A South African cardinal on Monday apologized for offending victims of child abuse when he described pedophilia as an illness and not a crime in a media interview.Victims' rights groups and others said the comments by Cardinal Wilfrid Fox Napier, the Catholic Archbishop of Durban, comments were insensitive, especially given perceptions the Catholic Church has not done enough to root out abuse.
"I apologize sincerely and unreservedly to all who were offended by the botched interview, and especially to those who have been abused and need every help and support that the Church can give," Napier said in a statement.
Napier, one of the 115 cardinals who took part in the Vatican conclave that elected Pope Francis, had told BBC Radio 5 that pedophilia was a "disorder" that needed to be treated.
"From my experience, pedophilia is actually an illness. It's not a criminal condition, it's an illness," he had said.
He also told the BBC he knew of at least two priests who became pedophiles after they were abused as children and therefore required treatment, not punishment.
"That's when the wheels came off. I now stand accused of saying that pedophilia is a mental condition or disorder and not a crime," Napier said in his statement.
"Child sexual abuse is a heinous crime among other things because of the damage it does to the child. In that concern I include the abused who has become an abuser."
One prominent South African presenter, Justice Malala, named Napier "loser of the week" on his television show and said the Cardinal's remarks were an embarrassment to Catholics.
Francis, the first non-European pope in nearly 1,300 years, has signaled a sharp change of style from his predecessor, Benedict, for the 1.2-billion-member Church, which is beset by scandals, intrigue and strife.
He said on Saturday the church should be poor and remember that its mission is to serve the poor.* The motives for engaging in sexual activity with children are rather divergent among pedophiles, but one theme recurs: the pedophile tends to justify his/her conduct.
Pedophiles often indicate to authorities that the child solicited sexual contact or activity, and also claim that the child derives as much sexual pleasure from the activity as the perpetrator. Pedophiles also excuse their behavior as non-harmful, non-violent, non-forced, even "educational" for the child.

There has been marked pervasiveness and proliferation of child pornographic materials on the Internet and international websites. In a 1998 Interpol raid (the latest data available), a total of 500,000 child pornographic images were found on computers in the United States alone. According to one study, as much as 45 percent of child pornography on the Internet comes from Japan, where child pornography is not an offense.
A ring that connects all the Knights of Malta, secret orders and global secret societies, bloodlines and incriminates millions of Satan Worshippers around the globe.
The African National Council’s christ Mandela, former president Mbeki and the iconic Desmond Tutu tell the whole HIDDEN story. Here, the Roman Catholic Vatican’s Sovereign Military Order of Malta, a.k.a. the Masonic Order of St. John of Jerusalem proudly parade them in their masonic regalia. As other Roman Catholic orders such as the Knights Templar, this is a fightingmasonic fraternity for politicians and clergy — of which Julius Malema is allegedly also a member.
ABOVE, MANDELA IN RED: “As a notable METHODIST,” the Roman Catholic THE TABLET wrote, “[WITH THE CONSENT OF THE OLD GOVERNMENT,] Mandela was regularly visited by a [Roman Catholic] JESUIT priest while he was held captive on Robben Island.”
The Vatican’s Jesuit Order constantly supports, plans and executes communist mayhem and false Christian doctrine worldwide. Consequently, these visits had nothing to do with Mandela’s spiritual life but with his communist excursions inside and outside South African borders. Alan Lamont explained, “The Jesuit Order stands under a black banner and red cross above a [MASONIC] skull and crossbones, with the word INRI, and below them the words ISTUM, NECAR, REGES, IMPIOUS. It means: IT IS JUST TO EXTERMINATE OR ANNIHILATE IMPIOUS OR HERETICAL KINGS, GOVERNMENTS, OR RULERS.”
“The Jesuit Vatican New World Order,” wrote Dave Hunt, “[are thousands of the pope’s] secret agents worldwide… [One of these,] The Grand Council and Sovereign Military Order of Malta… control the Banking, Industry and Military Complexes of the world. They oversee Chase Manhattan Bank with branches in Moscow and New York. They rule the International Community, KGB in the East and the CIA in the West…” Alan Lamont explained, “South Africa has it’s very own secret services… Julius Malema is one such agent. Another was Pik Botha, [a ‘triple [KGB] agent,’ accomplishing the ‘final communist shift’ in all non-communist countries worldwide and in South Africa,] working with the Israeli Mossad, British Secret Services and Central Intelligence Agency… AT THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF GOVERNMENT AND INTELLIGENCE, THERE ARE NO SIDES. THE INTERNATIONAL INTELLIGENCE SOCIETY [OR ONE WORLD ORDER] IS CONTROLLED BY [CATHOLIC] JESUITS.”

Looking back, it is plain to see that the Broederbond-regime, which evolved from the British monster of ‘segregation’ into the apartheid dragon, was one of the best-camouflaged communist-freemasonry machines of the modern world. Again I must emphasize that the Brotherhood’s apartheid regime DID NOT originate with Afrikaners, as most people believe. By separating people of different races first, the Global British Masonic Brotherhood ensured that Afrikaners, English, Africans all hated one another. The Brotherhood always plays communism against capitalism and vise versa. Closet Russiancommunists and Cabalist Jews always lead the communist assault against a targeted country.
Yet, behind the scenes, masonic orders, all grounded in communism, are not enemies, but friends!
The long-term focus in a South African context has not been on claims of child abuse by Satanic cults and the psychiatric community has not played a significant role, as was the case in other countries. The local phenomenon is characterised by Christian evangelismand the scapegoating of Satanism for crime and societal problems .In his 1997 PhD thesis, psychologist Gavin Ivey attributes the local phenomenon to an increase in Christian fundamentalism coupled with a perceived Satanic threat in the social context of the contemporary occult revival:
Ivey states "All monotheistic religions are forced to account for the presence of evil in a world where everything is created by God, who in theory should be able to vanquish all forms of evil but seems in capable to do so." He compares the importance of Satan in the only two contemporary major religions with a personified principle of evil in opposition to a single omnipotent deity who is unambiguously good, namely Satan in Christianity, whose identity evolved in the New Testament, and Satan in Islam. He notes the greater significance of Satan in Christianity, as Satan emerged as a less threatening figure in Islam and "Because it embraces a fundamental dualism, the Christian spiritual world is seen as a battleground between God and the personification of evil, the Devil." However, members of the relatively small Muslim community in South Africa have also been outspoken about the alleged dangers of Satanism.
In her 2012 MA thesis, Danielle Dunbar argues that while influenced by the international Satanism scare, past periods of Satanic panic in South Africa reflected localised periods of political upheaval and social anxiety. While in the past Dunbar and other academicshave associated the South African phenomenon with the white population group in particular, some more specifically with Calvinist Afrikaners, the racial divide is disappearing. According to American sociologist Jeffrey Victor,
With reference to this quote, academic Nicky Falkof states in a South African context "alongside this, the figure of the Satanist provides an object for the displacement of anxiety and the concurrent cohesion of nationalistic sentiment."
Apart from religious groups, the media and the government have aggravated the local phenomenon. In 2007 Afrikaans-language newspaper Rapport dismissed journalist Deon Maas, who had advocated religious tolerance in his new column, to protect its commercial interests. According to Nicky Falkof, the English and Afrikaans media have not differed materially in their treatment of the subject: "The paranoia, sensationalism or occasional scepticism with which stories were reported generally had more to do with the class or locality of the audience than with their language group." The mainstream media in general persists in sensationalistic reporting regarding Satanism and the occult, especially regarding criminal cases with any suggestion of Satanic involvement.
The phenomenon is also evident in South Africa's neighbouring countries. In March 2013, Zimbabwe's national police spokesperson Charity Charamba said media reports about Satanic incidents were unfounded and were causing unnecessary panic
Paedophilia rings connect to SA
The cracking of a massive international child-pornography ring, with links to South Africa, has unmasked tens of thousands of paedophiles across the world.
Weak laws make SA a paedophile haven'
It's no wonder sex tourists - and especially paedophiles - are flocking to South Africa.
Self-confessed Swiss paedophile Peter Zimmermann is a free man because officials claimed they could not find his teenage boy victim - but The Star managed to find the boy, and four new child victims, in less than a day.
Zimmermann, 46, paid a fine of R10 000 and left the country after the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) made a "plea bargain" deal with him. The NPA said the complainant - the boy The Star found so easily - could not be traced by the police.
When The Star located Zimmermann's five victims from Alexandra township in Johannesburg - four are under the age of 16 and one is 19 - they told a harrowing tale of sexual abuse at the hands of a man they call "Master Peter".
