“Some 216,000 children – mostly boys – have been sexually abused by clergy in the French Catholic Church since 1950, a damning new inquiry has found. The head of the inquiry said there were at least 2,900-3,200 abusers, and accused the Church of showing a ‘cruel indifference towards the victims.’ Pope Francis ‘felt pain’ on hearing about the inquiry’s finding, a Vatican statement said.” OK, he feels pain. Let’s call it a wash. (When people aren’t punished for crimes, they will keep committing those crimes. And I’m not sure how you describe systematically committing mass child rape, but “cruel indifference” doesn’t cut it.)
