  1. Looks like they may finally be getting the message that pedophile rape isn’t such a nice thing after all. We’ll see.

    (Gasp!) SAY it isn’t SO –!

    BTW, I hear the Pope is ailing – since he appears to be the first Pope in ages seemingly intent on making actual reforms, I would suggest checking his blood for poison, preferably pre-postmortem.

  3. Link to telegraph asks you to join up, maybe use a different link. I did find the story in the end.

    Our local priest (not mine, I add quickly) was an abuser. Did it stop my neighbours believing?

      They never stop to believe. In fact for most people these reports have always been unreal.

      • It was most strange. The teen went on church youth trips, told us about it all, and continued to go to church. The priest in question was well known about locally. Got sidelined in the end, as I remember.

        Not only do they mess with your head, they mess with your body. Very bad news.

          Yes very sad, they mess with you completely if they get the chance

            But still, the whole issue of authority and abuse and fear and power is one that needs to be totally got rid of.

            Strange what religion and fear can do to your average bright fellow.
            Fear for most people is a great motivation to remain in church

  4. This pope is really shaking up the church. I wonder if the diehards are plotting against him.

    Did anyone else notice they referred to him as “the Pole?” Doesn’t that seem a bit odd?

  6. As long as it has NOTHING to do with children I kind of like the word defrocking. Don’t think I have ever written it……how’s that for random Mak : )) hehe

  7. “Sex scandals significantly weaken the Church’s moral credibility,”

    Ya think? So do the other issues they mentioned and didn’t mention — gender inequality, anti-contraception, anti-choice, anti-divorce, hording the goods, exorcism, and on and on. The RCC is and has been a malignant cancer to the body of humanity.

    Defrocked? While that may hold some meaning for a religious type, it seems a tad weak to me. How about denutted? Or depeckered? Or perhaps de- allowed to walk the streets freely?

    This POS will just become an insurance or used car salesman, and is free to pander to his urges on the street. My mind sees a white van with “free candy” on the side.

    How is it exactly, if a priest diddles kids he gets defrocked…and a regular (though somewhat twisted) Joe gets 20 years in a prison that has “special” treatment for kiddie fuckers?

    I suppose a defrocking is at least preferable to moving them to another town to abuse more kids, but damn. Being a priest seems like having a get out of jail free card to me.

      That is spot on, SD. The RCC has a “special” insurance policy to cover them for lawsuits againsts their kiddie fucker priests. That says it all.

      I don’t know.
      Maybe they will hand him over to secular authorities after the defrock him.

    Noticeably absent from all of this are the Vatican pronouncements stating its now instituted policy changes that include reporting offenders to the legal authorities and providing restitution to the victims themselves.

    Perhaps the best way to drive that message home is via several thousand class action lawsuits. In the words of Blu Cantrell:

    When your priests wanna get buckwild
    Just go back and Hit ‘Em Up Style
    Put your hands on their cash
    And spend it to the last dime
    For all the hard times

    Excellent timing, My Nairobi brother! Here in the US, today it was announced that the Archbishop of Minnesota is under investigation for physically abusing priests, seminarians and others (undetermined ages). Of course, none of us are surprised, are we? Much love and naked hugs! 🙂
