Bishop blames the “God-killing” Jews for Church’s pedophile priest crisis

The Catholic Church and an Italian news source are in a dispute over statements purportedly made by Monsignor Giacomo Babini, the Bishop Emeritus of Grossetto. Babini says he never made the remarks and Pontifex claims to have tape. (Time Online)

A retired Italian bishop has provoked fury by reportedly suggesting that “Zionists” are behind the current storm of accusations over clerical sex abuse shaking the Vatican and the Catholic Church.

Monsignor Babini’s reported comments follow a series of statements from senior Vatican cardinals blaming a “concerted campaign” by “powerful lobbies” for accusations that Pope Benedict XVI was involved in covering up cases of clerical abuse both as Archbishop of Munich from 1977 to 1982 and subsequently as head of doctrine at the Vatican.

None has explicitly blamed Jews or any other group. However Bishop Babini, 81, said Jews “do not want the Church, they are its natural enemies”. He added: “Deep down, historically speaking, the Jews are deicides [God killers].”

The Catholic Church is in crisis over criticism of the way they enabled and protected priests who molested the children in their care. So far, their response has been to deny any institutional fault and to seek to push the blame to those whom they already consider to be their enemies.

They’ve blamed the gays outright and some now may be suggesting it’s all a Zionist Plot. History cautions against going in this direction.

So binary–always one or another. Clearly, it’s the gay Jewish banking media Illuminati bringing them down. Maybe in the next news cycle they’ll calm down and get their whole blame game sorted out.

Hasn’t anyone laughed in these jokers faces yet when they say these things in public? It’s not hard. Just point with a good finger and laugh. Elbow your neighbor and get them to laugh, too.

so we kikes “killed” your imaginary god-man “messiah” some time when there were 1000 messiahs in the streets and 1000 sun-gods “rising from death” to give “eternal life” to their followers.

get over it already, and go read The Golden Bough or something.

anteros said, “wow. who they gonna blame next?”

I’m thinking of the people known as Roma or Romani, more commonly known as Gypsies. They have been persecuted for centuries, so a little more won’t really matter much.

The other day when Cardinal Angelo Sodano dismissed criticism of the pope as “petty gossip,” I’m pretty sure he meant to blame it on those gossipy Gypsies.

The Vatican appears to be flummoxed about how to deal with this crisis. They just seem to alternate between floundering, and flailing in all directions.

Slouching Towards Kampala: Uganda’s Deadly Embrace of Hate

When we first reported on three American anti-gay activists traveling to Kampala for a three-day conference, we had no idea that it would be the first report of a long string of events leading to a proposal to institute the death penalty for LGBT people. But that is exactly what happened. In this report, we review our collection of more than 500 posts to tell the story of one nation’s embrace of hatred toward gay people.

Paul Cameron’s World

In 2005, the Southern Poverty Law Center wrote that “[Paul] Cameron’s ‘science’ echoes Nazi Germany.” What the SPLC didn”t know was Cameron doesn’t just “echo” Nazi Germany. He quoted extensively from one of the Final Solution’s architects. This puts his fascination with quarantines, mandatory tattoos, and extermination being a “plausible idea” in a whole new and deeply disturbing light.
