No I would rather he tell the truth and be honest with the ACTUAL cause and reasons behind the rape of boys and girls by multitudes of homosexual pedophile priests and leaders within the Roman Catholic church for decades and not try to deceive the masses with false and phony excuses that try and whitewash the responsibility of the church and put the blame on "society" instead of where it really belongs.
Please cite the excuse you think His Holiness made.
jmouse. Read what the Pope actually said. He was not blaming the abuse on society. He was saying that children need to be protected. Part of protecting them is to shield them from those things in society which fuel an unhealty and unChristian view of sex. More and more we see the culture normalizing homosexual behavior, promiscuity, fornication, adultery and shameful as this is the sexualization of children. Some experts argue that intergenerational sex (their term I call it pedophilia) is not alway harmful and can even be beneficial. Its all about love you see.(sarc)
If you think these messages of the culture do not contribute to the sexual abuse of children you are very wrong. If you think pornography is not used to help break down moral barriers to profane sex you are wrong. If you think the liberization of teachings on sexuality that polluted even the seminaries had no bearing on the crisis you are wrong.
And if you really want to protect children from sexual abuse shutting down the government schools would be an excellent start.
