Lesson of the Church

Will the retirement of the Pope finally open up to the truth of the crimes happening inside the Vatican and its church network world wide. The secrets held inside, specific on child molestation that has occur for years. How many victims are there out there, from victims in the past and even today?  Why hasn't the church resolve this issue? Most likely because the gatekeeper of these crimes is the Pope himself.  Is this part of the reason why the Pope Benedict XVI is retiring now.
The Passionate Eye has an interesting episode on the issue.

Say what you want about President Obama’s political calculations – while polls show a plurality of U.S. voters now support gay marriage, a sign of enormous social change, it is hard to believe most of those supporters will base their vote next fall on the President’s declaration. Those who abhor the notion of gay marriage may be more likely to get out and vote to try to stop it. It is not often that a presumptive favourite takes a bold risk right up front.The effect of President Obama’s support will be felt around the world. Europe is far from united on this issue, and there are still many parts of the world in which it is not safe to be gay. Read More
