I was age five when the bishop stood over me and said, "Stop babbling about what the priest did to you." Then, forty years later... I started babbling.

Pope Responsible for Girl Molested in Truckee, CA, in 1995

In 2004, Stephen Kiesle pleaded no contest to a felony for molesting a young girl in his Truckee, California, home in 1995 and was sentenced to six years in state prison.

Last week the AP published a letter from 1985 signed by the future Pope showing that as Cardinal Joe Ratzinger, he did not want to defrock Father Stephen Kiesle. It had only taken four years for the future Pope to arrive at that decision.

So like it or not, the Pope Benedict XVI is responsible for the 1995 rapes that finally landed Father Steve in prison in 2004.

If the Catholic Church handled its problem priests like a sane institution, these sick men would never have been turned loose on society, defrocked and unmonitored.

The Servants of the Paracletes had it correct in the 1950s. Put sexual predator priests on an island isolated from society.

Put them to work making license plates.
