If the Roman Catholic Church is so firm in its commitment to protect innocent fetuses from harm, how come it’s not quite so firm in its commitments to protect innocent children from the predations of its priests? Pope Benedict is famous for his stern lectures on morality and his disdain for homosexuality – plus, of course, his absolute refusal to consider women for the priesthood. How would it appear if he were looking the other way when sexual behavior far worse than consensual sex before marriage or homosexual relations was running rampant in his own church, under the seal and protection of the papacy itself?
