Taking down the Catholic mafia

In that den of sin, the Archdiocese of Los Angeles (AKA L.A. Child Sex Ring), corrective action has been taken. Hopefully this is the beginning of a process that will result in the jailing of multiple priests.
Cardinal Roger M. Mahony, who retired less than two years ago as the leader of the nation’s largest Roman Catholic archdiocese, was removed from all public duties by his successor, Archbishop José H. Gomez, as the church complied with a court order to release thousands of pages of internal documents that show how the cardinal shielded priests who sexually abused children.  
He's not in jail yet but he soon will be if the authorities do their job. The church also took down his capo, Bishop Curry. I especially liked this bit:
Both Cardinal Mahony and Bishop Curry...have said that they were naïve at the time about the...impact on victims
Could the fact that they were "naive" about the "impact" on children who were raped by priests have something to do with the total absence of moral values in Catholicism? Ya think?

It's good to see one or two priests get sacked and/or jailed. But the number should be in the thousands. And these two should be jailed immediately.
