It is really disgusting to me that someone who covered up the sexual abuse of a priest was still allowed to vote for the new Pope. Why is he allowed to keep his title as cardinal? If the Catholic Church is trying to improve its image, this was a huge fail.
Well, actually, I think he should be turned over to the legal system, prosecuted along with the priest who committed the abuse.
But the Vatican is basically the "law" all by its big ol' self.
True, he really should be in jail! It's amazing to me that there is not more outrage concerning these abuse cases.
