The age of sexual consent at the Vatican is 12

The Vatican is its own tiny nation. Check out the age of consent for sex in this nation:

Worldwide ages of consent

You read that right – it is 12 years old for male-female sex.

Completely in line with the insanity described here.

    What?! And they say we heathens are too loose and promiscuous!

    There is an equal age of consent set at 12 years of age since 1929, when the Vatican City introduce the same law as the Codic Penal from Italy. When there is a relationship of dependence the age of consent is at 15 years. However, it was announced in late 2008 that the Vatican was breaking with Italian legal tradition in order to oppose many Italian laws.

    This is what can happen to the gullible when they believe anything they are told, especially those with an agenda. No I am not RC. Late..

    Christian morality:
    It is O.K. to masacre babies to obey god’s order
    It is O.K. to masacre your brothers, when god is angry
    It is O.K. to kill women who laid with men, and take the virgins as sexual slaves
    It is O.K. to stone a women who got married as non-virgin
    It is O.K. to sell your own daughters as slaves.
    It is O.K. to have incestual sex to obey god’s order to „fill the earth“
    Finally, it is O.K. to have sex with 12 years old child. Christian law allows it!

    Every normal human should be terrified with such a „morality“, run away from it and piss on it from distance, to prevent infection.

    At the time, the Italian Codic Penal had an age of consent of 12 years. It is an arcane law and is irrelevant to Vatican City.

    There are only 824 citizens in Vatican City. None of them are children. They are prelates and guards.

    Children have never been citizens of Vatican City.

    The arcane law of consent doesn’t apply to anyone because there are no children who are citizens.

    It is much like some of the outdated laws in the books in most states. Nobody applies them them any longer even though they are still there. Of course you always have those who have such hate in their heart thy look for anything.

    OK. This consent age is irrelevant in
    today’s Vatican.

    But what is the consent age for having
    Catholicism shoved down your throat?

    Two weeks?

    (arcane, or maybe archaic?)
    Whatever!
    It is, or it was the law in a CHRISTIAN country not so far in the past.

    Who cares what the vatican says about sexual consent, young children 12 years of age and older are already having sex in this country (always have and always will). Maybe you should focus your attention on those old sexual perverts “the Mormon polygamists of Colorado and Texas” or the Jehovas Witnesses and all there sexual abuses that are kept secret. This is just to name a few.

    These blogs are really hilarious. You take their thread, debunk it thoroughly, then they go on to some other myth. I’m not RC, never have been and never will. But for me the freedom loving American, I would never tell a parent what they can or cannot teach their child. That includes atheist who shove “No God” down their child’s throat.

    I had a number of beliefs shoved down my throat at a young age. I’m grateful. Thats what good parents do.

    Such ANGER their Ed. Chill out young man.

    Severin, step away from the ledge there young fella. You seem to be on the brink of a nervous breakdown.

    “If a man and woman are consenting and happen to be brother and sister who cares? Stay out of the bedrooms of others.”

    This is a comment from a christian.
    You find it hilarious?
    My nervs are O.K., thank you.

    No, I do find you hilarious. I don’t care what Christians believe and from reading that statement I take it as “tongue in cheek”. Look it up if you don’t understand the expression.

    You seem to be obsessed to a fault with them for some odd reason. Every statement you make goes back to the same fetish. Get a life.

    „I would never tell a parent what they can or cannot teach their child.“
    Sorry, it is not freedom, it is anarchy.
    Society, organized in a democratic state, has both right and duty to influence rising of children, because children are future adults which will rule this state.
    I do not think parents should be forced about what to teach their children (as in most muslim countries), but to be more educated, („enlightened“?, sorry, English is not my native language), in their duty of raising children.
    Maybe this blog is a modest contribution to this aim.
    I can only hope that at least in one single case, after reading this blog, somebody will put finger on his forehead and start to think instead to just blindly follow religious nonsenses and very dangerous religious „morality“.

    Hmmm, your comment seems a bit spammy. We’re not real big on spam around here.

    Please go back and try again.

    The Vatican, being not more than a tiny city, didn’t create its own laws. It adopted those of its neighbouring European nations, specifically Italy. it was Italy who set their consent age at 12, hence for a while the Vatican sex consent age was 12. Since then, Italy has raised the age to 14, as has the Vatican City.

    Morris,

    Love the post! I never thought of the rants as a fetish but i see your point.

    Some of these guys don’t believe in teaching their kids. They consider it indoctrination. That is why we find the world full of anarchist self-important little monsters running around demanding their entitlements.

    (a) The code of canon law governs marriage, not Italian law.

    The Code of Canon Law is incorporated into the legal system of the VCS by the 1929 Law of the Sources of the Law, one of the six constitutional laws of 1929. Article 11 of the Second Law specifically outlines areas that are regulated solely by canon law. These include marriage, prescription of ecclesiastical property, and gifts and legacies upon death.
    (b) The age of consent refers to marriage, not illicit sexual intercourse (seeing as how that is a mortal sin)

    (c) The age of consent for marriage in the Code of Canon Law is 16 for boys and 14 for girls, and can be set to a higher age by the conference of Bishops. The Code of Canon Law acknowledges that in some cultures girls do marry at this age– many in Africa, Asia, Middle East, etc. But, the Bishops Conference can set a higher age.

    Can. 1083 §1. A man before he has completed his sixteenth year of age and a woman before she has completed her fourteenth year of age cannot enter into a valid marriage.

    §2. The conference of bishops is free to establish a higher age for the licit celebration of marriage.
    (d) The age of consent does not apply to priests because priests are celibate

    (e) If the age of consent as it pertains to illicit sex between persons is governed by the criminal code of Italy, then the Italian government is to be properly accused of being pedophiles, not the VCS.

    Like those who want to force prayer in public schools and their religious symbols of xtianity to be displayed on government property – as if it isn’t enough that their churches are subsidized by the US taxpayers.
