Italian Bishop: “Plot Against Benedict”

Bogus accusations of "covering up sexual abuses" are a “plot” against Benedict XVI which comes from inside the Church, retired Reggio Emilia Bishop Massimo Camisasca, 75, told Corriere.it (January 23).

He insists that Ratzinger stood out his struggle against homosexual abusive priests, “No one has done as much as him.”

“Why then this doggedness against Ratzinger, on alleged facts happened almost 40 years ago?” - he asks and replies, “The only rationale is the intolerance of [what he calls] the liberal sectors in Church and society.”

According to Camisasca, the persons behind this are those who never accepted Benedict XVI's pontificate and are reflected in the drifts of the German Synod. Camisasca categorically insists that there is "no plot of Francis against Benedict," and that Francis - no joke - "has a deep esteem and affection for his predecessor."

So called “independent” abuse commissions chosen by the French and the German bishops are “not really independent,” Camisaca stresses, but follow an “anti-Catholic prejudice.” He adds that “one must never measure the attitudes of decades ago with those that would be required today.”

Francis - no joke - "has a deep esteem and affection for his predecessor." It's reciprocated, too.
