Ratzinger’s Non-Confidence Motion
Pope Ratzinger resigned because he lost confidence of the Catholic congregations. The church is haemorrhaging members. He has his own personal child molesting scandals lingering from his pre-pope days. Further, his butler exposed financial scandals. Child sexual abuse is as fundamental to the Catholic Church as praying to the Virgin Mary. There is no way he could excise it even if he tried. The Catholic Church is the world’s largest and oldest pedophile ring.
Who is to replace him? A Canadian? Nothing would change. Canadian Catholics cheerlead gaybashing, oppose gay marriage, oppose birth control, oppose abortion even after rape, want to exclude women from the clergy and deny the right to die under any circumstances. The only place left in the world where the Catholic Church is not actively evil is South America. They would be wise to tap that vein of virtue and vigour, particularly El Salvador. What the cardinals might do is elect an African pope to the right of Attila the Hun. For a short while they might fool people that they have done something progressive.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
