Belgian Police Raid Church Offices


It was inevitable in our hierarchy where secrecy is the rule.    

 

Former Archbishop of Mechelen-Brussels, Cardinal Godfried Danneels

As reported in the New York Times, Belgian authorities on Thursday, 24 June, heightened pressure on the Roman Catholic Church in a sexual abuse scandal, raiding the Belgian church headquarters, the home of a cardinal and the offices of a commission established by the church to handle abuse complaints.

Police officers arrived at the church headquarters, the palace of the archbishop of Mechelen-Brussels, on Thursday morning while the monthly bishops meeting was in progress. The police questioned all of those present, from bishops to staff members like cooks and drivers.

Two truckloads of documents were removed including Cardinal Danneels’ private computer.

Danneels is being accused of covering up 50 pedophile cases.

And Danneels is one of the very best archbishops we have……

The practice of secrecy in the church has to end!
