Victims of sexual abuse by Catholic priests have accused the pope, the Vatican secretary of state and two other high-ranking Holy See officials of crimes against humanity, in a formal complaint to the international criminal court (ICC).
The submission, lodged at The Hague on Tuesday, accuses the four men not only of failing to prevent or punish perpetrators of rape and sexual violence but also of engaging in the "systematic and widespread" practice of concealing sexual crimes around the world.

Ok, so they were cited by this report.
Hogwash. The day these people are taken out of the vatican in handcuffs, then we can celebrate. Absolutely nothing will come of this!

Woohoo. The church is finally crumbling. The bible even mentions this, and I'm not religious.

We should prosecute all religious people for their crimes against humanity, hey you may not be a high up priest, but if you support a religion, i'm going to charge you for aiding and abetting, crimes against humanity.
