Pope Francis wants accused punished

The head of the Catholic Church Pope Francis has spoken for the first time about the sex abuse saga that has been a thorn in the flesh of his predecessor, Pope Benedict.

In a meeting with senior heads at the Vatican today, the Pope said the church must take tough actions against any priest who sexually abuses minors or children. According to him, children must be protected from such act, while those responsible for the diabolic crime that has rocked the church in many years must also face justice.

The sexual abuse saga was seen as one of the problems that worried Pope Benedict for years and probably caused him to back down as head of the church. Although his resignation did not push the matter under the carpets, many people have been waiting on Pope Francis to address the issue rather than stay mute.

With the Pope now showing concern for the church’s credibility and role model in the society, most of the sexual issues which have been uncovered and others yet to be brought to limelight would obviously be dealt with and in time. Although the pope’s action focuses more on children or minors, any priest who is having an extramural affairs with women must now think twice.

The sexual crisis concerning the Catholic Church is believed to have started in 2002, with the media raising an alarm to what seems to have be going on underground for ages, and the authorities at the top turning a blind eye to it.

    Hey Mizuh, thanks for this update and more grease to your elbows. The issue of sexual abuse really needs to be addressed within the Catholic church and I am happy the Pope is taking this stand on it. We hope more will come it with time. The priesthood is not a shortcut for lazy people to become rich and leave the life that they would not have had out of the priesthood. Priest have a choice to go my the strict vocational rites or quit, rather than destroying the name of the Holy church handed over to us by Christ to Peter and today Pope Francis I. We put this in prayer and pray for a total cleansing of this mess. Cheers.
