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.

    • True, but the profession of becoming a Catholic Priest is a magnet for attracting pedophiles to that career.
      Especially when you get protection from the leadership.
      Not sure how someone that’s not allowed to marry, to have children, or to have sex, can truly counsel a marriage or counsel a struggling family. Or, even have the authority to listen to your confessions and give out forgivenesses.
      The entire Catholic System seems flawed to me but I was raised Protestant.
      Our churches have their own struggles, but pediphillia is not nearly as much a problem, as it is in the Catholic system which makes it easy to hide.
      In my opinion, there is no greater crime than being a pediphile and just the thought of some Pediphile standing before a church congregation as a representative of JESUS MAKES MY BLOOD BOIL.

  1. So Archbishop Josef Wesolowski is under house arrest. So what? That just means they’ll bring kids in for him to rape in his nice cozy Vatican apartment. I’m sure he has the run of Vatican City as well. It might be different is he was walled up in a small windowless cell with just a slit to give him his meal through.

    The international community, or at least Italy, should storm into the Vatican and take him out. The Vatican is NOT a legitimate country. It was created by an illegal treaty with Benito Mussolini. It should be nullified and the Vatican placed under international law or at least the laws of Italy.

  2. I wonder if there will be a significant upheaval within the church, and that they will, for once, admit that they have done a lot of damage to humanity after all…
    One can hope…

  3. The Dominican Republic should send all representatives of the vatican out until they hand over Wesolowsk. That means the priests, effectively closing the churches there.
