  1. I wonder if Pope Benedict even cares that NH Auxiliary Francis J. Christian's conduct led to perjury accusations against the Diocese of Manchester. Christian told a court that a convicted rapist's sexual problems were unknown to the Diocese, even though Christian personally knew of criminal solicitation years prior.

    Learn about the truth the NH Attorney General exposed, compared to Christian and McCormack's statements to the contrary: http://votf.org/Survivor_Support/truth_list.html

    Bernard Law gets a big party for his 80th birthday, and two criminally negligent bishops by any reasonable standard get received in Vatican splendor on the same day.

    What is it the Vatican hierarchy doesn't understand?
