Once more it seems the Catholic Church is protecting pedophiles. In a news report this week it is revealed that financial aid is being given to convicted child rapists.
The archdiocese has disclosed to The Age that it is providing significant financial support to four clergy released from jail after serving sentences for child sex abuse.
Victim support groups say more clergy found either by police or internal church investigations to have abused children are likely to be receiving financial support from different Catholic orders outside the Melbourne archdiocese’s control. –The Age
So the Catholic Church is providing financial assistance to paedophiles; why am I not surprised by this?
