Pope Invokes "Loshon Hara Halacha" Against Victims of Sexual Abuse

So now the Pope is also into learning Hilchos Loshon Hara!
Maybe he can give some mussar talks to the oilim.
He blames the victims of sexual abuse of spreading Loshon Hara.

Pope Francis has accused victims of Chile's most notorious paedophile of slander.
He made the astonishing claim at the end of a visit meant to help heal the wounds of a sex abuse scandal that has cost the Catholic Church its credibility in the country.
On Thursday the Pope said that until he sees proof that Bishop Juan Barros was complicit in covering up sex crimes of the Reverend Fernando Karadima, accusations against Barros are 'all calumny.'

His remarks provoked outrage and shock among victims and their representatives, who noted that Karadima was sentenced by the Vatican to a lifetime of 'penance and prayer' for his crimes in 2011. 

A Chilean judge also found the victims to be credible, saying that while she had to drop criminal charges against Karadima because too much time had passed, proof of his crimes wasn't lacking.
'As if I could have taken a selfie or a photo while Karadima abused me and others and Juan Barros stood by watching it all,' tweeted Barros' most vocal accuser, Juan Carlos Cruz. 
'These people are truly crazy, and the pontiff talks about atonement to the victims.
'Nothing has changed, and his plea for forgiveness is empty.'

Karadima's victims reported to church authorities as early as 2002 that he would kiss and fondle them in the swank Santiago parish he ran.
They claimed Barros had witnessed the abuse but did nothing about it.
But officials refused to believe them and Barros denied the allegations.
It was only when the victims went public with their accusations in 2010 that the Vatican launched an investigation that led to Karadima being removed from ministry.
The emeritus archbishop of Santiago then apologised for refusing to believe the victims from the beginning.

Sensitivity training at the Vatican carried out by Chabad!!


This Pope is still a hundred better than those two Satmar gangster Rebbes (not necessary to write LEHAVDIL), i am sure you all remember the name
"Nechemyah Weberman" yemach shemo THAT Satmar unlicensed so called therapist (he is was sentenced for 130 years for torture and rape of a 14year old girl)'
Well if you have a problem child you send her to an unlicensed therapist like weberman and he will torture and rape her,
When he was arrested,these two gangster brothers organized a giant fund raising party calling it PIDYON SHVUYIM and raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for this animals defense,BARUCH HASHEM it was waste of money and this swine will rot in jail for the next 130 years.
Aron Teitel-bum this vicious evil hater,had the audacity to call this poor 14 year old victim a ZONAH,therefore this Pope when compared to Aron and Zalmen comes up looking pretty good, personally would much rather kiss the hands of this Pope than the bloody Jew hating and Israel hating hands of these two gangsters
