The Stench From Child Abuse Scandal Coming Closer To The Pope

So if the Vatican's chief exorcist blames the Catholic Priest child abuse scandal on the "devil being at work in the Vatican", what does it mean if the Pope was quite possibly involved with covering it up?
A widening child sexual abuse inquiry in Europe has landed at the doorstep of Pope Benedict XVI, as a senior church official acknowledged Friday that a German archdiocese made “serious mistakes” in handling an abuse case while the pope served as its archbishop.
I am still amazed that after 70 plus years of atrocities (that we are aware of) and estimates as high as $2 billion in church funds spent hiding, fighting, and paying off victims, that Catholics haven't said they've had enough. Catholics tread through child sex scandal after child sex scandal involving their leaders and seemingly don't bat an eye while Lutheran's go berserk to the point of leaving the church when their leaders vote to allow non-celibate gays to serve as pastors.

Quite an interesting look at religion and the various faiths if you think about it.
