Damn Those Catholics

Well now the World-Wide Catholic Church Sex Scandal has momentarily shifted back to the western hemisphere. Now it’s Brazil’s Catholic Churches that are hosting Pedophile priests.  This time there’s video. I don’t know about you, but I don’t think I would like to receive the communion Host from a priests hands…you never know what it’s been up to.

The secular authorities need to step up and arrest all those priests accused of abusing children.  The Church needs to notify the police when a priest is accused, and have no further contact with said priest.  From what I have seen, in all the cases I have followed, a sex offender never changes, he will always repeat offend.

Story follows:
“RIO DE JANEIRO – The Brazilian authorities are investigating three priests accused of sexually abusing altar boys after a video allegedly showing one case of abuse was broadcast on television, police said on Tuesday.

The case came to light after a network aired a video purportedly showing an 82-year-old priest having sex with a 19-year-old altar boy who worked for him for four years.  EEEwww.

Other young men appeared on the report saying that they, too, had been abused. The Vatican confirmed that three Brazilian clergymen had been removed in the paedophilia scandal.

The scandal is the first to erupt in Latin America since a wave of predator priest scandals recently hit several European Catholic churches.

Meanwhile, Pope Benedict XVI urged young people on Monday to follow “the call” to the priesthood as Catholic groups in his native Germany hit out at his silence over the snowballing paedophilia scandal.

His rallying cry came as the Catholic church struggles with damaging child sex abuse scandals in several European countries, including in Germany, the 82-year-old pope’s country of birth.

Former victims have alleged abuse at two-thirds of Germany’s 27 dioceses. One of them is a boarding school attached to Regensburg cathedral’s choir, which was run by the pope’s elder brother, Mr. Georg Ratzinger for 30 years.”  3-17-10

This issue will not go away until the Church is brought up on charges, or closed down.

GOD is NOT happy with these priests…and He is not happy with the leadership. 😦
