So what's your assessment of Ratzinger after watching it? Would you seriously have wanted him to continue in the role of the pope after viewing this? I know your focus is going to be on the church and its needs as shown by your responses to the film.
I choose to focus more on the victims and I'm afraid I'm unwilling to have any compassion for a man that is literally 1,000 times worse than Joe Paterno. What was done was disgusting and vile. Both by a organization riddled with pedophiles and those that covered it up.
I truly hope someday you can shed your blinders and see this for what it is. For 500 years the church has been saying "we're not like that now we've changed. " But have they? I don't think so, I think its a corrupt little fiefdom, largely supported by brainwashed laypeople. The catholic church has had 2000 years to refine it's brainwashing, find key mental leverage points, develop rules and a hierarchy system that protects itself and its perks above all else.
