After Years Of Protecting Pedophile Priests, Pope Francis Forced To Outlaw Vatican ‘Pontifical Secret’ Code Which Allowed Child Rape To Flourish

Pope Benedict XVI had decreed in 2001 that these cases must be dealt with under 'pontifical secret', the highest form of secrecy in the church. The Vatican had long insisted that such confidentiality was necessary to protect the privacy of the victim, the reputation of the accused and the integrity of the canonical process. However, such secrecy also served to keep the scandal hidden, to prevent law enforcement from accessing documents and to silence victims, many of whom often believed that 'pontifical secret' prevented them from going to the police to report their priestly abusers.
Pope Francis scraps 'pontifical secret' code of confidentiality used in clergy sex abuse cases

Pope Francis has abolished the ‘pontifical secret’ code of confidentiality used in clergy sexual abuse cases, after mounting criticism that the obligation has been used to protect paedophiles, silence victims and keep authorities from investigating crimes.

The very idea of what I’m about to tell you is so chilling, and so disgusting, that it is nearly too repugnant to write about. The Vatican had official law in place to prevent pedophile priests from ever being brought to justice, they call it the Pontifical Secret, and it is the ‘stay out of jail free’ card of the Catholic Church to protect child rapists and molesters. Pope Francis refused for years to abolish this law and is only doing so now because he is being forced to do it.

“For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.” Revelation 18:5-8 (KJV)

Pope Francis, who did not want to overturn this law, was finally forced to do it by the ever-growing wave of public outrage combined with hundreds of millions of dollars they have been forced to pay out so far in lawsuits brought by their victims. But the truly disgusting aspect to all of this is that Pope Francis for years had fought and resisted outlawing the Pontifical Secret, he liked it and was very much in favor of using it.

For hundreds of years, the Roman Catholic Church has not only recruited homosexual pedophiles for the priesthood, they have also created a demonic playground where these pervert pedophiles were able to molest and rape children. When they got caught, the Vatican simply moved them to a new location where they started all over again in a new parish with new children. This pattern of abuse has continued up to the reign of Pope Francis who used the Pontifical Secret code for years. This new change by Pope Francis is not a cause for celebration, it is a cause for shame because the pope did not want to do this, he want to keep using the Pontifical Secret. Pope Francis is a repulsive person.

This is not the Church that Jesus shed His blood for, this is the counterfeit church that sheds the blood of the saints.

Pope Francis scraps ‘pontifical secret’ code of confidentiality used in clergy sex abuse cases

FROM DAILY MAIL UK: In a new document issued on Tuesday, Pope Francis decreed that information in abuse cases must be protected by church leaders to ensure its ‘security, integrity and confidentiality’. But he also said the ‘pontifical secret’ code no longer applies to abuse-related accusations, trials and decisions under the Catholic Church’s canon law. Francis also raised from 14 to 18 the cut-off age below which the Vatican considers pornographic images to be child pornography.

The new laws were issued on Tuesday – Pope Francis’ 83rd birthday – as he struggles to respond to the global explosion of the abuse scandal, his own missteps in dealing with the issue, and demands for greater transparency and accountability from victims, law enforcement and ordinary Catholics alike.

Pope Benedict XVI had decreed in 2001 that these cases must be dealt with under ‘pontifical secret’, the highest form of secrecy in the church. The Vatican had long insisted that such confidentiality was necessary to protect the privacy of the victim, the reputation of the accused and the integrity of the canonical process.

However, such secrecy also served to keep the scandal hidden, to prevent law enforcement from accessing documents and to silence victims, many of whom often believed that ‘pontifical secret’ prevented them from going to the police to report their priestly abusers.

While the Vatican has long tried to insist this is not the case, it has never mandated that bishops and religious superiors report sex crimes to police, and in the past has encouraged bishops not to do so.

According to the new instruction, which was signed by the Vatican secretary of state but authorised by the pope, the Vatican still does not mandate reporting the crimes to police, saying religious superiors are obliged to do so where civil reporting laws require it. READ MORE
