Pope Benedict XVI’s Resignation and Possible Prosecution for Abetting Child Rape and Obstruction of Justice

Pope Benedict
Pope Benedict XVI made history today by becoming the first pope to resign in almost 600 years. Ratzinger gave “advanced age” as the reason that he will resign effective February 28th.

What I am curious about is whether anyone will pursue a legal case against Ratzinger for obstructing justice and abetting child rape. Once he is no longer head of state, he loses his immunity and can be tried for crimes related to the orders that he gave bishops to keep sexual abuse allegations against clerics secret from the police for at least 10 years after the alleged victim turned 18.

In a letter, Ratzinger threatened excommunication for anyone who reported sexual abuse allegations to the proper authorities. The amazing thing about that letter was that nothing was said about excommunicating the priests who raped children!

What do you think? Should Ratzinger be held responsible for his role in obstructing justice?
