U.N. Jurist Calls for Pope to be Tried in International Court - By Matt Cover -

( – A United Nations jurist and former war crimes judge has called for the “full weight” of international law to be brought against Pope Benedict XVI because of sexual abuse cases involving some Catholic priests, calling into question the Vatican’s claim that the pope is immune from legal proceedings because he is a head of state.  Photo

The judge, British human rights lawyer Geoffrey Robertson, is currently a member of the U.N. Internal Justice Council and a former appellate judge on the U.N Special Court for Sierra Leone. Robertson said that the Vatican “should feel the full weight of international law” in an April 2 commentary in Britain’s The Guardian.

“[T]he Holy See can no longer ignore international law, which now counts the widespread or systematic sexual abuse of children as a crime against humanity,” Robertson wrote. “The anomalous claim of the Vatican to be a state – and of the pope to be head of state and hence immune from legal action – cannot stand up to scrutiny.” Read more - By Matt Cover -

Important note: 
No disrespect meant to Pope Benedict XVI or the hierarchy,
 the one and only concern is the safety and well-being of children.
Kids Are Being Hurt!!!

Someday, maybe, there will exist a well-informed,
well-considered, and yet fervent public conviction
that the most deadly of all possible sins
is the mutilation of a child's spirit.

…whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. Matthew 18:6
