Catholic Priest Abuse Rocks Europe
derF
Pope Ratzinger's (er, I mean Benedict XVI) hopes for containment in America of the sex abuse and just plain abuse scandal have rocked Europe and has driven an even larger wedge between an already growing secular region and making it more so. Time magazine has a four page report in their 3/19/10 edition and an update at their website. http://www.time.c...13,00.html

It seems the Pope is busily shoveling in order to cover up the latest scandals and is accomplishing nothing more than dirty hands. Could this be the beginning of the end of the Catholic domination of Europe?
I'll drink to that. Or anything else for that matter.

It is clear from other news sources that the sitting pope not only knew about coverups in various countries, but actively participated in several.

He's a hypocrite-- the only way I would believe that *he* believes his shit, would be if he stepped down in disgrace.

Fuckin' buncha hypocrites the whole lot'of'em

I don't consider it much of a surprise. All but blindly lotal Catholics must have known before now. Still, it's good to see it hit the fan.

Is there an echo in here?

Yeah for some reason I never hear my devoutly Catholic in-laws talk about this stuff. I think they like to keep their heads in the sand.
You're just jealous because the voices are talking to me and not you.

Why would they want to bring it up?

Why, exactly? There's no reason to, I guess, because Fox News never discusses it as far as I can tell. No, the talk lately is about how evil Obama and the Democrats are for giving us all health care.

Well now they can't turn it around on the gays like they usually do.
