A Church spokesman responded: “Weltbild tries to prevent the distribution of possibly pornographic content.”
Well, it's prevention efforts have apparently not been so successful. For more than 10 years, a group of committed Catholics has been trying to point out what is going on to Church authorities, and they are outraged at the hypocrisy of the spokesman's statement. In 2008, the group sent a 70-page document to all the bishops whose dioceses have shared ownership of Weltbild for 30 years, detailing evidence of the sale of questionable material.
Now doesn't this look just like the priest-abuse scandal??
- the RCC hiding dodgy or illegal or immoral activities for some purpose - turning a blind eye to its own hypocrisy until it is forced kicking and screaming to admit it.
What's the bet the next thing will be some sort of mock apology, abjurations of sorrowful guilt and a promise to do better??
