: Archbishop Ratzinger decided to keep the Catholic pedophile filth to himself
True or False?This Pope had direct knowledge of and a hand in moving pedophile priests around the world in order to avoid prosecution and justice for the victims.
True or False?This piece of shit chose his Institution's legacy over protecting innocent life.
Aside from the "piece of shit comment" True or False?He will rot in Hell if Catholic dogma is true.
True or False? (Of course, there is a lot of child rape in the Bible, so that
may actually be Church dogma.)But he'll probably be fine since Theists just make it all up as they go along.
True or False. Hint: True.
Looks rational to me. And before you go all "your definition of rational must be..."
Based on or in accordance with reason or logic
Did the Pope cover up, or turn a blind eye to, priestly sexual abuse while he was Archbishop and possibly bishop? Yes.
Did he move priests around to avoid prosecution? Yes.
Did he choose protecting the RCC versus morality and ethics? Yes.
If Christian dogma is true, does this violate Jesus' teachings about righteousness? Yes.
Of course, the big Christian loophole is all you have to do is ask to be absolved of your sins and your in. So you can pretty much do whatever you want in life and ask forgiveness on your death bed and you'll be fine. I'm sure as Pope, Benedict knows this already and may be counting on it. Heck, I'd go so far as to say all priests know this already and are counting on it.
