Penance is not justice; penitence is inequality to the lifetime suffering of victims of the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army

Benedict XVI called on the Catholic Church at a Vatican mass on Thursday attended by the Pontifical Biblical Commission: "Now, under the attacks from the world that speak of our sins, we see that...it is necessary to make penitence, to recognise what is wrong in our lives". This involved "opening oneself up to forgiveness, preparing oneself for forgiveness, allowing oneself to be transformed." (See Benedict XVI to lead marathon Bible reading on Italian TV http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2008/10/benedict-xvi-to-lead-marathon-bible.html)

If our Supreme Courts and justice houses in every country followed Benedict XVI Catholic recipe of ‘penance’ or the ‘transformation’ through the Sacrament of Penance (which is a 2-minutes quickie confession to a Catholic priest, absolution, and a quick recitation of a Hail Mary as penance), all our jails and CSI Crime Scene Investigation labs would be empty. A rapist could simply go to confession, do the prescribed penitence and go scot-free, and then keep on raping and keep on doing penance. This same papal penance formula would apply to all killers, thieves, defamers, pedophiles, etc.

The problem with the 1.2 billion Catholics is that they believe the Pope is the representative of Christ who is above sin and above the secular law, and that Catholic theology is the most important knowledge to be had. They refuse to see that John Paul II wrote the most comprehensive collection of Catholic theology but he was the most callous pope who did not protect or defend one Catholic altar boy from one pedophile priests during his 26+ years papacy See http://jp2m.blogspot.com/ .

Catholics refuse to see that When it comes to justice, secularism trumps Catholicism. Sacraments of Penance, Eucharist & Priesthood are worthless in our justice system http://jp2army.blogspot.com/2010/03/when-it-comes-to-justice-secularism.html

Catholics believe that ‘forgiveness’ is a simple feel-good ritual of wearing a little piece of sackcloth, fasting meat on Friday, depriving oneself of chocolate and coffee, whipping mildly oneself like John Paul II did see John Paul II the Great clashing cymbal of St. Paul http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2009/11/john-paul-ii-great-clashing-cymbal-of.html, take a short walk and recite the rosary, and all that will make-up for the sins of the world.

Benedict XVI said that it involved "opening oneself up to forgiveness, preparing oneself for forgiveness, allowing oneself to be transformed." But ‘Forgiveness’ is a gizmo of injustice to victims of the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army http://jp2army.blogspot.com/2010/03/forgiveness-is-gizmo-of-injustice-to.html

Perhaps Benedict XVI should put down his Bible for a minute and read the Biggest Vatican stories of the decade: John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army committed Holy ES Eucharist-and-Sodomy of Biblical proportions http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2010/01/biggest-vatican-stories-of-decade-john.html and he’ll understand that no amount of Catholic ceremonial ‘penance’ can heal the pains of these victims of pedophile priests.

The biggest problem of the 1.2 billion Catholics is the Fantasy of the Mass wherein they believe that only all male Pope and priests can instantly re-incarnate the flesh of an infinite God! The Catholics are very intelligent and have learned theologians, but really, no finite man can re-incarnate an infinite God, no finite pope or priest can surpass the 9-months pregnancy of the Virgin Mother of God see illustrations in Magisterium Benedict VERSUS Holy Mary: Priests' transubstantiation instant reincarnation of Christ VERSUS Mary’s 9 months pregnancy& child birth http://stella0maris.blogspot.com/

So, no can do, Happy 83rd Birthday Benedict XVI, your head is wanted by the guillotine of the media that has toppled down all despots in democratic countries like Pinochet…it is your turn to stop fooling us with feel-good theological jargons.

Pope says church must do penance for abuse cases

Thursday, April 15, 2010
VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Benedict said on Thursday the sexual abuse scandal shaking Roman Catholicism showed the Church needed to do penance for its sins, in a rare public reference by the pope to pedophilia in the priesthood.

"Now, under attack from the world which talks to us of our sins, we can see that being able to do penance is a grace and we see how necessary it is to do penance and thus recognize what is wrong in our lives," the said pope at a mass in the Vatican.

This involved "opening oneself up to forgiveness, preparing oneself for forgiveness, allowing oneself to be transformed," said the pope, whose last public utterance on the scandal was his letter to the Irish people, made public on March 20.


Pope calls for 'penitence'

VATICAN CITY
ANSA
(ANSA) - Vatican City, April 15 - Pope Benedict XVI on Thursday called for penitence in the face of attacks on the Catholic Church's "sins".

The pope said at a Vatican mass: "Now, under the attacks from the world that speak of our sins, we see that...it is necessary to make penitence, to recognise what is wrong in our lives".

The pope's words at the ceremony attended by the Pontifical Biblical Commission appeared set to be seen as his first public apology for the latest string of abuse scandals to hit the Church. The pope made a written apology for clerical sex abuse in an Easter letter to Irish Catholics but has not spoken out publicly about the growing scandals in Ireland, Austria, Netherlands, Norway, Germany and Italy which have shaken trust in the Church.

Report: Pope says "we" must repent for abuse

VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI referred Thursday to "attacks" on the church stemming from clerical sexual abuse scandal and said "we Christians" must repent for sins and recognize mistakes, news reports said.

Benedict made the off-the-cuff comments during his homily at a Mass inside the Vatican for members of the Pontifical Biblical Commission, the ANSA news agency reported.

Victims of clerical abuse have long demanded that Benedict take more personal responsibility for clerical abuse. Those demands have intensified in recent weeks as the Vatican and Benedict himself have been accused of negligence in handling some cases.

The only penitence that would matter is if once a year *all* clergy right up to the pope were to prostrate themselves naked on the steps of every church and subject themselves to some of the abuse clergy have dished out to everyone else, where anyone and everyone can come and beat them with chains, whips, straps with metal embedded, be forced to lay in their own urine, feces, and vomit and be forced to eat the same, sleep on the cold pavement naked, and be sodomized by implements such as dirty toilet plungers. This would be a once a year thing, probably during lent, and *all* clergy would have to participate, *no exceptions* for any of them. No little disciplines to beat them, but hard sticks and baseball bats in addition to sharp leather straps. They have to remain publicly naked not just to be humiliated but to show how much some of them get off on their "penance" in a sadomasochistically sexual manner so that the world knows just how sick they truly are.

Wow, this Pope was very kind to include so many people in the group that needs to repent. Just think--even the kids who were victimized by priests and by Church officials who unleashed pedophile priests on unsuspecting parishes--even those kids need to repent, because they're Christians. The Pope doesn't feel a need to distinguish between those who abused and those who were abused. I wonder if Jesus signed off on this speech. My hope is that Catholics will start sending their kids to Catholic school with small, good quality vidcams...the kind that can video what's going on without being easily spotted. When priests do what (some) priests do, these parents need to go straight to the police or DA. Forget about the the Church.
