Another torpedo of admission has blown the hull of the Vatican.
The National Catholic Register reports, “…a former apostolic nuncio to the United States has accused several senior prelates of complicity in covering up Archbishop Theodore McCarrick’s allegations of sexual abuse, and has claimed that Pope Francis knew about sanctions imposed on then-Cardinal McCarrick by Pope Benedict XVI but chose to repeal them.”
It had been 39 years since the Pope had visited Ireland.
Pope Francis addressed the outrage that unfortunately defines the modern Catholic Church after decades of sexual abuse of children. But many heard a hollow broken record playing since reports of abuse began emerging from Ireland in the 1980’s.
It appears no amount of rehabilitation will ever stop this juggernaut of sanctioned child sexual abuse. In my opinion, the Catholic Church system as it is – a pedophile empowerment system – should not be allowed to continue. Why should it? How could anyone abuse a child and claim to follow the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth?
