Church Sex Abuses- Vatican Sued

Victims of sex abuse may sue Vatican
Mounting Anger Plunges Papacy Into Major Crisis –Tony Allen-Mills

New revelations about Pope Benedict XVIs alleged role in covering up accusations of sexual abuse by Catholic clergy have exposed the Vatican to the risk of lawsuits brought by victims around the world.Mounting anger at the Catholic Churchs failure to act on predatory priests in the US,Europe and Mexico has plunged the papacy into an institutional crisis described by an American Catholic newspaper last week as the largest in centuries.
On Saturday,the Vatican denounced the aggressive persistence of critics who were attempting to involve the Holy Father personally in the matter of abuse.A spokesman told Vatican Radio that the Popes record was above discussion.
Yet the talk in Catholic circles was of little else as the Popes former life as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger,archbishop of Munich and senior Vatican administrator,came under intensifying scrutiny.
Last week it was alleged that,as head of the Vatican office monitoring priestly misconduct,Ratzinger failed to punish Father Lawrence Murphy,who abused up to 200 boys at a Wisconsin school for the deaf.Instead of being defrocked or reported to police,Murphy remained a priest until his death in 1998.We are talking about a man who,before he became Pope,knew what Murphy was doing and did nothing about it, said Donald Marshall,a mechanic who claims Murphy assaulted him in 1977 when he was 13.The Pope is a fraud and a hypocrite.
The reports coincided with a burgeoning German row over Father Peter Hullermann,a Bavarian priest who received therapy for paedophilia in Ratzingers diocese and was transferred to a new parish,where he continued molesting boys.SUNDAY TIMES,LONDON
