Pope Benedict XVI’s dark legacy

Pope Benedict XVI has decided to step down, and in doing so he has earned himself the title, ‘The short distance Pope’. He is the first pontiff to resign since Pope Gregory XII (d. 1415), who, some 600 years ago, was one of three legal popes equally in charge of Christianity. He was ‘declared unworthy of the pontificate, and accepted a large payment of gold to stand aside’¹, then leaving only two popes in the chair of St. Peter. While it seems that Benedict XVI’s health was one reason for his resignation, rumours are rife in the international media that a secret 300-page ‘Vatileaks dossier’ commissioned by the Pope himself, reveals the existence of a shadowy ‘network of gay senior prelates in the Vatican’ (‘The Guardian’) and the associated information is so ‘explosive’ that it ultimately led to Benedict XVI deciding to call it a day. Whatever the truth, it is undeniable that he was the central living figure in the most horrific and widespread scandal to hit the Vatican since it established its 588-year-long murderous Inquisition in 1232 (1232-1820). As prosecutors are increasingly moving into the Church of Rome and Catholics are moving out in unprecedented numbers, Pope Benedict XVI now has his architects finishing off his new $14 million retirement home in a refurbished three-story convent in the Vatican gardens.

Pope John Paul II’s secret instructions

In November, 1981, as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, Pope John Paul II appointed him to the position of prefect of the ‘Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith’ (CDF), a notorious Vatican department previously called the ‘Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Roman and Universal Inquisition’. Later, John Paul II put Ratzinger in charge of concealing thousands of charges of child rape and torture by Catholic priests that were streaming in from victims around the world. With a staff of 45 to assist him, Cardinal Ratzinger oversaw and controlled every single case of clerical sex abuse at the Vatican from 2001 until he became Pope in 2005. In that same year (2005), the ‘London Observer’ reported that Cardinal Ratzinger ordered the Catholic clergy not to pass any damaging information about paedophile priests to the press or law enforcement authorities. In a letter sent by Ratzinger to every bishop in the world, he ordered that all priesthood abuse and child rape allegations were to be investigated only in the Vatican, ‘in the most secretive way … restrained by a perpetual silence … and everyone … is to observe the strictest secret which is commonly regarded as a secret of the Holy Office’ (‘London Observer’). The letter added that the reporting of incidents to outside sources was an offense punishable by excommunication.

Benedict XVI protected priests who abused children

Recently, Jonathon Freedland writing for ‘The Guardian’ newspaper in London said: ‘Whatever warm words he uttered as pope, it is [his] record of action - and inaction - that matters more … despite his age and the reverence of the office he soon vacates, he should answer for his actions. Not only in the next life, but here and now’. Freedland lists the accusations that are leveled against Pope Benedict XVI that included withholding knowledge, and personally covering up thousands of instances of priesthood paedophilia. A very serious accusation ask questions of Pope Benedict XVI’s record when he was the Archbishop of Munich and his reported efforts apparently to protect the secrecy of the Regensburg and Munich files of both himself and his older brother, Georg Ratzinger (1924- ), a senior priest in Bavaria. Allegations of abuse at a boarding school where Monsignor Georg Ratzinger ran the choir for 30 years surfaced in March 2010, and although the Pope’s brother denied knowledge of the extent of what was happening, he admitted that ‘he slapped pupils in the face’ (BBC, March 9th, 2010).

Pope Benedict XVI should be remembered for his sins

No one is more implicated in covering up the Vatican’s institutionalization of priesthood sex crimes than Pope Benedict XVI, the man who was elected to the chair of St. Peter with a reputation of being the Vatican’s ‘Rottweiler’ and a supposed hardened administrator who was to punish dissenters within the Catholic Church. It should also be remembered that he remains the subject of a ‘crimes against humanity’ claim before the International Criminal Court in The Hague, and for him, seclusion in a Vatican mini-palace provides a way to evade responsibility for his central role in protecting priests who raped hundreds of thousands of children around the world.

Could Pope Benedict XVI be put on trial?

(CNN - Video) – Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation brings calls for his prosecution. CNN’s Nic Robertson investigates the claims.
