Pope to apologize for abuse in Australia

The Pope is in Australia for the World Youth Day and he is supposed to apologize for:

decades of sexual abuse of children by priests.

Apologize? That’s it? This is the equivalent of catching a kid with their hands in the cookie jar and letting them go with an apology. Well, come to think of it most parents will do just that, but you get my drift. Usually a crime is followed by a suitable punishment. If wide spread sexual abuse involved any other institution but a religious one, would we expect such leniency? Of course not, they would be persecuted like you wouldn’t believe, but no, not the Church. The Church has been covering up such abuses for decades and all they have to do is say “sorry” and they’re home free. Am I the only one who is disgusted that even child sexual abuse can be overlooked by the authorities if the Church is involved? Fucking disgusting!

  1. I’m disgusted like you, not by the Church in itself, but by “men of Church”. I don’t know if the Pope is the right person to judge those priests, I use to think that anyone is the right person to judge another human being. But you know what? God will punish the ones who committed the crimes of abuse when it’ll be the right time for them 😉 be sure about it! We only have to pray a lot. This is my opinion.
