And now, Belgium

A longtime Catholic leader apologized for abusing a boy years ago. (Washington Post)
This seems, more and more, like a generations-long Ponzi scheme - "We won't tell what you did if we recruit younger clergy who won't tell what we did, and a mammoth congregation of suckers who will believe us because (this is the GREAT part) we teach them that they HAVE to believe us!"
I love that last part. The guys in the convocations must have howled with laughter as they pictured all the sheep believing whatever they were told they HAD to believe.
