The news for the Catholic Church and Pope Benedict keeps getting worse:
Top Vatican officials ”” including the future Pope Benedict XVI ”” did not defrock a priest who molested as many as 200 deaf boys, even though several American bishops repeatedly warned them that failure to act on the matter could embarrass the church, according to church files newly unearthed as part of a lawsuit.
If the molestation of 200 boys doesn’t lead to an immediate defrocking, what the hell does? The church hierarchy has really lost its moral center on this and needs to come clean with it all. All of it. No more whitewashes. Out with it.
