Another Cover Up...

http://link.brightcove.com/services/...d=599572119001




Secret recordings reveal a senior figure in the Catholic church pleaded with a sex abuse victim to delay going public about his ordeal until the 73-year-old bishop who had abused him resigned, writes Jonathan Rugman.

The self-confessed abuser was 73-year-old Bishop Roger Vangheluwe of Bruges (pictured right), who was forced to resign in disgrace earlier this year after his nephew accused him of abuse from the age of five to 18.

But the apparent cover up goes even higher up the Catholic Church than that: to the Bishop’s former boss, Cardinal Godfried Danneels, the ex-head of the Church in Belgium. He was secretly taped in April – before the Bishop resigned – urging the victim not to go public.

The tape was made by the abuse victim, now a 42-year-old man, who has said he made the recording to counter rumours apparently put about by the church that he had received hush money from his uncle to gain his silence.

The recording was made on 8 April and lasts for more than 18 minutes. In order to counter the charge that it has been selectively edited, the transcript was published in full in two Belgian Flemish newspapers over the weekend.

“The Bishop will resign next year, so actually it would be better for you to wait,” the Cardinal tells the victim, when they are discussing whether to go public on the abuse.

The victim replies: “No, I can’t agree that he takes his leave in glory, I can’t do that.”

The Cardinal says: “I dont think you’d do yourself or him a favour by shouting this from the rooftops,” before imploring the man not to drag the Bishop’s “name through the mud”.

“He has dragged my whole life through the mud, from five until 18 years old,” counters the victim. “Why do you feel so sorry for him and not for me? You’re always trying to defend him. I thought I was going to get some support, but I have to sit here and defend myself against things I can’t do anything about.”

The Cardinal’s spokesman says he has been quoted selectively but a spokesman for his successor has said the transcript speaks for itself. Child abuse scandals have swept the Catholic church worldwide, but what makes this one different is that we have a verbatim transcript of a Cardinal’s response.

Speaking not 10 years ago, but in April this year, and claiming in the tape that he has no authority over the offending Bishop, because authority, he says, rests with the Pope himself. This was just after Pope Benedict had apologised to victims of abuse in Ireland and when damning evidence of older cover-ups from Germany and the United States was coming to light through the press.

A good healthy dose of prayer will sort everything out.

Religion is a dying beast. It's taken centuries to die, but it is on its way out. Next up: let's get the fucking bankers!
