As holy week starts, The  leader of Manila’s Catholic Church called on the faithful to avoid retaliation “for it will only breed evilness.” Cardinal Tagle said taking revenge becomes a vicious cycle from which nobody can move on and will further cause contempt and resentment. GMA News reports
"You care. You care for the victims… You care also for the child abuser who is definitely lost and you do not want the person to continue being lost… This is a very Asian approach. And it is that approach [that] leads to healing, but healing based on justice, based on truth,” he added.

“I think for us, legal action, exposing persons, both victims and abusers, to the public, either through media or legal action, adds to the pain.”

“How can we defeat it? By being innocent like Jesus… which means that you don’t plan anything that will hurt others,” he said

“Your goodness will defeat evil,” said Tagle. “Let’s journey with Him (Christ) in our everyday life by being innocent, charitable, and doers righteous.”

Don't stream it then. Don't involve the media as much as possible (even though that couldn't be stopped) But withdrawing legal action is not fair. These priests committed crimes and they should face the consequences for that. Accountability above all.

03/25/2013 5:16pm

i agree with you. what tagle said is fuck logic. we must remember that these priests are criminals with criminal minds. and tagle must also be reminded that the church is not a haven for criminals and criminal coddler like him

Expect more kids to be abused by these sickos; this message only emboldens the abuser for pedophilia is as progressive as the interest from a Ponzi scheme.

No need to worry when one will abuse and rape Tagle's relative. Because to retaliate is evil according to this cardinal, so rapist and pedophile priests will have a field day onwards.

03/24/2013 11:25am

Whaaat??? Goodness! gracious! great balls of Tagle! ...Perhaps the Holy Spirit did not let him succeed as Pope because of his state of mind that could make the Catholic Church in the state of extinction.

As Macoy once said; I am very, very disappointed! --dinggol.d~~~

Wow! Really? Glad he didn't become a Pope.
Or else, he'll be called a moron from the Philippines.

Genius! Let's all just allow child molesters to roam the streets freely. LOL, I myself can now sexually abuse the cute kid living in our neighborhood. (cue sarcasm)

Don't you just love Catholicism?

Why? Because f*ck logic, that's why.

*slow clap*

The culture of silence is exactly what perpetrates abuse.Justice.. not 'just tiis' is what is needed to break the bond and heal the shame that binds both perpetrators and victims.

I'd like to see what that asshole has to say if someone steals from his church, or speaks ill of the Church in the Phillipines......I'd bet LOTS of money that he wouldn't be so conciliatory.

So, I think the cardinal is inviting the public to come to his house and molest/rape him? WHO'S IN? :)

This is a skewed sense of logic. By advocating "avoiding retaliation" against abusers, do you mean to say that molesters should not be prosecuted by the full extent of the law? Then by the same logic, we should just condone ALL(caps intended) abusers whether secular or in the clergy. Even Gandhi's passive resistance places focus on the abuses and acknowledges that it is unjust and immoral. You Cardinal Tagle on the other hand are advocating in essence that these abuses be merely swept under the rug, Indeed very Asian in the most negative way.

Pambihirang tao heto oh!!! If this is the case na "patawarin at pagbigyan ang mga child molesters, then let's just legalize rape!!! Wala naman palang kelangang prosecution para rito e!!!

Sa dami ng atraso ng mga hayop na ito, wala ka nang makitang pare na lalakad lakad sa gabi. Pag may natiyempuhan ako kahit matanda na ... bibigyan ko siya ng "lobotomy" para maranasan nila ang mahubaran ng dignidad.
