He said that there is a Cardinal (American, I believe) who is known to have raped boys and people around him in the church were begging the Pope to defrock him, but he wouldn't do it. He further said that he thinks that might be part of why the Pope is exiting the stage.
A poster on another forum who has defended the Catholic Church in every possible way as the sexual abuse scandal unfolded, "it's only happening in the culture of decadence in America, etc.", and finally had to condemn the coverup practices as they became known, said this week that he hoped there was not another shoe to drop.
Which made me wonder if something wasn't even worse out there that was about to become public. If the filmmaker was Gibney of "Mea Maxima Culpa, Silence in the House of God", he seems to have great sources.
