-Thank you Dust Storm for taking the time to post this. I thought I remembered this story, but was too lazy to dig it up. Especially for someone who'll just ignore it anyway.
No Problem. I dont have the time nor the inclination to deal with the baffoons left in here. Most of them are low on the intellectual scale and seemingly incapable of being able to view or speak in any kind of rational, objective, or truthful manner. Preston, LTM, Guest, the Confrinters, ox. LOL these people are completely nuts. Marge lights up and chimes in on occasion. They have ignored everything and provided no rebuttal of substance.
Basically the Vatican did not even start receiving information until 2001. Yet one would think all then Cardinal Ratziner had to do was read every letter that came in from around the world. In the case discussed here it was tercione who responded and the NY times, CNN and others who recirculated it were throughly debunked. Not one news source even inquired with any member of the church nor those on the trial panel to verify anything. It was reporting of the worst kind and puts them in tabloid trash credibility. They went quiet. More Dan Rather type stuff. lol Pope Benedict did alot not the least of which is ordering investigations and studies and implementing preventative measures. The bottom line is some members of the church failed greatly. The scope of the problem and dealing with it was faulty. However those who pretend they have no problems in their churches or schools and who just point fingers are also guilty of doing nothing and perpetuating a myth that it is a uniquely Catholic issue. The Church merely because of its size, structure, wealth and records provides a target. Its good to weed out the filth, but its bad to pretend it has, is or was being dealt with in a meaningful manner anywhere. Its always ez to play Monday morning quarterback. No matter what the church does or what we say it will not be enough, it will be excuses, it will be justying. blah blah blah. If these people had the answers it wouldnt still be a worldwide problem. Lots of people throwing rocks from Glass houses with no knowledge of what was done or happened or any real concern for children. Sad display. However Kudos to the Protestants who have taken the time to learn and even emulate the churches actions.
Dust Storm:... the Vatican did not even start receiving information until 2001.
LOL! there are ARCHIVES in the Vatican dating back CENTURIES on the child rapists harbored by your church.
But YOU choose to ignore the obvious - buffoon, indeed.
And when you choose to IGNORE Christ Jesus himself, "Call no man your father," over the pope insisting that you do .. that is where you go terribly wrong.
