Also since all of this occurs in secret, aside from a few old men, no one knows exactly what he has been found guilty of…. and when he is sentenced, because all this is secret…no one but a few old men will really know how he is being ‘punished.’
    This is nothing but a dog and pony show to make it look like the Vatican boys are doing something.
