Just two days ago we had 2013 Feb 22 Sex and the Vatican and there three cardinals were mentioned who are due to participate in the conclave in Rome next months and who allegedly failed to stop sexual abusive priests or helped cover up hundreds of abuse cases or are accused of failing to do enough to tackle abusive priests.

And now today I read about a cardinal who is accused of inappropriate acts himself.

Here some excerpts:

 

Britain's most senior Catholic 'should be allowed to vote on next Pope' despite allegations of inappropriate acts

Britain痴 most senior Roman Catholic cleric should be allowed to vote on the next Pope despite facing allegations of 'inappropriate' acts involving four men, the former archbishop of Westminster has said.

Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor said he was saddened by the allegations made against Cardinal Keith O達rien, the only figure based in mainland Britain with a vote on the next Pope.

Cardinal O達rien is said to be 田ontesting the claims which involve three priests and a former cleric.

The allegations have been passed to the Vatican through its representative in the UK, the Papal Nuncio, Archbishop Antonio Mennini.

The accusers, who have not been named, are calling for the Cardinal痴 resignation and said to be anxious to prevent him attending the Conclave in Rome next month.

Cardinal O'Brien is the latest in a series of Cardinals facing calls to stand aside from the Conclave because of different allegations.

the four men wrote to the Nuncio just before the Pope痴 resignation earlier this month outlining their claims which go back more than 30 years.

One priest reportedly alleges that he received unwanted attention from the cardinal after a late-night drinking session.

Another, who has since left the priesthood, claims that the cleric made 妬nappropriate contact after evening prayers while he was a young seminarian.

Another claims that he was receiving counselling from the future Cardinal as a young priest when he allegedly used night prayers as a cover.

One of the men is reported to have said: "It (the church) tends to cover up and protect the system at all costs."
