What did Jesus say about those who rape children? In Matt 18:6-14, He said they should be viciously punished, and that Catholics should go and find every victim.
Instead, of course, the Catholic church did the exact opposite.
A perfect example is Cardinal Bernard Law, who ran the largest organized child rape crime syndicate in US history by hiding at least 271 known pedophile priests in Boston.
Not only was Cardinal Law not punished by the Catholic church, he was defended using every legal, political and financial means possible, then moved to the Vatican, where he was rewarded by Pope John Paul 2.
John Paul 2 made Cardinal Law the archpriest of Rome’s most magnificent papal basilicas: Santa Maria Maggiore, the first church dedicated to Mary. To see pictures, Google

and see the filthy riches that Cardinal Law would preside over as a reward for trying to protect the reputation of the church, protect pedophiles, and fight the innocent victims that came forward.
The Catholic church now admits that they hid and protected at least 71 pedophile priests in Baltimore alone.
In 2002, they had temporarily published a list of 57 known pedophile priests, but of course they were lying. The more recent, more accurate number, as of May 2016, is that the Catholic church hid and protected at least 71 pedophile priests in Baltimore.
Catholic church produced documents show that at least 11,022 Catholic priests have been accused of raping children in the United States, all in unforgivable defiance of Jesus in Matt 18:6-14.
If you’re looking for excuses instead of victims, the devil loves you.
The Catholic church ADMITTED 4,392 substantiated, accused child sex offending priests in the Catholic church’s own John Jay report of 2004, and that’s just in the US. No institution in US history is even close. Of course they lied, and added 6,630 in the USCCB (Catholic Bishops) Schuth report of 2013, Page 10, and that’s just ones they’ve admitted.
Add 4.392 to 6,630 and you get 11,022 child sex offending clery. Since there were about 100,000 priests over the time of the study, at least 11% of Catholic priests are child sex offenders, and about 60% of those are literally “pedophiles”.
- These numbers are definitely under-reported. Catholics make sure that victims aren’t believed, and are humiliated, and most of them won’t come forward. Most are suicidal anyways, and can’t handle the ridicule.
- Most of these pedophile priests raped multiple children, and many raped over 100 children
- The Schuth report does not indicate whether there is overlap between the two numbers, i.e. the 4,392 from the John Jay report and the 6,630 from the Schuth report
- These are based on accusations. There is almost never proof of child rape, since all Catholic priests lie about it (unless the Statute Of Limitations has expired), and no one saw them do it, and priests that they “confess” their child rapes to never report it.
No institution is anywhere close, but Catholics will distort the truth to claim it is, usually using “estimates”, “extrapolations”, and guesses. In other words, just made up numbers.
If you want to “extrapolate”, extrapolate from Boston, where at least 271 out of 1500 priests were pedophiles, so, through extrapolation, 18% of all Catholic priests are pedophiles.
When did you learn that the earth revolved around the sun. For most people, it is when they are 10 years old.
The Catholic church learned, and admitted it, when they were 1992 years old.
Yep, in 1992.
You can read the full story about Galileo and the Catholic church in Wikipedia, but the summary is that the Catholic church imprisoned Galileo in 1633, and kept him in prison until his death in 1642.
His crime: heresy, promoting the concept that the earth revolved around the sun.
The Catholic Church finally accepted blame and forgave Galileo in 1992, about 350 years later. The New York Times writes about Pope John Paul II and Galileo and they mention that it was done after a 13 year investigation.
Conclusions about the Catholic church:
- they refuse to understand or accept science, even after everyone else does, if it conflicts with church teachings
- they will refuse to accept blame, until 350 years after the rest of the world knows they are at fault
- even then, the apology was as lame as an apology can be
Spotlight won the Oscar for Best Picture, because it is powerful enough to literally change the religion of tens of millions of people.
Spotlight shows that the Catholic church is a crime syndicate of evil, committing organized child rape, then concealing it, then using their power to protect known pedophiles, until they got caught. They did the opposite of What Jesus Would Do (which is obvious, but also stated in Matt 18:6-14, where Jesus said harming a child was unforgivable).
This movie will have a more dramatic impact on people’s lives than any movie ever made, and Hollywood knows understand that. They rewarded themselves for changing the world in a way only Hollywood movies could, and they deserve the reward.
Thanks, Spotlight, for clearly showing us the truth about “God’s church”, defiant in evil.
And someday, Phil Saviano, the vocal victim portrayed in the movie, Mitchell Garabedian, the attorney, and others in SNAP will receive awards for courage, for having strength and determination to fight evil despite insurmountable odds.
The movie “Spotlight” shows how difficult it is to get the truth out of an organized crime syndicate. A team of Boston journalists worked tirelessly to find out that the Catholic church knowingly was running a massive organized childrape crime syndicate in Boston and around the world back in a time when the Catholic Church had a powerful influence. It also shows how Catholic followers tried to help the church get away with it.
Make no mistake, Spotlight is a movie about organized crime, featuring the Catholic church, the largest organized childrape crime syndicate in the history of the US, and in BRUTAL defiance of Jesus in Matt 18:6-14, where Jesus said childrape was unforgivable.
This movie shows how the Catholic church exhibited the same “code of silence” that the mafia has (without the honor), as they were protecting at least 249 “confessed” pedo-priests in Boston.
The pedo-priests in the Catholic church raped over 1,000 children in Boston alone, thanks to at least 249 pedophile priests, hidden and protected by hundreds of other priests, including Cardinal Law. (Only 90 were known at the time of the movie, but credits at the end show 249, and the number is now at least 271 Boston pedophile clergy).
The Catholic church admitted 4,329 substantiated, accused pedophile priests in the US in their own John Jay report of 2004, and of course, they lied. Since 2004, they have found an ADDITIONAL 6,630 pedo-priests according to the USCCB Schuth report of 2013.
And the Catholic church hid & protected 100% of their known pedo-priests, worldwide (Matt 18:6-14). Cowardly, rampant, unforgivable evil, in brutal defiance of Jesus.
In Pope Benedict’s farewell address, he literally claimed “God was sleeping” instead of taking responsibility for running the largest organized child rape crime ring in the western world.
Also reported in the NY Daily News, “Lord seemed to sleep”, stunning the followers.
Catholics have tried to blame everyone else for their child rape crimes, but blaming God, really? And Catholics just sat quietly and accepted it.
