Victims protest Vatican’s handling of sexual abuse

People from across the world who have been abused by priests gathered outside the Vatican yesterday to condemn the Catholic Church’s handling of the scandal, its worst crisis in years.

Several hundred protesters – victims of abuse and their families – demonstrated at the home of the powerful church before leading a candle-lit vigil leaving personal messages for the Vatican.

“This isn’t an attack on faith or religion, it’s about behaviour and ethics,” said Marco Lodo Rizzzini, a spokesman for child victims of abuse from Italy’s Antonio Provolo Institute For The Deaf.

Sixty-seven deaf-mute children at the Catholic institute in the city of Verona were allegedly abused by priests and lay staff between the 1950s and 1980s.

Similar claims have emerged from across Europe and the United States, with the church accused of not acting quickly or firmly against priests involved and even covering up the problem.
