Pope: Sorry about the thousands of rapes
 Well, then, that makes it all OK


Addressing the sex abuse crisis for the first time from the seat of the Roman Catholic Church, 
Benny the Rat begged forgiveness on Friday, saying the church would do “everything possible” 
to prevent priests from abusing children. 

“We, too, insistently beg forgiveness from God and from the persons involved, while promising to do 
everything possible to ensure that such abuse will never occur again,” Benedict told thousands of priests 
and faithful gathered in Saint Peter’s Square for celebrations marking the end of the Vatican’s Year of the Priest. 

The pope’s remarks did not substantively go beyond what he had already said in a letter to Irish Catholics 
in March and in a private meeting with victims of sex abuse on Malta in April, but it was the first time Benny 
had mentioned the crisis from Saint Peter’s Basilica, the heart of the church itself, and on an occasion focused on priests. 

“In this very year of joy for the sacrament of the priesthood, the sins of priests came to light 
— particularly the abuse of the little ones,” the pope said. 

Yeah, that would be the subject the whole world's been talking about for a decade.

Madoff: Sorry I stole your money
 Well, then, that makes it all OK

BP: Sorry we destroyed the Gulf
 Well, then, that makes it all OK

Roethlisberger: Sorry I raped that girl
 Well, then, that makes it all OK

OJ: Sorry I cut Nicole's head off
 Well, then, that makes it all OK

Eldrick: Sorry I had 121 affairs
 Well, then, that makes it all OK

Vitter: Sorry I masturbate into diapers
 Well, then, that makes it all OK

Does saying "Sorry" mean anything?
