I come from a humble catholic upbringing. I was taught that the Pope was perfect. In fact, he was the closest thing to god himself according to the church. So imagine what a shocking revelation for me to learn that the Pope is a man just like all mankind. That his entrance into heaven has the same requirements mine have. He needs food, water and rest just like I do. He worked hard to be where he is today just like I am. What makes him different is he is a leader and he can make a difference in the world I live in. He has direct control over the priests under him. Because of the power the Pope and The Roman Catholic Church hold leaders from all over the world seek his counsel. Yet here they are in the news again because of another pedophile priest.
How long has the Roman Catholic Church been aware of the sex abuse problem, to long. How many more times will we hear in the news about another coverup. When will the new leadership of the Roman Catholic Church come forward and say enough is enough. Why did the Pope protect, conceal, and deny any wrong doing of another Priest?
