Hitchens V. Pope
"In 2001, Pope John Paul II placed this department in charge of the investigation of child rape and torture by Catholic priests. In May of that year, Ratzinger issued a confidential letter to every bishop. In it, he reminded them of the extreme gravity of a certain crime. But that crime was the
of the rape and torture. The accusations, intoned Ratzinger, were only treatable within the church's own exclusive jurisdiction."
