On June 17, Pope Benedict XVI told Irish Catholics that it is a "mystery" to him why priests and other church officials have been abusing children entrusted to their care for at least the past several decades. Though I am not a Catholic, a clergyman, a child abuser or a victim of one, I may be able to help clear up the mystery.
