“More than 100,000 people filled St. Peter’s Square on Sunday in a major show of support for Pope Benedict XVI over the clerical sex abuse scandal.”
They are supporting “what”, exactly? The Pope’s well thought out plan on how to tackle the issue? Cause there doesn’t appear to be one. The Pope’s courageous actions when faced with child rape cases? He not only did nothing in most cases, but in the case of Cardinal Law he allows him to stay in the Vatican where he can avoid extradition. Why does this man deserve support?
So, 100,000 people filled St Peter’s Square to show support for a man that did worse than nothing when children were being raped. Great.
Like Dr Doom, the Pope sits in his private country to avoid prosecution, and he gets supporters coming to him.
