In yet another effort at reading tealeaves, a newspaper in Australia claimed that Pope Benedict “may” have stepped down because of the sex abuse scandals that have engulfed the Catholic Church for decades.
Without any actual proof, the Herald Sun of Melbourne has decided on the word of one Priest that “one of the reasons” the Pope announced his pending resignation as leader of his Church is because of the “widespread sexual abuse within the Catholic Church” that has beset the Church.
Father Max Vodola imagines that Pope Benedict might be feeling taxed by addressing the sex scandals he has confronted since becoming Pope.
