← Pope accused of crimes against humanity by victims of sex abuse

Daniel Clear,

From the article:

According to the document filed by CCR, the pope, as head of the Catholic church, is ultimately responsible for the sexual abuse of children by priests and for the cover-ups of that abuse. The group argues that he and others have "direct and superior responsibility" for the crimes of those ranked below them, similar to a military chain of command.

What are you saying he's innocent of? That he somehow doesn't know this is happening, or that it didn't happen at all?
