Seems problems for the Catholic Church keep arising. It is almost if there is a war on children,
what Pope Francis calls an “authentic plague” on children of the world.
In this allegation the regional Church authorities denied the existence of child labour. What I find most perplexing is the Vatican response:
So we called the Vatican instead and put our evidence to the Pope’s spokesman, Federico Lombardi.
“I deny to have responsibility and duty to answer about this – if there is problem for the local church, I am not responsible for that”, he told us.
Shouldn’t the response be something along the lines of “this would be unacceptable if true and I shall investigate”?
