    Pope Blames Child Abuse Scandal on Society

    Pope Benedict XVI told Vatican officials Monday that they must reflect on the church's culpability in its child sex-abuse scandal, but he also blamed a secular society in which he said the mistreatment of children was frighteningly common.

    In his traditional, end-of-the-year speech to Vatican cardinals and bishops, Benedict said revelations of abuse in 2010 reached "an unimaginable dimension" that required the church to accept the "humiliation" as a call for renewal.

    "We must ask ourselves what was wrong in our proclamation, in our whole way of living the Christian life, to allow such a thing to happen," the pope said.

    Nothing the Pope says means anything to me but sure, go ahead and put the blame on others too. Makes sense

    Nothing quite as immature as blaming everyone but yourself...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...
