    The United Nations heavily criticized the Vatican on Wednesday for what it said was a systematic adoption of policies allowing priests to rape and sexually abuse tens of thousands of children.

    The devastating report published by the U.N. Committee on the Rights of a Child said the Vatican must "immediately remove" all known or suspected child abusers within the clergy.

    It said the Holy See had "systematically placed preservation of the reputation of the church and the alleged offender over the protection of child victims."

    The report comes after an unprecedented hearing in Geneva on Jan. 16, in which Vatican representatives were questioned by the U.N. committee.

    Its recommendations are non-binding and the U.N. has given the Vatican until 2017 to report back. It criticized the institution for submitting its last report 14 years late.

    "Well-known child sexual abusers have been transferred from parish to parish or to other countries in an attempt to cover-up such crimes," the report said.

    It later added: "Due to a code of silence imposed on all members of the clergy under penalty of excommunication, cases of child sexual abuse have hardly ever been reported to the law enforcement authorities in the countries where such crimes occurred.

    "In many cases, Church authorities, including at the highest levels of the Holy See have shown reluctance and in some instances, refused to cooperate with judicial authorities and national commissions of inquiry."

    I wouldn't go that far.. very harsh. Catholics as a whole have good intentions, as well as the faith in general.

    How this was handled however, is whats so horrible.

    the reglion is one of the wealthiest corps & land owners in the world and a portion of that wealth has gone to start and finance wars & protect pedophiles. people are starving around the world as they sit on billions and billions of dollars all while not paying one stinking penny in taxes.

    so they are no different really then any other greedy companies out there.

    this is coming from a person raised catholic.
