Information about the Catholic Church’s worldwide, decades-long cover-up of priestly abuse of children is emerging so often and so quickly, I could spend my whole time on this blog just trying to stay abreast. Fortunately, Yahoo! News has a pretty good rundown of recent developments.
It’s too much to hope for that Ratzinger will be toppled by this scandal: he’s too influential, being a head of state and head of a powerful religious sect. And speaking of religious sects, can you imagine how long the head of a worldwide franchise of secular daycare centers would last if similar information came out? At any rate, expect the Pope to keep up the rope-a-dope, and his apologists to continue to make pitiful excuses and live in abject denial. Alas.
