Thou Shalt Not Abuse: The Commandment Denied by the Church of Pope Francis

The documentary “Thou Shalt Not Abuse …” addresses the abuse scandals of Catholic priests as well as the system used to conceal the abuse created and implemented by the Vatican throughout the 20th century. The documentary also addresses the struggle of the victims over the years.

“Thou Shalt Not Abuse…” includes the testimonies of several Argentine victims of abuse at the hands of priests. The documentary also speaks with Barbara Blaine, president of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP), who explains how John Paul II, Benedict XVI, and Francis failed to address sexual violence among clergy.

A discussion of sexual abuse in the Church of Argentina requires direct statements about the responsibility of the current Pope and his generation of Argentine clergy.

In this sense, “Thou Shalt Not Abuse” exposes the Vatican’s double standard embodied by Pope Francis, the supposedly “progressive” pope, on one of the most scandalous issues surrounding the Catholic Church.

Neither Trump nor Biden Represent the Interests of the Striking Workers

Donald Trump skipped the second GOP debate to go to Michigan to speak on the UAW strike. This, one day after Biden became the first U.S. president to walk a picket line, represents the on-going fight between the parties to win influence over the working class.

The Deadliest Year for U.S.-Mexico Border Crossings Occurred during Biden’s Administration

The humanitarian crisis at the border was created by capitalism. Voting for a lesser evil won’t save the Latin American working class; it will take international, political and strategic solidarity across borders to build a combative immigrants’ rights movement.
