Archdiocese Ordered To Reveal Names Of Hierarchy Involved In Sex Abuse Scandal « CBS Los Angeles

snippet of the article:
A first round of 14 priest files made public in Los Angeles nearly two weeks ago showed that Mahony and other top officials maneuvered behind the scenes to shield molester priests, provide damage control for the church and keep parishioners in the dark about sexual abuse in their parishes. Those documents, released as part of an unrelated civil lawsuit, were not redacted and provided a glimpse of what could be contained in the larger release.
The files, some of them dating back decades, contain letters among top church officials, accused priests and archdiocese attorneys, complaints from parents, medical and psychological records and — in some cases — correspondence with the Vatican.


Roman Catholic Church sex abuse scandal - Definition

In the late 20th century, and especially at the turn of the 21st, the Catholic Church in several countries was confronted with a series of allegations concerning sexual abuse of children under the legal age of consent ¹ by Catholic clergy, the overwhelming majority of whom are priests.
The controversy was at its most famous when it hit the United States in the late 1990s and early 2000s. However, several countries, including Canada, had already faced similar controversies with high-profile cases such as the Mount Cashel Orphanage scandal in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Duplessis Orphans in the province of Quebec.
Well-publicized charges that some members of the Church in certain instances deliberately covered up such crimes have fueled criticism of the institution and its leadership. While not every allegation stood up to scrutiny, some did, resulting in apologies and restitution by the Church and the criminal prosecution of those who engaged in the acts. It should be noted that it has always been the clear teaching of the Church that sexual abuse of children is mortally sinful.

How brainwashed do you have to be to believe this is the Church that Jesus built?  This is "Mystery Babylon" the Great Whore of Revelations!  Do your own research, and research the Bible.  If the Bibleand the Roman Catholic Church are at odds ( and they know they are) then get out and find a church teachng Biblical Christianity!
