“The Vatican instructed Catholic bishops around the world to cover up cases of sexual abuse or risk being thrown out of the Church.
The Observer has obtained a 40-year-old confidential document from the secret Vatican archive which lawyers are calling a ‘blueprint for deception and concealment’. One British lawyer acting for Church child abuse victims has described it as ‘explosive’.
…the Catholic hierarchy in California decided to cut a deal with a group who most Catholics don’t really consider a religion, but, when it comes to gay bashing, nothing is off-limits. The Catholics don’t have much spare cash these days because they’ve spent hundreds of millions to settle sex abuse cases….a reporter in Idaho Falls, Idaho…busted open a scandal involving sex abuse, the Boy Scouts and the Mormons. Apparently, the Mormons pretty much control the Boy Scouts in several Western states. The perp involved in the case molested a lot of young kids and a lot of adults in the Boy Scouts and the Mormon Church knew what was going on and did nothing to stop it. In fact, they kept putting the perp in positions where he was in contact with kids. They went to great lengths to cover it up.
The Vatican is drawing criticism from gay rights groups and newspapers editorials after Archbishop Celestino Migliore, the Vatican’s permanent observer to the United Nations, told a French Catholic news service that the Vatican opposes “a proposed U.N. resolution calling on governments worldwide to de-criminalise homosexuality.” Migliore claimed that the resolution “would create new and implacable discriminations” against opponents of same-sex marriage.
The resolution has nothing to do with marriage. It’s aimed, in part, at nations that kill gays. Killing gays. How Christian. That should make the Prada wearing Pope very proud.
The Catholics are now in some weird competition with their new friends, the Mormons, to see which church can bash gays more. Of course, both churches should spend more time preventing young children from being molested by church leaders, but that’s another story.
So those are two of the biggest religions in the world, right?
And they say Islam is backwards…
