Well spotted Rick. Reminds me of:

The Catholic church's mishandling of pedophile scandals among its clergy has been going on for hundreds of years, a new book reveals.
http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2004/04/16/1082055655959.html

"Some bishops have been heavily criticized for moving offending priests from parish to parish rather than seeking to have them stripped of their faculties."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_Catholic_sex_abuse_cases[/url]

By the way, what is being "stripped of one's faculties?" Sounds painful. And so it should be!

I watched this Google video yesterday which brings the allegations right up to the present, implicating the current pope in the on-going cover-up, no less.

BTW, maybe that "Beyond Belief" conference helped Sam. At the conference he seemed to be quite heavy handed against Muslims and comparitively noncritical of the Christian.
