    And as you know someone always takes it up the rear. That would be the powerless. It's always the same. A political thing. Eh?

    Ummm no. We are talking violent rape. Last time I checked that was a felony. Hardly a "Catholic" problem.

    Ballsy move. I hope it goes somewhere, but it won't. Too much international diplomatic baggage in putting the pope on trial. Still, I'd buy popcorn for such an event...

    Violent rape? WTF are you talking about? We weren't talking about any specific crimes. Individuals who commit crimes should be punished for those crimes no matter who they are. Making claims that everyone from the top on down knew specifically what was going on and covered it up or condoned it or encourage it is another matter.

    There's actually quite a bit of evidence against Ratzinger.

    Pope 'led cover-up of child abuse by priests' | News

    Pope implicated in cover-up of paedophile priest sex abuse of 200 deaf boys | Mail Online

    It's extremely hard for me to understand how any ethical person can worship or contribute to this pedophile ring.
