Pope John Paul II covered up child abuse as cardinal in Poland, says report

That’s just how it was done in the Church back then, and probably still would be, if it weren’t for investigative reporting, social media, and a changed social climate in which victims don’t feel as restrained in reporting abuse, and people are willing to listen to them, even to the point where a priest so charged is seen as “guilty until proven innocent”. (And even then, some will murmur and say “yes, but you know he still did it”.)
