Finally, Cardinal Law has gotten around to doing what even President Nixon figured out: the office is more important than him or his legacy and it’s time to resign.
Pope John Paul II, in a dramatic recognition of the damage done to the church by Law’s repeated failure to remove abusive priests from ministry, yesterday accepted the resignation of the longtime Roman Catholic archbishop.
And it’s about time. Perhaps now, we can try to do the right thing by the victims and get these corrupt pedophile priests out of circulation!
Also, maybe the Pope will realize that allowing priests to be married, though it won’t solve the problem, will drastically curtain the number of freaks that try to enter the priesthood saturating it instead with people who lead normal lives and want to serve God.
