Pope to Resign? Bookies Cut Odds to 3-1 As Pedophilia Found in his Munich Diocese

In recent weeks Europe has found the pattern we’ve seen in the U.S. for years: Pedophile priests allowed to thrive and when caught, not stopped, but transferred to new parishes, not just in every US diocese, but now likely in every diocese in the world.

Last week the epidemic erupted in the Regensburg Diocese in Munich, where today’s Pope Benedict was once Cardinal Ratzinger, and transferred a suspected pedophile priest to a job and new housing where he later abused children (see links below).

Amid all these wretched revelations, it’s like comic relief to find a story, Like this: Irish bookmaker Paddy Power said Friday it had cut the odds on Pope Benedict resigning after allegations of child abuse by priests in Germany gripped the Roman Catholic Church… Ireland’s biggest bookmaker said it had cut the odds from 12 to 1 to 3 to 1 following a “cascade of bets.” Continued here: Irish bookmaker slashes odds on pope’s resignation

Turns out when he was Cardinal Ratzinger in Munich, the current Pope Benedict transferred and tolerated pedophile priests just like every other Cardinal and Bishop in every other Catholic diocese in the world, as is being reported all over the world:

… the Pope’s own personal involvement in the case of at least one pedophile priest (known only as “H”) during his tenure as Archbishop (and Cardinal) of Munich and Reising.

(I guess they define “signing an order” as something other than “involvement.”
