The United Nations has demanded that the Vatican 'immediately remove' all clergy who are known or suspected child abusers and turn them over to civil authorities, in an unprecedented and scathing report.

The U.N. watchdog for children's rights said the Holy See should also hand over its archives on sexual abuse of tens of thousands of children so that culprits, as well as 'those who concealed their crimes', could be held accountable.

The watchdog's exceptionally blunt paper - the most far-reaching critique of the Church hierarchy by the world body - followed its public grilling of Vatican officials last month.

Surely they will "demand" the same of Islam where pedophilia is SOP. :whistle:

What this is really about is forcing the church to approve of birth control, abortion, and homosexuality.  The UN is also demanding that the church "change canon law" on these issues.

Yep. I'm catching up, was asleep most of the day, and just saw the other article posted.

May His Holiness bless the UN using the middle finger on each hand.

That gesture does have another name, you know.  On one of my transits to SE Asia the C.O. asked for a thousand volunteers to come to fly deck to give the "international sign of peace" to a TU-95 which was approaching to do some recon.  So one of the pictures they took back to Russia was a flight deck full of American sailors flipping them off.
