Pope Benedict has commented further on the scandals surrounding the Church.

“Today we see in a truly terrifying way that the greatest persecution of the Church does not come from outside enemies but is born of sins within the Church,” Pope Benedict said in answer to a question on the abuse scandal. He said the Church must seek forgiveness from victims of sexual abuse, but also recognise that “forgiveness cannot be a substitute for justice”.

Were you raised Catholic, johnny? Usually only people like me who were subjected to the horrible Catholic gauntlet find it really fun to be anti-Catholic.

sighthound: would you care to elaborate on your experiences therein or not?

Yes I was raised as a Catholic Geraldine but rather than poking fun at the Church in this thread, I've been pointing out that others try to use the excuse of valid criticism of genuine issues to disguise their bigotry towards Catholics.

If the Pontiff makes comments like this when he visits Britain in September he would be liable for arrest for 'a hate crime'.
