FTA: The first part presents the "wider social context of the question", lamenting the 1960s as a time when "previously normative standards regarding sexuality collapsed entirely".
He blames sexual films, images of nudity and "the clothing of that time" leading to "mental collapse" and "violence".
At the time of the sexual revolution, "Catholic moral theology suffered a collapse that rendered the Church defenseless against these changes in society", he said.
The sexual revolution led to pedophilia being "diagnosed as allowed and appropriate".
Question ; Whats more powerful, "sexual films, images of nudity and "the clothing of that time" leading to "mental collapse" and "violence"" or god?
If the later then why the fuck didnt Mr big sky whisper "Stop it you little pervert" in their shell like?
Poor, poor baby. It must be hard to have all your power taken away from you and being so helpless the only satisfaction you get out of life is to molest children. Quit blaming others or the times for things you were supposed to control. This sexual abuse has been going on for ages and maybe present revelations going back to the 60's is because of documentations going back that far.
My question is that did he really retire or was RATzinger pushed out because he was so useless.
I read that over the week-end...insanity has certainly taken center stage in this day and age! He must be into senility, why report such mutterings of people over the hill! I sure wouldn’t want anyone to report my ignorant ideas at the end of my life!
Typical of all "conservatives" from the Pope to Roseanne Barr. They are great at passing judgment and telling others about personal responsibility and how they must be accountable for their own choices. Until they are called out about their own behavior and then it is always someone else's fault.
As pope Benedict/Ratzinger did do one good thing. He stepped down.
I wonder who he thinks - other than his clergy - decided that sex with non-consenting people became ‘allowed and appropriate’? I think it was a section of his clergy and the rest of the paedophile community. I don’t know who else would have agreed with that.
It’s a very strange admission. And his proposed causal relationship is also odd and I suggest unevidenced
The sad part is that society refuses to speak out against these morons! Seriously, if there was a real devil... he/she would be living at the Vatican. The most vile creatures on the planet live at the Vatican, and these vile creatures still have society convinced that they are the moral compass of humanity. Granted, the secular society has begun to seek justice for some of their horrific crimes against humanity, but until the church’s money and power are stripped away...no real justice can be sought.
