Mea Culpa Maxima

The HBO documentary, Mea Culpa Maxima…Silence in the House of God, by Alex Gibney, exposes how the Catholic Church denied, minimized, and blamed others for the brutal abuses that took place at St. John, a school for deaf children, in Milwaukee.  In addition, it details how documentation for every single sex abuse case went directly to the office of  Ratzinger, a.k.a. Pope Benedict, so he has all the data. Speculation about why Pope Benedict resigned, and who will be the next Pope, flood the media as the Papal conclave continues voting in the Sistine Chapel. What is certain is that this Pope will continue to face scandals relating to ongoing sex abuse cases and accusations of money laundering until the Catholic Church atones for centuries of abuse of power. Perhaps its time for Pink Smoke Over the Vatican!
