And like I said, as an outsider looking in, this looks bad for the church considering all the crushing accusations that have come down over the last decade. Maybe it's nothing, I don't know. I'm sure this isn't the first scandal to ever have rocked the organization.
No, I don't think the Pope should have term limits, but I do think it's good to hand over the Papacy when the time comes. I do think that it would perhaps been better if PJII had done so.

I don't think this retirement is a scandal, and it's not related to the sexual abuse crisis.
