Impressive.

...and about time.

It takes a lot of courage to go against something as huge and powerful as the Catholic Church.

It does, but there are so many victims, and the coverup is so systemic that once it gets rolling it shouldn't take long for a critical mass of people speaking out to emerge. So many devout catholics have for so many generations just prayed and told themselves these are isolated incidents and after all priests are human too and hoped this would some how all just go away. It won't, not until full criminal responsibility is taken by the Vicar of Christ.

There are some substantial jurisdictional issues, but it does raise the issue of why there have been so few criminal prosecutions (one?) and whether the practices still continue.

It would be interesting to know the number of priests defrocked for thought crimes over the last 20 years compared to the number of priests defrocked for sex crimes. A quick google yielded no results. Ratzinger was head of the Congregation of the Faith for many years so he would have been deeply involved in both issues.

The ICC only has jurisdiction for crimes committed after its creation in 2002, so the cases have to be within the last 9 years.

Proper jurisdiction is corrextly vested in a three-Judge tribunal, viz, the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.

Right?

It was cloudy today and it rained. I'm going to sue the sun.

Where's everyone's favorite 40 year old long suffering abused altar boy that not even a sick clergyman would "love" on this subject?
