Pope Trouble: More Evidence of a Catholic Conspiracy of Silence

pope-benedict.jpgI don't expect to see the end of Catholicism just yet, but it is getting increasingly difficult for me to understand how any moral individual would want to associate with this organization. With many child sexual abuse scandals already raging, news out of Germany is getting awfully close to Pope Benedict XVI himself. Moreover, the Pope is coming under fire for a 2001 Vatican document he wrote advising bishops to conceal clergy abuse cases.

According to the Huffington Post,
The revelations have put the spotlight on Benedict's handling of abuse claims both when he was archbishop of Munich from 1977-1982 and then the prefect of the Vatican office that deals with such crimes - a position he held until his 2005 election as pope.
Questions are mounting about what Pope Benedict XVI knew about child sexual abuse in Germany and what he did or did not do about it while he was stationed there. Some are going so far as to suggest that this pope may soon be through.
