IL - Victims offer to help with papal candidate vetting

In a new interview with the Chicago Tribune, Cardinal George says that Cardinals are ‘vetting’ one another on abuse and cover up. If he is correct about this – and we hope he is – we are encouraged. But such vetting should go beyond just likely papal candidates. It should be vigorously expanded to include all church officials.

ITALY - Explaining the "Dirty Dozen" list

First, we want to urge Catholic prelates to stop pretending that the worst is over regarding the clergy sex abuse and cover up crisis. Tragically, the worst is almost certainly ahead. This scandal, we believe, has yet to surface in most nations. It’s shameless spin and deliberate deception to claim otherwise.

Only vigilance protects the vulnerable.)

We are disappointed that Cardinal Angelo Sodano is leading prayer todmorrow. Given how integral he has been to the cover-up of crimes against children, especially those of Fr. Marcial Maciel Degollado, we feel that he should step aside and let another prelate take his place.

ITALY - Secret dossier should be made public, SNAP says

We believe that the Cardinals should not just be briefed on this dossier, but should get to read the entire thing. We also believe that the dossier should be made public. Transparency is always the best policy.
