Paedophile Priests compared to Holocaust victims by the Vatican

3 04 2010

As part of a Good Friday sermon the Pope’s personal preacher, Rev. Raniero Cantalamessa, likened the  ” accusations against the pope and the church in the sex abuse scandal to “collective violence” suffered by the Jews.”  he then went onto say that a Jewish friend had said that the accusations reminded him of the more shameful elements of Anti-Semitism.

You can view the full story from AP here.

Now I don’t know how anyone else feels about this but personally I can’t help but think what the fuck are they on about, seriously.

How the fuck can you say that people accusing members of the clergy of sexual abuse and paedophilia is comparable with the imprisonment, torture and and genocide of over 6 million people.

For starters, these aren’t empty allegations; i they had all proven to be false they would have a point, it would be seriously stretching things but they would have a point, just. But they don’t.

The church and the Pope have been issuing apologies lef, right and centre for destroying the lives of thousands; all this sermon does is completely invalidate those apologies and make it look like the church is the victim.

Maybe if the Catholic Church didn’t want to be on the receiving end of these allegations they shouldn’t have covered up these abuse cases and should have done something about it at the time as opposed to brushing it under the carpet and hoping it would all go away.

Maybe there is something that I am missing here, maybe what we aren’t being told by the media is that each time a new allegation is made secret service police are bursting into churches, rounding up Priests an shipping them off to death camps…
