← Pope 'could cancel UK visit' over 'offensive' Foreign Office memo

David Blackwell's Avatar Jump to comment 186 by David Blackwell

Senior papal aids suggesting that the British Foreign Office hadn't taken strong enough disciplinary action against those responsible for the offensive document in question: the mind boggles. Does this offence even begin to compare with complicity in the widespread cover-up of the sexual abuse of children? Unbelievable. (Or is it, given those involved?)

Meanwhile the British government and its officials continue their despicable snivelling vis-a-vis the Vatican. Again, again and again, why are senior Roman Catholic Church officials complicit in the cover-up of the sexual abuse of children not before a court of law?
