Shame and Fear
Inside Germany's Catholic Sexual Abuse Scandal
According to the instructions from Rome, the bishops were to deal very
firmly with each individual case -- so firmly, in fact, that
everything would remain within the confines of the Holy Church. After
all, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith -- formerly known
as the Inquisition -- has centuries of experience in conducting
internal investigations. The Vatican has always filled all the
positions in such investigations -- prosecutors, defendants, judges --
from within its own ranks, while the investigation files have been
kept in the secret archives of the Roman Curia.

The subject of abuse committed by priests has no place in Joseph
Ratzinger's world of academics and prayer.

Yet the Rat, was the head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith,
when most of the cover up happened.

Amazing.
