Questions to the Pope on the Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church about Rape
Rape is the forcible violation of the sexual intimacy of another person. It does injury to justice and charity. Rape deeply wounds the respect, freedom, and physical and moral integrity to which every person has a right. It causes grave damage that can mark the victim for life. It is always an intrinsically evil act. Graver still is the rape of children committed by parents (incest) or those responsible for the education of the children entrusted to them.
So Pope Benedict I have a couple of questions for you.
1. If you accept the catechism statement on rape, then why have you not turned over the priests who have raped the children of the Roman Catholic Church to the police for prosecution to the fullest extent the law allows? Why did you allow two priest whom you knew to be pedophiles to continue in the priesthood, to rape even more children, instead of doing what you are morally and legally obligated to do and turned them into the police for prosecution? Why did you not immediately excommunicate these two priests for their crimes against the children of the Roman Catholic Church?
2. Why must victims of priest sexual abuse sign non disclosure forms upon pain of excommunication from the Roman Catholic Church and must swear to secrecy under the Crimen Sollicitationis? Why must all priests and witnesses have to sign oaths of secrecy upon pains of being excommunicated from the church?
3. Why are not all the priests who raped children, the leaders who have covered up their actions not been excommunicated from the church for their crimes against the children of the church and the laws of the land? Why have these priests and leaders continued to be in this church for their crimes against the children of the church? Why are they not allowed to be prosecuted to the fullest extent the law allows?
4. Why do you Pope Benedict, the priests who raped us, the leaders who covered this up believe you are above man’s laws? Does not your Jesus Christ even demand you submit to man’s laws in relations to crimes committed? Your priests raped us children, you and your leaders covered it up and yet you demand not to be given justice for your crimes against humanity and the children of the church because you are religious leaders and should not be prosecuted by the law? How can you call yourself a man of God, Jesus Christ and a leader of the church, yet set a poor example in the children seeking justice against this church for the crimes your priests and leaders perpetrated against us by denying justice to us victims? If you are a true man of God, then submit yourself for justice for your role in covering up the two priests who raped children.
See Pope Benedict, you would excommunicate a homosexual, an adulterer, and many others at the drop of the hat, but you will not excommunicate your own priests and leaders who raped children and covered this up.
Is it no wonder why I call you His Unholiness the Papal Bullshitter?
