They abuse children, don't they

They abuse children, don't they Previous Next Close

Child abuse does not happen only in catholic church, of course. It happens everywhere, every time. But some naive people are surprised that it is also practiced by priests. As more and more cases emerge and more and more victims start to talk about their experiences from the youth, a big picture assembles itself. And it is becoming apparent that catholic church was systematically trying to hide this cases from the public, as much as possible, and to pretend that nothing was happening:

“Very much more serious is the role of Joseph Ratzinger, before the church decided to make him supreme leader, in obstructing justice on a global scale. After his promotion to cardinal, he was put in charge of the so-called “Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith” (formerly known as the Inquisition). In 2001, Pope John Paul II placed this department in charge of the investigation of child rape and torture by Catholic priests. In May of that year, Ratzinger issued a confidential letter to every bishop. In it, he reminded them of the extreme gravity of a certain crime. But that crime was the reporting of the rape and torture. The accusations, intoned Ratzinger, were only treatable within the church’s own exclusive jurisdiction. Any sharing of the evidence with legal authorities or the press was utterly forbidden. Charges were to be investigated “in the most secretive way … restrained by a perpetual silence … and everyone … is to observe the strictest secret which is commonly regarded as a secret of the Holy Office … under the penalty of excommunication.” (my italics). Nobody has yet been excommunicated for the rape and torture of children, but exposing the offense could get you into serious trouble. And this is the church that warns us against moral relativism! (See, for more on this appalling document, two reports in the London Observer of April 24, 2005, by Jamie Doward.)”

Christopher Hitchens, The Great Catholic Cover-Up.

Child abuse is a serious crime. But trying to cover it up…? Is it not the same?

Deutsche Telekom is first Dax 30 company to introduce women’s quota
Mar 15, 2010

-> 30 percent of management positions worldwide to be filled by women by end of 2015

Taking female advancement seriously: Deutsche Telekom is the first Dax 30 company to introduce a women’s quota. By the end of 2015, thirty percent of upper and middle management positions in the company are to be filled by women. This regulation applies worldwide. In addition to broadening its talent pool, Deutsche Telekom is also expecting to add value to the company in the long term with greater diversity at management level. More…

Pezza Pan: one could of course interrogate why only for management positions. But at least it is something. The french have already introduced women’s quota for their parliament some years ago.

Danas nam je takav dan

Jedan od onih.
Previše informacija,
promena, rečenica,
posećenih mesta,
svašta urađeno, mnogo zaboravljeno…
zvoni, pišti, sve stiže.

A onda dođem kući,
grlimo se Å nalica i ja,
smejemo (ne znam ni ja čemu).

Plešemo
i pevamo “Krokodila Genu”
na znanim i neznanim jezicima…

By Yuffie. Hvala :)
