Rathzinger largely wrote Vatican II himself and was understandably enraged when the ultra-liberal left wing of the Catholic Church completely misinterpretted it and ran riot, disolving cloistered convents of nuns and closing monestaries, while some missionary orders of priests adopted radical liberation theology as their core beliefs. Pope JP II halted the rot within the church. Pope Benedict is actively pruning back and destroying the remaining heretical and radical elements. Of course, this is a work in progress and it will never be finished in his lifetime.and see just how incorrect you are in referring to Pope Benedict as an "ex ratzi gunner."
`I don't see the Family Values pastors getting a free pass in the media....other than from their friends on FOX! And they sure as hell don't get it from me JB!
What you say about Benedicts actions may be correct, but it does nothing for the years of coverup by the church hierarchy that allowed the pedophiles to remain in their positions of sacred trust. A hell of a lot more heads should roll than just the seminarians!
Let me clarify my position by stating first that I agree with you 100% John.you save enough of that blame for all of the other Christian churches who have harbored that same sort of sick behaviour within their infrastructure for many years now. The Roman Catholic Church always seems to get top billing by the media whenever a scandal of this horrible magnatude breaks loose, but I never seem to hear or see the finger of blame pointed toward other Christian churches with the same zeal or intensity when these scandals come home to roost at their door. Wrong is wrong for both the goose and the gander.
