I do not that this is an accurate statement...you seem to think that the leadership of the RCC church should get a free pass. That is well within your right of opinion. I, and many others, happen to disagree.
Did Benedict, prior to being named Pope, have any knowledge about specific instances of child molestation in the church? I think it has been shown that he did. Did Benedict report said abuse to the proper authorities? No. To me, that is a heinous act on Benedict's part. I see no way around it.
I am sorry if that opinion upsets you.
