The Vatican has failed to stop abuse. Now the law must.

NOVEMBER 15, 2020. The Sunday Times. "The church had one simple thing to achieve: stop its clergy sexually molesting children. It failed."  In Today's Sunday Times their letters editor Stephen Bleach calls for a mandatory reporting law. He was a victim of Laurence Soper who is now serving 18 years after many on the run. The Vatican has failed to stop abuse. Now the law must Good news for Catholics and for the parents of the 970,000 children in Britain who attend Catholic schools: the Pope has clamped down on child abuse. He has issued a document condemning paedophile behaviour by clergy and setting out procedures to punish it. This would be reassuring, if not for one thing. The document — Crimen Sollicitationis, in its grand Latin name — was issued by Pope John XXIII in 1962. As you may have gathered, it didn’t work too well.

Three Popes Enabled McCarrick’s Rise to Power Despite Well-Documented Evidence of His Serial Abuse of Seminarians and Minors

  FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 10 November, 2020. Three Popes Enabled McCarrick’s Rise to Power Despite Well-Documented Evidence of His Serial Abuse of Seminarians and Minors. U.S. victims call on Catholic President-elect Biden to respond. In 1988, James Grein, a child victim of former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, revealed the abuse to Pope John Paul II, telling him, “McCarrick has been abusing me since I was young.” In the room with John Paul II were the second and third most powerful Vatican officials, Italian Cardinal Angelo Sodano, the Vatican Secretary of State, and his personal secretary, now Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz. According to Grein, John Paul II, now a Catholic saint, responded with a blank stare and then absolved Grein of “his sins” and sent him on his way. Thirty-two years since that 1988 encounter and after mountains of evidence from bishops, cardinals, experts and victims of McCarrick’s serial sexual abuse, the Vatican [...]
