More than a blind eye, he was caught sending out letters to the bishops worldwide to coverup evidence, conduct secret church trials, and even move evidence to vatican embassies, because according to the letter, 'they have diplomatic immunity for that'.
Ratzinger was not only behind the recent pedophile coverup, he probably got to be pope in the first place because he was the person behind it.
This is the evil that comes from putting your faith in man not God, and there is no limit to the authoritarian evil a person who worships that way will go along with.
Hence, endless inquisitions and murders, endless pedophile rapes (this has been going on for centuries in the vatican), etc etc.
Worship God alone.
And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
