Agreed.
The sex abuse actually began under and continued under Paul VI.
Considering how obsessed he was with Vatican II, not sure he would have been completely aware of what was happening with US diocese. JPII seemed to grasp most of the implications and what was happening. From what I'd seen in the diocese of Toledo, there *was* deliberate coverup at the diocesean level when accusations were made and the Bishop made some deliberate moves. Quite a few journalists covered the events up there, and while some of the details each revealed did differ (usually the more far flung ones, such as the details regarding possible Satanic worship among the priests in the Toledo diocese), they generally agreed upon the who and when.
SNAP continues to give total hell to any priest with evidence and legitimate accusations as well as non-religious involved with pedophilia. Sadly, I do know a few folks within SNAP. I myself was never abused, was fortunate that I wasn't in any of the parishes it occurred, but the stories are ugly.
I have to admire Benedict at least for coming to this realization--not sure if I have an opinion one way or another on how it will affect the RC. But it's a good place to be just looking at it having at least the past two popes who are attempting some modernization at least of the papacy--one with travel and opening up communication internationally and with other faiths and with this one who is brave enough to say "I can't continue." Shows not only bravery but enough humility that indicates he feels his resignation is best.
I can honestly say, I never knew anyone victimized. And that's with eight years in Catholic school, four years as an altar boy, a father who was a Knight and a mother who was on the parish council for almost 20 years. I guess it was just random chance.

He's elderly, tired and a man of God. I'm sure God aided him in his decision.

And I, for one, am dam sick and tired of every Catholic clergy being automatically connected with pedophilia. My husband was raised Catholic, attended Catholic school and was an Alter boy forever. Never once was any Priest anything but respectful and kind to him.

You don't paint an entire group with the same brush. It's unfair and particularly to a group that has served pretty much selfishly. And I'm not Catholic.

The present Pope has served well. At least he is stepping down prior to entering dementia, allowing others to make his crucial decisions.

Actually she poked me looking for some attention, and when I ignored her, her feelings were hurt and she stooped to a personal attack. You know how women are.

Toledo is not all that big of a community--at least from my perspective. Nowhere near the size of Columbus and it happened to really affect my parents' community--a few of the priests involved or implicated were in the Polish parishes, sadly. One of the priests DID grow up in the parish I did; and he is defrocked, I knew that family. One of the girls abused attended high school with me, I cannot imagine what she must have gone through--no one knew in high school, of course. Another classmate is a psychological counselor/consultant to SNAP. I learned about the classmate who was abused later after we'd graduated, when all the ugly details came to a boil when a nun was killed at Mercy Hospital. And yes, the priest did that.

Ugly, ugly, ugly story. It's one that after all this time still rips at the heart of that community.

Did mom put a filter on your computer again as a babysitter since she's working the swing shift? Poor wee man, can't surf the porn sites when mama's away so he vents his frustration and anger here? Tsk. Tsk.

Wow. I think I read about that several years ago. He wasn't caught for over 20 years, if I remember.

Depends on how you define "caught." Many knew, or suspected. It took over 20 years to convict him. He is now in prison, serving 15 to life. I doubt he'll walk out alive.

<quoted text>I suspect being pope is like being POTUS or a CEO...there are always going to be things the big man knows nothing about, whether for nefarious or benign reasons. The child abuse scandal as a whole wasn't one of them. But I'm betting that JPII was a) unaware of the extent of the priest shuffling in US dioceses and b) was through age and illness not able to get a handle on things. Now, if you remember what he was like in the early years of his reign, I can't imagine that if he had known then that he wouldn't have put the hammer down.
I agree that Benedict is wise in realizing that he's just worn out. If a pope can't travel, his impact is greatly diminished.
1. I like Benedict. Understated, traditional, didn't want to be Pope in the first place. The fact that he put the institution ahead of his own interests in clinging to power, says volumes about him.

2. JPII and Benedict are of a different generation and a different orientation (no pun intended). They are Europeans and they are men of God. This kind of sick behavior isn't something a religious man of that generation who grew up in the church could ever contemplate.

3. The Pope is head of state, as Vatican City is the only territory that remains of what used to be the Papal States, with most of the territory being ceded to Italy.

4. The papacy is the world's longest standing monarchy, so they must be doing something right.

That's a tragic story. My friend's a prison counselor. If he's alive now it's because they have him segregrated.(Which means 1 hour a day out of your cell alone. No contact with anyone. It drives them insane. Really, they go insane.) The inmates will kill him. The lifer's don't care and the guards honestly don't either. If he's in population, he's wishing he was dead everyday. Those guys will emotionally and physically torture him for fun.

Post conviction relief. Not much chance unless some huge, major trial error was made. But he is most likely getting free representation from the State attorney. Who won't try hard in this case.

Gerald Robinson is likely segregated, no doubt.

Why he won't get out alive is there is a lot of political pressure to keep him in prison. I have no doubt that inmates would minimally beat him to a pulp if not kill him if he were in the general population. It took practically the entire diocese to pressure the Bishop, with a lot of investigative journalism by David Yonke, to get this man in prison. It was one of those rare instances where the faithful brought a Bishop to his knees and relented to investigation of the Church's records of Robinson's assignments--and that was a cat and mouse game. Many of those who investigated or prosecuted the case were Catholic. Another reason it took so long--people were wondering whether Robinson should have even been tried in Lucas County--would he have gotten a fair trial due to the notoriety and the fact it was very likely anyone who was Catholic would have been familiar with the case and held a firm opinion.(Very large Catholic population there).

RCC could have done a better job cleaning house of the LGBTQ child molestors.

I realize that RCC may have had some trepidation because of the army of shyster lawyers waiting to attack with lawsuits claiming illegal discrimination against Diversity people.

Diversity leaders unleashed an army of shyster lawyers to attack the Boy Scouts too, to enforce their Diversity dogma.
