Will the Church do the RIGHT thing NOW!

This should never have happened, if these Men were true to their faith!
How brave is this man for speaking out? May there be many more brave enough.
It's sad to think how many children and people could have been saved the awful trauma, if someone had spoken up before!
Now, what we await id ACTION!

The pope isn't sounding helpful at the moment.

I cant help wondering if this is why the previous Pope retired? Maybe he saw that the excrement was about to hit the cooling device.

It was more than the Catholic Church. Other organisations like the Boy Scouts, boarding schools, and within families, etc. Often termed seduction, not rape, but still abuse of those too young to make an informed consent. The culture of the time had much to answer for.
