Will it ever stop, or is the Roman Catholic Church simply doomed to die of stupidity? The latest report is just outrageous: The Pope is rebuking one of his cardinals for speaking out against pedophilia.
Apparently the Pope is more concerned with his authority than he is with children's lives and well being. Cardinals aren't allowed to criticize each other, only the Pope gets to do that. So when one cardinal broke this rule and criticized another for blocking a probe into allegations of child abuse, what did the Pope do? Did he join in the criticism, thank the cardinal for bringing it to his attention, and root out the sick, corrupt priests, bishops and cardinals who were sodomizing little kids?
Of course not! Instead he issued a rare rebuke of one of his cardinals – the whistleblower who is trying to help the abused children.
It's clear where the Pope's priorities are: protecting his authority is paramount. Protecting kids doesn't seem to be of interest.
