Responsibility lies with Vatican

Published 09/12/2009

The information that the Papal Nuncio, and hence the highest authority in the Vatican, was privy to the physical, sexual and emotional abuse of children is hardly surprising.

It obviously required the complicity of the men at the top to manoeuvre clerical abusers from country to country.

Even the most devout members of the faith must be horrified.

How can such utter evil be reconciled with the notion of purity and righteousness?

That surely must be a question that once against perplexes those adhering to the God thesis.
