Only 24 years too late

This is what’s called “a little late off the mark”, but I guess it’s a start:

Pope Benedict XVI’s former diocese says it has suspended a priest convicted in 1986 of sexually abusing minors and accepted the resignation of his superior.

The Archdiocese of Munich and Freising said Monday it had suspended a priest identified only as Rev. H. after having found that he had violated the condition that he not work with youth. The archdiocese said they had no complaints of more offences by the priest.

Right… the fact that nobody else has come forward to complain (yet) absolutely means that nobody else has been victimized by this scum in priest’s clothing.  Sure.

And it’s hard to believe they’re serious about dealing with these rotten freaks that infest the priesthood when for every case where intense media scrutiny forces the church to hold someone in its hierarchy accountable to whatever lame extent, there’s a case like this.

UPDATE: And who’s to blame for covering up all these child-molesting priests?  The Catholic League’s Bill Donohue has it all figured out.  (h/t JAB in the comments)

    Oh, nice token measure. Great to see they’re right on top of this, as usual. It goes to show they have absolutely no concept of the gravity of the situation they’re dealing with. They gotta do a little more than a few cheap hail Mary’s.

    Yeah, Hail Marys come cheap but indulgences now … open your wallet.

    Bruce – I always wonder what would happen if the media didn’t find out about these things. Would they just continue to be covered up, or would the church announce that they’re having problems and doing an investigation?

    /yeah right

    deBeauxOs – I’m convinced money is why they’re so opposed to contraception as well as abortion — more tithing Catholics are always needed to replace the ones who leave the church in disgust.

    Bill Donohue is such a f*cking nutcase.

    The difference between what went on in the RCC and his other examples are a huge matter of degrees. Good grief.

    Indulgences, that’s the word I was looking for. Neat trick to get others to pay for your sins and have them believe it will please the unseen, unknown thing that apparently keeps tabs on all things, like YOUR morality.

    toujoursdan – No kidding, eh? 😆 He never fails to disappoint. Er, never disappoints. (No, I think I had it right the first time.)

    Bruce – are you a recovering / wayward Catholic too?

    lol

  9. 9 JJ Tuesday, March 16, 2010 at 7:52 pm

    Bruce – It’s all about money with the RC church. ALL.

    I note that BBW has found this twisted interpretation of events to her liking. The Pope is being persecuted, I tell ya!
    Nice way to dump on the victims, SUZANNE. Always side with the power and money.

    dBO, Actually no, we’re not a religious family. Mom & Dad pretty much left it up to us kids if we wanted to do anything.

    It’s just that when you’re gay and you see the influence the Catholic church has on society, and the incredible amount of damage it can cause, I tend to get a little pissed off. There is no good reason for all the bullshit they cause in the world.

    Good grief, she’s demented 🙄 How can it be persecution when it’s about real events that took place under the pope’s former administration?

    Bruce – Well said, that’s it in a nutshell.

    In which case, y’all should go visit Feminist christian socialist’s blogsite to read her most excellent post about the propaganda campaign the Vatican Taliban is cranking up, named appropriately enough “Catholics Come Home”
