mark and beyond for the letter Rood reads about the Pope possibly facing arrest and prosecution for "crimes against humanity" re. his alleged promotion of institutionalized priestly child rape.

This is the first and only report I have seen about this development, so can't vouch for it's authenticity.

Rood is a pretty controversial character to be sure, but I can't imagine that he would fabricate something of this potential magnitude.

Does anyone else have any intel about this?

If true it would be very series indeedie (not to mention embarrassing) for the RCC, I would think.

If you are RCC I would not suggest watching anything beyond the letter, as he puts on a miter and goes off on a diatribe about the Papacy, Priesthood, Catholic traditions and other subjects pretty much guaranteed to offend you.

In about two to three months I can use about a yard or two of this for my garden.

There is a group calling itself the “International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State” (ITCCS) supposedly out of Brussels that is claiming this. I personally think it’s a bunch of B.S.

Check out:
itccs.org

All he has to do is join the Democrat party and he’ll get a pass.

This has been going on for some time - it’s some EU group, although I don’t believe it’s a country per se - that is doing this. When BXVI visited England a year or so ago, there was a British group trying to have him arrested on an EU charge (of “homophobia,” IIRC).

Tragic, but I suppose I should not be surprised. Those who care about the Catholic Church are going to need to put in some overtime.

>> Does anyone else have any intel about this?

Yes - I’ve just heard the same from a Catholic theologian friend. The pope, a brilliant academic, has repeatedly handled situations requiring “delicacy” poorly:

1/ The church is essentially dead in Europe, and the pope has not been effective in reversing this.
2/ His non-support of Turkey entering the EU.
3/ His statements to the Jewish community.
4/ First on the list, however, is his stonewalling of the sex abuse scandals, and in fact ordering his bishops to continue the coverups.
5/ His bringing former Archbishop Mahony (Los Angeles) to Rome after the sex abuse scandal his Archdiocese endured. (It is my understanding that the current Archbishop - Jose Gomez - after reviewing the records of these 508 cases, has refused to allow Mahony to perform any duties within the Archdiocese - the largest in the United States).

Is this a big deal? Yes - the last resignation occurred nearly 600 years ago.

Right, he wouldn't fabricate it but,

". . . he puts on a miter and goes off on a diatribe about the Papacy, Priesthood, Catholic traditions and other subjects pretty much guaranteed to offend you."

he is a dedicated anti-Catholic who spews lies and half-truths about Christianity and the Catholic Church that are sure to offend Catholics.

Anyone who "can't imagine" Rood fabricating and/or repeating anti-Christian and anti-Catholic lies and garbage probably can't imagine someone pumping out little anti-Catholic comic books full of lies, either.

Yeah sure.

“This is the first and only report I have seen about this development, so can’t vouch for it’s authenticity.”

Authenticity? You really think you can authenticate the BS you just slathered all over the website?

Seriously? What are you going to do? Ask this anti-Catholic bigot to tell you if it’s on the level?

Do reseach? Ask for intel?

You sound very suspiciously like a banned quack ex-freeper.

An ‘unidentified’ EU country? How pathetic. They won’t even identify themselves.

Won’t go into the blather about the video, but basically the Vatican City is a sovereign state, no one can jump in and arrest anyone there. The rest of the argument is equally daft.

I am not a catholic but i will take it as a grain of salt until proven other wise.

Probably bull manure.

Hmmmm....there is a Saintly prophesy about a Pope being arrested just prior to the end-times unfolding...

So if Benedict avoids this and the next Pope falls victim to “charges”....

Actually, the thing to keep in mind...all this is supposed to happen, we’re just noting the markers.

What interesting times we live in....
