Chilean Catholics Stunned As Pope Francis Openly Accuses Child Sex Abuse Victims Of Slander

Shock! The Pope Is Now Openly Attacking Child Sexual Abuse Victims For “Slander”:

Pope Francis is now attacking the credibility of child sex abuse victims in a shocking move made at the end of a trip to Chile in which he had hoped to “heal” the wounds of said abuse.

That’s right, Pope Francis ended his trip by publicly defending a bishop who victims have accused of covering up widespread pedophilia in the country.

According to a report by the Associated Press, Francis made the shocking comments in a discussion about Rev. Fernando Karadima who has been found guilty of sexually abusing a slew of minors as a member of the Catholic Church.

Pope Francis accused victims of Chile’s most notorious pedophile of slander Thursday, an astonishing end to a visit meant to help heal the wounds of a sex abuse scandal that has cost the Catholic Church its credibility in the country.

Francis said that until he sees proof that Bishop Juan Barros was complicit in covering up the sex crimes of the Rev. Fernando Karadima, such accusations against Barros are “all calumny.

The pope’s remarks drew shock from Chileans and immediate rebuke from victims and their advocates. They noted the accusers were deemed credible enough by the Vatican that it sentenced Karadima to a lifetime of “penance and prayer” for his crimes in 2011.

Pope says in ‘pain and shame’ over church sex scandal in Chile

Pope says in ‘pain and shame’ over church sex scandal in Chile:

Pope Francis has finally said he deeply regrets Chilean priests’ involvement in a series of sex crimes against children.

Upon the start of his visit to Santiago, the capital of Chile, on Tuesday, the pontiff said he felt he was “bound to express my pain and shame,” some seven years after reports emerged that some Chilean pastors had committed sexual abuse against children in their care.

H/t reader eric:

“Does anyone have any idea if there are any countries left in the world where the Roman Catholic Church HASN’T perpetrated a child sex scandal?”

Too Much Solar Electricity Makes Chile Give It Away For Free

Too much solar electricity makes Chile give it away for free

Overpowered: Too much solar electricity makes Chile give it away for free:

Chile’s main solar power plants are supplying so much electricity that they have to give it away for free or face prices going down. The glut has been driven by the country’s booming copper industry.

Chile’s growing energy demand has prompted the development of 29 solar farms to supply the central grid. Booming mining production and economic growth have been the main drivers. The country is expected to install almost 1.4 gigawatts of solar power this year, up from 371 megawatts in 2015, according to Bloomberg , which is enough to supply hundreds of thousands of homes.

The Time When A Single Computer Ran An Entire Country (Video)

The Time When A Single Computer Ran An Entire Country:

A British computer scientist and cybernetics pioneer named A. Stafford Beer was invited in 1971 by the socialist/Marxist government of Chile, under the democratically elected Salvador Allende, to “run the country.”

A high-ranking cabinet official had read Beer’s work on cybernetics, and convinced the Allende government – which would be swiftly removed by a CIA-backed coup only two years later in 1973 – to create an experiment in a high-tech socialist state.

Beer’s vision for controlling society included cybernetic managers who would sit in futuristic chairs with buttons, panels and displays straight out of Star Trek.

It is being referred to as Cthulhu-geddon.

Squid have washed up on Santa Maria Island off Chile this week in what some have described as biblical proportions. Thousands of dead and dying squid are piled up on the shore. While some squid normally do wash up this time of year, it’s never been in this large of a quantity.

Seismic Activity in Chile Is Breaking Records

Seismic Activity in Chile Is Breaking Records:

There are Class 4 & 5 quakes virtually every ten minutes in Northern Chile. This is another world class major rupture in the Earth’s crust, this is this year’s Great Event. I think that Chile is very lucky that the rupture is “slowly” cracking the Earth with frequent comparatively modest activity rather than more dramatically breaking the crust in a Class 9 mega-event.

Land of the Free – Crying 8-Year-Old with Disabilities Shackled in Handcuffs at Kentucky School (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Aug 5, 2015):

In the lawsuit, joined by the Children’s Law Center, the ACLU accuses the sheriff’s department and Sumner of violating both federal and state laws that prohibit the forceful restraint of children unless the pupil is presenting an imminent and real threat to their own or someone else’s safety. The suit alleges that by being shackled for so long the child suffered pain and trauma that exacerbated his diagnosed conditions of ADHD and post-traumatic stress disorder.In the video, shot last November by a staff member of the public school in which the third grader was studying, Sumner can be seen applying the handcuffs around SR’s biceps as the boy’s wrists are too small to restrain. “You can do what we have asked you to do, or you can suffer the consequences,” the police officer tells the child.

Surreal! Sunset turns massive Calbuco eruption into amazing scene (IMAGES) (RT, April 23, 2015):

The record-breaking volcanic eruption in southern Chile is dramatically altering skies, as spectacular views emerge of white plumes creeping miles up into the sky after coloring the night orange. A second blast took place hours ago.

Nature’s colossal power was aptly demonstrated by Calcubo, which erupted a second time just a few hours ago, with agencies reporting a stronger eruption than the first.

An electrical storm mixed with the raging spurts of lava overnight to create what looked like the jaws of hell opening to swallow the surrounding landscape.
