Pervert protecting Bergoglio betrays victims of sodomite priests for a false mercy!

Not even Sunday can get us away from the evil coming out of Rome; and not even a Shaman will save Bergoglio from his own false mercy. 

Elizabeth Yore at The Remnant has made great effort in bringing the attention forward that the actions of Bergoglio against pervert priests is not to be trusted. He has weakened the controls instituted by Joseph Ratzinger and has been implicated in one case in particular.

January 25, 2017

Now, this news is breaking overnight on AP. The world is waking up that Bergoglio himself ordered the commutation of a priest's sentence in the name of "mercy." A priest who later was charged with the rape of more children as young as twelve.
A priest. A sodomite, a homosexual "redeemed" by Francis only to have him do it again.

ROME - Pope Francis has quietly reduced sanctions against a handful of pedophile priests, applying his vision of a merciful church even to its worst offenders in ways that survivors of abuse and the pope’s own advisers question.
One case has come back to haunt him: An Italian priest who received the pope’s clemency was later convicted by an Italian criminal court for his sex crimes against children as young as 12. Father Mauro Inzoli is now facing a second church trial after new evidence emerged against him, The Associated Press has learned.
The Inzoli case is one of several in which Francis overruled the advice of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and reduced a sentence that called for the priest to be defrocked, two canon lawyers and a church official told AP. Instead, the priests were sentenced to penalties including a lifetime of penance and prayer and removal from public ministry.
In some cases, the priests or their high-ranking friends appealed to Francis for clemency by citing the pope’s own words about mercy in their petitions, the church official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the proceedings are confidential. 
“With all this emphasis on mercy … he is creating the environment for such initiatives,” the church official said, adding that clemency petitions were rarely granted by Pope Benedict XVI, who launched a tough crackdown during his 2005-2013 papacy and defrocked some 800 priests who raped and molested children.
At the same time, Francis also ordered three longtime staffers at the congregation dismissed, two of whom worked for the discipline section that handles sex abuse cases, the lawyers and church official said.
One is the head of the section and will be replaced before leaving March 31. Vatican spokesman Greg Burke said the others too will be replaced and that staffing in the office, which has a years long backlog of cases, would be strengthened after Francis recently approved hiring more officials.
“The speed with which cases are handled is a serious matter and the Holy Father continues to encourage improvements in this area,” Burke told AP.
He also dispelled rumors that sex-abuse cases would no longer be handled by the congregation, saying the strengthened office would handle all cases submitted.
Burke said Francis’s emphasis on mercy applied to “even those who are guilty of heinous crimes.” He said priests who abuse are permanently removed from ministry, but are not necessarily dismissed from the clerical state, the church term for laicization or defrocking.
“The Holy Father understands that many victims and survivors can find any sign of mercy in this area difficult,” Burke said. “But he knows that the Gospel message of mercy is ultimately a source of powerful healing and of grace.”
St. John Paul II was long criticized for failing to respond to the abuse crisis, but ultimately he said in 2002 that “there is no place in the priesthood or religious life” for anyone who would harm the young. Francis has repeatedly proclaimed “zero tolerance” for abusive priests and in December wrote to the world’s bishops committing to take “all necessary measures” to protect them.
But he also recently said he believed sex abusers suffer from a “disease” - a medical term used by defense lawyers to seek mitigating factors in canonical sentences.
Marie Collins, an Irish abuse survivor and founding member of Francis’s sex-abuse advisory commission, expressed dismay that the congregation’s recommended penalties were being weakened and said abusers are never so sick that they don’t know what they’re doing.
“All who abuse have made a conscious decision to do so,” Collins told AP. “Even those who are pedophiles, experts will tell you, are still responsible for their actions. They can resist their inclinations.”
Victim advocates have long questioned Francis’s commitment to continuing Benedict’s tough line, given he had no experience dealing with abusive priests or their victims in his native Argentina. While Francis counts Boston’s Cardinal Sean O’Malley as his top adviser on abuse, he has also surrounded himself with cardinal advisers who botched handling abuse cases in their archdioceses.
“They are not having zero tolerance,” said Rocio Figueroa, a former Vatican official and ex-member of the Peru-based Sodalitium Christianae Vitae, a conservative Catholic lay society rocked by sex scandals.
The Vatican recently handed down sanctions against the group’s founder after determining that he sexually, psychologically and physically abused his recruits. His victims, however, are enraged that it took the Vatican six years to decide that the founder should be isolated, but not expelled, from the community.
The church official stressed that to his knowledge, none of Francis’s reduced sentences had put children at risk.
Many canon lawyers and church authorities argue that defrocking pedophiles can put society at greater risk because the church no longer exerts any control over them. They argue that keeping the men in restricted ministry, away from children, at least enables superiors to exert some degree of supervision.
But Collins said the church must also take into account the message that reduced canonical sentences sends to both survivors and abusers.
“While mercy is important, justice for all parties is equally important,” Collins said in an email. “If there is seen to be any weakness about proper penalties, then it might well send the wrong message to those who would abuse.”
It can also come back to embarrass the church. Take for example the case of Inzoli, a well-connected Italian priest who was found guilty by the Vatican in 2012 of abusing young boys and ordered defrocked.
Inzoli appealed and in 2014 Francis reduced the penalty to a lifetime of prayer, prohibiting him from celebrating Mass in public or being near children, barring him from his diocese and ordering five years of psychotherapy.
In a statement announcing Francis’s decision to reduce the sentence, Crema Bishop Oscar Cantoni said “no misery is so profound, no sin so terrible that mercy cannot be applied.”
In November, an Italian criminal judge showed little mercy in convicting Inzoli of abusing five children, aged 12-16, and sentencing him to four years, nine months in prison. The judge said Inzoli had a number of other victims but their cases fell outside the statute of limitations.
Burke disclosed to AP that the Vatican recently initiated a new canonical trial against Inzoli based on “new elements” that had come to light. He declined to elaborate.
Amid questions about how the battle against abuse was faring, Francis recently named O’Malley, who heads his sex-abuse advisory commission, as a member of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. But it’s not clear what influence he can wield from his home base in Boston.
Francis scrapped the commission’s proposed tribunal for bishops who botch abuse cases following legal objections from the congregation. The commission’s other major initiative - a guideline template to help dioceses develop policies to fight abuse and safeguard children - is gathering dust. The Vatican never sent the template to bishops’ conferences, as the commission had sought, or even linked it to its main abuse-resource website.

Directly from Bergoglio's personal secretary in Buenos Aires:

during her years as Archbishop Bergoglio's secretary, she received so many letters denouncing child abuse in catholic schools. And Bergoglio did nothing about it. She says there's no chance she will ever send her own children to a catholic school in Buenos Aires.

If he didn't do a thing being archbishop, he won't being a "popet".


Barbara Jensen said...

It has to be understood that Bergoglio is a liar. His word means nothing at all. Once that is understood all else falls into place. None os what is written in this article should be a surprise. If anyone ever seriously researches Bergoglio's past, I suspect they will enter a very deep and a very evil rabbit hole.

Bergoglio operates in collectives and ideologies, not individual souls and truth.
He will sacrifice children for the sake of appearances. He wants to be perceived as an improved, enlightened and more loving version of our allegedly backward, no longer relevant Saviour.
Bergoglio's actions are opposite to his claims.
Let's not forget - according to Bergoglio communists are the best Christians. The millions they murdered, including children, are irrelevant, when his humbleness ponders the beauty of the never realized claims of justice for all.
How I wish Bergoglio the ideologue without mercy for the most vulnerable would retire. Hasn't he said that his pontificate would be a short one?

Johnno said...

Two more things of note. Will the abuse cases pressure Francis to violate the confessional seak? Because that's what the dopey Australian bishops are asking.


As well as the company Francis continues to keep seems to include an overwhelming amount of perverts. Like... what the hack man? One should know a man by his friends.

"The Fr John Gallagher Case: Chief Deputy Sheriff accuses Diocese of Palm Beach of 44 years of obstructing investigations into homosexual abuse" @torontocatholicwitness.blogspot.com.es, involving both Bishop Barbarito & Cardinal O'Malley. Fr. Gallagher has been suspended & is now suing the Diocese for defamation & persecution. We mustn't forget also the case of Fr. Luis Medina in Columbia who opposed giving Holy Communion to divorced & remarried (as in AL) & was suspended from priestly duties only to be quickly reinstated. Nor, of course, must we not keep watching what happens in Malta where seminarians were told by their Bishop that if they didn't conform they knew where the door was.

Mercy is only shown to deviant priests & their enablers (usually Bishops or Cardinals). Justice doesn't come into the picture at all. Peter Saunders who was asked to step aside by Commission Members, has plenty to say about the way the Vatican pays more attention to money than the fate of children. Bishop Barros in Chile is another case of covering-up child abuse - the list goes on & on, but suddenly the media goes cold on this subject & one has to troll through reams of old documented accounts to get the overall picture of nothing being done, only mercy by the back door to deviants & not their victims.

This is appalling, and really just more of the same. Up is down and good is evil, with this man. He is simply diabolical.
Homosexual priests cannot be reformed or "made safe". They are almost always pederasts, having their own internal malady of self, they use little boys and young men for their selfish pleasure, and like those addicted to opioids, they cannot be put off from it. This is why men cruise woods and bathrooms, looking for sex with men they don't even know, it is a disease of the self, and obsession. That these men would be treated with such "mercy", is sickening.
The Catholic Church looks like a great, big gay club. You may as well put a sign up, "Studio 54" and call it a day.
I am entirely disgusted.
God, please, in your mercy, help us.

@ Johnno

Will they violate the confessional seal on account of paedophilia? - This is an easy one. The best predictor of future behaviour is past behaviour.

Here is a sure answer - The alleged walking mercy, man who abhors rules, to the point of changing - as Vicar of Christ - the meaning of the Words of Jesus Christ and the very clear and written in stone (hence rigid) commandments of the merciful and just God, will in this particular case invoke Church Tradition to keep safe his paedophiles.

I want to be wrong about this. I really do.

Johnno said...

@Dorota Mosiewicz-Patalas

The man can still put on a show by violating the seal of confession by proclaiming the undermining of this sacrament to the world on a (non-infallible of course *wink*) Papal document.

Then he and his friends violate their own rules by not reporting pedophilia to the police to protect themselves.

The important footnote being that the reporting duties are left entirely up to the priest's individual conscience.

So what could occur is that pedophiles and perverts will still be protected.

But oddly enough, the priests will leak information to the public about the private sins of pro-life anti-immigration republicans... because, you know... thinking about the deportation of a poor Muslim was really straining Father's conscience, so he had to leak details to the press in order to prevent the man's holding office.

That's how this stupidity will play out in reality.

He's already undermined Marriage and the Eucharist. The priesthood is on the way with the plans for expanding women's roles. This just leaves Baptism/Confirmation and Reconciliation. Extremunction won't matter because everyone's saved.

With respect to the Australian sex abuse commissioner's request that the pope be petitioned to break the seal of the confessional for sex abusers, I have to say that if the pope allows the seal of the confessional to be broken, I will never enter a confessional again, nor have my sins heard by a priest. While one's heart goes out to victims of sex abuse, and I have no tolerance for priestly abusers (defrock and jail them with extended sentences), there are sound and serious reasons to retain the absolute confessional seal that extends well beyond this egregious, but singular, matter.

Catholic sacraments are increasingly under assault. Pope Francis has attacked Holy Matrimony and the Eucharist by allowing adulterers to discern their way to communion. He is severing the necessary connection between Catholic doctrine and praxis. There are Vatican musings about allowing women deacons, which would attack the sacrament of Holy Orders. The pope is destroying one of the four "notes" of the Church (its catholicity) by devolving decision making to individual bishops on matters such as euthanasia and "communion for the re-married. In Canada one can ask for doctor assisted murder and receive the sacraments in Quebec and Atlantic Canada, while being denied the sacraments in Alberta and Ontario. How does this disparity reflect the one, holy, catholic and apostolic notes of the Church, as denoted in the Nicene and Apostles creeds?

Francis is clearly in favour of inter-communion with Lutherans, who do not even believe in the Real Presence and whose male and female clergy lack valid orders to celebrate mass. He sees the Reformation as just a misunderstanding. I wonder if Saint John Fisher and Saint Thomas More and the English martyrs (and the legions of other Catholics who were martyred for the Faith) share that view. Some misunderstanding! One can go on, but you get my drift.

John The Mad, please don't eschew the Sacrament of Confession because of the sins of the clergy, for that would be its own sin. Do you not have the option of confessing behind the screen and to a priest who doesn't know you personally? Along those lines, I would think much of this problem would be solved if it were mandated that confessions must be made behind the screen (barring extenuating circumstances).

My own personal opinion is that God will hold the shepherds accountable for the loss of faith among us sheep. That is, if Catholics abandon the faith because of the actions and perversions and destruction of the faith by the hierarchy...there will be he'll to pay...by them.
