Pope Benedict made several apologies to victims who were sexually abused by clerics, within the Catholic church. Yet to this day, he has taken no decisive actions to punish any high ranking church officials for enabling, empowering, and covering up sex crimes against kids. But yet, there is still time. He has two weeks left, he can fire several bishops and cardinals, if he believes at all in moral law.
Just to name a few..
–Cardinal Law, who was given a plush job in the Vatican, is still in that high ranking position
–Bishop Finn, who is a convicted criminal is still the bishop of the KC-St Joe diocese
–Cardinal Mahony, horrific cover up of sex crimes per thousands of recently released LA archdiocese secret documents, he is still a cardinal and can now vote for a new pope.

We hope there is someone within the college of cardinals who could be a pope with integrity, who will start to take immediate actions to stop these crimes against innocent children.
Yet with that in mind, since all of these cardinals were promoted by popes, we have our doubts. So we hope that outside law enforcement will get more involved and investigate these crimes against humanity.

Children are safest when child predators and those who enable and conceal their crimes are held responsible.
