There are quite a few ways that you can view the Catholic child abuse scandal and the question of the Pope's responsibility. You might think, for example, that there are unanswered questions regarding what the Pope knew, but that by focussing on him we risk letting the real culprits off the hook. Maybe you agree with Catholic commentator Damian Thompson, who says that Pope Benedict XVI has done more than anyone else in the Church to root out the abusers? Perhaps you just want to see the Pope come clean, tell us what he knew, and open up his Church to the same legal scrutiny we would expect secular organisations to receive?
Or, you could adopt the line taken by Tim Minchin in his catchy new number, "Pope Song". be warned: it contains some rather choice language.
So, which line are you taking?
