So Did Pope Benedict XVI Cover Up a Priest’s Sex Abuse Or What?

We’re sure the Devil is responsible and all, but this is pretty disturbing. Even for a practicing Catholic. “The [German] archdiocese said that a priest accused of molesting boys was given therapy in 1980 and later allowed to resume pastoral duties, before committing further abuses and being prosecuted. Pope Benedict, who at the time headed the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising, approved the priest’s transfer for therapy. A subordinate took full responsibility for allowing the priest to later resume pastoral work, the archdiocese said in a statement.” [NYT]
