  1. Don’t warn about priests who rape boys though…In fact, do the opposite: cover it up!

  2. Shouldn’t he be keeping himself to himself. Ratzinger didn’t want to be the pope anymore so should accept the full consequences of his actions and stfu

  3. *”Pope Benedict, who retired in 2013, said he could not remain silent on the issue.”*

    The guy has at least prioritized which issues are critical enough to speak out on. Honestly, there can’t *possibly* be any consideration more urgent and of vital importance to the Catholic Church than whether or not its priests should be permitted to stick their dicks into consenting vaginas.

    Go fuck yourself, Ratzinger.

  4. Ok man. I respect your opinion. He got caught up (I will have to read more on his circumstances and what he did during the war). Is that really the best person they can come up with? Can’t find someone without baggage like that?He’s a piece of shit for enabling pedophiles and enslaving women by forcing them to have children. Catholicism is a at its best a backwards, evil religion. They really all are. Thank you for improving my knowledge about this person.

  5. Isn’t celibacy the reason why so many priests abuse altar boys?

  6. So now we have two popes.

  7. Wasn’t he a fucking Nazi prison guard?

  8. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-51086626) reduced by 84%. (I’m a bot)
    > Retired Pope Benedict XVI has issued a defence of priestly celibacy in the Catholic Church as his successor considers easing a ban on married men serving as priests.

    > In the book, Pope Benedict says celibacy, a centuries-old tradition within the Church, has "Great significance" because it allows priests to focus on their duties.

    > A theological conservative with traditional views on Catholic values, Pope Benedict pledged to remain "Hidden from the world" when he retired, citing poor health.
