Holy Crap! What “rigor”? Due to Pope's rigor, sex abuse victims are rendered justice, writes Italian bishop who is out-of-touch with reality

Holy Smoke, those Italian bishops and EWTN are really out-of-touch with reality as they defend the Pope with strong worded lies and Holy Crap. See Benedict XVI is Papal Humpty Dumpty. Pope showed wisdom and firmness against abuses as CDF prefect, says Msgr. Scicluna is preposterous! http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2010/03/benedict-xvi-is-papal-humpty-dumpty.html

So from Monsignor Scicluna to Bishop Giuseppe Versaldi, Benedict XVI is made to appear as “defender of justice” when the fact is, all he did was to ‘defend the faith’ as Prefect of the CDF, the Inquisition, and what he really enjoyed was reading Jesuit books and Liberation Theology and counting with his fingers and toes which Jesuit and theologian to silence, see the list in BewareBenedict XVI and his allies can be violent http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2010_02_01_archive.html

Benedict XVI NEVER defended victims of the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Armyhttp://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2010/02/pope-benedict-never-defended-children.html

Benedict XVI condemns abuse of children by priests 3 DECADES LATE…Cardinal Ratzinger Pope B16 is a pathological liar


Bishop Giuseppe Versaldi of Alessandria, Italy, is a psychologist who believes that years of sodomy by a John Paul II Pedophile Priest can be psychologically cured by lying down and talking about it on his psychologist’s couch. And of course he worked at the Gregorian University which the Pope is in a hurry to shut down, so as to get rid of those creative Jesuit Theologians like the late Jacques Dupuis.

We exposed EWTN a few years ago showing that Mother Angelica has 50 millions dollar$$$ worth of diamonds carved in the walls of her personal chapel in her monastery in Alabama. Of course, these diamonds are blood-money from where else but South Africa See our earlier posts in the John Paul II Millstone http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2007_06_01_archive.html

Those wealthy Italian Bishops and wealthy Mother Angelica sure are faithful to the trillion dollar$$$ Chair of St. Peter in Rome.

Compare the CRIMES and their VICTIMS in America

Victims - Attackers - Responsible Leader

Pearl Harbor - 3,000 victims - 170 planes - Admiral Yamamoto

WTC & 9/11 attacks - 5,000 victims - 19 Muslims - Osama bin Laden

USA Priest Pedophilia - 12,000 victims - 6,000 priests - John Paul II, Benedict XVI-Cardinal Ratzinger & Opus Dei

Due to Pope's rigor, sex abuse victims are rendered justice, writes Italian Bishop

Rome, Italy, Mar 15, 2010 / 12:14 pm (CNA/EWTN News).-

In an article titled "The rigor of Benedict XVI against the filth in the Church," Bishop Giuseppe Versaldi of Alessandria, Italy defended the "rigor" of the Holy Father in fighting sexual abuse within the Church. It is "ungenerous," he wrote, to deny the "open and decided battle" he and the Church are leading against these crimes.

In Sunday's edition of L'Osservatore Romano, the bishop wrote that some clarifications are needed regarding the sexual abuses that have been coming to light in recent days. He began by emphasizing the Church's "wholehearted condemnation of these serious crimes that disgust the conscience of anyone."

When these crimes involve people with vested roles in the Church, he added, "the scandal becomes even graver and more detestable.”

"Rightly, the Church does not intend to tolerate any uncertainty as to the condemnation of the crime and the removal from the ministry of whomever turns out to be stained of such infamy, along with just reparation for victims."

After underscoring this position, however, Bishop Versaldi brought up the existence of a "tenacity towards the Catholic Church," commenting that it is as if it were the institution with the most frequent instances of abuses.

He referred to a "much reduced" number of cases in the U.S. and "even fewer in Europe," saying that while this puts the phenomenon in perspective quantitatively, "it does not reduce in any way its condemnation nor the fight to eradicate it, as the priesthood demands that only humanly and spiritually mature people enter.”

"Even a single case of abuse by a priest would be unacceptable," he stressed.

But the "negative image" given to the Catholic Church is exaggerated, Bishop Versaldi said, considering that "no causal nexus exists" between the priest's celibacy and deviant behaviors. First of all, “because it is well known that sexual abuses of minors are more widespread among lay and married people than among celibate clergy; secondly, the statistics of the research highlight that the priests guilty of abuses already do not observe the vow of celibacy."

However, he continued, "it is even more relevant to underscore that the Catholic Church - despite the deformed image with which it is wished to be represented - is the institution that has decided to lead the clearest battle against sexual abuses against minors starting from within."

This is the place where Benedict XVI has given "a decisive impulse to this fight," thanks to his 20-plus years of service within the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Bishop Versaldi stated. From this "observatory," he explained, the Pope worked extensively with cases of sexual abuse and promoted reforms including "more rigorous" legislative norms.

"Now, as Supreme Pastor of the Church, the Pope maintains ... in this field a style of government that aims for the purification of the Church, eliminating the 'filth' that nests in it."

"Benedict XVI demonstrates himself to be, thus, a vigilant shepherd over his flock, despite the false image of (being) a devoted scholar only to writing books who would delegate to others the government of the Church," stressed the Bishop of Alessandria.
"It is thanks to the greater rigor of the Pope that several episcopal conferences are shedding light on cases of sexual abuses, collaborating also with civil authorities to render justice to the victims," he explained.

Bishop Versaldi then called it "paradoxical" that the Church would be represented "as if it were the responsible entity for abuses of minors." He also dubbed it "ungenerous" not to recognize "the merit" of the Church, "especially Benedict XVI," in leading "an open and decided battle against the crimes committed by its priests."

The bishop further proposed "another paradox" that exists today: that "wisely" established Church norms that are strict in preventing those who are immature "in the sexual field" from becoming priests, are “attacked and criticized by that same group that would like it to be the principal (entity) responsible for abuses of minors.

"The clear and rigorous line assumed by the Holy See," he concluded, "should instead be received in the Church ... to guarantee the truth, justice and charity towards everyone."

Bishop of Alessandria Giuseppe Versaldi is the ordinary emeritus of canon law and psychology at the Pontifical Gregorian University.

Given that the Catholic Church has gotten away with far worse during the Inquisition and is currently in the process of naming that "Demon" that tempts priest to commit unlawful carnal acts against Altar Boys, could we be witnessing the makings of Dan Brown's next bestseller?

The Chatholic Church with "God's Rottweiler" at its helm running interference for Pope John Pauls child molesters now wants to fast-track Sainthood declaration for the former Pope John Paul.
How can the Church square a man with full knowledge of pedaphillia and approved the shuffling and hiding of evidence away from judicial authorities be called a "Saint".
May he and all his brethren who aided and abetted in this generational cover up burn in Hell.
