Pope disappoints Irish sexual abuse survivors


This video from Ireland is called RTE News 15-03-2010 Sean Brady called to resign.

From MSNBC today:

However, an Irish group representing survivors of abuse expressed dismay at the pope’s remarks.

“My first response was deep disappointment in the letter. We feel the letter falls far short of addressing the concerns of the victims,” Maeve Lewis, executive director of victims group One in Four, told Reuters.

“There is nothing in this letter to suggest that any new vision of leadership in the Catholic church exists,” Lewis added.

She said the pontiff had focused too narrowly on lower-ranked Irish priests without recognizing the responsibility of the Vatican.

The letter also did not call for the resignation of the head of the church in Ireland, Cardinal Sean Brady, which victims groups have demanded, Lewis added.
