    Vatican City raises age of consent from 12 to 18 following scandals

    Pope Francis has announced an overhaul of the Vatican City criminal code, with the age of consent raised and stiffer punishments for pedophiles within the city state

    "However Francis has also made it a crime for agents of the church to leak Vatican information after Vatican butler to Pope Benedict XVI, Paolo Gabriele, leaked information about corruption within the Catholic church - potentially discouraging whistleblowers."


    "‘In the real world, this changes virtually nothing. It’s is precisely the kind of ‘feel good’ gesture that Vatican officials have long specialized in: tweaking often-ignored and ineffective internal church abuse guidelines to generate positive headlines but nothing more."

    I have long believed that the worst mistake societies - all societies - have ever made is that we turned the definition and application of "morality" over to the churches. Churches are composed of men not gods. And as such some very unscrupulous and absolutely immoral men took control of these cults - and lets not mince words here, big and small they are all cults - and those men hijacked any "spiritual" messages to suit their own lust for power. That a former nazi could become the CEO of one of these cults is all the proof anyone could need of the total "moral" bankruptcy of this organization. Further, this same man was wholly responsible for and spent many years protecting and defending a very large group of utterly evil men who for decades upon decades engaged in the serial buggery of children!!
    Because of this - not to mention a vast history of fear, hate and wholesale bloodshed - whatever social authority this organization may once have possessed has been lost utterly.
    And now this same man together with his specifically chosen lackey are attempting to invalidate and, through its political threats eradicate my love for my husband. The kinds of deliberate lies and grotesque fear mongering perpetrated by these men and their dangerously ignorant victims have an obvious historical connection to Ratzingers early years. It's called Facism.
    Is this an exaggeration? No absolutely not! It is an appalling truth.
    While I cannot speak for anyone but myself I can speak of several hundred million other people around the globe that are sickened to their souls and profoundly fed up with these deadly cults. Cults that seem to believe that they still have a free hand to involve themselves unchallenged in the affairs of reasonable rational men and women. Even a non Christian will be sickened by the hypocrisy of a man and an organization that purports to adhere to the principals of the "Prince of Peace" while supporting and engaging in the persecution and slaughter of those who's only "crime" is loving each other.
