My personal opinion is that the church is just upset that people are not looking the other way anymore but taking these accusations seriously and actually investigating them now.
Several buildings were searched in raids targeting a retired archbishop and the graves of two prelates.
Prosecutors said the action concerned alleged "abuse of minors committed by a certain number of Church figures".
Police in Leuven, central Belgium, on Thursday seized nearly 500 files and a computer from the offices of a Church commission investigating allegations of sex abuse.
They also searched the Church's headquarters and the Brussels archdiocese in Mechelen, north of the Belgian capital.
On Saturday Vatican officials compared the raids and investigation into allegations of child sex abuse with the treatment of the Church under communist rule.

The communist party did and still does try to destroy the Catholic church and also all other christian faiths.
Look what they are doing in this country, and even on CM many young girls cut you down if your a christian, and believe in God.

Maybe I'm dense but I just can't make sense of this statement: "Several buildings were searched in raids targeting a retired archbishop and the graves of two prelates."
How do you target a grave?
