Vatican letter revealed, proving Church conspired to conceal sex abuse

A newly revealed 1997 letter from the Vatican warned Ireland's Catholic bishops not to report all suspected child-abuse cases to police — a disclosure with the potential to fuel more lawsuits worldwide against the Vatican, which has long denied any involvement in coverups.

The letter, obtained by Irish broadcasters RTE and provided to The Associated Press, documents the Vatican's rejection of an Irish church initiative to begin helping police identify pedophile priests.

The letter's message undermines persistent Vatican claims that the church never instructed bishops to withhold evidence or suspicion of crimes from police.

  • What amazing two-facedness the Church is exhibiting. To say that you'll co-operate with authorities out of one corner of your mouth, then collude to hide crimes with the other.

    Why do we let this organization dictate morality when they themselves are immoral? These are the assholes who told Africa to stop using condoms during an AIDS epidemic, because it's better to die of horrible diseases than displease the holy authority! These are the assholes who gave Hitler blessings!
