Germania, la Chiesa ha compensato 1380 vittime - CdT.ch

ROMA – La Chiesa cattolica tedesca ha già compensato 1.380 vittime di abusi sessuali. Lo ha annunciato mons. Stephan Ackermann, vescovo di Treviri, incaricato dalla Conferenza episcopale tedesca di far luce sugli abusi sessuali di sacerdoti, in un’intervista al quotidiano francese La Croix.

“Abbiamo avviato un processo di compensazione, di cui 1.380 vittime hanno già beneficiato. Si tratta di un approccio unico in Germania, che non esiste in nessun altro gruppo sociale o istituzione”, spiega Ackermann.

Il numero totale di bambini vittime di pedofilia commessi da sacerdoti o religiosi in Germania non è noto. La Chiesa ha offerto 5.000 euro a ciascuno di loro, ma alcuni hanno trovato l’indennizzo inadeguato. Il mese scorso la Conferenza episcopale ha avviato un ampio studio, oltre tre anni e mezzo, per fare luce su questo fenomeno. Per mons. Ackermann, “si tratta in primo luogo di raccogliere dati per una valutazione accurata della pedofilia”, ma anche per scoprire se c’è “una specifica dinamica nella Chiesa in materia di abusi sessuali”.

Franziskus: Heiligsprechung der Vertuscher von Vergehen klerikaler Kinderficker

The late Pope John Paul II and his top advisers failed to grasp the severity of the sexual abuse problem until late in his 26-year papacy, especially concerns about the troubled Legion of Christ order and its leader, the Rev. Marcial Maciel. But the Legion’s troubles were not news to the Vatican, according to a trove of 212 Vatican documents exposed in the 2012 book “The Will to Not Know” and placed online at www.lavoluntuddenosaber.com . Here’s a look at some of the more pointed criticism about Maciel from the archive, which also included plenty of letters from bishops and Vatican officials praising him and his order.

NSAs New iPhone App Catalogues and Maps U.S. Moslem Drone Killings

A New iPhone App Catalogues and Maps U.S. Drone Killings – Robinson Meyer – The Atlantic.

On Monday, the new publication First Look reported that electronically obtained metadata controls who, how, and when U.S. drones kill abroad. Journalists Glenn Greenwald and Jeremy Scahill write that that kind of information doesn’t only determine who is killed: Metadata on phone SIM cards determines how victims of the strikes are found.

“The drone program amounts to little more than death by unreliable metadata,” they write, paraphrasing an ex-drone operator.

Now, a new iPhone app lets you explore the consequences of that phenomenon. Named—fittingly—Metadata+, it catalogues and maps drone killings by the United States and is  now free and available for download.

Die evangelikal-katholische Koalition im weltweiten Glaubenskrieg – The Atlantic

Die evangelikal-katholische Koalition im weltweiten Glaubenskrieg

Pope Francis’s Challenge to the Evangelical-Catholic Coalition – The Atlantic.

Social issues have brought about a surprising alliance between Protestant evangelicals and Catholic bishops—but the pontiff’s focus on economic justice could complicate matters.

I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd.

—John 10:16

In Rome on Sunday, Pope Francis will preside over Easter Mass. He will address tens of thousands of Catholics gathered in St. Peter’s Square and tens of millions more who will gather around radios, televisions, and computer screens. But in the United States, it remains to be seen how Pope Francis will address an unlikely flock that both conservative Protestant and Catholic leaders have been grooming for political activism over the last two decades: white evangelicals.

From a historical perspective, this is the most improbable of alliances. The nascent Baptist movement was animated by condemnations of the Catholic hierarchy. Take this example from the Second London Confession of 1689, an early Baptist confessional document, which declared that the pope is “that Antichrist, that Man of Sin, that Son of Perdition, that exalteth himself in the Church against Christ, and all that is called God.” Early Baptist leaders in the U.S., including Roger Williams, John Smyth, and B.H. Carroll (founder of my alma mater, the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary), commonly held the position that the Catholic Church was “the whore of Babylon” from the Book of Revelation, a figure associated with the Antichrist and the embodiment of evil in the world. As late as 2000, Southern Baptist Seminary President Al Mohler declared on Larry King Live that the pope holds a false office, leads a false church, and teaches a false gospel.

It is well known that the political winds generated by the end of Jim Crow and the rise of the civil-rights movement transformed the once solidly Democratic South into a bloc of safe red states. But the way the same winds eroded historical evangelical-Catholic antipathies is less understood.    …… more

Why Jesuit CIA Director Brennan Visited Kiev: The Covert War Has Begun – Forbes

Why CIA Director Brennan Visited Kiev: In Ukraine The Covert War Has Begun.

Ukraine is on the brink of civil war, Vladimir Putin has said, and he should know because the country is already in the midst of a covert intelligence war. Over the weekend, CIA director John Brennan travelled to Kiev, nobody knows exactly why, but some speculate that he intends to open US intelligence resources to Ukrainian leaders about real-time Russian military maneuvers. The US has, thus far, refrained from sharing such knowledge because Moscow is believed to have penetrated much of Ukraine’s communications systems – and Washington isn’t about to hand over its surveillance secrets to the Russians.

If you have any doubts that the battle is raging on the ‘covert ops’ front just consider today’s events in Pcholkino where Ukrainian soldiers from the 25th Airborn Division handed over their weapons and APC’s to pro-Russian militiamen and pretty much surrendered. The Ukrainian commander was quoted as saying “they’ve captured us and are using dirty tricks”. This is the kind of morale-busting incident that can spread quickly. It doesn’t happen spontaneously and it often begins with mixed messages, literally – messages purporting to come from the chain of command but actually originate from the enemy’s dirty tricks department.   ……. more

Machtkampf tobt: Papst Franziskus verunsichert die deutschen Bischöfe – DIE WELT

Machtkampf unter momotheistischen Dogmatikern tobt:
Papst Franziskus verunsichert die deutschen Bischöfe
-  DIE WELT.

In der katholischen Kirche tobt ein Machtkampf zwischen dem obersten Glaubenshüter Gerhard Ludwig Müller und dem Chef der deutschen Bischöfe, Reinhard Marx. Wo steht dabei Papst Franziskus? Von Christian Eckl

Aus römischer Perspektive waren die katholischen Bischöfe in Deutschland ja immer schon ein wenig zu evangelisch. Das sah wohl auch der einstige oberste Hüter des Glaubens, Joseph Kardinal Ratzinger so. Und als Papst Benedikt sah er das wohl genauso. Vatikan-Beobachter und Kenner des deutschen Katholizismus reiben sich wohl deshalb im Moment die Augen: Denn hinter den Kulissen findet ein Machtkampf statt, der nicht ins bisherige Bild passt.

Ratzinger Epigone Kardinal Müller

Zwar ist es, wie schon früher, ein Machtkampf zwischen dem Präfekten der Glaubenskongregation – jetzt ist es Gerhard Ludwig Müller – und dem Vorsitzenden der Deutschen Bischofskonferenz, neuerdings der Münchner Kardinal Reinhard Marx. Das Besondere an der aktuellen Situation ist die Rolle des Papstes. Während Müller der Glaubenskongregation wieder den Einfluss aus der Amtszeit Ratzingers geben möchte, befördert Papst Franziskus dessen deutschen Kontrahenten aus München. Zudem führt der Pontifex Müller gern auch mal vor.    ……

“Der Präfekt der Glaubenskongregation kann nie ein Gegenpol zum Papst sein”, sagte Müller kürzlich in der katholischen “Tagespost”, deren Redaktion er selbst lange Jahre als Autor verbunden war. “Die Situation, in der wir stehen, ist vergleichbar mit dem Eintritt des Christentums in die griechisch-römische Kultur, in der Ehe, Familie, Sexualität in einem ziemlich deprimierenden Zustand waren”, sagte Müller. Man dürfe nicht auf eine Stufe zurückfallen, “die eher heidnischen Vorstellungen entspricht als der Schöpfungsordnung”.

Müller und Marx jedenfalls sind derzeit wohl die zwei wichtigsten Deutschen in der Kirche. Ob Müller so mächtig wird wie einst sein Vorgänger Joseph Ratzinger, hängt wohl auch von Papst Franziskus ab. Der Theologe aus Mainz-Finten hatte sich einst als Bischofsmotto “Dominus Iesus” gewählt – “Der Herr Jesus”. Ausgerechnet diesen Titel trug auch die umstrittenste Schrift Joseph Ratzingers als Glaubenspräfekt – dem großen Theologen scheint Müller nachzueifern. Koste es, was es wolle.
