Remember the 9th commandment

Ex-pope breaks silence, denies cover up

(CNN) – Retired Pope Benedict XVI says he never tried to cover up the sexual abuse of minors by Catholic priests, breaking his post-retirement silence to address one of the greatest threats to his legacy as a church leader.

I think that Pope Benedict was better off maintaining the virtue of silence; it is much worse to tell a lie than not to say anything at all. The ninth commandant is “thou shalt not lie”.

Benedict is trying to salvage some of his reputation from when he was pope for some of the bad decisions he made and there were a few. That is the reason he abandon ship when he did.

I have always maintained; the pedophile was bad but sick in the head; the people that covered up these devious sexual acts with young kids were more culpable then the perpetrators because they had all their marbles. It was all concealed for the almighty dollar.

How about the sick priest that admitted to molesting 400 deaf and blind kids. His punishment was to be exiled to Ireland for life with a full pension. How about those shamrocks???? The list is far too lengthy to get into.

Benedict better go make a good confession.
