Gerald Warner On “Catholic Sex Abuse Scandal”
Old-ish, but absolutely delightful blog post from Gerald Warner (hat tip to Lux Occulta’s Shane for the hint).
Together with Delingpole, Warner is by far the best blogger of the Daily Telegraph and is most notable for being very away from the politically correct, lavender-reeking tone of the majority of his blogging colleagues.
Warner gives us, with the usual punch, his own take about the attitude of many people (in Ireland and elsewhere) regarding the so-called paedophile priest scandal (correctly: homosexual paedophile priest scandal) and shines with a very lucid analysis of both the origin of the problem and the way to put an end to it.
You should really click the link and read the contribution in its entirety, you will certainly enjoy Warner’s beautifully vitriolic style. I allow myself here to quote some of the brilliant statements contained in the blog post:
Abolish clerical celibacy? The last thing a priest abusing altar boys needs or wants is a wife
Celibacy goes against the grain of today’s “unrepressed”, “non-judgemental”, let-it-all-hang-out attitude to sex; its continued existence is a reproach to the hedonist Western world; so Rome must be persuaded to abolish it – likewise its condemnation of divorce, abortion, contraception, homosexuality and all the other fetishes of liberal society. Dream on, secularists.
These offences took place in the wake of Vatican II, when doctrines were being thrown out like so much lumber. These offenders were the children of Paul VI and “aggiornamento”.
Once you have debauched the Mystical Body of Christ, defiling altar boys comes easily.
In the period when this abuse was rampant, there was just one mortal sin in the Catholic Church: daring to celebrate or attend the Latin Tridentine Mass. A priest raping altar boys would be moved to another parish; as for a priest who had the temerity to celebrate the Old Mass – his feet would not touch the ground.
“I am so shocked by the abuse scandal I am leaving the Church.” Right. So, the fact that some degenerates who should never have been ordained violated young people – in itself a deplorable sin – means that the Son of God did not come down to earth, redeem mankind on the cross and found the Church? This appalling scandal no more compromises the truths of the Faith than the career of Alexander VI or any other corrupt Renaissance Pope.
Should bishops be forced to resign? Oh yes – approximately 95 per cent of them worldwide. These clowns in their pseudo-ethnic mitres and polyester vestments with faux-naïve Christian symbols, spouting their ecumaniac episcobabble, have presided over more than sexual abuse: they have all but extinguished the Catholic faith with their modernist fatuities. They should be retired to monasteries to spend their remaining years considering how to account to their Maker for a failed stewardship that has lost countless millions of souls.
This man has more understanding of Catholic orthodoxy than many Bishops have felt the need of in their entire life. He speaks clearly because he knows that problems are not solved by ignoring perverted priests, or simply moving them around whilst feeding easy platitudes to the customers, er, the fold.
This blog post is several months old (pre-Mundabor blog times, in fact), but it truly has lost nothing of its beauty.
A good way to start the new year, which we hope will mark another little step towards the return of orthodoxy.
