The whole, entire institution is responsible for creating the atmosphere and rigidity that allowed it to happen and persist. The internal regulations were obstacles. They had in mind the preservation of the Church, not the best interests of the child. That's what's to blame. Not JPII and B16. JPII deserves criticism for his lack of response to the abuse, but he cannot be the scapegoat for the problem.
