VATICAN Pope: Emirates trip marks new page in Christian-Muslim dialogue

VATICAN Pope: Emirates trip marks new page in Christian-Muslim dialogue

Pope Francis further admitted the mistreatment of women was a "cultural problem" and allegations about nuns being abused were being individually investigated.

The pope made these remarks during a press conference on his plane as he was flying back to Rome from the United Arab Emirates. Experts say that dependency has dissuaded mother superiors from taking accusations from their sisters up the chain of command, since the bishop could retaliate against the congregation if he has a greater interest in protecting his priest. "I think it is still going on because something does not stop just because you have become aware of it".

Catholic nuns around the world have increasingly been reporting sexual abuse at the hands of clerics.

And Providence wanted it to be a Pope by the name of Francis, 800 years after the visit of St. Francis of Assisi to the sultan al-Malik al-Kamil.

In terms of the response of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis insisted that this had "already begun".

Last week a Vatican magazine reported on nuns aborting the children of priests And an investigation by the Associated Press previous year revealed cases of abuse of nuns in Europe, Asia, Africa and South America - cases in which the Vatican had not sufficiently punished offenders or supported victims.

Cavs, Rockets, Kings complete 3-team trade
Just over a week ago, Chriss requested either more playing time or a trade from the Suns and it appears he has his wish. Shumpert is a free agent after this season, so they procure a pick rather than risk him walk away for nothing.

The issue of the abuse of nuns was raised in a Vatican magazine article published last week which detailed reports of sexual abuse by clerics resulting in nuns having abortions or giving birth to children fathered by priests.

NPR: "Pope Francis Acknowledges, For First Time, Sexual Abuse Of Nuns By Priests" - "Pope Francis, for the first time, acknowledged the sexual abuse of nuns by priests and bishops, including a case in which some clergy used women as sex slaves".

"For the first time - he continued - a Pope has traveled to the Arabian peninsula". Reportedly, a representative to more than 500,000 Catholic nuns, the International Union of Superiors General, encouraged its members to report abuse. The pope added the mistreatment of nuns is part of a larger issue of women being treated as "second-class citizens".

Pope Francis said sexual abuse of nuns was an ongoing problem, but happened largely in "certain congregations, predominantly new ones". My thoughts - he said - goes to the families suffering from the pain, as well as to the Haitian people struck by this new tragedy. Over the past year, the Associated Press and other media outlets have reported cases of abused nuns in a number of countries around the world, such as India, Africa, Europe, and South America.

"I don't want to hear that the church has not got this problem, because it has".

"He was unable to control himself... he had a split personality".
