He is in his late eighgties and very ill.
What good would it be for him to be in prison now.
Are you willing to pay for his incarceration?

Oh, and by the way, he was never convicted of anything.
Don't you think it curious that his two accusers waited years and years to accuse him?

Perhaps they hoped for a cash settlement!

I don't care if he is 108! IIf he is guilty he needs to be punished!! Yes we are paying for people in prison now for sex charges!! What makes him special!!!! Must be a little something to it because the congregation of the doctrine found him guilty of something!!!

Yikes!
TheVatican, you are one cold-hearted person!
The man has not been convicted of anything, yet you want to throw him in prison.
Perhaps he has suffered greatly just because of the shame he has gone through since 2006.

The pervert bastard should be hanged by the neck. The average person would be serving jail time. You can look at his face and see pervert written all over it. Makes you want to invest in a butt protector hanging around these guys. Every denomination has problems. Some worship places you have to keep your hands on your wife and Wallet.

For people who wonder why it takes so long to come forward.. it is the fear people will not believe them. As someone who was sexually abused multiple times as a child, not by a priest but by different family members, it is an unbelievable thing to overcome. Judgement from others that call you a liar for finally trying to move forward is amazing to me. As we grow into adults we learn to cope but until you live through it you will never know the severe scars left by the actions of people that were suppose to protect and love you.
