    BBC News - Pope pins abuse scandal on Church 'sin'

    Quote(Pope Benedict XVI says the Church's child abuse scandal shows that the greatest threat to Catholicism comes from "sin within" the Church.)

    One must wonder what was the first clue that led this Pope to this decision?

    Or maybe the solution is that which I've heard from priests: that those caught doing this should be defrocked since there is no cure for this problem. Just moving them to different parishes and covering up the problem solves nothing.

    Who shall ascend the hill of the Lord? And who shall stand in his holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who does not lift up his soul to what is false, and does not swear deceitfully. Psalm 24
    "True law is right reason in agreement with nature . . . Whoever is disobedient is fleeing from himself and denying his human nature [and] will suffer the worst penalties . . ." - Cicero
