Pedophile-Enabling Pope Outraged Over Raid Of Bishops' Meeting

By Robert Paul Reyes


"Pope Benedict XVI criticised Sunday the `deplorable methods` of Belgian police who raided a bishops` meeting as part of a paedophilia probe, as Brussels accused the Vatican of over-reacting.

The pontiff`s criticism of the search came in a message of support to Brussels-Malines Archbishop Andre-Joseph Leonard, the head of the Belgian bishops` conference.

The raids on Thursday came amid fresh claims of child abuse by members of the clergy."-AFP

If the authorities want to nab homegrown terrorists they will raid a meeting of a Christian militia, and if they want to capture pedophiles they will raid a Catholic bishops` meeting.

Instead of being outraged over the raid of the bishops` meeting, the Pope should be outraged over the thousands of Catholic priests who molest and rape young boys.

When he was a cardinal the pope protected and enabled pedophiles, it should come as no surprise to anyone that the pontiff takes umbrage when the authorities investigate pedophilia in the Roman Catholic Church.

Pedophile clergy shouldn`t have refuge in Roman Catholic Churches, would to God that the American authorities followed the example of the Belgians and turned every Roman Catholic church upside down.

The Vatican doesn`t take the problem of pedophile priests seriously, it`s incumbent upon law enforcement officials to protect our children.
