Suitably Ashamed

The Unholy Father has regaled the media with another exercise of humbleness that, in fact, enhances his perception in the world as it damages the reputation of the Church.

I am, hopefully, not the only one who says that these disgraceful things must be put in context (in this country the BBC, the NHS and the very corridors of Westminster are now under scrutiny for events happened several decades ago, and which had been covered under a thick layer of silence), and that it would be high time that the Church – and therefore the Pope – would stop accepting the role of the world's villain without any resistance.

But he doesn't, and looks rather good as he speaks of his “shame” for something for which he is not personally responsible. This should make for a couple of good headlines: “Francis ashamed of Catholic Church”, or the like. Atheists and perverts will like it a lot.

But wait: if Francis is so ashamed, he will be ruthless in his exposing scandals and caring that no wrong behaviour is covered up, surely?

How is it, then, that a certainly explosive 300 page report about homosexuality and sodomy within the Vatican takes dust – or, who knows, was perhaps even destroyed – under the watch of the suitably ashamed Pope oh so concerned that Truth emerges and Justice is restored?

Take it from me: this oh so ashamed, humble man is a six pound note.

  1. Dear Mundabor,

    Can you tell us more about this 300 page report on homosexuality? I am unaware of it, and would like to learn more.

    God love you!

  2. I noticed 2 articles side by side on CH yesterday. The first was Pope Francis saying that bishops will be dealt with for cover ups. The second was about his meeting with abuse survivors where he was asked to remove Sean Brady….his response? These things are difficult. Well?? Which is it? Is he going to do something or not??

  3. Must have been all those rosary-praying, neo-pelegians in the Church that committed all the abuse. Certainly can’t blame it on the network of fags and queers running rampant throughout the hierarchy. Nope. Can’t judge them.

  4. oh Yeah, the three hundred page report! well that sure went down the Memory Hole!
