Pope Benedict Admits To Giving False Testimony In German Sex Abuse Case.
https://www.huffpost.com/entry/pope-benedict-false-testimony-sex-abuse_n_61ef0276e4b03add23fd0357

"A report from law firm Westpfahl Spilker Wastl on sexual abuse in Germany’s Munich diocese criticizes the way the former pope, whose original name is Joseph Ratzinger, handled four cases of sexual abuse by priests in the 1970s and 1980s when he was archbishop there. The report was commissioned by the archdiocese to investigate sexual abuse between 1945-2019."

I think he was just following god's law.  After all, if god did not want his right hand helpers to molest children, he would not have provided them.  Christians love to flaunt their 'morality' at every turn.  And all popes are infallible. 
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?<br />Then he is not omnipotent,<br />Is he able but not willing?<br />Then whence cometh evil?<br />Is he neither able or willing?<br />Then why call him god?

He just needs to confess. OK, there, say 3 Hail Mary's, all is good!

and make sure he uses his rosary--which is not an idol.

Greatest I am

I might have mentioned how peeved I get when reading of a pedophile case where a bargain is struck between the victims parents and the authorities who victimize the child yet again by making his or her rape into a pay for play by those in charge.

There should be a crime against such injustice.

If I had a rocket launcher, some son of a bitch would die.

When I read the article about this the other day, I noticed the shock was gone.  It doesn't seem like anything will ever happen to change the church, but then churches (The Catholic Church is the worst, but only because it has the longest record), resist change, even after centuries of being proven wrong.  It seems to be part of the foundation of religion.  Religion is the biggest hoax every conceived by man, but that's another topic and I'm drifting off course.

Not the parents, but Virginia Giuffre has agreed to an out of court settlement with Prince Andrew.

Justice for sale or rent.

And we think ourselves so advanced.

To be fair this was a civil suit. The only thing ever at stake was money.

I was thinking more og how the pedophile priests victimize their initial victim with the help of parents who set a price to make the crime a pay for sex issue and turn our victim into a prostitute.

In such cases, for sure there are more issues than money.

Mostly issues that society is guilty of.
