Apparently the VATICAN does not realize its own ignorance and liability …

March 21, 2015

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) — A bishop was ordained in southern Chile on Saturday amid riot police and shouting protesters who accuse him of covering up crimes of a mentor the Vatican has sanctioned for abusing young boys.

Hundreds of churchgoers dressed in the black of mourning denounced the 58-year-old Rev. Juan Barros as he took over as bishop of the southern city of Osorno. Many called for him to immediately resign.

Police had to escort Barros out of the church after his ordination, which was attended by only 15 of the country’s 35 bishops and about 20 of the 35 priests in the diocese some 580 miles (930 kilometers) south of Santiago.

While Barros himself is not accused of molestation, at least three victims of sex abuse say he was present when they were molested by the Rev. Fernando Karadima in the 1980s and 90s.

The controversy has been closely watched by victims, advocacy groups and lawmakers as a test of Pope Francis’ promises to crack down on clerical sex abuse.

“I hold the Pope responsible,” said Juan Carlos Cruz, a 51-year-old journalist who is one of the accusers.

“As victims, we had become used to the slaps in the face by the Chilean hierarchy, but we never expected a slap in the face from the Pope,” he told The Associated Press.

Barros had long declined to comment publicly on allegations against him. However he sent a letter to priests in the diocese on Monday saying he did not know about Karadima’s abuses when they happened.

“I never had knowledge of, or could have imagined, the serious abuses that this priest committed against the victims,” said the letter.

The Pope confirmed his decision to appoint Barros after he recently met with him.

More than 1,300 church members in Osorno, along with some 30 priests from the diocese and 51 of Chile’s 120 congress members sent letters to Francis in February urging him to rescind the appointment.

A Vatican investigation found Karadima, one of Chile’s most prominent priests, guilty of sex abuse in 2011 and sentenced the now 84-year-old priest to a cloistered life of “penitence and prayer.”

Criminal charges against him were thrown out because the statute of limitations had expired.

Cruz said that he and another teen boy would lie down on Karadima’s bed, one resting his head at the man’s shoulder, another sitting near his feet. The priest would kiss the boys and grope them, he said, while Barros watched.

ANY LEGAL SYSTEM THAT ALLOWS THIS TO CONTINUE IS SUSPECT!

 

The Roman Pontiff and his Institution and those who support this have shown their true desires, and let’s be up front about this … their desires are NOT the Word of God. This group does not care about the safety of children, and they sure as heck do not care about the will of the Lord God Almighty. They have just informed the world that they favor their titles and their own insidious beliefs over what is truth … what is proper … and what is just.

 

 

—–like we have been saying for quite some time … watch what happens next …

    OFFSPRING of the MALE DOMINION OF CHRISTIANITY FUELED AND FED IN THE HALLS OF THE ELITIST BIG BOYS OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH CLAIMING ITSELF GOD …
    WHY SHOULD ANYONE BE SURPRISED? THIS IS NOTHING NEW … WHERE TORTURE, MURDER AND ABUSE OF ALL FORMS HAVING BEEN THE ROMAN CATHOLIC WAY FOR AGES TO COMMANDEER ITSELF TO POWER …

    Come on, people … Evil continues where it was and is fostered. This mindset is what—housing what? PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT WELL! And the Catholic Church pretends to be a bastion of good works … while its hypocrisy screams so loud …

    take a look inside those …………

      they NEVER understood why Christ was sent. THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE OF HOLY SCRIPTURE. They take and use to empower and deceive!

        when are the JOURNALISTS GOING TO WRITE THE REAL STORY? and tell what needs to be told?

        *those showing favoritism will be seen for what they are … if DENYING THE PUBLIC IMPORTANT INFORMATION BECAUSE OF FAVORITISM—A PUSHING OF AGENDA—‘it’ may very well be viewed as the accomplice should things get really hot … and things ARE going to get even hotter …

        instead the pope getting his pizza is the news … good grief …

        he will be getting more than a slice …

        and those hoping for political positions will have their work reviewed .. intent will be realized for what it is.

        —and those using one religious sect to demean another could not be more obvious.

        it really is that people never learn.

    Chile Exposes Pope Francis – Will Philly, NYC &/or DC Be Next? Is A Council Near?

    Christian Catholicism

    Pope Francis’ and the discredited ex-pope have permanently failed with their over hyped and false slogan of “zero tolerance on sexual abuse”. Increasingly, outraged Catholic parents and grandparents are not buying the “papal bull” anymore. They are instead closely watching Francis’ hypocritical actions now, not his empty promises. Catholics are even shouting down their bishops in church, with some violence, as early Christians also sometimes did to bad bishops. Political leaders are also watching this closely, as the Francis’ “Hollywood like facade” fades fast.

    Click here to see a BBC video of what is fairly described as a “near riot” — the unprecedented Chileans’ angry protest recently against Pope Francis’ choice of Bishop Barros, alleged to have silently witnessed sexual abuse by his mentor, famous Chilean priest, Fernando Karadima. Francis named Barros to head a small diocese that is close to Argentina and to an active volcano. Francis misjudged. The sex abuse volcano has erupted. See the extraordinary pictures here, Pubimetro , and also the shocking second video of everyday Catholics protesting here, YouTube .

    Bishop Barros is apparently part of a broader priest sexual abuse culture, that may have even included, according to reported allegations, a former Chilean Jesuit superior. Francis likely knew and knows some of the key culprits, since Argentina’s and Chile’s Catholic and Jesuit organizations are tied closely. For the broader Chilean abuse situation and Francis’ Chilean connections, please see Jason Berry’s comprehensive description, “Chilean cardinals close to pope stained by abuse cover-ups“, here,

    [National Catholic Reporter]

    “I hold the Pope responsible,” said Juan Carlos Cruz, a 51-year-old journalist who is one of the accusers of Barros.

    “This contradicts everything the Pope has said. He was aware of the situation but named [Barros as bishop] anyway,” Cruz told reporters. “We were accustomed to getting slapped in the face by the Catholic Church [in Chile], but getting slapped by the Pope himself is the saddest part. …”, Cruz reportedly added. (my emphasis)

    As the Chilean abuse volcano was blowing the top off the abuse cover up, top researcher, Betty Clermont, was releasing her extraordinarily thorough and revealing new analysis, Pope Francis and the Dirty War: Keeping the Record Straight – Part I and Pope Francis and the Dirty War: Keeping the Record Straight – Part II . Her well documented essays, in my view, blow the top off some key episodes in Francis’ calculated and uninspiring (at best) relations with the murderous Argentine military earlier.

    Dietrich Bonhoeffer (German: [ˈdiːtʁɪç ˈboːnhœfɐ]; 4 February 1906 – 9 April 1945) was a German Lutheran pastor, theologian, anti-Nazi dissident, and key founding member of the Confessing Church. His writings on Christianity’s role in the secular world have become widely influential, and his book The Cost of Discipleship became a modern classic.[1]

    Apart from his theological writings, Bonhoeffer was known for his staunch resistance to the Nazi dictatorship, including vocal opposition to Hitler’s euthanasia program and genocidal persecution of the Jews.[2] He was arrested in April 1943 by the Gestapo and imprisoned at Tegel prison for one and a half years. Later he was transferred to a Nazi concentration camp. After being allegedly associated with the plot to assassinate Adolf Hitler, he was briefly tried, along with other accused plotters, including former members of the Abwehr (the German Military Intelligence Office), and then executed by hanging on 9 April 1945 as the Nazi regime collapsed, just two weeks before Allied forces liberated the camp and three weeks before Hitler’s suicide.
