I think the pressure is now on for the Vatican to stop shielding pedo priests and acknowledge that cover ups are, and have been going on.
The big issue, is that the current Pope, who seems as holy as my vest, sanctioned the cover ups in the past by his edict.
Showing such 'complicity' is a huge blow to all who have been abused by the church.
The church warn us to repent for our sins, and now it is their turn to repent theirs.
The media aspect of ignoring compensation would be massive to the Vatican, one area where they need to be courting the media instead of battling on regardless.
If the Vatican think its wrong, let them sue God.
Men of this high a position should absolve the church by paying a high penalty for their complicity in major sins.
The Archbishop of Canterbury blows them all away with his honest approach to this sort of thing.
Not the best person appointed for the job according to UK Government.
Funny, just how unpopular you can become for speaking the truth
