...It doesn't seem like the Catholic Church of the 70s considered any crime heinous enough to give up one of their priests.

Nothing, just about nothing surprises me any longer about religions or gov'ts tainted by religions these days. If there isn't persecution of others for believing/practicing the "wrong" religion or "version" of a religion, there's taking over gov't creating theocracies and/or denying civil rights to people, subjugating and abusing women, minorities, those of a different sexual orientation, or anything else that makes someone "different." Why would covering up evil doers be any less likely?! :O Gov't sanctioned terrorism exists around the world today in totalitarian gov't theocracies, just as it existed as the Inquisition, Salem Witch trials, denigration and destruction of native people's religion and culture. In the U.S. we have the rabid efforts to pass laws to deny civil rights and freedoms to our own citizens. So, why is this a surprise?! Amazing they kept it a secret this long. Sigh... ://

Kind of boggles the mind that an institution which has behaved so poorly can pretend a claim to any kind of moral authority...but I've noticed that church leaders (of any stripe) quite often fail to display the rectitude they demand of their flocks.
