Today, foxnews.com reports that pope Benedict XVI said:
[...]the clerical abuse scandal represents "the greatest persecution of the church," but said it was born from sins inside the church, not outside.
And he "called for profound purification and penance within the church as well as pardon and justice."
A. I'd like to know exactly what the "pardon and justice" part of this statement means. (Seems to me like he could have replaced that phrase with "business as usual.")
B. Why does this seem to me to be very reminiscent of alleged "psychiatrist" william hamilton ayres molesting lots of little boys, and then getting involved in writing “Practice Parameters for the Forensic Evaluation of Children and Adolescents Who May Have Been Physically or Sexually Abused” for the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Hmmm... seems like a pattern of common behavior of molesters if you ask me...
