Benedict XVI is rubbing salt on the wounds of victims by refusing the resignation of 2 Irish Bishops who admitted to their role in the cover-up of John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army in Ireland. (There is no other way to hammer on the heads of 1.1 billion Catholics that John Paul II must never be called a saint in this generation and all generations to come than by identifying the most heinous crimes against children with his name). This latest papal despotic act proves the hypocrisy of Benedict XVI beyond reasonable doubt: He is apologizing to victims one day and then glorifying their criminal oppressors the next day. And imagine Benedict XVI will soon be widely declared as the “Conscience of the Age” in Rome's Santa Cruce Pontifical University this coming September. Go figure what conscience is being imposed to children of this Age, see our article http://jp2army.blogspot.com/2010/06/opus-dei-fabricate-age-of-benedict-xvi.html
Clericalism: Benedict XVI ask us to "love priests in spite of their weaknesses" -- meaning put priests above the laity and above the law http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2010/07/baloney-benedict-xvi-you-ask-us-to-love.html
Now that the three lawsuits against him by Kentucky victims have been dropped because of his political immunity, Benedict XVI is riding high in his totalitarian powers at the Vatican. He will use all his powers to eradicate the memory of the victims of the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army so he can go ahead and beatify and canonize his Papal Idol. We were right last year when we said: John Paul II is declared “Venerable” as the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army in Ireland explodes. Only in the Catholic church are criminals are glorified. See John Paul II Millstone http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2009_12_01_archive.html
So why does Benedict XVI glorify these two guilty Irish Bishops by refusing their resignations? Simple, so that they can continue their holy sorcery of the 9-seconds reincarnation of Christ in the Eucharist. See Eve and Benedict XVI blame the Devil. Analysis of Pope’s homily in Year for Priests -sorcerers of Christ’s flesh and blood http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2010/06/eve-and-benedict-xvi-blame-devil.html
Benedict XVI is a perfect clone of John Paul II and is actually is worse than him. At least John Paul II accepted the resignation of our criminal Cardinal Bernard Law of Boston, but Benedict XVI is not accepting the resignations of two Irish Bishops who were first discovered by the Irish Ryan and Murphy Reports to have covered-up pedophile priests.
Benedict XVI want all criminal Cardinals and Bishops to act AS IF nothing has happened in the Catholic Church, AS IF the sexual abuse scandal never happened, AS IF the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army never existed for over a quarter of the last 20th Century.
The Catholic myth continues: Confess your sins and it is forgiven. There is no need for jail time for criminals within the Catholic Church, not even if it is the government who has proven them guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Worse, they have personally confessed to their sins – exactly as the government has described them.
We are right, “Sins and crimes are not synonymous. Sinners and criminals are not one and the same" http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2010/05/sins-and-crimes-are-not-synonymous.html
Benedict XVI at his holiday in Castel Gandolfo, July 23, 2010, continues to rule out-of-touch with reality in his papal vacation castle
Benedict XVI is the most callous-hearted pope of the 21st century, next in line to Pope John Paul II the most callous-hearted pope of the 20th century. Together, they both did nothing to save hundreds of thousands of Catholic Children who suffered from tens of thousands of pedophile priests during the 26+ years papacy of John Paul II. At his papal vacation in the castle of Castel Gondolfo, Benedict watched a film to celebrate his 5 years of papacy. (This film was strategically produced by his native Bavaria in Germany to counter and segue the priest-pedophilia explosion in Germany). At the papal viewing, Benedict acted as if the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army never existed, as if the most heinous crimes against Catholic children under his watch as Cardinal Ratzinger never existed. It should not surprise us that Benedict XVI can make the papal crimes and the Vatican’s crimes against humanity
-- which innumerable pedophile priests committed in the last quarter of the 20th century -- disappear in smoke
. After all he is the most prominent magician or sorcerer of Christ’s reincarnation in 9-seconds (see Benedict XVI versus Mary
: Priests' transubstantiation instant reincarnation of Christ VERSUS Mary’s 9 months pregnancy& child birth http://stella0maris.blogspot.com/
How does Benedict XVI get away with his part in the Vatican’s crimes against humanity in the last quarter of the 20th century? He uses the same strategy that all popes have been doing for the last 2,000 years of Catholicism: By blaming the Devil and by using Christ as his papal crutch...and subjugating Mary and women (more on this later)
Benedict XVI will use the Devil and Christ to his advantage as long as both of them will keep him in power and keep the trillion dollar Vatican Bank rolling. During the closing ceremony of the Year for Priests, he used the Devil as the sole responsible leader for all the pedophile priests in the Catholic Church and for the 26 years pedophiliac papacy of John Paul II, see "Eve and Benedict XVI blame the Devil. Analysis of Pope’s homily in Year for Priests -sorcerers of Christ’s flesh and blood" http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2010/06/eve-and-benedict-xvi-blame-devil.html
At his papal retreat castle, Castel Gandolfo, surrounded by centuries of papal pomp as in the Vatican Palace, he perpetuates his autocracy and dictatorship as pope by using Christ to reiterate his absolute power as pope
. He said: "It was for me personally very moving to see some moments, above all the one in which the Lord placed on my shoulders the Petrine service
," he continued. "A weight that no one could carry by himself with his limited strength, but which can be carried because the Lord carries it and carries me.” He manipulates Christ by saying that he became Pope because “the Lord placed on my shoulders the Petrine service." So for all the sins of pedophilia, Benedict XVI blames the Devil and for all his Petrine power, Benedict XVI uses conveniently the power of Christ- Christ’s power is his equal papal power as well

Benedict XVI talks down on Mary the Mother of God
At the his speech after viewing the film, Benedict said: "I also found it beautiful that the film ends with the visit to the Mother of God, who teaches us humility, obedience and the joy that God is with us."
The film of Benedict XVI’s 5 years autocracy ends with Mary the Mother of God as role model of “humility, obedience and joy” to hammer on 1.1 billion Catholics and the whole world to be humble, obedience and joyful like Mary -- to obey the Petrine Pope.
This culmination reference to Mary reiterates also the misogynist stance against the ordination of women in the newly revised Code of Canon Law, see a compilation of reactions from around the world to the Pope's latest autocratic suppression on women http://pope-ratz.blogspot.com/2010_07_01_archive.html
Benedict XVI can talk down on Mary because he as pope and priests claim to have more power than her in that he can reincarnate Christ’s flesh in 9-seconds
formula of “transubstantiation” in the Eucharist while Mary had to carry full term Jesus Christ for 9 months in her human womb http://stella0maris.blogspot.com/
It is unbelievable how the Roman Catholic Church can get away with crimes and not be punished with true justice - like all other lay people who are caught in grievous crimes. Only in the Catholic Church can one commit crimes of Biblical Proportions and be forgiven instantly in the Sacrament of Confession. See our article, 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

Benedict XVI the Pollyanna Pope
A Pollyanna is a person regarded as being foolishly or blindly optimistic. Benedict XVI is the Pollyanna Pope foolishly and blindly optimistic of the defiled and pedophiliac Roman Catholic Church that is no longer “holy”. See our article in our sister weblog The John Paul II Millstone “The Roman Catholic Church is no longer « Holy ». All Catholic churches, sacristies, rectories are not «holy» but potential priestly pedophile places" http://jp2m.blogspot.com/2010/07/roman-catholic-church-is-no-longer-holy.html
Benedict XVI is the Pollyanna Pope who says that the “Church Is Young and Joyful” to make the whole world forget that the John Paul II Pedophile Priests Army existed
in the last quarter of the 20th century – so that he can go ahead and beatify and canonize John Paul II as soon as possible (before he dies as pope)

Pope Rejects Resignations of Irish Bishops Accused in Sex Abuse Crisis
If Pope Benedict XVI is trying to dig the Catholic Church out of the sex abuse scandal, he only seems to be making the hole deeper.
That's the apparent consensus after it was reported that the pope has rejected the resignations of two bishops in Ireland who asked to quit last December after they were named in an independent report for their lack of diligence and action in the country's awful history of the sexual and physical abuse of children by priests.
The bishops, Eamonn Walsh and Raymond Field, are auxiliary, or assistant bishops, to Archbishop Diarmuid Martin of Dublin, who was sent to Dublin to clean up the abuse mess. Martin, who was profiled by PoliticsDaily earlier this year, had pushed Walsh and Field to resign, which they did in Christmas Eve letters to the pope.
Two other bishops criticized in the government's report on church abuse -- Bishop Donal Murray and Bishop Jim Moriarty -- have had offers of resignation accepted by the Vatican. A fifth bishop named in the report, Bishop Martin Drennan of Galway, has resisted calls for his resignation.
The Vatican's rejection of the resignations of Walsh and Field is seen as a blow to Martin's efforts.
"The Vatican [was] not impressed with the way Diarmuid Martin went on PrimeTime [an Irish television news program] and called on other bishops to be accountable," Garry O'Sullivan, editor of the Irish Catholic newspaper in Dublin, told The Associated Press. "It's not the way business is done in Rome."
The Irish Catholic first obtained a copy of a letter Martin sent to priests, in which he said the Vatican decided that the bishops would remain in office but would be "assigned revised responsibilities within the diocese." Neither Archbishop Martin nor the auxiliaries would comment or detail what those new responsibilities would entail.
Other analysts suggested that behind the Vatican's rejection was the fear of a "domino effect" in which any bishop or cardinal implicated in the abuse crisis could be pushed to resign, which is a nightmare scenario to a tradition-minded pope like Benedict XVI.
"In other words, there may still be many Irish bishops with 'mishandling/bureaucratic,' sex abuse skeletons still in the cupboard who would also have to resign," Paddy Agnew wrote in The Irish Times.
That would be fine with sex abuse victims, who were outraged at the decision to reject the resignations.
"So much was expected of the pontiff, and so little was delivered," said John Kelly, leader of Survivors of Child Abuse, an Irish advocacy group. "The pope said that priests and bishops needed to surrender themselves to the demands of justice. Here were two of many who did surrender themselves -- and they've been refused," Kelly said. "That sends out a signal that there is to be no change, no closure for victims and no accountability."
Abuse survivor Marie Collins also said she was "at a loss" and "past being angry."
The church was not "going to be accountable or take responsibility." She felt "people, survivors in particular, are also entitled to an explanation as to why Bishop Moriarty's resignation was accepted but Bishop Walsh's and Bishop Field's were not."
In the United States, SNAP, or The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, chastised Benedict for "rubbing more salt into the already deep and still fresh wounds of thousands of child sex abuse victims and millions of betrayed Catholics."
Media reaction was blistering as well.
Writing in The Herald of Ireland, Terry Prone accused the Vatican of "arrogance." He said the way the news was communicated was typical of the Vatican, and said that "somewhere along the line, the officer class in the Catholic Church decided they no longer needed to explain and persuade and motivate. They could just tell the faithful. Or not tell them, as in this case."
"Latest Papal diktat spells doom for people's church" ran the headline in John Cooney's column in the Irish Independent, while Kevin Clarke, writing on the blog of America magazine, a leading Catholic weekly in the United States, searched for an explanation.
"Could the Curia [the pope's advisors] truly be so oblivious to the anger and frustration of average Catholics worldwide trying to make sense of the church's response to years of sexual abuse by clergy on Catholic children?" Clarke asked. "It doesn't seem possible."
For many, it now seems more than possible, but highly probable.
