* Pope Benedict accepts no responsibility for his own horrific failures to prevent sexual abuse and punish the many Catholic priests who either abused children or covered up the abuses of others. He’s a disgrace to his Holy office, and he should resign

Pope Benedict

AP reports …

Pope Benedict XVI rebuked Irish bishops Saturday for “grave errors of judgment” in handling clerical sex abuse cases and ordered an investigation into the Irish church. But he laid no blame for the problem on the Vatican’s policies of keeping such cases secret.

While a cardinal at the Vatican, Joseph Ratzinger penned a 2001 letter instructing bishops around the world to report all cases of abuse to his office and keep the church investigations secret under threat of excommunication.

While the Vatican insists that secrecy rule only applied to the church’s investigation and didn’t preclude reporting abuse to police, Irish bishops have said the letter was widely understood to mean they shouldn’t report the cases to civil authorities.

    Pope Benedict is a traitor just like Benedict Arnold. I’m not the only one that sees this pope as evil. His eyes are the same as Hitler’s. The pope is evil and the Bible declares him as the beast sitting on the seven mountains (Rome). He will play a huge role in the future of the world and I hope that he burns in hell.
