Reforme nastavljanjem po starom

Telegraph od izbora  pape Franje jako prati što dotični radi, obično u poprilično pohvalnim tonovima. Dive mu se kako je aktivan, divan, krasan, dobar,… eto, čak je nekim nekršćanskim — saklonimebože — ženama! oprao noge! Wow! Svetac čisti! Trebalo ga je beatrificirati još prije nego mu se djed rodio! (zanimljiv raspon godina opranih i izljubljenih nogu :twisted:)

Tako je i sada Telegraph popratio Franjinu najavu “odlučne akcije” protiv pedofilnih svećenika. Pohvalno, zar ne?

Preosimo dijelove.

“The Holy Father in particular asked that the Congregation, continuing the line adopted by Benedict XVI, act decisively in cases of sexual abuse, promoting above all measures to protect minors, help for those who in the past suffered such violence and the necessary procedures against those who are guilty,” the Vatican said in a statement.

Izvrsno! Treba “djelovati odlučno”, na način da se “nastavi djelovanje Benedicta XVI”, onog istog koji je skrivao pedofile cca 2 desetljeća prije nego je postao papa i to je nastavio raditi sve dok nije posanaderio i zbrisao u vatikansku vilu “Malo vitra” (ili kako se već zove ta vila, vjerojatno samo prevedeno na latinski). Za zaboravne, da podsjetimo malo o tom Ratzingerovom/Benedictovom “odlučnom djelovanju”:

Eto, lijepo i odlučno je određivao da pedofile treba brižno čuvati, jer su oni naše blago. Ili tako nekako. Zaboravio čovjek tko je ono naše blago, ali sjeća se da je imalo veze s djecom.

Sve se pitam jesam li jedini kojeg Franjina “nova odlučnost” podsjeća na Ivinu “novu pravednost”.

Da nastavimo s citatima iz Telegraphovog članka:

“The Holy Father gave assurances that the victims of abuse are particularly in his prayers.” Francis, the former archbishop of Buenos Aires, instructed bishops around the world to take a tough line on abusive priests, in order to rebuild the credibility of the Church.

Blago žrtvama, on se moli za njih. Nastavit će politiku (zataškavanja) svog prethodnika, ali će barem recitirati pjesmice posvećene žrtvama te njihove mastodonstske organizacije. Tko zna, možda odrecitira i neku za nas koji se klanjamo Đavlu. Ili barem za one “zlostavljače djece” kojima se čak i Crkva protivi (normalnom svijetu poznatiji kao “homoseksualne osobe koje djeci pružaju dom ispunjen ljubavlju i brigom” — link).

Ajde, barem je iskreno priznao da mu je na srcu i duši iskrena briga za oporavak… kredibiliteta Crkve (a žrtve se već ponadale da će se netko i za njih nešto konkretno napraviti).

Francis’s predecessor, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, was credited with addressing the issue on several fronts.

He disciplined Father Marcial Maciel, the notorious head of the Legionaries of Christ, a traditionalist religious order, who had abused children for years.

In 2009 he issued a heartfelt apology to victims of clerical abuse in Ireland, telling them: “You have suffered grievously and I am truly sorry… it is understandable that you find it hard to forgive or be reconciled with the Church.” He expressed “shame and remorse” for the crimes perpetrated by Irish priests.

Slava… interesantna je to zvjerka. Kako umjetnicima skoči popularnost kad napuste ovaj svijet, tako je odjednom i Benedict postao poznat po žustroj akciji protiv pedofilije. I to ne bilo kakvoj! Promijenio je čovjek Svijet. Disciplinirao je jednog — wow! jednog! — svećenika i rekao žrtvama u Irskoj da mu je fakat žao! Pa što bi mi više?! Ne očekujemo valjda da bi žrtve zlostavljanja u toj istoj Irskoj trebale biti zadovoljne makar samom isprikom, kad već nema nekih konkretnih akcija od strane Crkve?! Whoops, isprika fail.

Dobro, Franjo je barem elokventniji (a i ne liči na Dartha Sidiusa, pa lakše ispadne pozitivac) te će valjda prazne riječi upakirati u ljepši celofan. Žrtvama neće pomoći, ali bit će sedma sila sretna, a to je i jedino važno (prisjetimo se: cilj je krpanje kredibiliteta Crkve). Nećemo valjda brinuti o djeci?! Bit će djece! Ionako stalno naučavaju svoje poslušno stado da treba štancati djecu, bez objašnjavanja kako se i brinuti za njih i bez pomoći u, recimo, financiranju te djece.

The wording and timing of Francis’ statement was significant, said Dr Rebecca Rist, a historian of the papacy at the University of Reading.

“By proclaiming this message so early in his pontificate Pope Francis is sending a very strong signal to the world that he is willing to tackle the issue head on.

(It shows) that he is entirely in tune with the sentiments of his predecessor, Benedict XVI, who on his election as Pope also spoke strongly against the ‘filth’ of clerical sex abuse.”

“It also signals that Pope Francis is serious about his recent messages of reform and renewal in all quarters of the Church.”

Vidite, ozbiljan  čo’ek, čak i uvažena doktoruša to tvrdi.

Srećom, Telegraph nije (još?) sasvim potpao pod čari blagog lica i velikog, pametnog čela dragog nam Franje, pa iznosi i drugu stranu (čit. dosadne žrtve koje su ionako svećenicima dale što su ovi htjeli, pa kud se sada stalno guraju)?!

But victims of clerical sex abuse were not impressed.

“Once again, as has happened hundreds of times already, a top Catholic official says he’s asking another top Catholic official to take action about paedophile priests and complicit bishops. Big deal,” said Barbara Dorris, from the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests.

She said Francis had called his credibility on the issue into question within the first 24 hours of his papacy, when he met Cardinal Bernard Law, an American cardinal who resigned in disgrace amid allegations that he had covered up years of abuse by priests.

Cardinal Law resigned as archbishop of Boston 10 years ago, after issuing a statement begging forgiveness, and left the US after being accused in dozens of law suits of failing to protect children.

He took up residence in the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome. As the papal basilica in Rome, it was where Pope Francis went to pray on the morning after his election.

“One of the first actions Pope Francis took was to visit perhaps the most high profile corrupt prelate on the planet, who remains a powerful church official despite having been drummed out of Boston for hiding and enabling crimes by hundreds of child molesting clerics,” said Mrs Dorris.

“Kids won’t be helped by a “continuation” of the tiny symbolic gestures taken by Pope Benedict. Kids will be helped by decisive changes. Thus far, Pope Francis hasn’t even discussed, much less adopted, even a single reform. In fact, by visiting Law, the pope has continued to ignore – and thus encourage – heinous wrongdoing.”

“We must insist on new tangible action that helps vulnerable children protect their bodies, not old vague pledges that help a widely-discredited institution protect its reputation.”

Dream on, drage žrtve. Kako sam u svojoj prvoj analizi rekao: nije Franjo tu da mijenja praksu i donosi novo, nego da čuva i ušminkava staro. Izrazio je to lijepo i pohvalama svom prethodniku, pozivima na kontinuitet, nabacivanjem blata na nevjernike, govorom mržnje prema homoseksualnim parovima,… zašto biste vi bili izuzeti? Vaše vrijeme je prošlo kad navršili 13-14 godina i više niste zanimljivi, osim za štancanje nove, svježije djece…
