Pope sincere?

Original post made by Concerned Former Catholic, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Sep 18, 2010

The Pope recently stated:

"I think of the immense suffering caused by the abuse of children, especially within the church and by her ministers," he said. "Above all, I express my deep sorrow to the innocent victims of these unspeakable crimes, along with my hope that the power of Christ's grace, his sacrifice of reconciliation, will bring deep healing and peace to their lives."

""I express my gratitude for the efforts being made to address this problem responsibly, and I ask all of you to show your concern for the victims and solidarity with your priests.""

Earlier, The Pope expressed "shock" over the sexual abuse scandal.

Well, if the Pope is sincere, then how come here in Pleasanton we have priest Greene after what he did?

Because people are showing solidarity with their priests, just like the old man said.
