Mea Mega Culpa, HBO Documentary on Catholic Church pedo scandal


Anyone catch this on Monday? Pretty disgusting story about abuse in a Wisconsin deaf school and a couple other scandalous instances. Even more disgusting was when they showed the degree of coverup at the Vatican's highest levels, which is a black stain on the papacy of JP2.

They delved into the Irish Church scandal too, so no doubt TNBhoy can chime in about how sinful these filmmakers are for covering such a topic and how they got all the facts wrong.

Was going to watch this last night, but got sidetracked.

Worth a watch?

I thought so, but it didn't exactly reveal anything anyone who has been paying attention didn't already know. It was a bit shocking at the evidence that the Vatican knew what they knew and when they knew it.

There is no way that the church didn't know in detail what was going on decades ago.

They had interviews with former Benedictine monks whose job it was to be a "fixer" and go into parishes where an abusive priest was recently removed, play like he was the pastoral replacement to the congregation, and effect settlements and confidentiality agreements from the abused and their families. Once the job was done, he would go to the next parish that needed a "fixer" and rinse and repeat. Shrewd business on the Church's part, but you just would expect more than naked self-preservation from an institution that claims to be the sole representation of the one true divinity on the whole planet.
