1985 letter: Pope Benedict resisted pleas to defrock pedophile priest
#10
Quote: The correspondence, obtained by The Associated Press, is the strongest challenge yet to the Vatican's insistence that Benedict played no role in blocking the removal of pedophile priests during his years as head of the Catholic Church's doctrinal watchdog office."
I believe the priest at this time was 90 years old and sick.  He died the next year.  I hope he repented for his sick homosexual molestation and sodomy of deaf boys.

The article is a hit job.  The priest was suspended.  Laicizing him would do nothing.  The person at fault was the local ordinary.  Perhaps stripping him of his bishopric would have done some good.
