Vatican not to conduct inquiry into Cardinal Keith O’Brien’s ‘inappropriate sexual conduct’

Post by Guest on Tue Apr 30, 2013 3:05 am

The Catholic Church is to take no further action over Cardinal Keith O’Brien’s admission of inappropriate “sexual conduct”, following accusations from four priests.

The 75-year-old, who contested the first set of allegations, resigned as leader of the Scottish Catholic Church in late February.

In March, he admitted that his “sexual conduct” had been “below the standards expected” of him. The Vatican then claimed it would conduct an inquiry once the new pope was in place. Pope Francis was appointed on 13 March.

Scotland on Sunday now reports that the Vatican has no active investigation into Cardinal O’Brien’s actions, and the Vatican is keeping only a “loose watching brief” over his case.

It is unlikely that O’Brien will be made to give up his rank as Cardinal, unless the Pope decides that another senior Scottish catholic should be granted the traditional red hat.

The report suggests that senior figures in the Catholic Church have decided that an inquiry is not necessary, as O’Brien has already admitted his wrongdoing, and apologised.

He has not been seen in public since 25 February, when he resigned as archbishop.

A source close to the Roman Curia said: “When an investigation takes place people expect some kind of public result of the investigation, but there is just no way there is going to be some kind of public examination and a published report on this matter. The Church doesn’t work that way.”

The paper reports that a second source explained that the “loose watching brief” was being kept over the case, to watch out for further allegations against O’Brien.

It is unlikely that the Vatican will forcibly remove O’Brien’s title as Cardinal, however if the Secretariat of State should deem it necessary to appoint a new Scottish cardinal, he may be asked to voluntarily resign it.

Another source said: “The secretariat of state and the papal nuncio will decide what is the best course of action, they will make this decision and then ask Pope Francis whether he agrees.”

Last month, the four priests who accused Keith O’Brien of inappropriate sexual conduct, which led to his resignation, denied that they were part of a “gay cabal” seeking “revenge” for his anti-gay stance.

In March it was also claimed Cardinal O’Brien groped a priest on the same day he became a cardinal in 2003. It was later alleged that he had a long-standing physical relationship with one of the men whose complaints about his conduct sparked his resignation.

This wasn't child sex abuse though, it was young priests being hit on by the equivalent of their boss, and it seems they gave in to his demands. More like sexual harrassment in the work place, he works for the Catholic Church. I doubt they would have got much more had they gone to the police. They were adults.. welcome to the world of adults..

This case wasn't child abuse but it was sexual abuse of young men and inappropriate sexual conduct and this rotten religious institution should not be allowed to sweep it under the carpet like they did with all of the child sex abuse cases.

Im not a fan of the Catholic Church, and don't support them in any way. Yes they were young MEN. Men being the operative word, he came on to them using a position of power, it happens every day all over the world in every workplace to men and women., Inappropriate to the Church, not to normal society, they are supposed to be celibate. If the young men hadn't thought it would further their careers to suck some Bishop dick they may not have bothered or may have reported him then and there. The equivelant of the casting couch, and starlets crying 20 years later when they didn't get the starring role. He will probably be given a few Hail Marys to say and make an act of repentance, it is the way of the beast that is the Church.

This did all happen quite a while back though in times where the young men's testimonies were not have been believed and it is only fairly recently that the child abuse survivors were believed.
I just find it very hypocritical that religion tends to think what two consenting adults do behind closed doors is worse than child abuse whilst it would appear that many of them have been having homosexual relations themselves. slap face

Pretty much, but abuse of power isn't just a Church thing. people are dazzled by the most ridiculous flimsy silly bits of faux power in all of its forms. Put the power in a silk robe, bling with a choir in the background, and a hot line to God.. yer laughin..

I would agree and the original news story was featured in the main stream press..But the latest update hasn't been featured even by the BBC!..They are just brushing it under the carpet and will hope that it goes away! thinks No
