WikiLeaks reveals Vatican's lack of willingness to cooperate with sex abuse investigations

Seriously, that the Vatican wouldn’t want to cooperate with investigations regarding sex abuse is no news. But the Wikileaks cables are one of the most concrete pieces of evidence (perhaps the most concrete) that we have about the Vatican’s hypocrisy and how unwilling Ratzinger and his minions are to punish those who abused children, if that will undermine his organization’s power

WikilLeaks cables: Vatican refused to engage with child sex abuse inquiry

Leaked cable lays bare how Irish government was forced to grant Vatican officials immunity from testifying to Murphy commission

The Vatican refused to allow its officials to testify before an Irish commission investigating the clerical abuse of children and was angered when they were summoned from Rome, US embassy cables released by WikiLeaks reveal.

Requests for information from the 2009 Murphy commission into sexual and physical abuse by clergy "offended many in the Vatican" who felt that the Irish government had "failed to respect and protect Vatican sovereignty during the investigations", a cable says.

The most outrageous thing here is how unwilling the Vatican is when it comes to investigate what really happened with those victims. Its hypocrisy seems to know no limits, especially considering that “the truth shall set you free” apparently, that only works when it comes to confessions. The Catholic Church tries to convince us to reveal our “sins” but is too unwilling to confess its owns.

Besides, it’s also worth noting that by now it’s impossible to talk about single cases, since we have seen once and again that it’s not just one priest raping children, or even a bishop covering those crimes. It’s the whole machine working to cover all the abuse and trying to keep their good image, even if that means letting rape go unpunished.

The Catholic Church is desperate to keep its position and power, just like a mafia when the police start disrupting its operations. The difference is that the catholic mafia needs to lose its venerable aura. Fortunately, its priests do a better job than all its detractors do together.
