Pope Francis said Friday he took personal responsibility for the “evil” of priests who raped and molested children, asking forgiveness from victims and saying the church must be even bolder in its efforts to protect the young. It was the first time a pope has taken personal responsibility for the sex crimes of his priests and begged forgiveness.
So are you personally going to serve all those multi-year sentences the perps should have gotten, or are you going to send them to the authorities now?
No? Pretty empty gesture then.
