Pope UN World Court Trial? With Same Crime MO in Every City, Pedophile Coverup Had to be Run by Bishops at the Top

Gearing up to put CofA Blog back in action this summer, found post from April 2010 about a UN investigation of The Pope and Vatican regarding pedophile priests:

While mainstream media focus on the Vatican gay comment last week, a UN Jurist has been saying since April 10th that an International Criminal Court investigation is the only way to resolve the Vatican sex crime crisis.   I doubt it’s an accident that the comment from the Vatican blaming gay priests for the epidemic of pedophiles in the Catholic Church came just as world attention was focusing on decades of sex crime coverups, after the four years I’ve observed Church manipulation of news and justice on this issue.  Now the story dominating the media is that inane quote blaming gays that even the Vatican denies now. 
More newsworthy is the call for a United Nations World Criminal Court investigation of the Pope that got drowned out in the media by the outcry over the Vatican claiming the pedophile problem has something to do with gay priests.
The Vatican has to be the source of these coverups.
How else would every city in the world have the same patterns or criminal Modus Operandi, as the crimes were carried out in each diocese?  Geoffrey Robinson, British UN Jurist, calls for an international criminal investigation of the Pope and the highest level of church hierarchy because their crimes resulted in at least a hundred of thousand adult victims of pedophile priests alive in the world today.  Figure, six thousand priests found so far in the United States, times ten victims average for each perpetrator, there are sixty thousand adult victims right now in the United States alone.
This was a holocaust against children.
At least a hundred thousand adult victims are alive today

U.N. Jurist Calls for Pope to be Tried in International Court 
Wednesday, April 14, 2010
Matt Cover, Staff Writer
( – A United Nations jurist and former war crimes judge has called for the “full weight” of international law to be brought against Pope Benedict XVI because of sexual abuse cases involving some Catholic priests, calling into question the Vatican’s claim that the pope is immune from legal proceedings because he is a head of state…  Read the story at CNS
Pope Benedict XVI and the church pedophile scandal: Q&A with David Gibson 
The Star-Ledger – (blog) – ‎Apr 13, 2010‎
By any objective standard the church has grossly violated the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child for decades. Is it time to formalize those violations …
UN judge calls for prosecution of Pope Benedict Raw Story: “Geoffrey Robertson, a renowned human rights lawyer and United Nations jurist, wants to see Pope Benedict put on trial for allegedly protecting predator priests. In a Guardian UK piece making its rounds this week in Catholic circles, Robertson demanded the pope be “put in the dock.”
Vatican does not deserve UN status‎ – Daily Pioneer: “, it may be appropriate to seek a review of the unique status the Roman Catholic Church enjoys at the United Nations. The Vatican slipped into the UN in the guise of the Holy See, the Government of the Roman Catholic Church, and sits on that august body as a Non-member State Permanent Observer.”
The pope should stand trial 
The Guardian – ‎Apr 13, 2010‎
“”The young age of the petitioner” refers to Kiesle, then aged 38, not the age of any of the boys he tied up and raped (11 and 13). It is completely clear that, together with a nod to the welfare of the “young” priest, Ratzinger’s primary concern, and the reason he refused to unfrock Kiesle (who went on to re-offend) was “the good of the universal church.”  This pattern of putting church PR over and above the welfare of the children in its care (and what an understatement that is) is repeated over and over again in the cover-ups that are now coming to light, all over the world.
“We are serious. It should be for a court to decide – a civil court, not a whitewashing ecclesiastical court – whether the case against Ratzinger is as damning as it looks. If he is innocent, let him have the opportunity to demonstrate it in court. If he is guilty, let him face justice. Just like anybody else.”

The keyword is Law. Ever since the church gave refuge to Cardinal Bernard Law of Boston to spare him the inconvenience of answering questions under oath, it has invited the metastasis of this horror. And now the tumour has turned up just where you might have expected — moving from the bosom to the very head of the church. And by what power or right is the fugitive cardinal shielded? Only by the original agreement between Benito Mussolini and the papacy that created the pseudo-state of Vatican City in the Lateran Treaty of 1929. This would be bad enough, except that it’s now possible that Ratzinger himself may be held personally, as well as institutionally, responsible for obstructing justice and protecting and enabling pederasts.  Contiued: Hitchens: Pope shouldn’t decide criminality Calgary Herald – by Christopher Hitchens.
UN Judge Says Pope Should be Prosecuted at International Criminal …
By By Susan Yoshihara, Ph.D. , Catholic Family & Human Rights Institute
“Robertson insisted that the International Criminal Court could be used as long as the Pope’s sovereign immunity was waived and as long as jurists can show that the sex abuse scandal was carried out on a “widespread or systematic scale,” the way that child soldiers were used in the wars in Sierra Leone and the way that sex slaves are traded internationally.”
