Israel is not to be accused of pederasty. (Babylonian Talmud, Kiddushin 82a)
It's worth recalling Ratzinger's talmudic attitude vis a vis investigation into the Church's horrific sex predator problem by am haaretz:
In 2002 Cardinal Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, slaps ABC reporter Brian Ross when asked about pederast founder of the Legionaries "of Christ" Marcial Maciel
It seems, now that "the brothers in the faith" have pretty much all they need from the Vatican, there's little left to bargain with for media protection. I doubt Benedict's effeminate hand slaps can stem the outrage he deserves to face now.
I propose that "Church militant" "traditionalists" who heed the call to "defend the 'holy father'" against "his attackers" ask themselves a simple question: if "the holy father" is able to change ancient Catholic tradition and teaching to suit "the brothers in the faith" in a matter of weeks and months, then why, even after decades pass, is it not possible to protect the souls of Catholic children from sex predators in "the holy father's" employ?
