More and more and more

What’s left to say?

The Vatican is annoyed that the authorities, while investigating crimes, investigated crimes.

How is it news that the Vatican is angry? It’s never news that, say, some drug lord is angry at being exposed or having assets searched for evidence of known crimes, but the Vatican gets to express indignation and have it faithfully reported by the guffawing press.

If the Vatican cared about child abuse (let me be clear, about preventing it rather than encouraging it) then it would welcome investigations, providing they were legal.  What do they have to complain about?  Zero tolerance? For what, exactly?  For beanspillers. For people trying to do the right thing.  For people trying to protect the innocent.
