I’m sorry to bring up a painful chapter in the Church’s history, however I was neither a practicing Catholic when much of the news of abuse broke, nor am I from a really devoutly Catholic family.
So, I’m kind of in the dark. I live in the Bible belt, so fundamentalists rarely miss an oppertunity to bring it up, however I never really knew what happened.
Was it a cover up? What was the deal with Pope John Paul II and Cardinal Law etc.
Like I said, I’m not trying to cause trouble, however I’m really concerned.
How much did Pope John Paul II know?
