The Vatican, for the first time, has published what is being called a “handbook” on dealing with sexual abuse:
“Civil law concerning reporting of crimes to the appropriate authorities should always be followed,” state the guidelines, compiled from existing Vatican rules.
“Should”. That is an interesting word. So who decides if it should be reported or not? And if they don’t report it, I guess there isn’t any problem since the Vatican really isn’t saying they must report it.
That’s the Vatican for you – the world’s oldest organized crime family. Actually that isn’t a good thing to say. Organized crime families wouldn’t actively support the raping and torturing of children, so organized crime families are much better people.
