Last night September 25, 2010 there was a one hour documentory on CNN about child sexual abuse in the Catholic Church and the Vatican – What Pope Knew. I am aware of the story but CNN put in perspective that the current pope (previously known as Cardinal Ratzinger) knew about the abuse and chose not only to do nothing, but tried to cover it up. This story shows how corrupt the Catholic Church is to the core.
I have attended a few services of the Catholic Church and if one goes by the show, ceremonies and rituals, one is overwhelmed and in awe but it turns out it is all a show. There is a serious rot going on. It looks hardly anyone stood up for the victims and perpetrators seem to have almost invariably gotten their way. It is scary. Now it is obvious why people are turning away from the organized religions.
I could not find the CNN video but here is a video which puts some light on Cardinal Ratzinger and so-called Father Murphy. The CNN documentary includes many other abuses in the US, Europe, and in other countries.
