Catholic Pope drawn into pedophilia controversy.

Sexual abuse of young boys by hundreds of US Catholic priests now has a mirror image in Europe where one by one, sexually abused men have been coming forward and implicating priests, bishops and archbishops in country after country.

The Catholic church in Europe is clearly now in a damage control mode, doing everything possible to isolate the current Pope from illicit sexual activities between priests in his diocese and dozens of young boys prior to his elevation to the highest position in the church.  It is curious how quickly others have fallen on their sword to prevent damage to the Roman Pope’s reputation and the stability of the papal office.

As was the case in the US and Latin America, the root cause for the emerging European problem is the same – church dogma which prevents priests from marrying and thus opening the door to illicit sexual activities with innocent boys who are intimidated or coerced by the office of the priest.

Again, Catholic “psychologists” have quickly offered that homosexuality and sexual predatory activities within the priesthood are no more prevalent than  in the heterosexual community outside of the priesthood.  Again, others in the Vatican are falling on their sword in droves to prevent damage to the Magesterium and its reconstruction of biblical commands regarding the priesthood and related homosexual activities.

The Bible clearly states in no uncertain terms in Matthew 18:6

“…But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”

These are words that may have been cut out of the Catholic bible and theology – otherwise this type of mistreatment and devastation of youth would not be continuing in thousands of cases worldwide.

What do you think?
