Another day, another pedophile priest sex abuse story involving the Vatican and Pope RatNAZI. Seriously, there are so many of them that I’m almost tempted to throw in the towel and not even bother to report them but, this case is so heinous, so grotesque that I feel my readers need to know the details.
Vatican officials, including the future Pope Benedict XVI, AKA, Pope RatNAZI, failed to defrock a priest who molested as many as 200 deaf underage boys, even though several American bishops repeatedly warned them that failure to act on the matter could embarrass the church, according to church files newly unearthed as part of a lawsuit.
The internal correspondence from bishops in Wisconsin directly to Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, the future pope, shows that while church officials tussled over whether the priest should be dismissed, their highest priority was protecting the church from scandal.
The Wisconsin case involved an American priest, the Rev. Lawrence C. Murphy, who worked at a renowned school for deaf children from 1950 to 1974. But it is only one of thousands of cases forwarded over decades by bishops to the Vatican office called the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, led from 1981 to 2005 by Cardinal Ratzinger. It is still the office that decides whether accused priests should be given full canonical trials and defrocked.
In fact, rarely will the Vatican resort to defrocking a pedophile priest. In fact, only 20 percent of the 3,000 accused priests whose cases went to the church’s doctrinal office between 2001 and 2010 were given full church trials, and only some of those were defrocked.
As I’ve advised before, as a cautionary note to my readers, if you are a parent with young boys and male teenagers, under any circumstances let them alone with a priest. The culture of Catholicism is dangerous cesspool of festering perversion.
