Red Deer Advocate, April 10th, 2010. ‘Paternal care’ is Vatican-speak for keeping a molester priest ‘out of trouble,’ this article says further down. Would that ‘trouble’ he should be kept out of be molesting, or getting caught molesting? When soldiers were in the field, and were granted a nite out in some new town, the whispered rule was, ‘Have fun, just cover your tracks.’ Molesting children was not our game, though. Kiesle was sentenced in 1978 for “tying up and molesting two young boys in a San Francisco Bay area church rectory.” In 1981 “Ratzinger was appointed to head the Vatican office that shared responsibility for disciplining abusive priests.” A few years after that, Kiesle “continued to do volunteer work with children through the church.” He was allowed to do this by that order from Ratzinger (who could have defrocked him but wouldn’t) for ‘paternal care’ to be provided Kiesle.
This is who Pope Benedict is: former Cardinal Ratzinger who resisted defrocking a molester priest, which resistance is called ‘paternal care,’ which order affords the molester continued access to vulnerable children! Changing your name can’t change your heart, Ratzinger. Those of us who know what popes are made of know very well what you are about. Your white dress does not imbue your soul with virtue; your Latin speech will not sanctify your orders. Jesus has this written rule: “He that is not with me is against me” (Luke 11.23.) Making use of this in a practical way concerning Ratzinger’s ‘paternal care,’ we come up with: ‘He that resists defrocking a pedophile priest must be for molesting.’
Do not be dazzled by the pope’s pomp: his pope-mobile, his jewel-filled Vatican, or his highest sacerdotal hat. The man is just Joseph Ratzinger, a rascally bad man! The reputation of his corrupt Church means more to him than the safety of innocent children. Compare this to Jesus Christ, the Person the pope falsely believes to be his Master. Did Jesus elevate corrupt religious institutions above virtue? About the bejeweled but corrupted temple in Jerusalem, he prophesied, “As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down” (Luke 21.6.) Will the pope prophesy the same about Rome? Does Ratzinger draw children all around to confer blessings on them like Jesus did? Or does he not permit them to be swarmed by carnal priests?
“It is impossible but that offences will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!” (Luke 17.1.) Woe to Ratzinger, then, for through him molesting priests do come at little children. “It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he be cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones” (verse 2.) Jesus Christ, the Judge of all the earth, will avenge every child hurt by the hierarchy of Rome. You staunch members of Roman Catholicism, if you can’t serve both God and Mammon together, be sure that you cannot serve Jesus and the pope together. You do not serve Jesus by serving the pope. The pope does not imitate Jesus, nor can he, for he has not ‘the mind of Christ’ (1 Corinthians 2.16) with which to do it. To care more for pedophile priests than those molested by them is to be ‘carnally minded’ (Romans 8.6.) Take the Bible, not popedom, for your religion. Consider your eternal welfare.
