"Sex Crimes and Vatican"


On google video people can browse the “top 100” of the most viewed videos, divided by country. In the Italian top 100, the most viewed video real viagra online without prescription is a documentary that was transmitted by BBC in October 2006. The title is “Sex Crimes and Vatican” and is about priest and sexual abuse.

I’m not a lawyer, but the Vatican here says that the sexual assault of priests to minors under 18 years old should be reported to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and that, for these kinds of crimes, there exists what’s known as the pontifical secret. The document is dated May 18, 2001 and signed by Josephus Cardinal Ratzinger.

Ratzinger was named as a defendant in a civil lawsuit: he was accused of conspiring with the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston to cover up some abuse in the district court of Harris County, Houston, Texas (in mid ’90). The Pope is considered a head of state and automatically has diplomatic immunity. (more here, here and here)

Ok, maybe 38 minutes is a lot, but instead of watching TV this evening, let’s surf here.

Here is the BBC page on the documentary.
