I haven’t a clue, but I am fair and I know that absolutely no one should be above the law.Are there subtleties of a situation that should be considered when it comes to guilty or innocent?Of course and they are called ” Mitigating circumstances “in this case it could not possibly apply. Where is the pope when we need him. From whom should we look to for guidance at this point? It’s your call.

Since when was there something wrong with the truth, Catholic Church?
Was Jesus supportive of lying to protect people? I’m pretty sure he was all for telling the truth, no matter the cost.

History tell as many hidden crimens.

He is bidding time waiting for instructions from above. Honestly, I think this is the issue. The pope feels that he will be guided in what he should do. So the victims need to start directing their concerns and request to the ‘one up there’ as John XXIII once reminded his long suffering (but devoted) Secretary of State, Cardinal Tardini.
Thank YOU. Nice coverage.
