Rather To Be Remembered as an "Ex-Pope" Than an Ex-Con
Why would Ratzinger resign? Besides reports of his being in seriously bad health and blind in his left eye, Ratzinger may be scared to death that he will be hauled before the World Criminal Court to face charges for his subornation of crimes against humanity by his corrupt clergy around the world. Moreover, in the United States and elsewhere, more and more cases are making their way up the judicial ladder to charge Ratzinger personally as the employer of these criminals. Under U.S. law, even foreign heads of state can lose diplomatic immunity when they are charged as employers.
In 2010, for example, Ratzinger was personally named as a defendant in a lawsuit charging that he failed to take action as Pro-Prefect for the Congregation for the destruction of the Faith in 1995 when he was officially informed about the priest who had raped some 200 deaf boys at a Vatican II school. There have been repeated calls for Benedict's arrest over sexual crimes in his sect. When Ratzinger took a trip to Britain in 2010, some British politicians called for Ratzinger to be arrested. In 2011, victims of assault, rape, and sodomy by Ratzinger's clergy filed suit with the International Criminal Court to investigate Ratzinger and three of his closest confidants for crimes against humanity. He has been charged with being an accessory after the fact in moving priest rapists of children from parish to parish instead of defrocking them and handing them over to authorities.
