The #pope and the #catholic #church devoted four days in February of 2019 to address the decades long problem of #priests sexually abusing children. It had to be a pretty packed four days to cover such deeply hidden criminally negligent “known unknowns”. That conference – and it’s hard to use the word conference for a criminal cover up, but hey, the pope gets to name his ass covering whatever he wants to name it – was publicly intended to mend wounds and “hear the cry of the little ones asking for justice.” As I learn more about the corrupt catholic
