Pope Says Kiddie Porn “Normal”

Come closer, kiddies, let the Church fondle you with the hand of god.

The Catholic Church goes to great lengths to protect itself and its power. This is no easy task today, what with the massive worldwide child rape epidemic that’s embroiled the Vatican over the last, oh, few centuries or so.

But now Pope Benedict XVI has taken the Church’s unconscionable attempts to deflect responsibility for the despicable rape crisis to another level by claiming that pedophilia wasn’t considered an “absolute evil” until quite recently.

The 1970s, to be exact.

“In the 1970s, pedophilia was theorized as something fully in conformity with man and even with children,” the Pope shockingly declared last week.

“It was maintained– even within the realm of Catholic theology– that there is no such thing as evil in itself or good in itself. There is only a ‘better than’ and ‘worse than’. Nothing is good or bad in itself.”

So lecherous old men fucking little boys in the ass wasn’t “bad in itself?”

It gets worse.

The Pope also said that child pornography was increasingly considered “normal” by society, outraging victims of Church rape.

Andrew Madden of Dublin, Ireland fumed, “that is not normal. I don’t know what company the Pope has been keeping for the past 50 years.” Madden lambasted the Pontiff for not knowing, or ignoring the fact, that child pornography “starring” real children is child rape.

But the Catholic Church’s efforts to escape blame for this heinous global priest rape scandal on external cultural forces, like the liberalization of the 1960s and 1970s, is not fooling anyone.

“The Pope insists on talking about a vague ‘broader context’ he can’t control, while ignoring the clear ‘broader context’ he can influence,” said Barbara Blaine, head of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP), “[like] the long-standing and unhealthy culture of a rigid, secretive, all-male Church hierarchy fixated on self-preservation at all costs. This is the ‘context’ that matters.”
