"VATICAN CITY- Attacks on Pope Benedict and the Catholic Church over a sexual abuse scandal are comparable to the most shameful anti-Semitism, a preacher told a Vatican Good Friday service attended by the pontiff.
This week's celebrations leading up to Easter Sunday have been clouded by accusations that the Church in several countries mishandled and covered up episodes of sexual abuse of children by priests, some dating back decades.
Shaken by the crisis, the Vatican has accused the media of an "ignoble" attempt to smear the pope at all costs.
Cantalamessa, noting that this year the Jewish Passover and Christian Easter fell during the same week, said Jews throughout history had been the victims of "collective violence" and drew a comparison with current attacks on the Church over the scandal."
These people are the filthiest of perverted scum. You know they have been engaging in this deviant, criminal behavior without the slightest remorse, for centuries, and have used their power to silence their victims. This massive pervasive practice of child rape in the Catholic church is now being revealed; so they compare the people who are trying to stop their disgusting, criminal behavior to Nazi butchers.
Name calling, of course, is of little account, when compared to preying on children. Still, it sort of rounds out our picture of just how depraved and immoral the Catholic church really is.
