UN Slams Vatican For Protecting Priests Over Child Abuse by Built2last: 12:04pm On Feb 05
The UN has denounced the Vatican for "systematically" adopting policies allowing priests to sexually abuse thousands of children.

The UN watchdog for children's rights said the Holy See must "immediately remove" all clergy who are known or suspected child abusers.

It heavily criticised the Vatican's attitudes towards homosexuality, contraception and abortion.

The Vatican has set up a commission to fight child abuse in the Church.

In a report released on Wednesday, the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC) said the Holy See should open its files on members of the clergy who "concealed their crimes" so that they can be held accountable.

The committee said it was gravely concerned that the Holy See has not acknowledged the extent of the crimes committed.

It comes after Vatican officials were questioned in public last month over why they would not release data and what they were doing to prevent future abuse.

In December, the Vatican refused a UN request for data on abuse, on the grounds that it only released such information if requested to do so by another country as part of legal proceedings.

The Vatican is expected to issue a statement on the report later on Wednesday.

They should support child abuse, yes (not homosexuality). However, they ought to be removed for present or future abuses, not for the past.
Most of us, if not all, have done a few bad things in the past for reasons best known to us.

Same UN that stood beside EU/USA while they slaughter innocent people (children inclusive) in Afghan, Iraq and Pakistan.

Same UN that turns the other way while USA funds terrorist in Syria.

Please UN should go and sleep.

In as much as I am a staunch catholic member, I do believe that there are hidden facts and myths about catholics and their priest, which we the followers are far from knowing

Good move. But the UN needs to slam The Vatican the more for looking away at those Priests that are into married women and wrecking havoc in people's homes. Why can't they just marry and leave people's wives and children alone?.
BTW, I'm still a Catholic.
