Ex-Pope Benedict: '68 to blame for the abuse crisis

For the Emeritus Pope, the 1968 years of Benedict a cause for the sexual abuse of children in the Catholic Church. Belonged to "the physiognomy of the 1968 Revolution, that now pedophilia as allowed and as appropriate" was diagnosed.

the reason for the crisis in the Catholic Church, too, is an "impiety," wrote Benedict in an essay, the other hand, the Catholic news network, the CNA published on Thursday.

Regardless of time would have been equal to "a collapse of the Catholic moral theology occurred, which made the Church vulnerable to the processes in the society". . "Why pedophilia could reach such an extent? In the last of the reason for this is the absence of God", writes the German Ex-Pope, the next week is 92 years old.

After consulting with his successor, Francis, he did the Text for the Bavarian "clergy sheet" wrote. It States: In the years from 1960 to 1980, the current mass are rods "in questions of sexuality completely broken apart," and a "norm-lessness arose, the intercept, meanwhile, strove".

"shameful Write"

the Catholic theologians expressed criticism. It was "amazing", "to make a permissive culture and a progressive theology for an internal and structural Problem," said Julie Hanlon Rubio, a Professor at the private California University of Santa Clara, on Twitter. She described Benedict's analysis as "deeply flawed" and "deeply troubling".

Brian Flanagan, lecturer at Marymount University in the U.S. state of Virginia, tweeted: "The Writing is shameful." The assumption that the abuse of children by clergy is a result of the 1960s, and of the supposed collapse of moral theology, was "embarrassing, wrong explanation for the systematic abuse of children and its cover-up."

Benedict was from 2005 until his spectacular resignation, 2013 Pope. In his term of office came to light, that the world's mass of the children were in need of spiritual abuse. In view of the serious crisis, Pope Francis had invited in February to an Anti-abuse summit in the Vatican. Pope Francis has repeatedly pointed out that the reason for the abuse of the power structures of the Church. (Editor: Tamedia/sda)
