The Bishops Knew and Are Very Sad You Found Out
Thu, 16 Aug 2018 14:03:44 +0000
There is nothing more sickening, disgusting, blood-boiling, rage inducing than the news coming out of Pennsylvania this week. More than 300 priests were found to have been involved in molesting children. Even worse? Bishops and Cardinals knew about it and did nothing. Well, that’s not entirely true because they did do something. They covered it

Catechism of the Council of Trent: “The power of life and death is permitted to certain civil magistrates because theirs is the responsibility under law to punish the guilty and protect the innocent.
