To thine own self be true

Respect should be earned

Posted by Polonius on 26 April, 2010

The emerging evidence suggests that the pope was involved in a number of incidents where paedophile priests were protected and their crimes covered up. I'm not aware of evidence that this was widespread or systematic, but the church is doing nothing to counter the widespread belief that it was both. Of course, one instance is too many, and it now appears there are three or four credible accusations that really need to be investigated. It is grotesque but true that these crimes pale into insignificance against his idiotic, but legal, pronouncements on condom use, which contribute to 1.5 million deaths a year in Africa alone.

And now the UK Foreign Office has seen fit to apologise to this grubby little man! For shame!
