* Vatican blasts anti-Catholic ‘hate’ campaign … trying to change the topic away from the vile abuses and illegal coverup that has been going on for decades; the answer is to prosecute and jail the bishops, cardinals and pope who have enabled the destruction of children’s lives in order to avoid exposing the Church’s disgusting behavior

AP reports (4/12/10) …

The Vatican heatedly defended Pope Benedict XVI on Tuesday, claiming accusations that he helped cover up the actions of pedophile priests are part of an anti-Catholic “hate” campaign targeting the pope for his opposition to abortion and same-sex marriage.

Vatican Radio broadcast comments by two senior cardinals explaining “the motive for these attacks” on the pope and the Vatican newspaper chipped in with spirited comments from another top cardinal.

“The pope defends life and the family, based on marriage between a man and a woman, in a world in which powerful lobbies would like to impose a completely different” agenda, Spanish Cardinal Julian Herranz, head of the disciplinary commission for Holy See officials, said on the radio.

Herranz didn’t identify the lobbies but “defense of life” is Vatican shorthand for anti-abortion efforts.

Also arguing that Benedict’s promotion of conservative family models had provoked the so-called attacks was the Vatican’s dean of the College of Cardinals, Angelo Sodano.

LMW COMMENT …

The CATHOLIC Church is trying to change thye topic. Abortion and homosexuality have nothing whatsoever to do with the abuse of thousands of children by priests and the purposeful illegal coverup of these crimes by the Church hierarchy for decades, thus permitting untold numbers of additional abuses AFTER the priest abusers were known. The Church conduct then and now is a disgrace. All of those who performed or covered up these vile actions should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Put a few bishops and cardinals in jail, and the tome will change dramatically.
