When a church has tolerated and kept secret the sexual abuse of thousands of children, usually young, underage boys, should be faced with the full arm of the law and made to pay as it is a serious crime against humanity – this church needs to have reform and make drastic changes.
The act of covering it all up will no longer be an option. The crimes of the Catholic church are well documented and the evidence is there. The Vatican and the bishops have muted these incidents for to long, in an effort to protect the reputation and the finances of the Catholic Church. The church started skulduggery when it decided to try the case under medieval canon law, which would lean towards the defendant and really gave no real effective punishment.
