  1. This is the best tl;dr I could make, [original](https://apnews.com/d71dbfb06b1065b2e9f910c2581371e2) reduced by 91%. (I’m a bot)

    > From the outset, the late papal envoy who ran the Legion, Cardinal Velasio De Paolis, refused to hold complicit Legion superiors accountable or investigate past abusers.

    > "De Paolis said there would be no witch hunt, explicitly, and the consequence is that abuse and its cover-up have remained unpunished," said the Rev. Christian Borgogno, a former Legion priest who co-founded the "Legioleaks" Facebook group where Salazar first went public in May. Borgogno said De Paolis' decision to leave in place Legion superiors, many of whom were close to Maciel, "Made reform impossible.”

    > Already, the Mexican bishops conference has ended its silence about the Legion to denounce the newly revealed abuse and the Legion's failure to provide "a specific act of justice or reparation for the victims" even after it acknowledged the crimes, vowed more transparency and pointed to its child protection policies in place now.

  2. The Catholic Church is a child raping cult. They should have their tax exemption stripped as well as their status as a religion. They should have their wealth taken and distributed to their victims. Everyone bishop and higher should be imprisoned for the remainder of their natural lives.

  3. The Vatican is complicit.

  4. The pedophile church is corrupt and evil to its core

  5. How come Christianity’s highest ” leaders ” people closest to God are all rapist. What that makes the religion then?
