New York Times: Die Vertuschung der Kinderschändung durch katholische Bischöfe geht weiter (SNAP)

  • Im Jahr 2002 unter Verwendung von Informationen, die der Öffentlichkeit bekannt waren, fand die Dallas Morning News, daß 109 von 272 aktiven US Bischöfen Missbrauch ignorieren, verheimlichen oder vergleichbares Fehlverhalten ermöglichen.
  • Heute sind 27 von ihnen noch im Amt, 7 von ihnen wurden befördert oder in eine andere Diözese versetzt.
  • 3 in Verbrechen verstrickte Bischöfe wurden befördert und leben/arbeiten nun im Vatikan

Analoges muß bedauerlicherweise für die deutschen Bischöfe/Kardinäle Müller, Zollitsch, Ackermann  und Marx festgestellt werden.

KindsRechtsMissbrauch jeglicher Art prägen immer noch nach 10 Jahren der Aufdeckung das  ‚Amtsverständnis‘ vieler Bischöfe.  – Ihre Methoden der Vertuschung sind nun jedoch deutlich raffinierter geworden.
Zusätzlich finden sie in Deutschland Schutz vor der Justiz durch das 1933 mit Hitler geschlossene Konkordat.

Footnotes

1. More than 6,000 priests and 100,000 victims

2. Admission from bishops that priests and bishops sexually abuse children:

3. Zero tolerance:

  • According to the policy of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, “Diocesan/eparchial policy is to provide that for even a single act of sexual abuse of a minor*—whenever it occurred—which is admitted or established after an appropriate process in accord with canon law, the offending priest or deacon is to be permanently removed from ministry and, if warranted, dismissed from the clerical state. … The diocesan/eparchial bishop is to exercise his power of governance, within the parameters of the universal law of the Church, to ensure that any priest or deacon subject to his governance who has committed even one act of sexual abuse of a minor as described below (see note) shall not continue in ministry. ” (http://www.usccb.org/issues-and-action/child-and-youth-protection/upload/2011-Charter-booklet.pdf, p 11-12.)
  • And was first announced in 2002 by then-President, Bishop Wilton Gregory: “Today, we have seen the passage of an important document in the history of our Conference of Bishops. From this day forward, no one known to have sexually abused a child will work in the Catholic Church in the United States.” (http://www.bishop-accountability.org/news5/2002_06_14_Hansen_AnalysisUS.htm)

4. Openness and transparency:

5. Dozens of culpable bishops

Because of the on-going secrecy surrounding child sex crimes and cover-ups in the Catholic Church, no one knows exactly how many bishops are ignoring, concealing or enabling wrongdoing, now and in the past.

But here’s what we do know:

– In 2002, using information that was already in the public arena, the Dallas Morning News found 109, out of the 272 active bishops ignoring, concealing or enabling wrongdoing.

–  Now, 27 of them are still in the same office today and 7 of them have been promoted or moved to a different diocese.

–  Three complicit US bishops have essentially been promoted and now live and/or work at the Vatican
