BENEDICT XVI RESPONSIBLE FOR CRIME WAVE
Shocking as these statements may be, there is a clear chainof evidence that backs them up.
Pope Benedict XVI, JosephRatzinger, bears a unique personal responsibility for theentire mess.
Moreover, his responsibility has
nothing at all 
to do with hiscurrent position as Supreme Pontiff. His actions forty yearsago helped set the stage of the crisis in the first place. And itwas his efforts to begin to undo the effects of those actionstwenty years later that will
inevitably 
cause the scandals toend.
Outrageous? Impossible? Crazy? 
Consider the following historical items and connect the dots yourself.It all hinges on the fact that the Inquisition (now called the "Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith"or CDF) has been running the cover-up since the counter-Reformation.
A BRIEF TIMELINE
Before the Scandals
There were few clergy abuse scandals for hundreds of years simply because clergy sexualabuse was covered up at first by the Inquisition and later by the secret system it had created.
1478 –
The Spanish Inquisition is founded by Ferdinand and Isabella. Run and jealously guarded by the crown, its prime focus is mainly on protecting the state fromdivisions caused by converted Jews and Moslems, as well as heresy and clergymisconduct.
1542
 – The Roman Inquisition is revived by Pope Paul III in the wake of the ProtestantReformation. From the beginning, the Roman version is mainly concerned withintellectual dangers to the Church at large, such as Lutheranism and modern scienceas well as clerical discipline. It publishes the
Index of Forbidden Books
, and remains tothis day (although under a different name) as it began: the most powerful department of the Vatican.
1559
– Pope Pius IV authorizes the Spanish Inquisition to actively seek out and punishpriests who seduce women through misuse of the sacrament of Confession, known as"
solicitation in the confessional
."
April 15, 1561
– The pope, pleased by its success, extends its sexual jurisdiction over all Spanish dominions. The recently revived papally-run Roman Inquisition is givensimilar broad powers.
The crime of solicitation
is first published as one that must be denounced to theInquisition under penalty of excommunication. This causes such a sensation in Spainthat the scribes are overwhelmed by the number of women complaining. It would bequietly removed from the list, even while later popes extended the powers and jurisdiction of the Inquisition over clergy sex cases.
Around 1565,
the confessional booth is invented in Milan by St. Charles Borromeo, asa screen between two chairs. The idea is to prevent sexual contact between priests andpenitents. Within half a century, the Vatican would order them installed in every churchin the world.
1622
– Pope Gregory XV decrees that priests are still obliged to individually informpenitents of their duty to inform on sexually predatory clergy, but the whole processbecomes cloaked in secrecy. In areas where no Inquisition is active, bishops areempowered to set up their own secret tribunals and inflict the most extremepunishments.
“Around 1565,
theconfessionbooth isinvented…to prevent sexual contact between priests and  penitents.” 
 
1646
– The
Piarists
, a highly successful order teaching poor boys across Italy, isabolished by the pope for child sexual abuse. Founded by the patron saint of Catholiceducation, St. José Calasanz, the order had been taken over by a pedophile ring, andfinally busted by the Roman Inquisition. The order will be quietly revived later, but thesescandals are successfully concealed until the opening of the Inquistion's own archivesat the dawn of the twenty-first century.
1820
– The Spanish Inquisition is abolished by decree. Archives show its continualintervention in clergy sex cases until the very end.
1836
"Maria Monk," an alleged escapee from a Canadian convent, is the first to break silence about sexual and other abuse in nunneries. She is nearly universally reviled anddisbelieved.
1867
– American historianHenry Charles Leapublishes a three-volume study oncelibacy in the Catholic Church which reveals the long and often futile struggle toimpose chastity on clerics, including the involvement of the Inquisition, and is largelyignored
1880
– Personal friend of Lincoln and former American priest, Charles Chiniquy, bitterly complains of the current ongoing dangers and results of solicitation in
The Priest, TheWoman, and the Confessional 
1908
– The now-Universal Roman Inquisition is renamed the "Supreme SacredCongregation of the Holy Office" and given authority across the globe.
1922
– Any knowledge at all of the Holy Office's role in sex crimes is now deemed tooscandalous. New rules were written. They have never been released.
1947
– The
Servants of the Paraclete
, a religious order dedicated to helping fallenpriests, is established with headquarters in Jemez Springs, New Mexico by Fr. GeraldFitzgerald.
1954
– An American ex-Franciscan, Emmett McGloughlin, in his autobiography firstreveals the existence of the Jemez Springs establishment as one "ecclesiastic prison"among others where priests are sent without trial for sexual offenses, alcoholism, andinsubordination.
1962
– Reporting laws that mandate disclosure of sex abuse appear for the first timeand McGloughlin publishes another book with a few more details on Jemez Springs.Prophetically, he writes, "The sexual affairs of priests in the U.S. are more closelyguarded secrets than the classified details of our national defense."
On March 16
, Cardinal Alberto Ottaviani, the head of the Holy Office, presents PopeJohn XXIII with
Crimen sollicitationis
, in English,
Instruction on the Manner of Proceeding in Cases of Solicitation
(pdf ). This is a highly secret document containing instructions for bishops on how to proceed trying cases of sexual abuse andhomosexuality among clerics.
In October 
, the Second Vatican Council begins.
Vatican II...
The secret system was inadvertently broken during the Ecumenical Council. Though ithappened as an unintended consequence of trying to protect progressive theologians, JosephRatzinger was undoubtedly largely responsible for this.
Immediately
after the Council began, the head of the liberal faction, Cardinal Josef Frings of Belguim, opposes Ottaviani's proposed plan of discussion. Ottaviani boycottsthe Council for weeks out of pique, giving liberals the chance to determine their ownagenda. Among them is
Joseph Ratzinger 
, one of Frings' trusted theological advisors.
On November 8, 1963
, Frings gives a rousing speech that Ratzinger wrote calling for reform of the Holy Office and its "medieval ways." It is enthusiastically applauded. PopePaul VI calls Frings that evening to tell him that the reform will go through.
Heated discussions over celibacy
and the clergy also consume the Council. Finally inthe
Decree on the Life and Ministry of Priests
, carefully coded language reveals that1)
priests will no longer be punished
for sexual transgressions but treated with "withfraternal charity and magnanimity" and 2)
celibacy is not necessary
for the priesthoodbut would still be demanded of Latin-rite priests. This sets the stage for the great clergyexodus.
On December 7, 1965
, the very last day of the Council, the reform of the Holy Office isannounced. It will henceforth be called the "Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith"(CDF). Some secrecy will be ended, priests would be given certain rights of appeal andrepresentation, and the
Index of Forbidden Books
will be discontinued. Ominously, theCDF is given the power of questioning faith and morals anywhere in the entire Church.Only the Pope retains more power.
In 1922 
, any knowledge of the Holy Office's role insex crimes isnow deemed tooscandalous.New ruleswere written.They havenever beenreleased.
 
... and After 
It took some time for the "secret system" to break down after Vatican II. It took just as long for Cardinal Ratzinger to fix it.
June 14, 1967 –
Finally bowing to pressure, Pope Paul IV issues an encyclical thatremoves the restrictions of the Holy Office on clergy wishing to leave, and the flight of disgruntled religious begins.
1968
– Returning to academic life, Ratzinger is traumatized by anticlerical studentprotesters. His doubts about the direction of the Council grow, and he becomes areactionary.
Mid-1970s
– With few other options available, the Paracletes' Jemez monasterybecomes a major center for treating priests with sexual problems, over the objections of founder Fitzgerald, who wanted to imprison them on an island for life. Instead, the order opens up more treatment centers, even halfway houses, and loans priests in treatmentout to local communities without warning anyone. At some point, they are advised todestroy most of their files by the bishops, and advised the New Mexico archdiocese todo the same.
1981
– Pope John Paul II names Ratzinger as Prefect of the CDF. The former protestor is now the "Vatican's enforcer." He begins a highly publicized series of campaignsagainst liberal causes that have sprung up since the Council – and many of his former allies, too, such as Hans Kung and Karl Rahner. National bishops councils establishedby the Council are also opposed as threats to papal power.
1983
– Canon Law(pdf ) is revised, complete with a statute of limitations for clergy sex crimes.
1984
– The first significant modern scandal begins with the exposure of Gilbert Gauthe,a serial child molester in Louisiana. His attorney, Ray Mouton, calls for help. PriestsTom Doyle, then working in the nunciature in Washington, and Michael Peterson, apsychiatrist who had recently founded a treatment center for troubled priests, becomeinvolved. Together, they write a proposal for American bishops,
The Problem of Sexual Molestation by Roman Catholic Clergy: Meeting the Problem in a Responsible Manner 
,most simply known as
The Manual 
 
). It calls for a "crisis control team" to fly aroundthe country putting out hotspots, with little concern for victims.
1985
The Manual 
is presented to the bishops at their June meeting. It would even beshown to Pope John Paul II. Nothing happens.
1992
– The scandals first receive extensive national media attention when the notoriousJames Porter cases surface. His tracks lead to Jemez Springs, which leads to scandalsbreaking out in New Mexico. By this time, some 1,200 other religious had also passedthrough their programs.
American bishops
find themselves again frustrated by Rome, which blocks their proposals.
1993
– Archbishop Robert Sanchez of New Mexico becomes the first high-rankingprelate to fall as his affairs are exposed on CBS'
60 Minutes
.
At World Youth Day
in Denver, Pope John Paul II infamously dismisses the crisis as alargely North American affair due to a corrupt secular society.
Late 1990s
– Despite the pope's wishful thinking, the crisis becomes truly global.Scandals continue throughout the United States, too many to mention, but also breakout across Canada, Ireland, Australia, Austria, even Poland.
The Servants of the Paraclete
scale back their treatment programs in New Mexico.Meanwhile, two priests, a former client and one of their own, are murdered in separateevents by men claiming they were abused by them.
1997
– Ratzinger opens the Inquisition's own secret archives to select scholars,allowing for the rediscovery of the Inquisition's role in the cover-up.
April 30, 2001
– The CDF secretly issues
Sacramentorum sanctitatis tutela
,or 
Safeguarding the Sanctity of the Sacraments
(link)under Pope John Paul II's name. This replaces
Crimen sollicitationis
with a policy even more secret and ruthless thanbefore. All priestly sex crimes are to be placed under the CDF, which usually willauthorize the bishops to conduct trials themselves. However, clerical homosexuality isnot even mentioned.
May 18, 2001
– Ratzinger quietly adds the cover letter (pdf ) for the new policy, makingcases "subject to the pontifical secret." In other words, absolute secrecy is imposed onall who know about them under pain of automatic excommunication that only the popecan forgive.
2002
– American bishops issue the so-called "Dallas Charter" calling for audits and zerotolerance.
