Questionable Motives

Who will the church blame today?

Stay up to date on the latest catholic church blame game. Because we know for certain that no blame can be attributed in any way to the institution for aiding and abetting and covering up child abuse by clergy within the church on a global scale, and we know this to be true in spite of incontrovertible evidence to the contrary, we are left wondering: who is to blame? To our rationalizing rescue comes this site where we find we can find out the daily answers here.

  1. [Engage sarcasm]

    Of course it is the victims fault – if the child was not there, the priest wouldn’t have been able to rape it. Besides God told the priest that he could rape children and be forgiven so long as he says a few Hail Mary’s afterwards – it says so in the bible, which is evidence of the priest innocence. It is not for lawyers to judge the holy – only God the father, the son, mother and daughter of the holy Christ can do that on the entrance to heaven, and he will forgive these priests, and send this child and his lawyers to hell for causing trouble.

    This is a Darwinist conspiracy involving all lawyers and children against the Church.

  2. Breaking news – something that almost looks honest from the Catholic Church with regard to the child abuse scandals.

    I do not like the idea of the Church continuing to work with the vulnerable and children as suggested by Nicolas in the video. For me I think that time passed a long time ago, and no amount of apologies is going to grant them the forgiveness that would allow my sanction of their ‘business as usual’ stance. They all knew what was going on, and they should have talked and walked as soon as they became aware of the skulduggery involved in these cases – not after the fact. It is all very well resigning after the scandal has caused a media Tsunami, but it takes real morals to actually do something about it before the media circus began.

    Put it this way, if the business I worked for was directly responsible for covering up a scandal of this repulsion, I would ringing the alarm bells so loudly that you would hear them all over the planet. The fact that this was not done, and the fact that many within the Church knew what was going on (because they received orders directly from the Pope himself), just shows the calculated nature of their decision not to call foul.

    • Saying ‘sorry’ is not the point; as you suggest, holding those officials who created and implemented the policy to aid and abet and cover up these crimes criminally liable is.

      Sure, we can and should hold the foot soldiers of the Vatican’s policy to account for the complicity, and we should expect better behaviour from those who tell us with a straight face what horrors of hell await sinners of such crimes, but without going after the all heads of this hydra, we should also expect more of the same if we are willing to be satisfied only by apologies and a promises that they will do better. Our children deserve better from us than to return them to harm’s way only in the hope and prayer that things will be different now just because this corrupt organization has been revealed for the criminal entity it is and have a few people shed crocodile tears tell us how very sorry they are. That’s just not good enough.
