This is what’s called “a little late off the mark”, but I guess it’s a start:
Pope Benedict XVI’s former diocese says it has suspended a priest convicted in 1986 of sexually abusing minors and accepted the resignation of his superior.
The Archdiocese of Munich and Freising said Monday it had suspended a priest identified only as Rev. H. after having found that he had violated the condition that he not work with youth. The archdiocese said they had no complaints of more offences by the priest.
Right… the fact that nobody else has come forward to complain (yet) absolutely means that nobody else has been victimized by this scum in priest’s clothing. Sure.
And it’s hard to believe they’re serious about dealing with these rotten freaks that infest the priesthood when for every case where intense media scrutiny forces the church to hold someone in its hierarchy accountable to whatever lame extent, there’s a case like this.
