Cardinal Law from Boston? What ever happened to Cardinal Law.<quoted text>
The difference? Catholics are NOT PROSECUTED and receive NO JAIL time. The odd Protestant is often prosecuted and their entire church seized. Tony Alamo is one example even tho the state went in looking for child pron and found none. They chose to instead charge him with transporting children across state lines. He of course has more than one church in multiple states. He was set up and is in prison today, for the crime of preaching against the Pope.
Then there's Waco where the church was burned to the ground, although they were an armed church, and I do not agree with that. The original charges were child abuse.
The Roman Church made news FINALLY after YEARS of abuse that does continue today. Cardinal Bernard Law was simply relocated to Rome.
In his new home in Rome, Bernard Cardinal Law has built a pretty comfortable life for himself, presiding over a stunning basilica, mingling with admirers—and enjoying as much power as ever.
....... Not only the former Cardinals position’s prestige that aroused objections, but the luxury that reportedly went with it. Internet chatter described the archpriest’s apartment, housed in a building attached to the basilica’s south side, as “palatial,” with “frescoes on the wall.” Those who’ve visited say the space consists of six or seven nicely appointed rooms—a far cry from the four-story mansion on Commonwealth Avenue that Law lived in here, but nonetheless a decent spread in the Esquilino neighborhood, where real estate easily runs upward of $400 per square foot. The New York Times reported that Law would receive a stipend of about $5,000 per month, out of which the cardinal pays living expenses for himself and the two or three nuns who keep house for him. All in all, it’s a comfortable existence. Law regularly attends diplomatic and social events, and is occasionally seen dining out with friends. One of his favorite spots is said to be Cecilia Metella, a moderately expensive country restaurant on the Via Appia Antica where the prix fixe dinners run between $60 and $85.
The good ole life for a man that cost the followers in the arch-diocese of Boston millions $$ and grief for all of the clergy he covered up for.
thats what I am talking about! Accountability.
