Pope Benedict XVI - The Cover up
There was an article in USA Today, that reports how Pope Benedict XVI was dismissed from a civil lawsuit (Texas Judge - go figure) where three boys were molested by, Juan Carlos Patino-Arango. The reason Joseph Ratzinger, or as they call him now, Pope Benedict XVI's name was mentioned is because he was accused of conspiring with the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston and some of its officials to cover up the sexual abuse of three boys.
from USA Today: "The letter, written when Ratzinger was prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, explains that "grave" crimes such as the sexual abuse of minors would be handled by his congregation and that the proceedings of special church tribunals handling the cases were subject to "pontifical secret."
Now they are giving him immunity because of his religious position. the Pope's lawyer said, "the pope is entitled to immunity like any foreign sovereign without any special limitations imposed upon his immunity just because he is a religious leader."
This is scary and just shows you how the religious powers get away with some of the most deviant crimes. I don't care if he is the Pope. He's a fucking criminal.
