    that he brings accountability and transparency to the Church. Because without it, there will never be a clean house.

    Pedophilia is just part of the abuse problem that has gone on. I never had a priest sexually abuse me in my years in Catholic schools, but I experienced plenty of horrendous abuse and neglect in the physical and psychological sense.

    It's not that the typical Catholic official was a monster, but that they were all hard wired to do their best not to notice the monsters, even while they were enabling them.

      the catholic church has zero credibility at this point. they behave like any other giant, arrogant corporation; they lawyer up and pay their victims off.

      it's weak.

      it's also unfortunate since there are many hard working Catholics who serve, they are in the trenches every day at the soup kitchens and providing shelter for those in need.. they are doing what Jesus advocated.

      they I respect and admire.

        The CC has over the centuries often acted not like the moral leader of the world, but an corporation, or even a regime concerned with covering it's butt, and protecting it's short term interests. And the first step toward this - and it's only one step - is openness and accountability.
