I don't believe this will "rock" the RCC. There are people who believe the RCC is changing since they're "admitting" their culpability in the abuse of children. They're are saying this is sign of "humility".

 

Well, where was this "humility" before the scandal became public knowledge? The fact is, this is not an admission of guilt -- its that the evidence is against them is so ungodly obvious, that its virtually impossible NOT to just come out and own it.

Is a cardinal convicted of this removed from his position? Does he lose his ability to serve in a priestly function?

Where he's going they won't need him as a priest, getting up to 50 years, in other words life in prison! He's gonna serve alright!

On npr today they said something to the effect that a church hearing will have to take place and if they deem it appropriate he would lose his priestly privileges.

It won't make much change to the way things stand in the Church. What it will do is embolden the victims. Pell is the Number Three Man in the Vatican. If they can get him, they can get the Number Four Man. And the Number Five. And the Number Six. 

 

All those survivors who think the one who attacked them is 'too big' to bring down just got some fair-compelling evidence that it's worth speaking up.

I bet the majority of them are up to it. My mom knows someone locally who doesn't like religion but perhaps would have been open, due to the fact that a priest and all the female nuns sexually abused him as a child in the church.

Do you think that this guy, because of his contacts, has the ability to somehow make his punishment less harsh?
