Jim Dorchak Yes I thought there were those using this scandal to their own ends. Unfortunately things are rarely clear and tidy. Often the weeds and the wheat are mngles together in the field. I think though that is not just about the Church in Chile. This has international repercussions. There are those who might think that they can so soft on the abuse of children because of this case or who … More

@BrTomFordeOFMCap I agree with you entirely. I am a north american. I am concerned with the abuse but to me this is just a smoke screen that the communists have nothing to do with. Yes it is a Police and Government matter that has been prosecuted, and now it is a CHURCH matter. Not a Communist matter.
On instance is about specific victims and abusers. The other is about the whole Church in Chile and that should be of more concern to all Catholics.

Jim Dorchak I have read with interest your previous comments and I can understand that local politics can make this situation more complicated than it appears from the outside. There are always those who jump on the bandwagon and those who will use any issue to bash the Church. There are also those who see the possibility of financial gain. Chile has its own political history no doubt as … More

A friar I know well here has dealt with a lot of the abuse cases here in my province. It took its toll on him. He is sceptical about Scicluna. May be the man has changed but when he was in Rome under Benedict his attitude seems to have been that the abuse was an Irish or American problem. I hope and pray he is not still that blind!

As the lady said in the interview there's probably loads of evid… More

Bergoglio puts a heretic at the head of investigations for cover up of Barros in the case of sexual abuse of Karadima, all Catholics should demand transparency and demand that the testimony of the victims be recorded and broadcast live laprensaaustral.cl/…/victimas-de-kar…

@Atanasio de Trento: I simply would have wished that Cruz, having prime-time on EWTN would have been able to at least mention one plausible instance where Barros would have "hushed up" Karadima's homosexual abuses. But he didn't. That is very disappointing. I have personally come to know alleged abuses where the alleged victims evidently were lying. Abuses are crimes, crimes need to be judged according to evidence, the evidence must be put on the table. No evidence, no condemnation.

Bergoglio ha designado al herético arzobispo de Malta Charles Scicluna como enviado a Chile para escuchar a víctimas en el caso del obispo Barros y compilar testimonios.

And now Bergoglio sends his other crony Scicluna to engineer a whitewash!

Don Reto Nay It was the testimony of the same victims that condemned Karadima as pedophile and it is the same victims of sexual abuse who accuse Barros of cover-up Karadima. Zero tolerance means that the victims must be heard and their rights must be defended when they themselves point out Barros as an accomplice. And now we know that Francis overturned the CDF ruling despite the fact that congregation found credible evidence that Barros covered-up for the predator Karadima.

I have listen to what the alleged victim Juan Carlos Cruz says during the show about Bishop Barros. Cruz is very elusive, nothing concrete, nothing clear. I would wish hard evidence but here we get only emotions, complains, and self-pitying. And he uses the word "I" too often, even speaking about "my truth".
