Another Answer

On the positive side, he issued apologies for:

  • The legal process on Galileo Galilei, around 1633 (31 October 1992).
  • Catholics' involvement with the African slave trade (9 August 1993).
  • The Church Hierarchy's role in burnings at the stake and the religious wars that followed the Protestant Reformation (May 1995).
  • The injustices committed against women, the violation of women's rights and the historical denigration of women (10 July 1995, in a letter to "every woman").
  • The inactivity and silence of many Catholics during the Holocaust ( (16 March 1998).
  • Catholic sex abuse cases (20 November 2001), email from a laptop in the Vatican
  • The Church-backed "Stolen Generations" of Aboriginal children in Australia
  • The behaviour of Catholic missionaries in China in colonial times.

And on the negative side, he has been criticised for:

  • not recognising the full severity of the sex abuse cases until they erupted in America in 2002.
  • hindering the investigation into the charges of sexual immorality levelled against Father Marcial Maciel Degollado.
  • allowing diocesan bishops to transfer pedophile priests from one parish to another instead of reporting their crimes to the authorities.
  • hindering Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (the future Pope Benedict XVI) who allegedly was attempting to prevent sex abuse.
  • providing safe haven for several of the most egregiously negligent prelates, such as Cardinal Bernard Law, who had been forced to testify before a grand jury concerning his gross negligence in failing to address rampant homosexual predation of young boys by priests in the Archdiocese of Boston.
