An international association of people that were sexually abused by priests is suing Pope Maledict and other Vatican Taliban officials through the International Criminal Court (ICC) for crimes against humanity.

The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) said it had filed a complaint calling on the court to "take action and prosecute the Pope" for "direct and superior responsibility for the crimes against humanity of rape and other sexual violence committed around the world."

In a statement, SNAP said members from Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and the US had travelled to The Hague to urge prosecutors to investigate the pope.

They also asked for three high-ranking Vatican officials -- Cardinal Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone, his predecessor Angelo Sodano and the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith, US William Levada -- to be investigated.

The Vatican is not speaking to the media about this. Quelle surprise.

Via twitter, barbares arrogants.

As a head of state,I doubt that the Pope can be touched. The situation might get much more interesting with his subordinates, though. Best of luck to those bringing this action.
