[ July 07, 2014]:

Pope Francis held his first meeting with victims of clerical sex abuse on Monday, pledging to carry forward the fight against the scandals that have rocked Catholicism for more than a decade.

“I commit myself not to tolerate harm done to a minor by any individual, whether a cleric or not,” the pontiff said.

Francis also pledged that any bishop who fails in his responsibility to protect minors “will be held accountable.”

Today it became obvious that Francis was just spouting bullshit:

The Roman Catholic archbishop of St. Paul and Minneapolis says he won’t resign despite criticism over the archdiocese’s handling of sexual abuse claims involving priests.

Archbishop John Nienstedt made his comments in in a column that will appear in Thursday’s archdiocese newspaper, The Catholic Spirit. He says he’s bound to stay in office as long as Pope Francis wants.
