Church Abuse Scandal Reaches Pope Benedict XVI

Hosted by

Revelations of pedophilia by priests and cover-ups by Roman Catholic authorities began in the US in 1985. Since then, they've spread worldwide, and this week questions have been raised about the actions of Pope Benedict XVI when he was Archbishop of Munich.  The latest reports in Europe are from Italy, where three men say they were abused as boys at a Catholic school for the deaf.
