Vatican Reeling As Pope Francis Admits There Is An
Army Of Over 8,000 Pedophile Priests
by NTEB News Desk
Pope Francis was quoted as saying there are
around 8,000 pedophile priests stationed around
the globe
In a BBC interview that the Vatican is struggling to spin, Pope Francis took the highly
unusual step of actually admitting that there are thousands and thousands of pedophile
priests in the Catholic Church worldwide. By their estimates about 8,000. This
mind-numbing admission has sent shock-waves through the highest levels of the Vatican
system.
Many survivors of abuse by priests are angry at what they see as the Vatican's failure to
punish senior officials who have been accused of covering up scandals.
In the interview, Pope Francis was quoted as saying that the 2% estimate came from
advisers. It would represent around 8,000 child-abusing priests out of a global
number of about 414,000. While the incidence of pedophilia as a psychiatric disorder in
the general population is not accurately known, some estimates have put it at less than
five percent.

"Among the 2% who are pedophiles are priests, bishops and cardinals.
Others, more numerous, know but keep quiet. They punish without giving the
reason," Pope Francis was quoted as saying.
Vatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi denied that Pope Francis had said that
there were cardinals who were pedophiles. Father Lombardi also denied that these were
the Pope's exact words.
