Do you think the Pope should face legal action over the Catholic child abuse cover-ups?
51% - Yes. This cover-up appears to go to the very top and its perpetrators must face justice.22% - Yes. While it's unlikely the Pope will end up in the dock, suggestion of a legal challenge during his UK visit will draw attention to the extent of the cover-up.
13% - No. This is about many individual, horrific cases of abuse spread over decades. It is a distraction to try and attribute responsibility to one man.
1% - No. This looks like atheist posturing. We need to join with Catholics in calling on the Vatican to come clean on this issue, and talk of arresting the Pope will just alienate them
It's a fascinating and disturbing take on the Catholic Church and what Richard calls its "murky relationship with the rule of law", and shows that child abuse isn't the only issue on which we should be holding the Church to account.
