I personally consider it disgraceful that a human being believed to be a representative of God can say sorry for the crimes that Catholic priests have committed and the whole of the Cathiolic community should hang their heads in shame. If it is justified for a priest to continue in the priesthood without being dismissed and punished by court of law, then release all those outside the Catholic ministry and let them go free. Once again an excuse based of forgiveness but only by a false human being who foolish people believe he is a direct represetative of God. The Pope is as guilty as the priests as according to law, he is an accessory after the fact. God clearly states that all should obey the laws of the land. Is the Pope outside the laws of human rights and think he is God himself and not his representative. Time he looks at human rights. Time all the wealth that he controls was given to compensate for those who have suffered. I am sure he is well looked after and is comforted by those law breakers.
