Oh man I don’t often write about the Catholic Church being as I left the church decades ago. But I was educated in the Church and it’s schools so I feel that gives me unique perspective on this.
That a Cardinal can be convicted of a crime to me says it all about the Catholic hierarchy. You do realize a Cardinal is potentially one step away from being the infallible Bishop of Rome aka Pope.
But I knew this would happen eventually. I knew the Church couldn’t keep burying accusations of child sexual abuse. And they can no longer seal the records of priests being transferred to other diocese etc.
Now here’s the thing, if you can pinch a Cardinal – you can most certainly find evidence enough to take down a Pope or former Pope.
It’s about damn time.
