    The Church does make some payment to its victims, but the payments are well below what would be made by the Court. And the Church can make these reduced payments without having to sell of its vast fortune in property.

    However if you believe the Church doesn't employ priests, you will believe anything.
    So what is really important is that the sexual abuse of children can be used as a pretext for prompting sales from the RCC's property portfolio?

    I fail to see how that will really provide satisfaction to victims of clerical sexual abuse or, more importantly, prevent it occuring again in future but I think its good that you've been able to clarify this point, you do know Mole that should you succeed in bankrupting the institution, the community of believers would remain and their beliefs?

    Read much on the mass rocks or hedge schools lately? There's been not a few examples from history of attempts to annihilate roman catholicism and roman catholicism before now, they all failed.

    The church leadership needs to be reminded of this. I think it is something that Pope Francis understands.

    I still don't understand why all these pedophile priests weren't simply reported to the police like any other child molester.

    There are folks out there who believe D&D is devil worship. Some people will believe anything.

    And as we start to listen to our feelings as children, a whole new world opens up. A good place to start is "For Your Own Good" by Alice Miller.

    Do read the Report of the Royal Commission below to find out why.

    At most, that would provide an explanation for Australia. Unfortunately the problem is not confined there.

    If you also read the nine year National Irish Judicial Enquiry into Child Abuse plus State Enquiries you might get an international picture.

    The Royal Commission reached out right across the globe and arrested the Treasurer of the Roman Catholic Church and brought him back to the Victorian Criminal Court, where he stands charged with multiple sex abuse against children.
