The International Law Compliance Forum (ILCF) has urged countries with instances of child-and sex abuse allegations to immediately begin proceedings against offenders and their protectors.

The ILCF has also urged countries to vary their 'statue of limitations' provisions through their legislative processes as to ensure that offenders as well as those religious officials who were aware of offences but failed to report them to authorities.

The ILCF also stated that those who assisted with the concealment of sex crimes by way of making representations to victims as to ensure that proceedings against offenders should have 'conspiracy' charged laid against them. According to the ILCF, the concealing of a serious criminal offence as to hinder proceedings warrants conspiracy charges in most countries through their legislative as well as criminal justice processes.

It is known that while a number, not all, Vatican officials may have diplomatic immunity, those within the various countries where offences have taken place do not have such privileges meaning that they are liable to prosecution in relation to the abuses.

It is now also known that some catholic congregations in Europe have commenced discussion as to voice 'no confidence' in their local catholic hierarchy as well as highlighting that they no longer have confidence in the processes of the Vatican, its officials and the pope.

In all, offenders and those accused of conspiracy without diplomatic immunity, may have their journeys cut short upon them being presented with a warrant. And that measure may include trips in and out of the Vatican.

Like it or not.

And that's the way it is.

THE POPE. HE SHOULD GO AND GO NOW.

Ah yes, another week of religious upheavals within the catholic religion and how wonderful it is to see what can only be described as an unaccountable, greedy lot of pedophiles and their protectors go down in a screaming heap having to defend the indefensible and not making a very good job of it.

ANOTHER DAY, ANOTHER RELIGIOUS SCANDAL FOR THE VATICAN

These people within the Vatican walls must think it's Christmas or something and they must certainly be counting their blessings due to the fact that they seem to have gotten away with more revelations of child-abuse and other crimes without having to lift a finger. Bloody disgusting it is.

SACK THE POPE - AND TURN THE VATICAN INTO A FINE ARTS MUSEUM

Well might you say, "You can't be serious making that statement" and I would then reply that I am very serious in terms of what I am saying and that I have a substantial number of very good reasons for doing so...
