Papal arrogance over child abuse
Published 30/03/2010 | 08:09
THE Pope calls serious worldwide discussion about clerical child sexual abuse "petty gossip".
Not only did the church cause a great deal of harm to children and adults, it kept the crimes under wraps.
The threat of excommunication is emotional blackmail based on superstition, and unfair, since most people were signed up for Catholicism as soon as they were born.
