bear A brand new sex scandal is in brewing in the Catholic Church and this time its spilling directly into the Vatican with the New York Times reporting that Pope Benedict/then Cardinal Ratzinger was involved in the cover-up of Rev. Lawrence C. Murphy, a serial pedophile and priest, who molested at least 200 deaf boys in Milwaukee. T-w-o h-u-n-d-r-e-d! Instead of dismissing the priest or condemning him to lakes of fire like they currently do homosexuals, the man was quietly transferred and allowed to live out his days in the priesthood as he requested in letters to Ratzinger—at the time he was the guy in Rome handling this stuff. Is there any God-fearing Catholic who really believes that celibacy in the church is still a good thing? |NYT|
