Holy Fuck: 'John Paul II failed to root out sex abuse in the Catholic Church' [PressTV]

Tens of thousands of people in the Vatican witnessed the canonization of the two popes. John the twenty-third reigned from 19-58 to 19-63. He set up the modernizing Second Vatican Council. John Paul the second reigned for nearly 27 years. This is the first-ever canonization of two pontiffs. While both popes were widely revered, there's been criticism that John Paul the second, who died nine years ago, has been canonized too quickly. Groups representing victims of sexual abuse by Catholic priests say he didn't do enough to root out a scandal that emerged at the end of his pontificate. The scandal has hung over the Catholic Church ever since.
