Child Abuse: Is the Vatican Hiding Something?

The Roman Catholic Church is the epitome of morality. It is the perfect symbol of how Christians and Catholics value the rights of others as a means of living this world. However, the past two years has definitely tainted the once perfect reputation of the Vatican.

The Roman Catholic Church is the epitome of morality. It is the perfect symbol of how Christians and Catholics value the rights of others as a means of living this world. However, the past two years has definitely tainted the once perfect reputation of the Vatican.

Obviously, Vatican officials are more than frantic to rebuild a good reputation. The primary cause of the sudden diminish of trust is the child abuse cases filed and exposed by thousands of victims from around the world. The worst thing about it is the fact that Catholic priests are main suspects of these abuses.

 

Nonetheless, the Vatican has had its fair share of controversies over the past century. For once, the loyalty of priests towards the code of celibacy was questioned. Presently, Vatican bank is under investigation for fraud and money laundering. But then again, all these issues can be set aside and can be accepted by the public easily compared to the accusations of child exploitation.

Although the accusations are still at the trial and investigation stages, the reality remains that any form of sexual scandal involving the Church is considered gross and very sickening. The Pope himself had released a statement manifesting regret and a call to reconsider the teachings of Christianity. But as far as the majority is concerned, the Vatican seems to be hiding something.

If it is keen to solving the issue, no more than punishment for the guilty should be laid down, and if possible, it should be announced to the public. Although this seems to be a humiliation on the part of the whole Vatican institution, it also serves as an expression of the fairness, accountability, and transparency of the Church.

Logmion is here and says "Bring Back Petrus Romanus"
