Comment: In addition to a lawsuit naming Cardinal Ratzinger an accomplice in Crimes Against Humanity that has been delivered to the Hague.....Amnesty International names the Vatican as complicit in promoting human rights violations...... I thank both groups for helping us gain perspective, as those close to Catholicism come to an understanding of how these leaders lead. For me, they in no way represent the Catholic Identity I adhere to....their behavior and leadership is criminal, as is those who stand by and allow themselves to think the hierarchy is actually leading he church.....so I ask again...why do these hierarchs continue to be the face of Roman Catholicism?
