Does anyone have a link that talks about this?
If you have the link that says the pope covered up molestation that would also be great. The only link I can find is where the pope allowed a priest to stay in a place while he got help.

He only apologized because he was granted immunity. IMO he knows more than what he is admitting and should not have been granted anything. I think the hierarchy of the Catholic leadership needs to overhauled. The Pope should have someone over him to be held accountable and no I don't mean God.

Here's a news article about it: "In an unusual Vatican document, Pope Benedict has issued a heartfelt personal apology to the people of Ireland and to thousands of victims of sexual abuse in past decades by Roman Catholic priests there."...."You have suffered grievously and I am truly sorry," Pope Benedict wrote."

Granted immunity by who and why? The pope is not just the leader of the Catholic Church, he's also the leader of Vatican City - a soverign city-state. Vatican has it's own laws and diplomatic ties to countries - it's not that some other country could come in and arrest the pope any more than the US could go in and arrest the Prime Minister of Canada. The pope apologized because he was sorry.
