Catholic Church: Women Are To Blame For Pedophile Priests

Standard

Cardinal Raymond Burke

I wish the title of this post was a joke. A high ranking Catholic Cardinal abandoned all reason and embraced some extreme misogyny by somehow linking feminism in the Catholic church to declining morals in priests. (source)

Cardinal Raymond Burke, the rampant crisis of pedophile priests was brought on by women who “feminized” the church and discouraged “manly” men from participating in clerical life.

Cardinal Burke somehow manages to verbalize more anti-women hate then I have seen in a single speech in a some time. Including:

“Young boys don’t want to do things with girls. It’s just natural,”

“The radical feminism which has assaulted the Church and society since the 1960s has left men very marginalized,”

And then there’s the the logic that somehow links feminism to pedophilia:

“There was a period of time when men who were ‘feminized’ and confused about their own sexual identity had entered the priesthood; sadly some of these disordered men sexually abused minors; a terrible tragedy for which the Church mourns.”

I look forward to some frantic backtracking for this sexist, ignorant rant but I’m not optimistic. Shame on you Cardinal Burke. Simply incredible.

  1. When one thinks the Catholic hierarchy couldn’t go any deeper into depravity then one always gets proven mistaken. It’s like every prelate of the church drank the idiot Kool-Aid.

  2. The Catholic Church has always been in apostasy with the Gospel. For once Matthew 23:9, but more on the subject, Mark 10:6-9. And this is not mentioning many other blasphemous practices, such as the baptism of infants (1 John 2:12), or by sparkling, the “original sin” (Deuteronomy 24:16), etc. But more to the point Matthew 18:1-5,10,14 (Luke 9:46-48).
    And more…
