We have heard about and read your comments on the "child abuse" crisis: http://www.catholicherald.co.uk/news/2015/09/27/pope-francis-child-abusers-in-the-church-will-be-held-accountable/
But despite all the anguish you rightly displayed about these terrible crimes, you never alluded at all to the reality, to the actual details of this abuse. It is not child abuse, per se. It is, in fact, the homosexual buggering of adolescent boys which is the major issue here, and always has been.
Is it so hard for Your Holiness to speak the words, "homosexual rape of boys"?
Is it so difficult to state that this grave mortal sin is at the heart of this abuse? What is so important, that you have to maintain a deafening silence on these acts of sodomy, and call them by name?
The evidence on this is conclusive and beyond doubt. The vast majority of these cases involve homosexual priests, Bishops and Cardinals molesting young males. The number of girls molested is infinitesimal by comparison.
Why don't you speak clearly on this? What or whom are you afraid of?
A sin which cries to Heaven for vengeance means that those who remain silent about it - especially when it is their duty to condemn it - will also feel God's vengeance.
The Mercy Show has come and gone in the USA, Your Holiness. Despite all the mercy shown, the pearls cast before the swine if you will, I hope you will forgive me for being doubtful that it had any effect at all on those recipients of your mercy.
