Vatican Rejects Irish Criticism Over Child Sex Abuse – 9311
(CNN) -- The Vatican has rejected criticism that church leaders sought to cover up extensive abuse of young people by priests in Ireland, in a lengthy statement sent to the Irish government Saturday.
The Vatican response follows a biting attack by Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny in the wake of the Cloyne report, published in July, which investigated abuses in the diocese of Cloyne, near the southern city of Cork…
…Released July 13, the 421-page report into the handling of abuses in the diocese of Cloyne -- near the southern city of Cork -- demolished claims by the Catholic Church in Ireland that policies it put in place in 1996 had enabled it to get a handle on the problem…

Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices—mint, dill and cumin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law—justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former.  You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel. Matthew 24: 23-24

Taoiseach Enda Kenny has said he did not regret his unprecedented attack on the Vatican after it rejected his claims that it tried to frustrate an inquiry into clerical child abuse.
In its formal response to the Government in the wake of the latest church abuse scandal, the Holy See said that it in no way hampered or interfered with the inquiry into abuse cover-ups in the Cloyne diocese.
Mr Kenny launched a blistering attack on the Vatican in the Dáil, claiming that the probe exposed a dysfunctional, elite hierarchy determined to frustrate investigations…

Gilmore dismisses Vatican comments on abuse inquiry – 9511
The Tánaiste today accused the Vatican of missing the point after it rejected claims it had frustrated a State inquiry into clerical abuse.
Speaking while attending a Labour parliamentary party meeting in Co Carlow, Eamon Gilmore said the real issue was the Catholic Church did not deal effectively with paedophile priests.
Amid calls for Taoiseach Enda Kenny to explain why he accused the Vatican of interfering with investigations as recently as three years ago, Mr Gilmore refused to back down. “I think it probably misses the point,” he said.
“There was the most horrific sexual abuse of children perpetrated by clerics. The Catholic Church did not deal with that as it should have dealt with it. Let’s not be distracted. Let’s not miss the point - no less charges were made. The Taoiseach and the Government stand over what was said,” the Minister for Foreign Affairs said…

Abuse Scandal in Germany Edges Closer to Pope – 31210
BERLIN — A widening child sexual abuse inquiry in Europe has landed at the doorstep of Pope Benedict XVI, as a senior church official acknowledged Friday that a German archdiocese made “serious mistakes” in handling an abuse case while the pope served as its archbishop.
The archdiocese said that a priest accused of molesting boys was given therapy in 1980 and later allowed to resume pastoral duties, before committing further abuses and being prosecuted. Pope Benedict, who at the time headed the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising, approved the priest’s transfer for therapy.  A subordinate took full responsibility for allowing the priest to later resume pastoral work, the archdiocese said in a statement…

“…many prefer not to exercise their imaginations at all.
They choose to remain comfortably within the bounds of their own experience,
never troubling to wonder how it would feel to have been born other than they are.
They can refuse to hear screams or to peer inside cages; they can close their minds and hearts to any suffering that does not touch them personally;
 they can refuse to know…
those who choose not to empathise enable real monsters.
For without ever committing an act of outright evil ourselves,
we collude with it,

Benedict XVI Immunity from prosecution –
Truth - Global Child Sexual Abuse Cover-ups - Unresolved

Outrageous! With all the major life threatening crises happening in the world today - Benedict XVI is more concerned about working on his public image. This is complete reenactment of how Benedict XVI, as Cardinal Ratzinger starting in 1981 decided to protect the pubic reputation of the institutional church instead of the safety and well-being of hundreds of thousands of children globally. This alone is an indictment of his 30 some years of deceit and ruthlessness working in the Vatican failing to protect children, by systematically globally covering-up the child sexual abuse, all done with the years of ongoing collusion of the all male hierarchy. 
“This is about the reckless endangerment of children in a calculated, purposeful strategy to protect the institutional Church” - 12/2/09
“…the church must … end its campaign to block the weak and the vulnerable from receiving help to deal with the consequences of criminal sexual abuse.” - A Better Chance at Justice for Abuse Victims – 4/26/10

“…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

What would Jesus do about Benedict XVI’s ongoing years of cover-ups of the global child sexual abuse? Most assuredly - not only would Jesus in his anger make a whip, kicking over tables, shouting that you have made my Father’s House of Prayer into a den of thieves, driving them all out, including the FOX NEWS NETWORK PR – Jesus would also be tying millstones around the deceivers necks and casting into the depths of the sea. This may be why Benedict XVI did not put his faith in Jesus to help him but instead turned away to put his faith into a secular agency - FOX NEWS NETWORK PR.

“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.” Erik Erikson

Vatican blames media for latest scandal – again: “The attempt by the Vatican to blame the media for the leaks is to some degrees a repeat of 2010, when several Vatican officials blamed journalists for fueling the sex abuse scandal that had re-ignited that year.” – 61812

Cardinal Bertone is now using films (Da Vinci Code) to describe the news media reaction to the Vatileaks, as to the business inside the Vatican – like Arsenic and Old Lace” describes Benedict XVI unchallenged false reality that has become his surreal world, an oblivious disregard for the truth about human sexuality that kills innocent people including children.

The film that would unfortunately depict more clearly the Vatican under some 30 years with Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and his exploitation and strategic manipulation of the sincere though a blind loyalty and gullible laity – would be “The Remains of the Day.”

Vatican’s Diplomatic Immunity

No one in the Vatican can go around hurting people – especially children globally and expect to get away with it. The Vatican for most people is considered a place of goodness and love, of truth and honesty or at least a place where it should exist. One by one, over the last 30 some years, globally people have been disillusioned to find that the Vatican quite the opposite of God’s goodness and love. It has greatly eroded the high esteem and regard that people once had for the Vatican. What people have discovered that those in the Vatican are able to get away with their continuous dishonestly and violence, because of their diplomatic immunity. It is the over use of their diplomatic immunity that the scandal of the decades of the child sexual abuse cover-ups are kept alive and festering, because the truth remain unresolved. 

Benedict XVI’s Global Child Sexual Abuse Cover-ups

Benedict XVI’s unending obsessive attempts to shift the blame for the child sexual abuse onto gay priests, thereby implicitly implicating all homosexuals, has been futile, because it has been effectively demonstrated that he does not have the global authoritative backing of science or scripture scholars and theologians. It therefore invalidates Benedict XVI insistence that homosexuality is intrinsically disordered and no longer can it be considered authentic Church teachings, because it is not based in truth.  The Vatican antigay teachings are unsubstantiated just like it was for Galileo. In fact, such erroneous antigay teachings has been proven to perpetuated social environments that cause life threatening psychological harm and including for many physical violence to children as young as 4 and 5 years old who grow up to be gay and are raised in these hostile antigay social environments, globally. Such devastating harm kills tremendous amounts of human potential and motivation globally that could otherwise be used to find cures for illnesses, helping to promote and make peace in the world and overall creating a better world for all in which to live. All the Vatican’s antigay teachings need for the safety and the future well-being of innocent children globally, they need to be renounced.

President of the United States
Vice President of the United States
United States Congress

50 United States Governors 
Dear -- --------, 
My name is Fr. Marty Kurylowicz, a Roman Catholic priest from the Diocese of Grand Rapids, Michigan ordained June 16, 1979.  
In March 1997, after attending a National Symposium of the New Ways Ministry that was held in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, I learned that children as young as 4 and 5 years of age know that they are different. This feeling "different" is only identified in their adult years as being gay. However, the harmful influence of antigay social and religious norms -- in particular, for Catholics, the Vatican’s unsubstantiated antigay teachings -- are severe and last throughout a child’s lifetime.  
The harmful effects are not isolated only to these children who grow up to be gay, but also affect their families, siblings, friends and anyone whom they might consider special in their lives. They are a prescribed societal sentence of implicit isolation, which place at risk of suicide so many innocent adolescents and young adults. They stifle an enormous amount of human potential in the world that otherwise could be put to use for finding cures for diseases, offering better ways of maintaining peace among people and improving the quality of life for everyone in the world.
Gay Marriage - “SEPARATION BETWEEN CHURCH AND STATE” Does Not Give Churches Or Benedict XVI - The Freedom To Abuse Children or Adults. July 2010 - By Fr. Marty Kurylowicz

The authoritative substantiated facts referred to above equally negates Benedict XVI’s obsessive condemnation of gay marriage. Instead it clearly focuses in on Benedict XVI’s homophobia, as well as, that of the many of hierarchy.  And like with so many public figures who outwardly continuously to fiercely condemned homosexuality they were found to be involved sexually in homosexual relationships, the same was found to be true about the Vatican.

Well-informed Conscience & Gay Marriage

Most Catholics cannot in good conscience blindly follow Benedict XVI in his obsessive condemnation of gay marriage, mainly because he has absolutely no substantiated facts to support his position. Catholic Church teachings need to be based upon truth and Catholics know that they are responsible to acquire a well-informed conscience before acting.  In the USA, Catholics governors, along with local and national politicians have taken great risk to courageously champion the cause of gay marriage.  In June 2011, New York State led by Governor Andrew Cuomo, in spite of the Vatican’s attempts to publically attack his character and Archbishop Dolan’s attempts to pressure and threaten him with the lost of the Catholic vote, Gov. Cuomo managed to get the support to have gay marriage legalized. In 2012, Washington State and Maryland both led by catholic governors moved to legalize gay marriage. Finally, in May 2012, USA Vice president Joe Biden publically announced his support for gay marriage. Shortly afterwards, in a most surprising unprecedented act, USA President Barack Obama announced his support for gay marriage. President Obama was also pressured and threatened by the US Catholic Bishops and the Vatican not to support gay marriage. President Obama moved to support and protect religious freedom in the USA but not tyranny in religion.

Benedict XVI Lost Credibility
- Child Sexual Abuse Cover-ups -
& Fox News PR

Benedict XVI and the hierarchy have lost credibility due to their continuous secrecy about their responsibility for the cover-ups of the child sexual abuse globally and their constant attempts to explicitly and implicitly against known authoritative data to shift the blame onto gay priests. After 30 years, of the misuse of power, silencing catholic social justice, in particular the authoritative research on homosexual orientation as being a part of normal human development that it is found in all of nature, and the continuous cover-ups of the child sexual abuse, as well as, the “character assassinations” of those who challenge, oppose, or threaten to expose the truth, Benedict XVI’s chickens globally have been coming home to roost. It seems in desperation, Benedict XVI instead, as he has instructed the faithful to do, to turn to Jesus Christ in prayer and the Holy Eucharist for help and guidance regarding the many scandals plaguing him – he turns to Fox News PR for help and guidance. 

Truth does not need any help from the Fox News network PR. It is only if someone is not sincere in telling the truth that help from Jesus Christ would be useless, instead would need the opposite kind of help, maybe Fox News PR.  A state of the art way of spinning the truth using doublespeak tactics to focus attention as far a way from the truth so as to hide it, if not bury it.
How the Catholic Church could end its sex scandal – March 26, 2010
The Vatican has dealt with the sexual abuse scandals as other institutions would. It should be relying on its Christian values.
…It has worried about its image. It has worried about itself as an institution and about protecting its leaders from public scandal. In so doing, it has made millions of Catholics righteously furious and aggravated every one of its problems.
So instead of going away, the scandal keeps coming back - lately, in a form that seems to challenge Pope Benedict XVI himself. It was sickening to read Thursday's New York Times story reporting that Vatican officials "did not defrock a priest who molested as many as 200 deaf boys, even though several American bishops repeatedly warned them that failure to act on the matter could embarrass the church."
In Germany, the pope's home country, more than 300 victims have come forward in recent weeks, and Chancellor Angela Merkel, whose party has Catholic roots, called the scandal "a major challenge for our society."
The church needs to show it understands the flaws of its own internal culture by examining its own conscience, its own practices, its own reflexes when faced with challenge. As the church rightly teaches, acknowledging the true nature of our sin is the one and only path to redemption and forgiveness…

Benedict XVI has already established substantial precedents of giving vague often mixed messages, which makes it difficult to believe what he says as true. Benedict XVI hiring the Fox News PR is consistent with Benedict XVI past behavior being more concern for the public image of the institution of the church, than for the well-being of the adults and children in the Church.  However, now it seems that his reputation alone is the main concern, because all child sexual cover-ups lead to him, as the evidence presented indicates. “This is about the reckless endangerment of children in a calculated, purposeful strategy to protect the institutional Church” - 12/2/09

Pope [Benedict XVI} 'obstructed' sex abuse inquiry - April 24, 2005
Pope Benedict XVI faced claims last night he had 'obstructed justice' after it emerged he issued an order ensuring the church's investigations into child sex abuse claims be carried out in secret.
The order was made in a confidential letter, obtained by The Observer, which was sent to every Catholic bishop in May 2001.
It asserted the church's right to hold its inquiries behind closed doors and keep the evidence confidential for up to 10 years after the victims reached adulthood. The letter was signed by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, who was elected as John Paul II's successor last week.

God’s fierce Rottweiler – Benedict XVI – Goes Undercover?
Facing 30 years Criminal Accountability
Public Image Makeover Begins – Weak & Poor Administrator
Hires Fox News PR

Since before Christmas 2011, there has been a very subtle shift in the way Benedict XVI had been portrayed in the news, i.e. the use of a cane. There has been very small references made to Benedict XVI advancement in age. These subtle references to his age reached a crescendo just before he leaves on vacation for the summer in July 2012. In a matter of six months Benedict XVI reputation as God’s fierce Rottweiler for the past 30 years has dwindled to quite the opposite. It all seems somehow professionally staged in the news media – an attempt to indirectly give a reason to pardon, to absolve Benedict XVI of his past 30 years questionable behavior and/or an attempt to rewrite the past 30 years exonerating Benedict XVI of any and all wrongdoing – mainly by focusing on his age, his weak leadership abilities and his devotion to his intellectual pursuits. This has a déjà vu feeling to it.  This type of orchestration appears to be the work of superior expertise in PR work. It is a news media spin – that seems faster than the speed of light, seamless, which is frightening, because it is the darkest kind of evil, a total disregard for goodness and love. It is the kind of selfish tampering with human life that will ultimately destroy all human life.  We cannot selfishly tramper with human life without causing great harm and destruction that will eventually come back to claim our lives and all those who supported us, including all those who through their silence, or ignorance or apathy colluded with us.    It reeks of obscure dishonesty, lacking transparency and believability, because the harm to millions of children is to be all forgotten, they just do not matter.  In part the déjà vu quality it has dates back to 2010 in the news media that recalls Benedict XVI as Archbishop Ratzinger, his child sexual abuse scandal 1980 in Munich.

Benedict XVI for the past 3 or 4 months has stopped making public addresses against gay marriage; it would seem that it was meant to help mitigate the public perception of his homophobia. Ireland, June 2012, Benedict XVI refers to the cause of the child sexual abuse as a mystery, however, stated that it is not at the administration level.  Benedict XVI uses the word mystery is quite odd, maybe he no longer feels safe to implicitly imply publically that homosexuality as the cause, because of the public growing knowledge and understanding of the authoritative data stating that there is no connection, as may be indicated by the global overwhelming public shift to support gay marriage. Also, it seems as global support increases for gay marriage so does the global public realization that the accountability for the global child sexual abuse cover-ups lies solely at the administrative level, i.e. Benedict XVI and the hierarchy.

While there have been demands from Irish rank-and-file Catholics, including those who suffered abuse from clergy, for accountability from church hierarchy, Benedict's answer as to why the abuse occurred dealt with the spiritual and not the administrative level.
