Pope’s Clemency For Paedophile Priests Called Into Question After New Scandal

A report has revealed that a pedo priest who received clemency reoffended and is facing a second church trial

The Popes firm belief in the power of mercy has been called into question after a previously-convicted paedophile priest re- offended.

The priest in question struck again around two years afters sanctions against child-abusing clery were reduced by the Pontiff.

According to a report by the Associated Press the case of Italian priest, Rev. Mauro Inzoli, who received church clemency but was later convicted for abusing children, has put the spotlight back on the sins of the Catholic Church.

RT reports:

The report has revealed that Inzoli is now facing a second church trial after new evidence emerged against him.

Inzoli was found guilty of abusing young boys by a 2012 Vatican investigation and was ordered to be defrocked.

He appealed his punishment and, in 2014, Pope Francis overruled the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and granted clemency, reducing the priest’s penalty to a lifetime of prayer.

He was also prohibited from celebrating Mass in public or being near children, was banished from his diocese and ordered to undergo five years of psychotherapy.

However, in June 2016, Inzoli was convicted by an Italian criminal court of sexually abusing five children between the ages of 12 and 16 and was sentenced to four years, nine months in prison.

Greg Burke, the Vatican spokesman, has defended Pope Francis’ proclivity towards mercy in such cases, stating that “even those who are guilty of heinous crimes,” can expect clemency from the Holy Father, according to AP.

“The Holy Father understands that many victims and survivors can find any sign of mercy in this area difficult,” Burke added.

Canon lawyers and church officials argue that keeping abusive priests under the authority of the church is the best way to protect children.

In sharp contrast, Pope Benedict XVI launched a major campaign to stamp out pedophilia in the Catholic church during his brief tenure as Pope between 2005 and 2013. At least 400 priests found guilty of sex crimes against children were defrocked.

      “Incorrect”… yes they are evil, the body is but a “vessel” and your already in hell.

  • John C Carleton

    Ever wonder why the Popes, justttttttttttttt can not seem to stop the Roman Catholic clergy raping little boys? Me too!

    • Roger

      The feed off the fear and control of those that cannot protect themselves….. this is how evil moves.

      • John C Carleton

        How about we move the evil to the hanging tree?

        • Roger

          “Agreed”…… now you have to factor in “reincarnation”, because this is how it works.

          • John C Carleton

            Of course. Understanding the way it works, i am less and less inclined to call for capitol punishment, we all pay in the end, no one gets away with anything. However, a pedophile will never stop raping children. In this case to protect the children, i’ll pull lever on the scaffold myself.

    Not my Pope! Catholics all over the world need to call for an investigation into why this man became Pope. He does not represent the beliefs of Catholics.

    The Vatican, as well as private and government power structures throughout the Western world often involved and accused of pedophilia, child sex trafficking, and even ritual sacrifice; could very well be involved in occultist blood libel rituals and other alleged perversions of the Jewish religion.

      I’ve heard rumors about false Jews, imposters that infiltrated the Jewish religion (mentioned in Revelations 2:9 & 3:9?) whose founder Sabbatai Zevi Messiah formed the Society of Jesus Christ the 16th or 17th century, later known as the Jesuits. Influenced by Rosicrucian ideals, these ideas eventually led to the creation of notorious secret societies, such as the Free Masons and the Bavarian Illuminati for instance.

        It is rumored that their magnates later managed to infiltrate the Vatican and important aspects of society throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, detailing their plan in the infamous book “The Protocols of Zion” which is too detailed with an intimate knowledge of economics to just be a prank written up by someone with a bad taste of humor, or a antisemitic canard if you will. The book is amazingly predictive of changes that had taken place throughout the 20th century, despite originally being written and published back in the late 1800s.
