The Pope is Shocked that Belgian Laws Apply to Priests

The Pope is Shocked that Belgian Laws Apply to Priests
On Thursday, Belgian police raided Catholic church offices and the tombs of two cardinals searching for evidence in child sex abuse cases against priests in the country. The Vatican was very upset that some priests were treated like actual people, and were subjected to searches in a criminal investigation involving their colleagues. And today, Pope Benedict sent a message to Brussels Archbishop Andre Joseph Leonard expressing his dismay at the "deplorable methods" used in carrying out Belgian law. From the BBC:

I want to express, dear brother in the Episcopate, as well as to all the Bishops of Belgium, my closeness and solidarity in this moment of sadness, in which, with certain surprising and deplorable methods, searches were carried out."

"I hope that justice will follow its course while guaranteeing the rights of individuals and institutions, respecting the rights of victims, (and) acknowledging those who undertake to collaborate with it."

You see, the Pope is actually worried about the victims in the sex abuse cases, not just his pals in the Brussels Cathedral. And the Vatican's secretary of state chimed in, too, comparing modern Belgium to "old communist regimes":

Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican Secretary of State, described the detention of priests "serious and unbelievable".

"There are no precedents, not even under the old communist regimes," he said.

So if Belgium is a big, bad godless commie state, what does that make the Vatican? A theocratic nest of child molesters and real estate fraudsters?

Hello MagdaGraham,

I like your site and your attitude,

I am the proverbial gift horse and I am now gifting you with the Vatican's worst nightmare, now realized.

I want to give you and your network of contacts a heads up. Something big is about to happen and you and others should be ready for it. The Vatican is being set up for a much bigger fall than most are expecting. Here's an early peak. Some amazingly damaging information about pivotal religious assertions is about to become widely available and understood. This child abuse scandal is merely proof of their absolute lack of veracity, before the real controversy is unsealed.

Following is a link to a draft-preview of my upcoming new book for parties like yourself, who are more likely to make good use of the information. Take the time to understand and be ready to chime in when the shit hits the fan. The next major update before widespread publication will be available early next month.

Please excuse the ads on this site, it's a free file storage site and I'm not ready to post it to E-Book sites until it's done.

Finishing the Mysteries of Gods and Symbols

Peace and Wisdom,
