Belgium – Police that raided the offices, homes, and even one tomb in an investigation of child sex abuse in the Catholic church in Belgium are now looking into reports that witnesses and magistrates related to the case were threatened.
According to the BBC, several people who alerted or helped the police in the cases have been receiving death threats from unreleased sources.
The cases themselves go back generations, and are part of a wider look at widespread pedophilia and child rape within the Catholic Church. A part of that investigation is the web of secrecy, in which many priests were protected, and allowed to abuse young children for years.
One case saw an Australian pedophile teacher in a Catholic school, who held the title of priest, raping children as young as five for years under the direct knowledge of staff.

A former youth minister for the United Methodist Church of Whitefish Bay pleaded no contest Thursday to a charge that he exposed himself to a 17-year-old boy who spent the night with him at his congregation-owned home last August.
The youth minister, Kurt Danskin, 35, also was charged earlier this week in Waukesha County with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor, in connection with allegations that he had sent the same boy sexually explicit e-mails sometime before May 2001, according to court records. He is to appear in court Aug. 14 on that charge.
Although the allegations came to light last fall, the youth minister was not fired from the Whitefish Bay church until Feb. 13, when church officials were told that the minister was being investigated by the Waukesha County district attorney's office in connection with he e-mail incident.
The exposure happened Aug. 22 at a church-owned home in the 800 block of E. Glen Ave. in Whitefish Bay. That crime, a misdemeanor, carries a fine of up to $10,000 and nine months in jail. Danskin will be sentenced by Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Jeffrey Conen on Aug. 22.
The pastor of the Whitefish Bay church, Richard Jones, said about 100 children in the seventh- through 12th-grade youth program and their parents met with congregational leadership after Danskin left earlier this year.
"There are no allegations involving any persons at our church," Jones said at that time. "The allegation is from a 17-year-old who was visiting Kurt. He is not a member of our church. He has nothing to do with our church."
Jones said Danskin moved from the home after he was fired in February.
The Whitefish Bay church is the largest United Methodist congregation in the state.
The Waukesha County incident occurred when Danskin worked for Emmanuel Community United Methodist Church in Menomonee Falls, according to the Waukesha County complaint, filed this week. Danskin worked there for six years before moving to the Whitefish Bay church in July 2001.
On Nov. 5, Menomonee Falls police asked the Waukesha County district attorney's office to consider issuing charges against Danskin of exposing a child to harmful materials, said Lt. Jim Konopacki.
The Waukesha County complaint alleges the youth opened the sexually explicit e-mails on computers at Menomonee Falls High School, where he was a student. The youth told authorities that his home computer did not have Internet or e-mail access.
The Rev. Wes Falk, pastor of the Menomonee Falls church, said he contacted police and Bishop Sharon Zimmerman Rader after "inappropriate material" was found after Danskin left the church for Whitefish Bay.

Let's see the group that has been accused of molesting children blames it on the Jews and the tinfoil hat commando who will blame anything he can possibly think of on the Jews agrees that it must be the Jews.
Couple credible sources there.
Once again nice try chump!

On April 10, the New York Times—the apparent center of this "planned campaign"—reprinted a copy of a letter personally signed by Ratzinger in 1985. The letter urged lenience in the case of the Rev. Stephen Kiesle, who had tied up and sexually tormented two small boys on church property in California. Kiesle's superiors had written to Ratzinger's office in Rome, beseeching him to remove the criminal from the priesthood. The man who is now his holiness the pope was full of urgent moral advice in response. "The good of the Universal Church," he wrote, should be uppermost in the mind. It should be understood that "particularly regarding the young age" of Father Kiesle, there might be great "detriment" caused "within the community of Christ's faithful" if he were to be removed. The good father was then aged 38. His victims—not that their tender ages of 11 and 13 seem to have mattered—were children. In the ensuing decades, Kiesle went on to ruin the lives of several more children and was finally jailed by the secular authorities on a felony molestation charge in 2004. All this might have been avoided if he had been handed over to justice right away and if the Oakland diocese had called the police rather than written to the office in Rome where it was Ratzinger's job to muffle and suppress such distressing questions.
Contrast this to the even more appalling case of the school for deaf children in Wisconsin where the Rev. Lawrence Murphy was allowed unhindered access to more than 200 unusually defenseless victims. Again the same pattern: repeated petitions from the local diocese to have the criminal "unfrocked" (an odd term when you think about it) met with stony indifference from Ratzinger's tightly run bureaucracy. Finally a begging letter to Ratzinger from the filthy Father Murphy himself, complaining of the frailty of his health and begging to be buried with full priestly honors, in his frock. Which he was. At last, a human plea not falling on deaf ears!(You should pardon the expression.)

So in one case a child rapist escaped judgment and became an enabled reoffender because he was too young. In the next, a child rapist was sheltered after a career of sex torture of disabled children because he was too old! Such compassion.
It must be noted, also, that all the letters from diocese to Ratzinger and from Ratzinger to diocese were concerned only with one question: Can this hurt Holy Mother Church? It was as if the children were irrelevant or inconvenient (as with the case of the raped boys in Ireland forced to sign confidentiality agreements by the man who is still the country's cardinal). Note, next, that there was a written, enforced, and consistent policy of avoiding contact with the law. And note, finally, that there was a preconceived Ratzinger propaganda program of blaming the press if any of the criminal conduct or obstruction of justice ever became known.
