The Salesians In Rome Are Talking About Punishing Dutch Salesians Over Legalization of Pederasty Remark
UPDATE: We were told that the Salesians have relieved both men from their positions as of 17:45 GMT.
Editor: what a terrible breach of trust that not only one of the rank and file, but the leadership itself is thoroughly corrupt, shiftless and morally numb. It's even more horrifying when you realize that the order of Dom Bosco has a mission to care for young boys and educate them. At least someone in Rome has a moral sense. Frankly, this is why the Inquisition should be restored. Such shameless monsters should be hurried to trial and given punishments all the way up to death, for their heresy and perfidity. This should put the Inquisition in proper perspective for those who still believe the Black Legend.
Incidentally, this is something which the left has long been promoting both in Europe and the United States, here. It just might be that people might not want to have to travel to far away places to enjoy forbidden pleasures.
Disciplinary measures urged against Dutch Priest, who has suggested the liberalization and decriminalization of Pedophilia.
Rome-Utrecht (kath.net/KAP)The Salesian Order has decided to distance themselves because of the statements and demeanor of a Dutch colleague's statements on the subject of pedophilia. The Order's Headquarters has strenuously condemned the deportment of Father B and suggest disciplinary measures, it was said in a statement on Monday.
The 73 year old religious has outed himself as a member of the militant organization "Martijn" for the liberalization and decriminalization of pedophiles. The Roman Headquarters of the Order criticized the statements of the Dutch Salesian Superior, P. Herman Spronck, who referred with sympathy for the behavior of Fr. B and said "certain relationships are not necessarily punishable".
Members of such organizations as Father B. is, are "absolutely unacceptable" with the principles, values and traditions of the Salesians, the General Procurator of the Order, P. Francesco Maraccani, was heard to say.in a signed statement. The Congregation has distanced itself from the conduct of a single colleague. You complain that with this announcement that we've injured a lot of people: "WE understand the pain and offer our apology in the name of the Order of Dom Bosco".
The Salesian Order will stay true to the pedagogical tradition of Don Bosco and to the teaching office of the Church, it said in the text. "The complete and total respect toward children, adolescetns and youth remain for us a fundamental and unalterable position", said the Order's Administration.
