This oversight is something support groups are all too aware of and there are demands for a UK inquiry. Graham Wilmer, who runs the Lantern Project which has helped hundreds of sexual abuse victims since , said: "The psychological and emotional damage has affected them throughout their lives. Until they made contact with us, they have had little if any help in dealing with the aftermath. Wilmer was sexually abused by a teacher at a Catholic school and spent years trying to bring his tormentor to justice.

Pope Bans Death Penalty | The American Conservative

He wants the British government to establish a truth and reconciliation commission to address the issue. Longley says the scandal "brings into contrast the priest as man of God, symbol of purity and holiness and the sexual abuse of children as the ultimate betrayal of innocence, representing unspeakable evil. And conspiracy in high places to hide the scandal. No novelist could have invented such a plot.

In spite of earning outright condemnation for its clumsy attempts to sweep matters under the carpet, the church will probably overcome these difficult times. Unlike the Anglican Communion, which buckles under the weight of polarised opinion on homosexuality, the Catholic church always emerges, not entirely unscathed, from adversity. At the start of the 16th century the Vatican was little better than a shit-hole. The question remains why this situation should be judged so grave when the numbers involved are smaller than in the US, where a report found evidence in support of almost 7, allegations.

One possible answer is the cumulative effect of abuse in so many countries. Not the least of the difficulties is financial. Giancarlo Galli, the Italian author of Finanza Bianca, a study of the Vatican's finances, said: "There is nothing less transparent than the accounts of the church. It is known that with all the troubles in the US, the church was very much looking north, across the Alps, and above all to Bavaria, for support.

It has even been suggested that some of the cardinals who elected the then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger as pope cast their votes with one eye on the material benefits of having a German pontiff. This is scarcely the first crisis involving what an Australian victims' group, Broken Rites, has termed black-collar crime.

But never before has a scandal cast doubts on the judgment and authority of a pope. So far the debate has focused on his role in the Peter Hullermann affair. Hullermann was transferred to the Munich diocese when Ratzinger was archbishop, ostensibly for therapy. Though known to be a paedophile, he was moved to a parish where he was convicted of abusing another child.

Christian Weisner, the spokesman for the lay movement, Wir sind Kirche, said that in Munich: "People are asking: 'What did [Benedict] know? What did he do? But Weisner added: "The pope is asking for transparency. So he too should be transparent and ask his successor to open the archives for people to see exactly what happened. The issue of Benedict's responsibility goes far beyond Munich to encompass his subsequent role as pope. Weisner argues that this pope "learned more about clerical sex abuse than any other bishop or cardinal and has done more to fight it than any other cardinal or pope".

But there is a sharp distinction between his attitude while a cardinal and his activities as pope that could yet leave an indelible stain on the reign of Benedict XVI. In he was elected days after declaring that the time had come to sweep "the filth" from his church. At the start of the 16th century the Vatican was little better than a shit-hole.

But there is a sharp distinction between his attitude while a cardinal and his activities as pope that could yet leave an indelible stain on the reign of Benedict XVI. In he was elected days after declaring that the time had come to sweep "the filth" from his church. By then he had read — and was disgusted by — files on more than 3, clerical abuse cases that were channelled to his department by a decree issued four years earlier by John Paul II. Most of the cases dealt with by the Vatican department in recent years resulted in the accused being removed, if not defrocked.

The problem for Benedict is that, as in many other theological respects, he changed his mind. The US Vatican-watcher John Allen this week published in National Catholic Reporter an extract from the transcript of a conference in Spain that showed that, as late as November , Ratzinger dismissed the American abuse scandals as the result of a "planned campaign" in the media. By the then cardinal had signed what critics claim was an incitement to the obstruction of justice. A letter he circulated to bishops the previous year reminded them that internal church inquiries into certain serious offences were covered by what is known as papal secrecy, for which the penalty is excommunication.
