Pope express shock over “priestly perversion” in his own Church

“It is hard to understand” how someone can “fall into this perversion”

The present head of the Vatican and the head of the Church of England met today for the first time.

The Pope has for the first time ever labeled sexual abuse of Catholic Children as a perversion. According to the Catholic News Agency (CNA), this is what the Pope said in his first speech on British soil, in the city Edinburgh.

“First of all,” said the Pope, “I must say that these revelations were a shock for me, they are a great sadness. It’s difficult to understand how these perversions of the priestly ministry were possible.”

He said that it is “hard to understand” how someone can “fall into this perversion” after years of priestly preparation and despite having agreed to be Christ’s “voice, His mouth, His hand” at his ordination.

It is, he repeated, a “great sadness.”

My comment:

This Papal excuse of the existing perversion inside the Roman Catholic Priesthood can not be accepted.

Because the error lies with the Papacy it self.

The Pope is supposed to be infallible in questions of moral and understanding of the scripture. Still he has banned Catholic priests from marrying.

And since the Pope admits that there are perverts ordained by Catholic Bishops, it is time to stop calling these Bishops for “holy fathers”. This label on priest and bishops is another perversion of the gospel.

The Roman Catholic doctrine of the infallible Pope is also pure non sense. Maybe we are approaching a season where the “Holy Roman Catholic Church” has to admit that the Pope him self, has betrayed Catholic children, their Messiah, and His teachings?
