French cardinal: don't blame Church alone for sex abuse
Cardinal Andre Vingt-Trois of Paris has insisted that sexual abuse of children is not a problem confined to the Church.
Decrying the “fascination” with abuse by Catholic clerics, the French cardinal said that this approach “is an easy way of ridding us of the issue of pedophilia: by putting it on the Church.” That approach, however, “prevents asking the question within society itself,” he said.
