Ratzinger "Led Cover-Up of Child Abuse by Priests"?

February 18, 2010

That’s the claim leveled in this article (link). Take the claim with a grain of salt – the article itself identifies the man who is now known as Benedict XVI as “Thomas Ratzinger” rather than “Joseph Ratzinger.” This, coming hard on the heels of the revelation that John Paul II practiced the pagan practice of self-flagellation (as Triablogue has recently critiqued here and here) cannot help but make some people reconsider their mistaken image of recent popes as holy men (even if they cannot help but admit the depravity of some of the medieval popes like Alexander VI).
