Pope Francis named by eyewitness as child trafficker

pope-francis1

A new claim has been filed against Pope Francis.

From International Tribunal Into Crimes Of Church And State (ITCCS):

Pope Francis is named by former Argentine junta insider as “prime mover” in child trafficking network. Francis concealed Vatican – Crown of England “Holyrood Agreement” authorizing joint coverup of child rape in Anglican and Catholic churches

A former civil servant in the Argentine military junta who is living in exile in Spain claims that Pope Francis engineered the kidnapping and trafficking of children of political prisoners during the Dirty War of the 1970′s.

The man bases his claim on his personal involvement in meetings between Bergoglio and senior junta members that secured the child trafficking networks using Catholic orphanages and religious bodies as covers.

A Spanish reporter who has interviewed the former civil servant states,

“This guy is genuine and has many names and dates, and notes from meetings. Apparently, Bergoglio was promised the top spot in the Argentine church if he cooperated with the junta. So it’s small wonder that as the Pope, he’s made it harder for honest catholics to report child abuse, considering his own complicity.”

A powerful commercial about child abuse.

“Children are a gift from the Lord,
a reward from a mother’s womb.
A young man’s sons
are like the arrows in a soldier’s hand.
The man who fills his quiver with sons
will be very blessed.
He will never be defeated
when he opposes his enemy at the city gates.”

Psalm 127:3-5

Daycare Fight Club???

dover daycare

Every day parents drop their children off at daycare. They hope and pray their child has a good day, eats his lunch and snacks, doesn’t cry too much and plays with friends. They expect their licensed daycare program will offer a safe and secure haven while they’re at work.

It’s every parent’s nightmare to imagine their child is neither being loved nor safe while in someone else’s care. To hear that some workers at a daycare program are mistreating children is terrible. To learn that these workers are putting the little children into a fight club setting, forcing them to beat and fight with other little ones is worse than a nightmare.

But that’s the scenario discovered at a Delaware program. A policeman working on a separate case came across video of children in just such an unimaginable position. Children were taped fighting and if they cried or left the ‘fight’ they were put back in the situation.

A truly horrific scene and if found guilty these day care workers should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

Jerry Sandusky Must Be Glad He Is Not In Texas

Jerry Sandusky didn’t take the stand in his own defense today. The child sex abuse trial that has been center stage at least in Pennsylvania, should be drawing to a close soon – thankfully so. If the testimony presented by the prosecution witnesses did not turn one’s stomach, then the retaliatory spewing of Dottie Sandusky defending her husband on the stand must have.

But, no matter how fascinating it may be to watch the slow motion train wreck that is the Sandusky trial, the fact remains that the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania enabled the man to do what he did – assuming, of course, that he did anything inappropriate in the first place.

While Pennsylvanians might have really liked to see the Penn State administrators that turned a blind eye on Sandusky end up paying for it legally, they will probably have to settle for just seeing their careers in shreds. There have only been three successful cases against individuals that failed to report abuse in the Commonwealth, and the penalties they suffered were laughable. But, that isn’t too surprising, because our laws are extremely vague, and even the experts that are charged with educating “required reporters” on their duties to children cannot offer real definitions of abuse. If the Sandusky mess didn’t make you ill, then the investigative report by Pittsburgh’s ABC affiliate, WTAE, will definitely do the trick. Beyond the problems with real definitions of abuse, and defining the real duties of required reporters, Pennsylvania law is so vague that it is possible for someone to leave welts on a child, and not be charged with abuse.

This issue should be resolved legislatively, and quickly. But given the lack of efficiency in the Pennsylvania legislative branch, and more importantly, the partisan bickering, that’s not likely to happen. On a search of bills in Pennsylvania, using the keyword “abuse”, there are 371 results. Obviously, not all of them are related to child abuse, but there are a few in that list. Yes, they do seem to be intended to address some of the deficiencies in the current laws that have been brought in the spotlight by Sandusky. However, they are little more than band-aids on bullet wounds, primarily because they do not address the issues of vague definitions of abuse throughout the law, and highly restrictive requirements to prove abuse is occurring at all in the first place. In trying to err on the side of caution, our legislators have made it far too difficult to prove abuse, and even more difficult to hold adults that should be required to report abuse accountable when they fail to do so. Now, if this was Texas, there might not even be a Sandusky trial – down there, they kill their child molesters, at least when they’re caught red-handed. While it’s definitely a horrific situation for that family down there, at least they don’t have to worry about being dragged through it over and over again. The man is dead, there won’t be a trial, so they can focus on healing and moving on. That’s the way it should be.
