Voiceless Victim

A survivor of clergy child sexual abuse speaks out for those who can't speak for themselves

Pope’s butler faces jail, unlike rapists and their protectors

In yet a further example of pernicious Vatican hypocrisy, the Pope’s butler, Paolo Gabriele, faces trial and very likely jail for the crime of revealing the truth about the corruption and infighting endemic amongst the ‘holy’ men who inhabit the Vatican.

It is indeed encouraging to know that the Vatican is capable of arresting, imprisoning, and convicting wrong doers.

Unfortunately, in the upside down world of Vatican morals, truth is considered a crime, while those who rape, or enable and cover-up the rape of little children, are protected and rewarded.

There are plenty of criminals hiding out in the Vatican who should be occupying a cell rather than a palace.

Such as Cardinal Bernard Law, described by the 2003 Report of the Office of the Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts into the Sexual Abuse of Children in Law’s former Archdiocese of Boston as bearing ultimate responsibility for an institutional acceptance of the criminal sexual abuse of children and a massive and pervasive failure of leadership, and for placing huge numbers of children at obvious and known risk of sexual assault. Which did indeed result in the rape of innocent children on a truly horrific scale.

For his crimes, instead of jail and a trial like Gabriele, Law has been offered a safe refuge from justice, and been accorded positions of enormous power and respect. And, on his 80th birthday, Law was publicly feted at great expense and treated as a hero and inspiration to all.

We can only hope such rewards do not encourage too many to follow in his insidious footsteps.

If the Vatican insists on behaving like an outlaw state, harbouring fugitives from international justice and obstructing the lawful operation of local law enforcement in sovereign countries throughout the world, can we at least be honest enough to treat it like one.

Paolo Gabriele was trying to expose the criminality, the twisted immorality, the lies and hypocrisy of a obsessively secretive institution that aims to control the world, commands that you believe every word they utter without a shred of proof, and insists they are infallible, despite the sheer impossibility of the concept itself, and the mountains of evidence to the contrary.

He was trying to expose the fact that many church leaders are supremely evil men posing as godlike beings. That they are allergic to honesty. That they function through coercion, manipulation of the gullible, the trading of influence and wealth, and unending deceit.

We should not kiss the rings of the Princes of the church, and grovellingly hand over tax breaks, inequitable political influence, undeserved respect and a free pass to commit crimes against humanity.

We should not surrender our hearts and our brains every time they open their mouths.

Not if we, and our children, want to consider ourselves free and independent.

    From the “get go”, what could we expect from the place called the Vat-i-can..???????..It’s a huge “VAT” of evil! THE “I” inbetween is needed to put this evil in a “CAN”! … The” I” in between is .”US!”. ” I ” must do somthing and not put it off, to some one else! “:I” is the Keybword. God calls HIMSELF, THE MIGHTY” I AM.” “WHO WAS AND WHO IS AND WHO IS TO COME”. WHO DOES HE COME FOR ????? “I” AM THE ONE HE COMES FOR ….The one who loves HIM and has a relationship with HIM! HE knows ME as HIS OWN…….GOD IS GIVING US A RESPONSIBILITY TO DO SOMTHING……. “NOW”……. OR FACE THE CONSEQUENCES OF OUR NON- ACTION..

    Well of course the Pope’s butler was imprisoned! He was waaaay too close to the Pope and could potentially have revealed the Pope’s own dirty little crimes against children, even if only in his support of child molestation. I mean, duh!
