UN gives Vatican deadline to answer questions on sex abuse cases
The Globe and Mail ^ | 7/10/2013 | Robert Evans

Posted on 07/11/2013 8:15:35 AM PDT by Dr. Thorne

A United Nations human rights panel has posed a list of tough questions to the Vatican about child abuse by Catholic priests, a potential embarrassment for Pope Francis a few months into his papacy. The U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC) asked for “detailed information on all cases of child sexual abuse committed by members of the clergy, brothers or nuns” since the Holy See last reported to it some 15 years ago, and set Nov. 1 as a deadline for a reply.

The corrupt one-world government strong arms the corrupt false religion about it's corruption. The irony is thick.

The corrupt one-world government strong arms the corrupt false religion Church founded by Jesus Christ. It reminds me of Ted Kennedy 'pontificating' about Clarence Thomas' alleged moral lapses, only worse.

Catholic Church was around long before the corrupt, morally bankrupt, and satanic UN was ever dreamed of, and will still be around after the UN collapses under the weight of its own corruption and malfeasance.

Just make the U.N. go away...
It pains me to no end that my tax dollars support those scoundrels -- keeps them in their Penthouses, and pays for their prostitutes... and all we get are mealy-mouthed proclamations and attempts to take away our freedoms for the 'greater good'...
I hate those guys.

Many of the new provisions were necessary to bring the city state's legal system up to date after the Holy See signed international treaties, such as the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Why doesnt the OIC’s “UN” challenge islam and all their abuses?

Or how about challenge Iran for their seat for “human rights”

What does islam know about democracy and rights? Sure they can parrot the wests words, but they have no idea of its infrastructure.... and support right back to the MAgna Carta.

What a bunch of illiterates!

Meanwhile you have terrorists seated at the UN, no less on civil rights.

You have Christians being slaughtered, exiled, churches homes and businesses burned or taken over...

Crickets.

So they rule the church now.

Babel indeed.

Because mohammedans regularly dress up in C-4 haute couture and detonate themselves ... Catholics don't do that quite as often.

I attended a conference re: rights of the child at the UN a couple years ago.

If anyone read it, there’s no way they would sign it.

It’s insidious.

And it will still be around carrying out Christ’s work long after those individuals and sects who say she is a false religion have been forgotten and their errors defeated.

I wonder what their views are on child marriage, dancing boys use and the rape of Christian women and girls by islamists?

And if the Holy Father doesn’t comply, what is the UN going to do? Put on their little blue helmets and invade the Vatican?

The UN?

Those paragons of virtue will probably get "peacekeeping troops" from some wonderful garden spot of moral rectitude like ... Oh, I don't know ... Iran, maybe. Or Pockeeestahn. Or the United States.

Wow - your bigotry against Catholics is breathtaking and sad. Too bad you speak from ignorance. But for the Catholic Church, there would be no Western Civilization. The fact that there are some bad eggs in the Church (even Christ picked 1 traitor ) does not mean that you can discount all of the wonderful work of the Church.

Don’t give them any ideas....but what I think the UN will probably do is attempt to criminalize the Church in order to give countries the power to suppress or even expel it.

It is pretty convenient to go after the Church, ain't it.

One of Alinsky's tenets is to accuse your enemy of what you are already doing so that your enemy gets the media hit and you get to skate.

So, question is how many bonafidable cases of pedophilia do they have within their own ranks?

Psst, he’s Protestant. He believes that the Church impeded progress. If only the Church were destroyed then we can move on to our future.

Like Bishop Vicky Gene Robinson.

Vatican to UN: [Calvin thumbing nose]

Vatican about UN:

In the face of the unrelenting growth of global interdependence, there is a strongly felt need, even in the midst of a global recession, for a reform of the United Nations Organization, and likewise of economic institutions and international finance, so that the concept of the family of nations can acquire real teeth. (67)

-- highlight from the paragraph-by-paragraph summary of the 2009 papal encyclical Caritas in Veritate

The eggs didn't get their by themselves...It's the Mother Chicken that leads the way...

Your good works???

Isa_64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

“corrupt false religion”

And your authority derived from.....?????

(psst....he’s going to tell us it is the Bible, but neglect to mention that it didn’t exist until the 4th century and the very folks he’s calling “corrupt and false”, are those who singularly preserved it for the subsequent 1600 years)

LOL! The Church was here long before the corrupt UN. This should be reversed.

Has the UN asked Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, etc. about their child abuse history -- which BTW is larger than the Catholic Church's.>

If this gets the truth out then I’m not sure why any Catholic would be against this. It’s time to clean house. If this helps us on the road to doing that, so be it.

The corrupt one-world government strong arms the corrupt false religion about it's corruption. The irony is thick.

About as thick as the spiritual fog clouding up your glasses.

The real irony is that the one organization which truly defends children as evidenced by its long and often lonely fight with the UN to stop abortion being declared a universal "human right", is now taken to task by the world's major purveyor of child abuse, all in the name of "the children".

The UN, cheered on by America and most other Western nations is murdering children with one hand and pretending to protect them with the other.
