Court lets Vatican-sex abuse lawsuit move forward

It's nice to see that some people are actually taking this seriously:

'A lawsuit against the Vatican that had been dismissed as a publicity stunt moved forward when the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal from the Holy See.'

It certainly sounds to me like the Vatican knew what was going on with the particular abuse in question, as they simply moved the abuser around, from Armagh in Ireland to Chicago and then on again to Portland, each move precipitated by reports of abuse.

Hopefully this case will get to go the whole hog, even if the man who committed the crime is dead, the Vatican needs to stand up and admit it was in the wrong to simply move this man around so he could continue to abuse children.
