BREAKING: Future Pope Refused to Defrock Priest Rapist

Friday, April 9, 2010

The future Pope Benedict XVI resisted pleas to defrock a California priest with a record of sexually molesting children, citing concerns including “the good of the universal church,” according to a 1985 letter bearing his signature.

In an Associated Press exclusive:

The correspondence, obtained by The Associated Press, is the strongest challenge yet to the Vatican’s insistence that Benedict played no role in blocking the removal of pedophile priests during his years as head of the Catholic Church’s doctrinal watchdog office.

The letter, signed by then-Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, was typed in Latin and is part of years of correspondence between the Diocese of Oakland and the Vatican about the proposed defrocking of the Rev. Stephen Kiesle.

The Vatican refused to comment on the contents of the letter Friday, but a spokesman confirmed it bore Ratzinger’s signature.

The diocese recommended removing Rev. Stephen Kiesle from the priesthood in 1981, the year Ratzinger was appointed to head the Vatican office that shared responsibility for disciplining abusive priests.

But the future pope also noted that any decision to defrock Kiesle must take into account the “good of the universal church” and the “detriment that granting the dispensation can provoke within the community of Christ’s faithful, particularly considering the young age.” Kiesle was 38 at the time.

Kiesle had been sentenced in 1978 to three years’ probation after pleading no contest to misdemeanor charges of lewd conduct for tying up and molesting two young boys in a San Francisco Bay area church rectory.

The evidence is now conclusive. Pope Benedict XVI is complicit is the cover-up of the largest priest sex abuse scandal in modern history. It is incumbent upon Catholics to demand their Pope immediately resign. Joseph Ratzinger is morally decrepit, ethically bankrupt and psychologically ill-suited to be the spiritual leader of the 1.1 billion member Roman Catholic Church.

    I’m soi surprised *snort*

    Just another day in the life of BeneDICK the Nazi Pontiff.

  2. Estacada says:

    As I’ve said before, can you imagine if the public learned that then-Sen. Barack Obama had personal knowledge of a staffer or aide had raped children and he refused to fire them?

    People would demand Obama’s impeachment.

    The Vatican is no different. This is an organization and not some lofty group of spiritual leaders sitting on a cloud. Christopher is correct: this Pope MUST go and the sooner the better.

  3. Mets Fan says:

    Could this letter be the proverbial Smoking Gun?

  4. Rachel says:

    This Pope knows the jig is up. He’s trying to use the Vatican lawyers to shield him from prosecution for sex abuse crimes because he’s the “head of state.” I thought this said it all. If he really cared about the future of the Catholic Church and his flock, he would admit error, convene Vatican III to deal with policy of pedophile priests and then step down. But he’s a pig and none of this will happen.

  5. Harry says:

    There’s a Catholic church near my place. I used to see large crowds lined up for Sunday mass when I jogged by. Now, there’s hardly anyone on Sunday.

  6. chlost says:

    The other very disturbing part of this story is that the priest received “misdemeanor charges of lewd conduct for tying up and molesting two boys….”. MISDEMEANOR charges? It was not just the Catholic church turning its eyes away.

  7. lea-lea says:

    The sexual abuse cases involving priests and children is criminal behavior.

    No parsing and no marginalizing. In another time, men who engage in pederasty and pedophilia would have been subjected to castration with a dull, rusty knife.

  8. Chad Lebanon says:

    I saw today where the Pope agreed to meet with the victims of priest sex predators.

    He’d better start soon because Benedict is 82 years old and with thousands of sex abuse victims out there to meet, I don’t think he has enough years left on his mortal clock to grease their palms with a cross and a twenty dollar bill.

    Just saying…

  9. Peace Nick says:

    I don’t know if there’s a “God” or a Supreme Being and at the end of the day, what does it matter? What I do know if human being are starved for some sort of spiritual satisfaction.

    Maybe this will come from first contact with alien life and the realization that we’re not alone in the universe, or from volunteering once a week at a hospice for terminal residents facing the end of their earthly life.

    But this much I do know. The behavior of these sex abusers in the Roman Catholic Church and Papa’s hideous history of enabling and protecting them from consequences and prosecution, is slowly but surely destroying what moral authority the Vatican once enjoyed.

    Pope Benedict XVI isn’t about light and love: he represents darkness and evil.

  10. Randy Arroyo says:

    How many more dead bodies will be discovered in the Vatican until the nations of the world rise up and do something to stop the sexual criminality taking place under this Pope’s watch? I mean, this is a very serious revelation and it can’t be swept under the rug.

  11. Kate Novotny says:

    My heart breaks for the victims.

    I am also angry with Pope Benedict and the “firm” in the Vatican. Their response to this scandal is so woefully inadequate and the focus, as usual, is on the church and protecting the Pope.

  12. Massagatto says:

    It’s said the eyes are the window to the soul.

    Perhaps, it is because this is true that I want to run as fast as my feet propel me in this opposite direction of this false profit. Pay attention when someone tells you who they are and Joseph Ratzinger is screaming his game from the top of St. Peters.

    If Joseph Ratzinger were to suffer criminal charges for his failure to correctly deal with the pedophiles in his midst, providing them safe harbor and a warm bed and a meal, this would unquestionably mean prison time and child molesters are at the bottom of the food chain in a man’s prison.

  13. feminazi says:

    Apparently, there is nothing that will make Catholics collectively say “enough” when it comes to protecting the leader of their church. Joseph Ratzinger has a history of extremely poor judgment when it comes to pedophile priests and as others have said, this issue really isn’t about him — it’s about the victims who have been shuffled to the silent sidelines.

  14. VicoDANIEL says:

    I think you’re all just being horrible.

    Didn’t read the memo last weekend during Holy Week and Easter?

    This just more of the “petty gossip” designed by evil liberals trying to destroy the Catholic Church. Pope Rat’s shit doesn’t stink.

    He’s infallible. He has risen! Can I have a witness?

  15. Bill Hussein O'Reilly says:

    “If you want to make a little money, write a book. If you want to make a lot of money, create a religion.” — L Ron Hubbard, Founder of Scientology

    Hello Papa Ratzi!

  16. See, he was only trying to save the universe. One punk kid versus the space-time continnum. You all would do the same.

  17. Shayne K. says:

    Four years to defrock a known pedophile priest.

    And the Vatican and its apologists wonder why the Catholic church has lost what little moral authority it once enjoyed?

  18. there is no doubt this pope should resign – and actually should be jail – but the saddest part – he will be replaced with another piece of shit clone whos entire job is to protect the priests

    the whole church should go chapter 7
