The Congregation of the Doctrine of Faith sole purpose is to protect the image of the Catholic Church by any means necessary. Unfortunately Joseph Ratzinger was willing to protect the Catholic Church even if it endangered innocent children.
(I-Newswire) New Orleans, LA, October 14, 2010 - According to the Preacher Bureau of Investigation Pope Benedict has a lot of explaining to do.
In the US Judicial System there exists a felony charge called Accessory after the Fact. A suspect in the United States can be charged with this offense if he knowingly shelters or aids a criminal after they have committed a crime. Another serious felony charge in the United States is Child Endangerment which equates to placing a child in a potentially harmful situation through negligence or misconduct.
Pope Benedict has come under a tremendous amount of criticism because of his handling of cases that involved Priests who raped children. Pope Benedict in his role as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith which deals with sex abuse cases is accused of moving pedophile priests from one Diocese to the next in order to conceal child rapists. As Prefect of this division of the Vatican, it was his sole responsibility to discipline Priests accused of raping children.
The Preacher Bureau of Investigations (located at www.PimpPreacher.com) reports that Joseph Alois Ratzinger as he was known before his name was selected at the Conclave on April 19, 2005, was charged as the sole defender of the catholic church. He became Archbishop of Munich in 1977 in which he earned more stripes for his allegiance to the church. Joseph Ratzinger was also Dean of The College of Cardinals which served as the preparatory for Catholic Church leadership. In 1981 he ascended into his executive role as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of The Faith, thus giving him the final say on the persecution of pedophile priests.
The mission of the Congregation for the Doctrine of The Faith is to maintain and defend the integrity of the faith and to examine and proscribe errors and false doctrines.
The reason it is important to review the resume of Joseph Ratzinger is because it gives insight to why the Catholic Church was so quick to hide and conceal the actions of pedophile priests. Pope Benedict has spent the majority of his life defending the actions of Catholicism. The Congregation of the Doctrine of Faith sole purpose is to protect the image of the Catholic Church by any means necessary. Unfortunately Joseph Ratzinger was willing to protect the Catholic Church even if it endangered innocent children.
The Vatican is now admitting that Father Lawrence C. Murphy raped 200 boys at a Wisconsin School for the deaf from 1950 – 1974. The allegations started to surface in the early 70's but no charges were ever filed against Father Murphy. The Pedophile Priest was placed on a brief leave of absence and then returned to the ministry. It is important to mention that Lawrence Murphy remained at the school for the deaf until 1993, and when he died in 1998 he died as a priest. A social worker who interviewed the Pedophile Priest says Father Murphy admitted to raping 200 boys and showed no remorse for the crimes.
It is also reported by The New York Times that three successive Archbishops in Wisconsin were told that Father Murphy was sexually abusing children but the bishops never reported the rapes to criminal or civil authorities. There was in fact a secret church trial in 1995 that was eventually halted after Father Murphy appealed to Prefect Joseph Alois Ratzinger who later became Pope Benedict XVI.
The Catholic Church has always taken the position that victims of Rape by Priests should simply "walk it off" as athletes would say on the basketball court. It wasn't until the accumulation of financial losses from civil trials that the Vatican finally cleared its throat and released a few dry words of condolence for the rape victims.
If a stepfather was accused of raping his 13 years old step daughter and the mother was instrumental in not only covering it up but also creating situations that further subjected the child to more sexual violence, then she too would get charged with numerous felony offenses. For instance, the mother of the 13 year old could face Accessory after the Fact, child endangerment, and felony child abuse just to name the more commonly applied charges in a court of law.
According to recent civil court filing, Pope Benedict was fully aware of the rape that was perpetrated by Lawrence Murphy (The Rapist Priest), and did absolutely nothing because in taking action it could damage the reputation of the church and its archdiocese. When given the choice of turning over a pedophile priest to law enforcement, Pope Benedict sided with the one entity he was trained to defend at any cost, Catholicism.
It is the position of the Preacher Bureau of Investigations that Pope Benedict answer the charge of Accessory to Rape after the fact, child endangerment, and felony child abuse. On all three charges the Preacher Bureau of Investigations finds Joseph Alois Ratzinger aka Pope Benedict Guilty as Charged.
