“There are cases of sexual abuse that come to light every day against a large number of members of the Catholic clergy. Unfortunately it’s not a matter of individual cases, but a collective moral crisis that perhaps the cultural history of humanity has never before known with such a frightening and disconcerting dimension. Numerous priests and religious have confessed. There’s no doubt that the thousands of cases which have come to the attention of the justice system represent only a small fraction of the true total, given that many molesters have been covered and hidden by the hierarchy.”THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: Leave it to the liberal neo-socialists in the biased mainstream news media to execute a plan carefully crafted by their forerunners in Germany's National-Socialist (Nazi) Party. I wish I could say I am shocked, but I can't. This is exactly the kind of playbook I would expect the mainstream news media to get their strategy from.
An editorial from a great secular newspaper in 2010? No: It’s a speech of May 28, 1937, by Joseph Goebbels (1897-1945), Minister of Propaganda for the Third Reich. This speech, which had a large international echo, was the apex of a campaign launched by the Nazi regime to discredit the Catholic Church by involving it in a scandal of pedophile priests.
Two hundred and seventy-six religious and forty-nine diocesan priests were arrested in 1937. The arrests took place in all the German dioceses, in order to keep the scandals on the front pages of the newspapers.
On March 10, 1937, with the encyclical Mit brennender Sorge, Pope Pius XI (1857-1939) condemned the Nazi ideology. At the end of the same month, the Nazi Ministry of Propaganda headed by Goebbels launched a campaign against the sexual abuses of priests. The design and administration of this campaign are known to historians thanks to documents which tell a story worthy of the best spy novels...

Once again, The Catholic Knight will cite the facts because we all know the Nazi (ahem! I mean "Liberal") mainstream news media never will.
1) It is a statistical fact that sexual-abuse and cover-up only accounts for less than 5% of the clergy and involves less than 0.1% of underage minors in the Catholic Church.
2) It is a statistical fact that over 80% of all sexual abuse cases in the Catholic Church involve male victims between the ages of 11 and 17 years in what is clearly a predator homosexual relationship.
3) Insurance companies report that cases of sexual abuse and cover-up are slightly higher in Protestant churches.
4) According to a US government survey, sexual abuse and cover-up is literally 100 times higher in America's public schools than in the US Catholic Church.
5) All of the records and data available to date indicate that no other person in the Vatican has done more to stop sexual abuse and cover-up than Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, currently Pope Benedict XVI.
That's the news you'll never hear or see from our liberally biased mainstream news media. Instead what we'll hear, see and read is Nazi hype, blown way out of proportion, while much bigger problems in the public schools are swept under the rug. Yes, I'm talking about ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and even FoxNews to some degree. I'm talking about the New York Times, Washington Post, and other liberal rags of the same ilk. They employ the tactics of Nazis, one and all, is there any reason we should refrain from calling them what they are?
Now please don't misunderstand. We shouldn't fault them just for reporting the news. After all that is their job. Rather we should fault them for the way they report it. They are careless, innacurate and grossly disproportionate. It goes well beyond incompetence. This is intentional! Let's not forget the elephant in the living room. This pope is remarkably "conservative," and he's been doing some very "conservative" things lately, if we can use that term in reference to religion. (Some might prefer the term "orthodox.") While the mainstream news media is remarkably "not conservative," and frankly there are many reasons why they would dislike him because of that. So like the Nazis before them, they raise the phantom menace of sexual abuse, blow it way out of proportion, creating an alternate reality to brainwash the population against him and the religion he represents.
We shouldn't be surprised though. After all, they're only parroting those German national-socialists who went before them. Sieg - Heil!
