Whatever, they got into a meeting with evidence and decided to not hold these "people" accountable. There is consistent evidence of the outright refusal of the Catholic Church to report their abusive priests to the proper authorities. In fact the Catholic Church prefers to shift these predators to other places, where they can attack more children. Stop making excuses for the corrupt nature of the Catholic Church. It's pathetic. Since the Bishop of Rome is the head of the Catholic Church...these Popes are responsible.
