Zero Hedge: All 34 bishops in Chile have tendered their resignations in the wake of yet another pedophile priest scandal in which high level officials covered up the institutionalized sexual abuse of minors – even threatening officials tasked with investigating sex crimes and the destruction of evidence.

Calls had mounted for the resignations after details emerged of the contents of a 2,300-page Vatican report into the Chilean scandal leaked early Friday.

Francis had accused the bishops of destroying evidence of sex crimespressuring investigators to minimize abuse accusations and showing ‘grave negligence’ in protecting children from paedophile priests.

In one of the most damning documents from the Vatican on the issue, Francis said the entire Chilean church hierarchy was collectively responsible for ‘grave defects’ in handling cases and the resulting loss of credibility that the Catholic Church has suffered. more …

Opinion: Finally the headline from May 15, “Pope says he’s thought about when it’s time to ‘take leave’ ” that followed our May 1 headline, the “Australian cardinal to stand trial on historical sex abuse charges”, make sense.

Cardinal George Pell leaves at Melbourne Magistrates' Court on May 1, 2018 in Melbourne, Australia. Cardinal Pell was charged on summons by Victoria Police on 29 June 2017 over multiple allegations of sexual assault.

Reading between the two headlines one could make the case that the embattled pontiff who has conservative bishops in a tumult over his numerous progressive liberal positions had had enough.

But there was another proverbial shoe to drop, and 34 Chilean Bishops resigning en masse makes the situation very clear; the church pedophilia scandal is still out of control, and Francis’ handling of it has failed.

That this church is plagued by scandal after scandal should not be hard to understand even for beginning Bible prophecy students:

“I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Genesis 12:3

Francis has repeatedly cursed President Trump’s moves to bless Israel.

December 6, 2017: “Pope Francis Voices Deep Concern Over Trump Plan On Jerusalem”  

 “Pope Francis today made an appeal for world actors to respect of the status quo of Jerusalem …

… in accordance with the relevant U.N. resolutions, and to let “wisdom and prudence prevail” so as “to avoid adding new elements of tension” in the Middle East and “in a world already shaken and scarred by many cruel conflicts.”

Then on May 16, 2018 “The Pope slams Israel’s defense of its borders from armed Muslim rioters”

“I am very worried about the escalation of tensions in the Holy Land and the Middle East, and about the spiral of violence which moves us ever further away from the path of peace, dialogue and negotiation.”

Israel’s borders were ordained by God Himself (Genesis 15:18, 17:8)

“On that day the LORD made a covenant with Abram and said, “To your descendants I give this land, from the Wadi of Egypt to the great river, the Euphrates-

Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land n which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession; and I will be their God.”
