This is not news - Catholic church goes to the extreme to protect their priests rather than the victims. The church is claiming naivety - oh yeah, under the guidance of the all knowing god, they are still naive. What a lame excuse.
The Victoria Inquiry (in Australia) officially started today. Here is the ABC's news report on the deputy police commissioner Graham Ashton's submission. Channel nine's report is here. Out of the almost 400 reported crimes by the victims, the church has referred NONE to the police. If it is NOT the evidence that the Church is protecting the abusive priests, I do not know what is.
