Ambushed by a kangaroo court

February 12th, 2014 Comments off
A UN committee has roasted the Vatican over sex abuse. And abortion. And the Pill. And homosexuality. And whatever.

The UN watchdog on children’s rights which recently hauled the Vatican over the coals for its handling of sex abuse has today released its recommendations. The report is not only ignorant and misguided, peddling myths for which there is no foundation, but betrays an extraordinary misunderstanding of the nature of the Church and the Holy See, while seeking to impose an ideology of gender and sexuality in violation of the UN’s own commitment to religious freedom.

So, yes, the Pope is still Catholic. And no, he didn’t say what they claim he said.

Those are the basics. And Pope Francis is pretty basic, which is probably why he was elected in that conclave by brother cardinals in the first place. They knew what the church needed at this time in history, and this man fit the bill. Why? He’s humble, simple, accessible, speaks plainly and to everyone.
