Great NYT article on Irish Catholic child abuse

Prime Minister Enda Kenny
This is a terrific article with no pulled punches. Ireland is socking it to the popey guy, bigtime. Here are two excerpts:
For the first time, an Irish fact-finding inquiry found the Vatican culpable in promoting the culture of cover-up. 
The Irish are broadly lauding this week's thunderbolt from Prime Minister Enda Kenny, who denounced the Vatican's role in the past 17 years of abuse scandals. He accused the Holy See of downplaying "the rape and torture of children" and hiding behind its status as a sovereign state with its own secrecy-obsessed canon laws.
See? Good stuff. Go read it.
