Just As We Suspected: Plenty Of Child P*rn Found At The Vatican

Child sex abuse scandals have long plagued the Roman Catholic Church. Despite (supposed) efforts to clean up the pedophilia problem, it still persists. Well, here is yet another chapter to the scandal: LOADS of child pornography, including images, videos, and everything in between, has been found within the walls of the Vatican. This, of course, comes as no surprise to anyone who sees the Roman Catholic Church as the child-abusing religious cult and protector of pedophiles that it is.

Vatican Promoter of Justice (ironic title, that, considering how little justice happens there) Gian Piero Milano released a 50-page report detailing the images and videos of child abuse found in Vatican City. Vatican officials heard it in full at a ceremony at the beginning of its judicial year. In true Catholic cover-up fashion, Milano did not actually name names of people accused of possessing child pornography. However, in an unusual display of decency, Federico Lombardi, spokesman for the Holy See, named Archbishop Josef Wesolowski as one of the accused.

Previously, there have been reports of Wesolowski not only possessing more than 100,000 images and videos of children being forced into sex acts, but also of his molesting numerous children in Poland and the Dominican Republic. Now, you’d think this would be enough for this guy to be UNDER the jail, but no. As always, the Vatican protects its own. The high-ranking Catholic official, despite the disgusting and heinous nature of his crimes, is being protected under house arrest at the Vatican. The only reason for the house arrest is the fact that word got out that he was allowed to roam free after he was quietly whisked away from the Dominican Republic and back to the Catholic city-state by Vatican officials in order to avoid prosecution there.

Now, to what was actually found on Wesolowski’s computer — I warn you, the descriptions are stomach-turning. There were more than 160 videos of teenaged boys being forced to masturbate for the camera and perform sex acts on one another. In addition, the boys were raped and forced to perform sex acts on adults, as well. Wesolowski was tedious and protective of his child porn collection, filing more than 86,000 images into categories in locked folders. In addition to the images and videos present on the computer, at least 45,000 others had already been deleted. Further, the good Archbishop wanted to make sure he wasn’t without a stash of child porn while traveling, so he took a laptop along on his trips containing even more images and videos.

This is disgusting, but, as we all know, nothing new from the Catholic Church. While I know that rank-and-file Catholics condemn this behavior, as all decent people do, I must ask you this: how on earth can you sleep at night while you continue to tithe, attend, and otherwise support a criminal organization that has always protected the pedophiles in its ranks, shuttling them from parish to parish so that they can continue to rape children with impunity, and continues to do so? How can you think that such an organization knows anything about being a guide to morals and right living?

Sorry, but it is truly baffling. I really wish that there would be a mass exodus from this place, and all the pedophiles and their enablers and protectors would be rounded up and jailed with the keys thrown away. I won’t hold my breath on that one, though.

  1. Not surprised by any of this. The Vatican has a L O N G history of covering up such acts as these, moving priest around supposedly barring them from contact with people, but they simply moved them to other parishes.. No doubt the Vatican’s budget for K Y Jellie has probably gone through the roof.

    • Not really. Catholics are the only ones who feel their clergy should be celibate. Which is ridiculous. Humans are sexual by their very nature, expecting a grown man to not masterbate or marry is just ASKING for problems. What’s sick is that outdated principle.

      • Of course this goes on in every religion! Look at the Duggars and their bizarre form of "christianity." Or the Mormon fundies in Arizona. The more regressive the religion, the more kinky the sex becomes. And really, aren't all religions regressive?

      • Pedophilia is no excuse. They could have consensual sex with an adult. Please don’t blame this vile act on celibacy.

        • Since they are sworn to celibacy, the easiest targets are children whom they can intimidate into compliance and secrecy. That is the foremost reason paedophilia is rampant in Catholic churches.

    • It happens all over, Parents, guardians, family members, neighbors, teachers, social workers, etc. people children are suppose to trust and depend on! But the history of abuse of children from Catholic bishops and nuns goes way back generations. That is now being exposed and yes it has and will ruin them for the lies they cover up sin You cant hail Mary out of lying, its unforgivable sin to lie to Holy Spirit and live and especially if they abuse innocent children.

  2. Why don’t you also state that that the priests in question were also gay. It’s an indictment of your bias that you obscure that fact.

    • Really? Many of these pedophile priests raped both boys and girls. Brendan Smyth raped hundreds of children and adults even, both male and female. Many just raped females. The reason, as the researchers for the John Jay report on this stated are so squewed is because females are not altar boys and choir boys. The priests had more access to the boys. They also state, EXPERTS in the field, STATE that the sexuality of the rapist should not even be entered into the equation. But you disgusting Roman Catholics are ALWAYS looking for a scapegoat now arent ya?

      • Disgusting Roman Catholic? Really dude? You are so very ignorant. There people in that religion that are pedophiles as there are in every religion, and every other group of people you can think of. Adults have been having sex with children for as long as there have been adults & children.
        Whether anyone likes it or not doesn’t really matter, it’s a part of the nature of the human animal and it will never go away, ever.
        No law, punishment or religious doctrine will ever change what we are at our core. We are an animal like any other on the planet, we just impose certain thoughts and beliefs on each other in the name of civility.
        The animal inside will always be there.

        • You are a sick individual. Pedophilia is not natural (there is no excuse for it), and we are not animals! We are made in the image of God (Genesis 1:27).

          It is no wonder that Catholicism teaches that Islam serves the same God (see #841 in the Catholic Catechism; they must be lovers of pedo Moe).

    • Pedophiles aren't gay or straight, they are pedophiles. They sex of a child is not very relevant when prepubescent. A gay man is attracted to gay adult men, and a gay woman is attracted to gay adult women. Neither are pedophiles. And pedophilia is not catching, and gay people aren't more likely to "also" be pedophiles.

    • Because it is NOT TRUE. The overwhelming majority of men who prefer children as their sexual object identify and live as as heterosexual and conservative. The Catholic church has functioned as a haven and base of operations for such men for a very long time.

      • They do indeed often indentify as heterosexual, but just as many are also homosexual, bi-sexual, and liberal. Paedophilia is an equal opportunity abberation.

    • This isn't about gay or straight. This is about men who raped children. Gay or straight, if they abused and molested children, then they should be arrested and prosecuted. There is no rational reason for protecting them from justice, no rationale that justifies shielding them. They need to be exposed and removed from among us.

    • Being homosexual does not make one automatically a pedophile, so the sexual orientation should not factor into this reporting. Way to expose your homophibia.

  3. This is why many people feel that religion is simply criminality parading as morality so it can continue to rule society and reap the benefits of having everyone serve and protect it. For the longest time the Catholic Church supported slavery and fanatically opposed the abolition movement. It saw and still sees labor unions as gateways through which Godless socialism and Communism will come to take over “blessed” America. These are the same dogma that Mother Teresa used to discourage the poorest of the poor in India to protest their lives of rags and starvation while she worked tirelessly to gain more adherents and money for her religion, which is the world’s richest and most powerful. The evidence thus supports the conclusion that religion knows nothing about justice and morality except how to evade them. It represents the largest and most powerful unjust,and hence criminal organization on the planet as many others have maintained.
