They had a moral obligation to report a crime, and they failed to do so, period. That is how I see it. Just because someone is ordained does not make them immune to the laws of the land. At the end of the day, the intent of the Bishops is irrelevant. It is common sense that you should not put a known child molester in a position where he is alone with young boys...and yet this happened again and again.

When Pope Benedict face the Lord Almighty in the afterlife, that is going to be the question asked of him...why...why did you not protect the children?

I have kids, so I will admit that my judgement is skewed in this regard.

As to the bolded part of your statement...if those priests were evil, and the Bishops knew they were evil (since you acknowledge them as evil, it is not a stretch to believe that a Bishop would know evil when he saw it), then why were evil priests allowed to continue to minister to the flock? Shouldn't the flock be protected from evil?
Your judgment appears to be skewed, but it's not because you have kids.
