Subject: RE: BS: Clerical abuse of kids: More Revelations
Well I'm a very simple man, Joe. So what I would like to see is the Church ruthlessly and publicly outing every priest who is known to be or suspected to be a child abuser, now or in the past, dead or alive, all details handed to the police. We want to see a gritty willingness to stop the rot, not a lot of simpering requests for forgiveness. And all good Catholics, the Pope included, should disown the sainting of John Paul II, during whose long rule thousands of people continued to suffer abuse at the hands of his priests. His canonisation revealed entirely the wrong kind of intent.
