From blog correspondent Lee Penn
Kicked upstairs?
RC cardinal, leading figure in gay-priest scandal two years ago, given Rome post
LP: Truth is stranger than fiction.

In case you have forgotten about Law's accomplishments, read this book, a summary of The Boston Globe's coverage of the scandal:

Betrayal: The Crisis in the Catholic Church

And for details about what the [RC] hierarchy did about the scandal in the mid-1980s to early 1990s, read this:

Lead Us Not into Temptation: Catholic Priests and the Sexual Abuse of Children

And to see the story about the scandal and the Legionaries of Christ - which is highly favored by the Pope - read this:

Vows of Silence : The Abuse of Power in the Papacy of John Paul II

[Lee has contributed these book links to the blog before.]

The sex-abuse scandal goes right up to the throne of the Pope; his newest action confirms this. [End.]

Bad prudential judgement again?

Lord, in Thy mercy: hear our prayer.
