Swiss theologian calls Pope Benedict “mastermind” of global pedophile cover-up

Swiss theologian Fr Hans Kung has written a furious letter to the Catholic bishops accusing the Pope of engineering the global cover-up.

“There is no denying the fact that the worldwide system of covering up cases of sexual crimes committed by clerics was engineered by the Roman Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith under Cardinal Ratzinger (1981-2005),” he said.

“During the reign of Pope John Paul II, that Congregation had already taken charge of all such cases under oath of strictest silence. Ratzinger himself, on May 18th, 2001, sent a solemn document to all the bishops dealing with severe crimes in which cases of abuse were sealed under the secretum pontificium, the violation of which could entail grave ecclesiastical penalties.

“With good reason, therefore, many people have expected a personal mea culpa on the part of the former prefect and current pope. Instead, the Pope passed up the opportunity afforded by Holy Week: On Easter Sunday, he had his innocence proclaimed urbi et orbi by the dean of the College of Cardinals [Cardinal Angelo Sodano],” write Kung.

The letter was published in several publications across the world on Friday as Pope Benedict celebrated his fifth year as Pope.
