While some Catholics are hopeful that Benedict "Arnold" XVI’s acknowledgement of crimes committed against children by pedophile priests will bring about change, others are doubtful.

Doubtful wins.

Just as Benedict chose to close his eyes to U.S. torture policies and other crimes committed against humanity during his visit here, his blind-eye policy to pedophile priests and subsequence apology are anti-everything people of sanity and reason hold dear.

There will be no changes and the abuse and cover-ups will continue as long as the pope continues to give Bernard Law sanctuary in Rome and Roger Mahoney is running around free in Los Angeles along with every priest who committed child abuse or covered up for these criminals, including the pope, who is still protecting them.

There will be no change as long as Catholics continue to support these vile criminals with their financial contributions.

There will be no change as long as Catholics flock by the thousands to see and hear the pope, kiss his skirt and the rings on his malevolent fingers that protected guilty priests and did not protect the church's children -- leaving their innocent souls to perish in the parishes.

The will be no change as long as glassy-eyed mothers with babes in arms allow those same stained, be-ringed fingers touch the heads of their children.

The sight of one such mother doing just that was revolting beyond description. After the unholy blessing she went before the television cameras, teary-eyed and quivering with exaltation, because that evil man touched her child’s head and bestowed his "blessings" on him.

One must wonder if she ever considered that those same hands gave hundreds of priest a papal pass; a get out of jail free card for unspeakable crimes against children. That this same man will do it again, and that innocent babe in her arms may be the victim of yet another pedophile priest. Obviously she didn't or she never would have gone within a million miles of the man.

The will be no change as long as Los Angeles residents -- from the rich and powerful to the most humble -- continue to flock to Mahoney’s grossly ugly Taj Mahal built to the specifications of his ego in downtown L.A.; built with the money earned off the sweat of their backs for his glorification.

There will be no change as long as those same people, especially the rich and powerful like the mayor, line up at every opportunity to be photographed with Mahoney, whose oh, too clever lawyers plied every trick in their legal books to avoid turning over church records to the district attorney, leaving Mahoney and all the pedophile priests free to avoid showing up for their reservations at the gray bar hotel.

All of that left many Angelinos suspicious of the D.A.’s legal abilities and wondering if he did everything he could do, and if he didn’t, why didn’t he?

No, there will be no change.

Pope Benedict "Arnold" XVI flew home to the Vatican surely smiling a tight-lipped sneering grin of a smile all the way, knowing he once again pulled the wool over the sheep’s eyes.

Before the popejet's wheels touch the ground all the fake promises, all the insincere apologies were more than likely to have been scuttled into the Atlantic to sleep with the fishes -- never to be heard from again.

There's nothing anybody can about any of this except be revolted by watching this man get away with murdering souls and destroying lives.
