So, a holy crap, really?! moment:
Speaking to Italy’s La Repubblica daily, Francis also condemned child sex abuse as a “leprosy” in the Church and cited his aides as saying that “the level of paedophilia in the Church is at two percent”.
“That two percent includes priests and even bishops and cardinals,” he said.
Ok, any further words of assurance Francis?
“There definitely is a problem but it is not a major one…”
Meanwhile, in conveniently timed news of the “the Reformation isn’t over yet” nature:
The Church of England voted on Monday to allow women to become bishops, a historic decision which overturns centuries of tradition in a Church that has been deeply divided over the issue.
