From Apollo 13:-

And that is how we do that

Pope Francis to journalists: «Child abuse by priests is a betrayal of the body of the Lord, it is like doing a Satanic Mass»

These were the words spoken by Pope Francis to journalists who asked him questions on child abuse by priests during the return flight from the Holy Land. The Holy Father added that all priests who have similar charges will be treated equally with no favoritism.

Franky suspended bishop Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst of Limburg because he was spending too much money on his residence and other church buildings. Pope Francis acted swiftly, apparently sending a clear message that he is serious about the principles of humility and modesty.

Yet Bishop Finn of Kansas remains in office and without disciplinary measures after being found guilty of failure to report suspected child abuse in 2012.

When something does not seem right or ring true, I find that the old adage, "Follow the money!" leads me closer to an understanding.

I think Pope Francis has more work to do if he is to show that he is serious about cracking down on perverts in the church and those who turn a blind eye to molestations by priests.

Memorable sci-fi quote:-

John Henry: The human brain is an amazing computer. Its raw clock speed is twenty billion calculations per second. Its storage is functionally infinite. But it's flawed.
James Ellison: How's that?
