Sex scandals don't go away: This time the pope is implicated!

More documents have come into view revealing that Cardinal J.Ratzinger failed to defrock an American priest who molested HUNDREDS of deaf boys, despite receiving letters from American bishops pleading for him to act directly on the matter.

The American priest [name witheld] has been reported to molest up to 200 boys and has shown NO REMORESE.

Actually Ratzinger's second in command, Cardinal T. Bertone told bishops to begin a canonical trial to defrock the priest if found guilty, but Ratzinger called it off, after the suspected priest wrote a ltter stating:

'I simply want to live out the time that I have left in the dignity of my priesthood. I ask your kind assistance in this matter.'

What did the RCC do? The RCC moved him from the region but allowed him to continue working in schools and a juvenile detention center, still remaining as a priest until he died in 1998.
