Paternity Testing A Holy Man: Cardinal Franc Rode

According to the Vatican Insider, a news website, a DNA test has cleared an accused Cardinal, Franc Rode, of fathering a child by the name of Peter S., who is a 42 year old German citizen. The German man claimed that he was born out of a relationship between his mother, Tanja Breda, and the Cardinal who, at the time, was a young priest and professor on the faculty for Theology in Ljubljana.

According to Wikipedia, “Franc Rode is a Slovenian Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church. He is the prefect emeritus of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, having served as prefect from 2004 to 2011. He was elevated to the cardinalate in 2006.

This Cardinal Deacon has emphatically denied these claims and, after speaking with his alleged son, he agreed to take a paternity test to prove that he was not the father. The DNA test was conducted at the Munich University Institute of Legal Medicine and it was confirmed that the DNA paternity test results between the two men were, in fact, negative. It has been reported that upon learning the results of the test the Cardinal made two public statements:

1) “I am glad that the results are those I expected at the start. Defamation of this kind isolates a man in his pain.”

2) “After all they’ve done to me they deserve this…”, in which he is referring to proposed lawsuits against the media for alleged breaches of his right to privacy.

While the paternity test did disprove fatherhood, one must wonder why a woman would name a holy man as the father of her child. Only the mother and the Cardinal know what really happened between them, if anything, 43 years prior.
