PA Attorney General Says Vatican Knew Of Abuse Cover-Up

/ WDAC

HARRISBURG (AP) – PA Attorney General Josh Shapiro is repeating his accusation that the Vatican was complicit in the cover-up of the sexual abuse of children by Roman Catholic priests. Shapiro’s latest comments came during TV appearances on Tuesday. A state grand jury report found that hundreds of priests in Pennsylvania had molested more than 1,000 children over the past 70 years. Shapiro said at the time that a church cover-up reached to the Vatican. The report revealed no internal Vatican documents and provided scant detail about the Vatican’s role, beyond describing confidential reports that bishops made to the Vatican about abusive priests. Pope Francis last year acknowledged the Catholic Church was slow to realize the damage done and said the decades-long practice of moving pedophiles around rather than sanctioning them was to blame.
