A moving and important address

The Prime Minister (er, Taoiseach, and no, I cannot pronounce this) of Ireland, Enda Kenny, addresses the Parliament on the issue of sexual abuse by officials of the Catholic Church, and the continued efforts of the church to hide these crimes. It's brilliant and very moving. I'm especially impressed how he responds to Ratzinger's statement that the Catholic Church must be above the law in these matters (starts at 11:18).

The continuous coverup and protection of serial child molesters appears to go to the highest levels of the church. This organization ought to be subject to criminal investigations.
