Now It’s Nuns

This must be historic. To my knowledge, this is the first time that nuns have been officially accused of sexual abuse. While Pope Ratz is dividing his time between accusing others of his crimes and apologizing for all the crimes those others have committed, pedophile priest abuse scandals are popping up all over. Not the least of which are the claims of sexual abuse in the Regensburg Diocese in Bavaria. This morning, the New York Times reported: “The claims of sexual abuse in Regensburg have attracted particular attention because the brother of Pope Benedict XVI, Msgr. Georg Ratzinger, directed a choir there from 1964 to 1994, raising questions about whether he would have known about sexual abuse at a school linked to the choir. Monsignor Ratzinger has said that he knew nothing about the sexual abuse, and he apologized for slapping students during his tenure.” Later on in the NYT news story, the Regensburg Diocese spokesman, Clemens Neck, was quoted. Neck said that in addition to the accusations against four priests and two nuns, other victims had come forward with accusations against men who had since died. Mr. Neck said both of the accused nuns have dementia. Lucky for them. So we’ve got Pope Ratz’s brother slapping kids around in his choir, four priests and two nuns molesting kids in his diocese, and neither Brother Ratz nor Pope Ratz knew anything about it. You believe that, I’ve got a worthless newspaper in Philadelphia run by a worthless public relations blowhard I’d like to sell you.
