Crimen Sollicitationis (English: crime of solicitation) is the first single by Spanish Ska punk group Ska-P from their album Lágrimas y Gozos. The song was released as a single on 5 September 2008, and the album on 8 September 2008.[1]

Title and text[edit]

The title of the song refers to a document sent out by the Vatican in 1962 specifying the procedures to be followed when trying cases of clerics accused of having made sexual advances in connection with the sacrament of Confession. However, the lyrics are about paedosexual behavior by priests and equate Pope Benedict XVI with Judas. In the document it is expressed that the same rules are to be followed when dealing with denunciations of homosexual, paedophile or zoophile behaviour by clerics.
