– A Special Report
“We must ask ourselves what was wrong in our proclamation, in our whole way of living the Christian life,” says Benedict XVI (Joseph Alois Ratzinger), in a traditional end-of-the year address to cardinals and bishops at the Vatican, 20 December 2010. He rushes to add that as late as the 1970s, pedophilia was not considered an absolute evil. Pedophilia, the sexual rape of children, was not a crime, says Pope Benedict XVI. He states that in 2010, rape allegations within the ranks of Catholic clergy have reached “unimaginable dimension.”
Pope John Paul II oversaw rife infestation of child rapists among the Vatican clergy and priesthood.
Note that the Vatican considers cardinals princes of the Church. Groer is accused of abusing approximately 2,000 young males.
