Assume you’re the district manager for Chuck E. Cheese. One of your managers has pleaded no contest to lewd conduct for tying up and molesting two boys. You give that manager a leave of absence, then transfer him to a different Chuck E. Cheese even after he’s asked to be relieved of his duties. His fellow managers come to you with their concerns, and you still refuse to act.
You would go to jail. Or at least you should. And yet the pope plays the victim. These are not the actions of a holy man.
