    I don't get it. He is 1/100000000th of the man Pope John Paul II was, yet they let him tarnish the Pope's funeral and embarass the Church.

    Cardinal Law should no longer be a cardinal, he should be sitting in a Mass. jail cell being somebody's bitch, getting molested in the same way those poor kids were by Catholic priests who violated everything sacred about Christianity and humanity.

    I was thinking the same thing. I thought, maybe they were trying to give him some prestige back or something. But this is not the way to do it. Further, like you said, this guy deserves so much less.

    Shameful to the Pope and everyone else. And this guy is just reveling in getting off w/ little to no punishment.

    I know that the American catholic church had a lot of children's rape affairs - unfortunatly not only the US church... - .
    Did this cardinal Law protect the priests who raped the kids ?

    I'm not really aware of this affair.


    But I understand it hurts you.

    Basically, Cardinal Law refused to punish the priests who had been found guilty of child rape. Horrendous leadership on his part.

    He also helped shift around the pedophile priests into unsuspecting parrishes by writing for them "warm" letters of praise for their service.

    Even worse than that - the sorry bastard quietly transferred pedophile priests to other parrishes and never warned the new parrish about the fact that the new priest had molested children in his former position. Law was instrumental in covering up the crimes of the child molestors. He should be in prison, not in the Vatican delivering a mass for the Pope.
