How About the Pedophiles First?

Condoms and Sec. Cabral
As expected, the Catholic bishops in the Philippines continue to be on the war path against the government's distribution of condoms, and now they want Department of Health (DOH) Secretary Esperanza Cabral (pictured above, right) kicked out of office because of the project.

The DOH distributed free condoms on Valentine’s Day as part of its campaign to stem the spread of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), which causes Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS).

Lipa Archbishop Ramon Arguelles said a leader like Cabral should not be heading a vital government agency, since her condom-distribution program could endanger the people's morals.

So who should the people looked up to for moral guidance? An institution rocked by sex abused scandals? And typical of any corrupt international ecclesiastical front composed of molesting perverts, the Roman Catholic Church tries to explain that the spread of HIV-AIDS can be prevented by following their medieval bullshit teachings.

Not all Filipinos are gullible to believe that the problem on HIV-AIDS can be addressed by "respecting the sanctity of the human body." This is a typical evasive sophistry on the part of the Church to deflect the fact that they don't have any idea about the complicated nature of the virus.

Instead of dawdling on things that they are unfamiliar with, how about handing over the pedophiles within their ranks for trial, conviction and sentencing for their heinous crimes against children?

Reports of systematic historical abuse by pedophiles Roman Catholic clergy have surfaced at 3 schools in the Regensburg diocese in Bavaria. One of them is the much-heralded Regensburger Domspatzen, a 1000 year-old male choir and boarding school, whose choral master for 30 years was the Pope's older brother, Georg Ratzinger.

Monsignor Ratzinger has already agreed to testify in any eventual prosecutions, but unless and until they hand over the guilty priests, everyone must assume that the disgraceful conspiracy of silence over child abuse and the sickening encouragement of and collusion with pedophiles will continue within the Roman Catholic church.
