His victim blaming level must be over 9000.

What a sick fuck.

The point isn't if the kid 'wants' it or not, you asshole.

Is it really so hard to just not fuck thirteen year olds?

I'd say what I think of this bishop, but he's not worth the inevitable ban. =P

Evil or dangerous? Evil or dangerous?

Aw, heck. I choose both.

A kid consenting is like a kid saying their dad is superman. The kid may mean it but it doesn't make it a real thing. And any adult, any adult, should know that. It is patently obvious to me.

His statement is overladen with so much irony, stupidity, victim blaming, and denial that it really makes you wonder if it was extracted from an Onion article. This goes far beyond "liar, liar, pants on fire," this shatters the bullshit detector. Cute little innocent puppies die when such rotten filthy lies are spewed out in the public arena, pure driven snow is pissed and defecated on, and helpless babies cry....I could go on. God reading that literally made me feel ill.

It was.

Fuck you, Bernie. Making excuses for pedophilia is just as evil as pedophilia itself. You kiddie-fiddling enabling fuck, it's people like you that make me wish hell was real.

"It's them pesky kids parading around in them robes we give them, I tell you. That or I'm a pedophile. Nah. I'm a man of God." Should be stripped of every last vestige of his power and thrown into jail. And tell the other inmates what he's in for. See what happens.

By the way, I don't mean the article is literally a fraud. I was just remarking on the fact that this dense, evil bishop matched almost word-for-word a parody article in the Onion.

I keep trying to find a way to say this, and can't quite be as clear as I want, so let me take a stab at it and hope you can read through the lack of clarity:

Psychologically normal adult human beings do not look at a 12 year old boy and feel sexually tempted. If a psychologically normal human being sees that 12 year old in his underwear, the normal thought it, "Get dressed and stop goofing off. Now."

I can understand that maybe a 16 or 17 year old might be visually tempting, but grown adults understand that a physically maturing body is not the same thing as a physical mature mind, and Courtney Stodden is a twit.

But still, if this guy feels that 12 year old boys "tempt" molestation, he's showing us something about himself that is very frightening.

Is it more frightening if he is a pedophile himself, or just willing to downplay abuse or outright excuse the rapists?

Not sure.

From a story in a link at the story Charles linked to:

A later statement from the Bishop's residence on Tenerife explained that the Bishop did not intend to imply that ‘an event as condemnable as the abuse of youngsters’ could be justified

He didn't intend to imply that the abuse could be justified? Then what the hell was he saying, if not exactly that?

I've been having some discussions with some other Catholic friends about these pedophilia incidents, and we are all utterly disgusted with the incidents themselves, as well as the Church leadership's response (or rather, lack of response). They seem to be so comfortably ensconced in their own little, narrow world that they really just have no clue whatsoever; they've lost touch with the human element of their ministry. In serious despair over this right now.

"if you are careless they will even provoke you"

Translation: temptations, temptations everywhere. Sooo easy to stumble!

I don't see this news on spanish media (although i did a google search news), does anybody have the original quote in Spanish?

18 Dancing along the light of day  Thu, Jan 26, 2012 12:24:50am

I don't know where to even suggest the Catholic Church, starts to fix, what are clearly systemic problems. I am moved to pity the believers, who have so been abused. Words fail me.

re: #17 ElCapitanAmerica

I found 2. One from El Pais, and the other from La Opinion.

This was published way back in 2007.

You are being very clear, indeed.

The other issue is that children, even at 13 years old, are pretty powerless to say no to an adult, especially a priest who they otherwise have great admiration. So if he's not simply lying to justify his abhorrent behavior (which he could be) what he perceives as willingness is, as you say, the inability of a child to say no.

The good news, if there could be any, is that this generation and probably the one before, is taught good/bad touch at an early age. They may not be able to prevent molestation because of their age, but they do learn it's ok to tell someone about it. That didn't happen when I was a kid.

Possibly that's because you are a decent human being?
