The story starts out with the following:
The Vatican "systematically" adopted policies that allowed priests to rape and molest tens of thousands of children over decades, a U.N. human rights committee said Wednesday, urging the Holy See to open its files on pedophiles and bishops who concealed their crimes.The UN totally disregards the fact that all those involved in the actual scandal and those who tried to cover it up were all doing so in complete disobedience to the laws and canons of the Church. If the "policies" of the Church had been followed, there never would have been a pedophile scandal.
The UN also completely disregards the governmental structure of the Church in that the Holy See, i.e., the Pope, does not have jurisdiction over individual dioceses in the Church, but that the bishop of each diocese is the person responsible for what happens in his jurisdiction. In fact, a United States Federal Court made this ruling in August, 2012. From the New York Times in an article dated August 20, 2012:
The Vatican won a major victory on Monday in federal court, as a judge ruled that the Holy See is not the employer of molester priests. The decision by Judge Michael Mosman of United States District Court ends a six-year question in the decade-old case and could shield the Vatican from possible monetary damages. The lawsuit was filed in 2002 by a Seattle-area man who said the Rev. Andrew Ronan repeatedly molested him in the 1960s. The plaintiffs claimed that Father Ronan and all priests are employees of the Vatican, which is therefore liable for their actions. Judge Mosman made a previous decision strictly on legal theory and determined that, if all the facts in the case were true, then the Vatican would indeed employ Father Ronan. But on Monday, the judge said he looked at the facts and did not find an employer-employee relationship.The second paragraph of the Breitbart article gives the real reason for this ruling by the United Nations:
In a devastating report hailed by abuse victims, the U.N. committee severely criticized the Holy See for its attitudes toward homosexuality, contraception and abortion and said it should change its own canon law to ensure children's rights and their access to health care are guaranteed.Further:
While most attention has focused on child sex abuse, the committee's recommendations extended far beyond, into issues about discrimination against children and their rights to adequate health care, matters that touch on core church teaching about life and sexual morals.
The committee, for example, urged the Vatican to amend its canon law to identify circumstances where access to abortion can be permitted for children, such as to save the life of a young mother. It urged the Holy See to ensure that sex education, including access to information about contraception and preventing HIV, is mandatory in Catholic schools. It called for the Holy See to use its moral authority to condemn discrimination against homosexual children, or children raised by same-sex couples.Why is the UN going after the Catholic Church and for all intents and purposes, trying to destroy her by forcing her to change her 2000 year old teachings? Are we truly to believe that the United Nations, which wholeheartedly and unreservedly supports abortion - the intentional killing of innocent children in the womb - really cares what happens to these children when they do manage to be born despite all efforts to kill them? It is so obvious that their goal is to destroy the Catholic Church because Holy Mother Church will never accept their immoral agenda against life.
The Breitbart article states the following:
No Catholic bishop has ever been sanctioned by the Vatican for sheltering an abusive priest, and only in 2010 did the Holy See direct bishops to report abusers to police where law enforcement requires it. Vatican officials have acknowledged that bishop accountability remains a major problem and have suggested that under Francis, things might begin to change.
The pedophile scandal is obviously just an easy way for the UN to condemn the Catholic Church. They act as if the Catholic Church was the only organization in which this happens. Pedophilia is a world wide epidemic. The internet is most responsible for the spread of this evil. Why doesn't the UN say something about that?
This United Nations report shows that the Catholic Church is more and more standing alone in a world that is intent on destroying itself. Every major sin has now received worldwide approval, and is not only accepted but applauded. If anyone dares to disagree, he must be destroyed, and that is most particularly true for the Catholic Church. Less than two percent of all Catholic priests were involved in the pedophilia scandal. The percentage of Protestant ministers involved in pedophilia is around ten percent. Why isn't the UN concerned about this? Simple. Protestants for the most part (Evangelicals being the exception) are not threatening the culture of death that is promoted by the United Nations.
Who would be put into such camps? Those who are enemies of the state. And who are the enemies of the State? Look at the signs, my friend. My own governor, Andrew Cuomo, just recently made a comment that those who hold Christian, pro life, pro marriage positions are not welcome in New York. From Foxnews.com:
"Their problem is not me and the Democrats; their problem is themselves," he said. "Who are they? Are they these extreme conservatives who are right-to-life, pro-assault-weapon, anti-gay? Is that who they are? Because if that’s who they are and they’re the extreme conservatives, they have no place in the state of New York, because that’s not who New Yorkers are."
Christendom - the reign of Christianity in the world - is dead. The devil has taken over and his agenda is to wipe out Christians and all they believe in, just as he tried to wipe out the Christ Child 2000 years ago. He didn't succeed then, and he won't succeed now. But he will inflict major damage, and unless you are ready, unless you are grounded in your faith and your Christian beliefs and are literally willing to die for what you believe in, the devil may win the battle over you personally.
I Peter 5:6-9
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.
Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.
