Another entry to add to the list

of things that are wrong with the world: Pope Benedict XVI.

Pretty damning story is coming from the AP (here). The short version. Catholic Church says that Ratzinger didn't play any role in blocking the removal of pedophile priests but the latest evidence suggests that he was involved in resisting efforts to have a priest removed and cited, "the good of the universal church" as a reason to be concerned about efforts to have a priest removed. Of course, there will be some quibbling and haggling about words like "resist", "obstruct", and "block", but if it takes six years for an accused priest to be removed, you can only push the intend/foresee distinction so far without breaking it.
