Priest abuse victims’ group says ‘dirty dozen’ shouldn’t be next Pope

The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests released a list of clergy they believe should not be considered when choosing the new Pope. Capture

SNAP’S ‘Dirty Dozen’ names nine international cardinals and three cardinals from the United States including Cardinal Sean O’Malley from Boston, Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York and Cardinal Donald Wuerl of Washington, D.C.

Activists say the priests should not be considered due to their poor handling of child sex abuse claims against clergy.

A Vatican spokesman says the list will not influence the selection of the next Pope.

A date has not been set for the Papal Conclave where Cardinals will choose the next head of the Catholic Church.

    FINALLY! Someone bringing up the obvious~ The Catholic church needs to address this problem. They have paid out millions of $$$ for these sex abuse cases, and more will come, if they don't address the elephant in the room. So, what are they doing now?? Eating and drinking and being pampered like they are something special, while in Rome? Com'n people – they are a bunch of pampered men -that think that are a world above the rest of the world…It's sad – – there are people the really believe!

      You know I went to Catholic grade school and it is so strange/odd that they brainwash children into thinking that these people priests/nuns are some how better – Godlike – worthy of worship themselves. I am so thankful that as an adult I have been able to discern for myself what filthy false pigs these people really are. And now since the West has woken up to the fact that these people are false prophets they are preying on third world people so they can continue to line their fat little pockets with golden coins. When will this end. Has anyone read about the gay prostitution ring being run right out of the vactican? I'm sorry but at this point I believe that the Catholic Church as been purposely infiltrated by homosexual men with an agenda to tear down Christian beliefs. I am not anti-gay at all but something is definitely up. And the complete morons who allowed to this happen are just that complete morons. Imagine a country that knowingly hides and protects pedophiles – at this point I am at a loss as to why the UN does not step in and close down their operation. Someone needs to warn the Asians and Africans that these people are nothing more than a Mafia like organization that only wants their treasure.

      How can a true Christian even step into a Catholic church? Catholics I agree are so totally blinded and yes so utterly DUMB. Brainwashed as children and never having the sense to open their eyes and see that they are all being led over a cliff. Honestly I'm telling you they must use brainwashing techniques…..otherwise how could anyone in their right mind continue to follow these obviously evil men. What more proof do they need?

      they do not need women……What they need and are asking for is the Wrath of God….and I'm pretty sure he has had enough.
