Latest post of the previous page:

The Vatican is to investigate claims of sexual misconduct which surrounded the resignation of Cardinal Keith O'Brien, it has emerged.
And then do what exactly?
Haven't they put him out to grass somewhere out of harms way? Like they do with all transgressors,
I don't suppose the "appointed by god" Mrs Saxe Coburg had anything to say on the topic when she met the grand inquisitor( Poope.)

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Sadly, one is no longer surprised at these sort of revelations

Not sure about leprosy, more like a cancer that needs excising and treating, right down to its root causes, ASAP.

Did I hear that he has not discounted the idea of priests marrying in future as well?

The Catholic Church Has Paid Out $3,994,797,060.10 as a Result of the Sex Abuse Scandals
You can’t put a price on how much damage the Catholic Church’s sex abuse scandals have done to the victims. But you sure as hell can count how much the Church has paid out as a result of those lawsuits. And that’s what Jack and Diane Ruhl of the National Catholic Reporter did.

According to their research, since 1950, that amount comes out to $3,994,797,060.10. Nearly $4 billion. And that’s an underestimate since we still don’t know how much was spent for therapy for the victims, help for the offenders, and the creation of “safe environment” programs.

Catholic Church linked to Uganda child labour
During his November visit to Africa, the continent which now counts nearly 200m Roman Catholics, Pope Francis said that children were some of the greatest victims of Africa's historical exploitation by other powers. He also urged young Africans to resist corruption. But should the Vatican be doing more to put its own house in order? A BBC investigation has uncovered evidence that church land in Uganda is being used for child labour.

Catholic bishops not obliged to report clerical child abuse, Vatican says
The Catholic church is telling newly appointed bishops that it is “not necessarily” their duty to report accusations of clerical child abuse and that only victims or their families should make the decision to report abuse to police.

A document that spells out how senior clergy members ought to deal with allegations of abuse, which was recently released by the Vatican, emphasised that, though they must be aware of local laws, bishops’ only duty was to address such allegations internally.

“According to the state of civil laws of each country where reporting is obligatory, it is not necessarily the duty of the bishop to report suspects to authorities, the police or state prosecutors in the moment when they are made aware of crimes or sinful deeds,” the training document states.

Further dodging of pastoral, if not legal, responsibility by the Rat Catchers.

Am I surprised? No way!

The Catholic Church is a large organisation, but there comes a point where you have to wonder whether there are any in it who aren't abusers or who know someone who is: Pennsylvania grand jury finds 50 Roman Catholic priests raped hundreds of children

How morally bankrupt is the Catholic Church? Catholic Church claimed child sex abuse victims ‘consented’
