and wants to sequester himself for the rest of his life in Vatican City (a sovereign state or country) where he has legal immunity. In an absolutely extraordinary and almost unprecedented act, Pope Benedict XVI (formerly Joseph Ratzinger) decided to abdicate from the papal throne on February 11th, 2013, something which a reigning Pope has not done for almost 600 years.
So why all of a sudden has a Pope resigned when it’s a Catholic tradition not to do that? Ratzinger cited a “lack of strength of mind and body” as the reason for his stepping down. This may seem to be a reasonable explanation, but when you consider that every Pope is normally quite old when they take the throne, and many continue to “hold office” even when they are slow, tired or at the point of dementia, it doesn’t quite add up. A much more likely explanation is that the skeletons in the closet caught up with the Pope, especially concerning his handling of the Catholic Church pedophilia that has been going on for a long time (centuries) all over the world.
On January 30, 2013 the ITCCS (The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State), which had convened an International Common Law Court, concluded its case against Ratzinger, British Queen Elizabeth Windsor and 28 other public figures, and found them all guilty of criminal conspiracy, crimes against humanity and genocide. They were given a chance to face the charges and defend themselves, but they chose to ignore it. Subsequently, warrants were issued for their arrest in several countries, and local law enforcement in Italy, England, Canada, etc. has been asked to assist in enforcing it.
Since this court is a common law court and not the same thing as the International Law Court at the Hague, Netherlands, it is difficult to say how much weight and power its judgments carry. However, there is no doubt that all this action is making the elite very nervous, and there is a very good chance Ratzinger is hiding out in a Vatican monastery now, afraid for his life if he dares to cross the border.
Many people, especially victims of Catholic Church pedophilia and molestation, are sick and tired of the Vatican’s hypocrisy as it goes around pontificating, moralizing and telling people what to do, while secretly harboring pedophiles and sex offenders. The Catholic Church’s doctrines of guilt and suppression around sexuality have created a fertile ground for pedophilia. To make things worse though, the Vatican (led by Ratzinger, first as head of the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and later as Pope) has engaged in massive denial and avoidance of responsibility by covering it all up and refusing to address the problem, moving molesting priests from one diocese to another in hopes that they magically will stop offending and keep their hands to themselves. Meanwhile, the Vatican is paying out huge sums (like $660 million) in legal fees and penalties for its sex offenses.
Catholic Church pedophilia is completely out of control, causing untold suffering to millions of people and has to end, now! If the Vatican isn’t going to do anything about it, then maybe the citizens of the world will. May Ratzinger get arrested and take some responsibility for the pain he has caused and covered up.
