I'm Catholic and can tell you Ratzinger is useless. He ordered a cover-up which Pope John even approved. You can google that. The other guy (he is Italian) that should've been Pope was going to clean house of pedophiles so he didn't get it. Lots of bishops, especially in America, should've gone to jail for obstruction of justice and facilitating a criminal organization (cover-up and moving pedophile preists from parish to parish). If the DOJ would've RICO'd just one parish, it would've ended the silence. The Vatican even said they would not send money or save any parishes being sued as well. Ratzinger is a joke.
A guy opens the front door and sees a snail on his doorstep. He picks up the snail and throws it across the street in a neighbor's yard. A year later, the guy opens the front door and the same snail is on his doorstep. The snail says, "What the f*ck was that about?"
