Pope to hold ‘sex abuse summit’ in Ireland

The Catholic Church is hopefully going to take some time out from blaming the LGBT community for all their problems and hold a “sex abuse summit” in Ireland.

Another letter, signed by two of Ireland’s most prominent abuse victims and sent directly to the Vatican in time for the summit, chides the pope for not cooperating with the most recent investigating commission. It asks that he write to the people of Ireland “accepting fully the harm” caused by the culture of priestly abuse and cover-up in Ireland.

The Murphy report examined the cases of more than 320 victims of priestly abuse in the Dublin diocese from 1975 to 2004. Among its many findings was that one priest admitting molesting children more than 100 times. Another said he molested children at least once every two weeks for 25 years.

The report found that church officials routinely ignored complaints from children and their parents about abusive priests, concluding that all the Dublin diocese cared about was “the maintenance of secrecy, the avoidance of scandal, the protection of the reputation of the Church, and the preservation of its assets.”

The Pope needs to stop blaming “the gays” and start taking some responsibility for the church leadership’s disgusting and depraved behavior regarding the sexual abuse of children.
