One Italian priest claimed that 98% of all Vatican priests are gay
Sadly, the most significant but disappointing legacy of Pope John Paul II was his decision to play down the priest sexual rape of children, particularly little boys.
He initially "blamed American culture" (even though children were being raped worldwide by priests) and didn’t treat it as a big deal.
But particularly bad is that he thought to “rescue” Boston's Cardinal Law from hostile critics and American justice for hiding pedophiles by letting Law skulk to Vatican City.
By doing so, John Paul II rewarded or at least shrugged off Law’s disgusting pattern of transferring sexually abusive priests to other parishes, where of course they simply corralled more children and adolescent boys to engage in sexually deviant practices, ruining hundreds of lives.
Pope John Paul II gave him a famous church in Rome to head and allowed him to continue serving as an active cardinal with important, newsworthy, media-covered roles at the Vatican.
