Roman Catholic Church Declared Criminal Organization

I have not heard anything about this in the mainstream news media, but it appears that the Roman Catholic Church was declared a transnational criminal organization earlier this month by the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS). The declaration came in response to Pope Francis' prohibition of the reporting of child abuse within the church.
"Pope Francis is telling every Catholic in the world to break the laws of their own country and give aid and comfort to child rapists. That's not simply a grossly immoral act but a war crime, since he's attacking the laws and sovereignty of other nations, and threatening the safety of their people" commented George Dufort, the Belgian-based Secretary of the International Common Law Court of Justice, which successfully prosecuted former Pope Benedict and other Vatican officials last February.
I would have thought this would have been big news.

Update: Yes, I realize that this ITCCS is not a legit organization but a one-person operation pretending to be something it is not. I appreciate those of you who called my attention to this, but I am aware of it already. I guess I thought that the title of the "organization" would make it sufficiently obvious that it was not a real thing, but I probably should have clarified this in the initial post to reduce confusion.

I posted this because I think it is important to call attention to child rape by clergy in as many different ways as we possibly can. Clearly, I don't do this sort of tongue-in-cheek thing very well on the Internet.
