Das' statement underscores the lack of response the Catholic Church has given to the victims of clergy sexual assault.

Bernard Law fled Boston hours before the arrival of Massachusetts state troopers were to serve him with subpoenas to testify before a grand jury.
Roger Mahony of California WILL participate in the election of the new Pope despite his being relieved of his duties relating to his participation is sexual abuse cover ups.
This Pope, himself, has made more than a few gaffes. One of his more egregious ones was where he called himself "a son of Germany", he prayed and asked why God was silent when 1.5 million victims, most of them Jews, died there during World War Two."
God wasn't silent, MEN, in particular the cowardly leadership of the Catholic Church were silent.
