← High Court rules Catholic Church liable over priests

Stevehill's Avatar Jump to comment 26 by Stevehill

Let's be clear: the Portsmouth Diocese (which may for all I know be worth two pence) has been held liable for the actions of a priest who reported to its bishop.

That's a million miles from saying the RCC and/or the Vatican is liable.

The RCC seems to have successfully salami-sliced its corporate structure, such that every time you cut off the head of the Hydra, two more appear. And victims, globally, go uncompensated while the bishop in the next diocese orders another pair of Gucci loafers and a Prada briefcase.

No wonder they are losing followers. The miracle is there are any left.
