← Christopher Hitchens: Arrest The Pope!

David Blackwell's Avatar Jump to comment 97 by David Blackwell

A further irony of this abysmal saga is that instead of the Vatican ‘fessing up to its horrific wrongdoing, it’s now appealing to, wait for it, secular (i.e. earthly) law to squirm out of things.

If the Vatican manages to evade justice by having the pope declared a head of state, one positive thing is that the public will widely view this for what it is, i.e. a guilty person who got away with being a party to a horrible crime.

Not a great tag for the Vicar of Christ on earth to have hanging from his neck over his crucifix.
