The 1960s is the culprit behind the neverending barrage of clerical sex abuse incidents plaguing the Catholic Church, writes retired Pope Benedict XVI. Apparently, the 1960s is a Manson-like monster that brainwashed innocent Catholic clergy to commit unspeakable acts under its command. The 1960s must be captured and brought to justice. The 1960s should be punished for victimizing the clergy under its spell, perhaps by subjecting it to strappado, interrogatorio mejorado del agua, or one of the many other benevolent forms of treatment invented by the Catholic Church to encourage sinners to see the light.
Retired Pope Benedict XVI has published a letter which blames clerical sex abuse on the "all-out sexual freedom" of the 1960s.
He said that cultural and historical change had led to a "dissolution" of morality in Catholicism.
The sexual revolution in the 1960s had led to homosexuality and paedophilia in Catholic establishments, he claimed.
Some allegations of child sex abuse by priests that have emerged date back to decades before the 1960s.
The only solution to the problem, the former Pope said, was "obedience and love for our Lord Jesus Christ".
