Cardinal Roger Mahony: I Forgive Those Who Are Angry at Me for Covering Up Child Rape

(PATHEOS)   Cardinal Roger Mahony, the man who appears to have shielded child-molesting priests for the sake of Catholicism, wrote about humiliation on his personal website.

But instead of talking about the things he’s done wrong, he flipped it around and threw it back on the victims of his purported crimes and those who rally behind them:

In the past several days, I have experienced many examples of being humiliated. In recent days, I have been confronted in various places by very unhappy people. I could understand the depth of their anger and outrage — at me, at the Church, at about injustices that swirl around us.

Thanks to God’s special grace, I simply stood there, asking God to bless and forgive them.

As if they’re the ones who need to be forgiven.

As if he’s the good guy for being so humble as to think of them.

As if he’s the one humiliated but not the victims of the scandal he helped cover up.

As if he had nothing to do with their frustrations and rage against the Catholic Church.

There’s a lot of talk lately about how out of touch the Catholic Church and its leaders are… but rarely are the examples so clear-cut.

  1. What an arrogant asshole! Nobody cares if he forgives the people who are angry with him for covering up the child abuse. And his forgiveness doesn’t change the fact that the church sexually molested hundreds of thousands of little children and tried to cover it up. Mohoney should be on his knees asking them for forgiveness!

    How kind of the exalted cardinal to forgive those against whom he has trespassed. Does God also grant him a "Get Out of Jail FREE" card???

    It is the 21st Century, there is no magic guy in the sky. Let us move forward and away from the divisive, unscientific superstitious nonsense of our forefathers and its bedfellow – part politics. Humanity should reject all notions that seek to separate one group of humanity from another with contrived and false constructs.
