    Now It's Ireland

    Also Monday, the Vatican announced the pope had accepted the resignation of an Irish-born archbishop who had led the Benin City diocese in Nigeria and faced accusations that he carried on a 20-year relationship with a woman that began when she was 14.

    Archbishop Richard Burke, 61, had been suspended. He was the latest bishop to resign amid the church abuse scandal, as Benedict moves to get rid of bishops who either admitted they molested youngsters or covered up for priests who did.

    Child-abuse scandals have caused exceptional trauma in Ireland, a once-devoutly Catholic nation. An Irish government collapsed in 1994 amid arguments over its failure to extradite a pedophile priest to Northern Ireland. Since 2002, a government-organized compensation board has paid out more than euro800 million ($983 million) to 13,000 people abused in Ireland's church-run residential institutions for children.

    If there's to be a life in the hereafter
    And somehow I'm sure there's going to be
    I will ask my god to let me make my heaven
    In that dear land across the Irish Sea

    Why do you think this should be in the political discussion forum?

    It's been in here a 100 times before, there have been many threads about the pedophile priests in here, I'll ask the Mods to remove it.

    Dear Mods
    This subject doesn't seem appropriate for the political forum to some viewers, I apologize.

    The Vatican is a country is it not? The leader of that country covers up the molesting of children. I'd call it proper fodder for the political forum!
    And as for the price, that's barely over 75,000 grand per kid diddled! Talk about cheap! I think Michael Jackson had to pay like 20 million per kid.
