Suffer the little children - Irish Prime Minister attacks Vatican

Enda Kenny says Cloyne report on child sex abuse by priests highlights dysfunction and elitism in Rome

 The Irish PM, Enda Kenny, said the Vatican seemed more interested in upholding the church's reputation than confronting sexual abuse

Ireland's prime minister has launched an unprecedented attack on the Vatican, accusing it of downplaying the rape and torture of Irish children by clerical sex abusers.
Enda Kenny said in parliament that the Cloyne report, released on 13 July, had exposed the Vatican's attempt to frustrate the inquiry into child sex abuse.
During a debate on the fallout from the Cloyne findings, the taoiseach said the report had illuminated the dysfunction and elitism still dominant in the Vatican.
Kenny told the Dáil on Wednesday that Rome seemed more interested in upholding the church's power and reputation than confronting the abuse of Irish children by its priests and religious orders.

 An organization (The Roman Catholic church) that claims to serve the Lord Jesus Christ has had a long history of physically torturing and murdering adults in the most horrific manner in the Inquisition that lasted hundreds of years. But what is an even greater horror is the long history of rape, torture and murder of children by the Roman Catholic clergy around the world for an equal length of time. The publicly known cases number in the thousands but it is well-nigh certain that the cases of abuse that have never seen the light of day number in the millions. As the Irish PM claims the Vatican has always worked hard to protect its clergy and its (false) reputation as the church of Christ rather than to protect the innocent, particularly innocent child victims. By their fruits shall ye know them Jesus told his disciples and the fruits of the Roman Catholic church are all the evidence that is required to know that this organization may indeed be Roman, it may even be catholic but it is not the church of the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Matthew 7:15 – 21 / 15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. 21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 

Mark 10:13 – 14 / 13 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. 14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
