The Vatican posted a new set of rules on its Web site today for how to handle pedophile cases. Apparently, the rule now is to report them to the police.
The quick response–a mere two weeks after reports started turning up in the news concerning Pope Benedict’s wild and heady days as a young archbishop–stunned critics as the Church normally embraces new ideas, like our heliocentric solar system, once every 500 years.
And just to drive the point home about forgiveness, the Vatican followed up this announcement with another one forgiving The Beatles.
My entreaties for peace fell on deaf ears (deaf eyes?) last week. I offered you people spaghetti and puppies, but look at us now: talking about potentially fighting in the streets if conditions are just right. We’re on the verge of a revolutionary civil world war, and it’s all because some people refuse to stop talking about threats.
Oh, did you think I was gonna take your side in this, Democrats and people who don’t like to be touched? No freakin’ way.
There are institutions to protect, practices to defend, and you have called down the thunder by daring to speak your opinion and effect change. And then, when we respond like a rational mob, you dare to accuse us of getting violent or angry?

It’s one thing to ride around a town in a big, white pedo-van while toting free candy to kids. But if you’re in high school-that’s still creepy, especially considering that you might be so young that it’s almost not creepy that you’re lusting over children. Almost.
A student from Souma City was arrested yesterday for being the one that heads up a child pornography BBS website. He did his “work” on free computers available in the city’s culture center. Not the brightest perv ever.
What does he have to say for himself? Get this:
“I like looking at nude boys, and had a collection of about 1,500 photos. I wanted people with similar interests to share the same joy.”
They have organizations for that, buddy. They’re not exactly looked highly upon either. It’s being reported that he was busted specifically over six photos of naked boys under 10 years of age, posted on the site between July and December 2009. Ewwww.
… So, the pedophile says — get this — he says, “Is that a 22-inch screen in your lap, or are you just short, dark and confined to your bed?”
