Pope Evades Criminal Charges by Hiding in Vatican February 16, 2013
Feb. 16, 2013 Late breaking news on the real reason why Pope Benedict XVI quit the job as Pope is centered around the fact that he was going to be charged for crimes against humanity by shielding pedophile priests in the RC church.
A statement given to Reuters reveals that the Church has decided to grant Joseph Ratzinger immunity against any and all charges involving his protection of known sex offenders.
As a high ranking member of the Catholic Church, Ratzinger knew priests who habitually were reported as sex offenders with children and shipped them to other parishes where they continued raping children.
Even after becoming a Pope as well he protected priests by denying criminal charges.
When he was an archbishop, J. Ratzinger knowingly and willingly protected the criminal priests and thereby avoiding legal and lawful charges against them. Now the church is willfully breaking the law by giving him sanctuary against the law.
The Hiding of a Criminal Pope
In a statement to the press today, the Vatican announced that:
It will give Joseph Ratzinger, formerly Pope Benedict XVI a permanent residency in the Vatican, which gives him legal immunity to any charges against him.
The entire world is wondering why a Pope would consider such drastic action as quitting while still in the papacy, since historically Popes usually die in...(snip)

Wow! This is a sweet deal! It would allow this man to live in the Vatican for the rest of his life!!! Has any previous pope had such a sweet deal?? No wonder he was willing to step down! [/heavy, heavy sarcasm]
This article is nonsense.
Secular speculation, by folks unable to conceive of noble motives in the resignation.
Only if you believe it.
Yep. Fire up the Viking ZOT kitties.
A WAR criminal... What war? What crime?
“ The Vatican decided today to give permanent sanctuary to a proven war criminal by allowing Joseph Ratzinger to obstruct”
Time for a ZOT.
Charged with “crimes against humanity”? By whom?
The lack of specifics makes me think this came from
some nutball kook website.
This is going to be one of those fantasies reposted by bloggers at least once a day for a month unless there’s some serious bud-nippin’ starting RIGHT NOW!
Who is the flake organization putting this out?
‘ International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS)’
and to quote the hildabeast,”What difference does it make now?”
Pretty much, yep. Considering the blog is a libtard site, it should be take with a grain of salt. Looking at the links and sources that site uses, they are just to the left of MSNBC.
The tribunal lists ONE member. ROFLOL
Acting Secretary: Kevin D. Annett, M.A., M.Div. (Canada)
Thank you All! I couldn’t find any refutes or even other articles making this seemingly outrageous statement.
Hold off on the ZOT! I was looking for clarification.
Yep. ZOT needed.
They list the folowing Sponsoring organizations:
Friends and Relatives of the Disappeared (Canada)
Templemore Forgotten Victims Group (Antrim, Ireland)
Akha Heritage Foundation (Thailand)
Survivors of Clergy Abuse (Australia)
Republican Party of Kanata
Cultural Foundation Native Expressions (Canada)
Against Church Terror (ACT) (United States)
Some version of this story has been going around since the resignation announcement. I believe some group claimed the Pope was guilty of civil rights violations for the Church’s prohibitions against homosexuality. Probably birth control and abortion too.
Anyway, yes, it is all nonsense.
Viewing all the vulgarities on this thread, it’s clear that the forces of the Vatican are posting at full tilt this morning.
This article is a zot-worthy pinata so have at it. But please stop with the potty language and references to potty language. This is the Religion Forum.
Any article that says “The Hiding of a Criminal Pope” deserves no credibility and should not be copied or linked to. Just left-wing moonbattery.
The article itself is a vulgarity but its still here.
Thanx. What I needed to see.
Looks like he is after British also...
Key witness William Coombes assassinated
From his site...
“William Coombes, a Canadian aboriginal, was to have served as a sworn witness at the September 2011 session of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State as to crimes of torture, genocide and crimes against humanity committed by Elizabeth of Windsor (Queen Elizabeth II) and her consort Prince Philip in Canada in October 1964 at Kamloops, British Columbia.”
You got most of them before I could get really warmed up, but I’d nominate Post 5 and Post 18 for ‘potty language’ zaps as well.
I’m leaving it up for awhile so the Religion Forum posters can attack it, post Viking Kitty stuff, etc.
This looks to be the founding of the ‘group’
Only NINE people in the photo. Many kids.
I’ve seen the potty mouth come from otherwise good folks when they get riled up. Forgive them. Folks are understandably sick and tired of attacks on the Catholic Church that turn out false in the midst of the sad truth of existing corruption. The CC is too big to completely avoid corruption, and efforts to purge the corruption must remain underway, both by the Church and critics, though fabricated problems only stall the effectiveness of all efforts to keep our noses clean. Wasn’t trying to cause a surge in cardiac arrests and ambulance rides, just found it suspicious when a friend emailed the link to me this morning.
Not to mention that as Pope he is also a Head of State and thereby pretty much immune to criminal prosecution anywhere...much more than being retired and hiding in the Vatican basement.
Hey, I was looking for Mr. Bear of the Maliseet and found a different one. The Maliseet being a tribe in the Quebec/Maine area. Perhaps around 4,000 people. They were caught between the British and French during the French and Indian war.
Maine has put a member of this tribe in their legislature this year.
Ratzinger isn’t a war criminal, either as pope or prior to being pope.
And advocating against homosexuality isn’t a crime against humanity, despite the legal cases various idiots are trying to push against him and a few American pastors.
Agreed. See the Pastor Lively ‘case’.
Okay. This is the correct Mr. Bear. Worked for a law firm. Helped get a huge settlement from the Jesuits for prior abuse.
At one time he was involved with Annett, but this open letter from Annett to Bear indicates that he withdrew from that group.

I regularly see the attacks from the left against all the Church for being inflexible about queers/feminists/abortion, etc. Just saw it today on Yahoo headlines against Tebow speaking at a Texas baptist church. Many denominations are giving in.
Those jabs will be forever coming. Satan doesn’t want his own church, he wants the Church to be his own.
Liberals simply hate ALL religions because of their immoral an unethical childish behaviors.
NO, they don’t hate ALL religions. Just Christianity and to some extent Judaism. why should they hate Islam, for example? They’re on the same side.
Well, with the exception of political correctness...
Seems sadly typical of “minority” representation.
They choose islam because it is anti-Christian, not because of what muslims believe. For example, islam is anti-queer, andti-feminist etc.
The crowd that cooperates with the fascist left have already trolled through to test market this.
Whether it's fascists calling themselves All Important Scientists, Inc. or false prophets calling themselves, Roody, Roody, Roody, Inc., they're all working for the same father of lies. The article you link to is intended to drive hits to the site full of lies the propagandists have created, the fascist media then site the number of hits on the site to "justify" their quoting known liars that are part of the same fascist media machinery.
In the past they've released "stunning news" that the EU was investigating the Pope and named a group as the one "heading the investigation". That's back when people weren't stupid enough to help send them hits, though, so they have have improved in the last year or two.
