    Default Retired pope blames the 60s,homosexuals and atheism for church pedophilia

    Absence of God, the sexual revolution of the swinging ‘60s and the formation of “homosexual cliques” in seminaries are to blame for the Catholic Church’s rampant sex abuse scandals, retired Pope Benedict XVI has said.

    In 6,000-word essay – published Thursday in the German monthly Klerusblatt, the Catholic News Agency and in other conservative media – the former pontiff traced the start of the clergy abuse to when sex began to appear in films in his native Bavaria. He also blamed the crisis on failures of moral theology in that era and slammed church laws in place that gave protection to priests accused of abuse.

    “Why did pedophilia reach such proportions? Ultimately, the reason is the absence of God,” Benedict wrote. “Perhaps it is worth mentioning that in not a few seminaries, students caught reading my books were considered unsuitable for the priesthood. My books were hidden away, like bad literature, and only read under the desk.”

    The conservative theologian said that during the 1980s and 1990s, “the right to a defense [for priests] was so broad as to make a conviction nearly impossible.”

    As Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Benedict spearheaded reforms of those laws in 2001 to make it easier to remove priests who abused children. Benedict took a hard line against clerical sex abuse as the Vatican's conservative doctrine chief, and later as pope, defrocking hundreds of priests accused of raping and molesting children.

    Benedict’s essay was immediately criticized as “catastrophically irresponsible” because it conflicts with efforts by his successor, Pope Francis, to lead the church out of the sex abuse crisis.



    Benedict, who retired in 2013 and turns 92 next week, also blamed the scandal on a clerical culture in the church that raises priests above worshippers.

    The essay was criticized by church historians including Christopher Bellitto, who questioned if Benedict was being manipulated by others. He said the essay omitted the critical conclusions that arose from the pope's February sex abuse summit in Rome, including that "abusers were priests along the ideological spectrum, that the abuse predated the 1960s, that it is a global and not simply Western problem, that homosexuality is not the issue in pedophilia."

    It can't be assumed that sexual abuse by priests didn't exist prior to the so called sexual revolution. It can be argued that victims in the last couple of generations are more likely to speak of being sexually assaulted unlike in the past when people were less likely to question a religious authority figure. To point a finger at the local priest could have social consequences in a religious community.

    I've heard argue of a "homosexual clique" of priests before. There was a book written about it by Linda Chavez if I recall correctly. The issue with priests and sexual abuse has never been about pedophilia but rather hebephilia. You don't hear many stories of prepubescent boys being sexually assaulted but rather those going through puberty. This makes the issue a homosexual problem rather than a pedo problem.

    It makes sense that someone with that inclination (hebephilia) would place themselves in a position where they would have access to their sexual desire and it makes sense that a clique would form around it. Like minded people will be able to recognize each other.

    Maybe, or to avoid jail. All these priests ever get is being removed from their duties. I have very rarely heard of any priest going to jail, but that is just me.

    There have been arrests and priests have been jailed in the US but in the past - I'm only speaking of the US - the moment there was talk of something not being right with a priest the powers that be in the church would move him elsewhere instead of contacting the police about the issue.

    We live in a different time - at least in the US - where the church can no longer get away with keeping quiet about an alleged crime.

    Reactionary responses as always, the blindness of light by excellence, this cretin should have mentioned the historical past his church have with pedophilia dating back for at least 500 years.

    I would like to see a change in catholic priest rules about priest getting married because we humans are designed to pass down our genes. ( it's our biological nature) . Even God said it's not good for man to be alone. many pastors have family & can serve the church at full time.

    as for pedophilia & homosexual lust/attractive. I know nothing about that world.
