Jesuit's Premier Educational Institution To Hold Important Symposium

Monsignor Charles Scicluna
The Vatican said Saturday it is working to give bishops information on the best ways to combat clergy sex abuse, teaming up with the Jesuit university in Rome to host a major symposium on abuse and launch an Internet learning center for follow-up guidance. The Vatican's sex crimes prosecutor Monsignor Charles Scicluna told Vatican Radio the symposium is intended to send a very strong signal of determination, born of the Pope's own determination to look the sin and crime of pedophilia in the face, while at the same time affirming that we must be able to give a clear, credible, firm and effective response to this problem within the Church.. The symposium next February will draw experts in psychiatry, church law, sociology and child protection programs to the Pontifical Gregorian University for three days of meetings and workshops with 200 bishops and religious superiors.

This is a joke, right? How about starting with the expulsion of all the boy boinkers and "homosexual advocates" from the "Society of Jesus". No conference necessary.

This IS indeed a joke as long as Pedophile Pecklers is still at the Gregorian.
