Even when it comes to the protection of minors? Even?! As if the protection of minors should be a trivial concern?

And, NO, it does not belong in the first place to the (press-shy) bishop, it belongs to the gendarmes!!

It may just be my opinion, but as long as there continues to be more and more victims going to the authorities I think that says all that needs to be said about how serious the Vatican is about stopping the problem.
