    Most of the perpetrators are probably 'retired' from the church, drawing a pension. The least the church should do is stop supporting them financially....
    And the state should name them. If they won't, the victims should....

    SO true. I think the Catholic Church is going to become essentially meaningless over the next 10 years as a result of decisions like this. They've basically made themselves irrelevant to the vast majority of the world. I know that there has to be major distress in Ireland, where so much of the population is so devoutly religious, and has been harmed so greatly.

    The loss of faith is hard.

    I wonder if there is a statute of limitations on child molestation in Ireland. Ideally, they should be prosecuted.

    If Canon law didn't superceed normal societies laws then they would not have the motivation or ability to cover these things up for decades.

    How many Catholics used these laws to knowingly brush these horrible atrocities under the carpet?

    The most interesting response to this report was made by the newly appointed Archbishop of Westminster, the Most Reverend Vincent Nichols.

    You can read it in my thread, "The Rape of Irish Children" in religion and philosophy.

    For me he typifies the current crop of turd that inhabit this church.

    Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come onto me.
