Pope Benedict Tried to Remove Abusive Priests Faster

Well, this is a bit embarrassing for the folks who've tried to show Pope Benedict XVI as a "pedophilia enabler".

The Vatican recently disclosed that then Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger tried to get canon law updated to make sure priests accused of sexual abuse were tried and, if found guilty, removed from their priestly duties quickly.  LifeSiteNews has an article about it.

However, don't expect to hear about it in the New York Times or the Huffington Post.  I doubt they're interested in it.
