I am reading Render Unto Rome: The Secret Life of Money in the Catholic Church. Per the Kindle, I am 23% of the way through the book. My location is where then Archbishop Seán O'Malley is visiting the Vatican and Cardinal Castrillón in particular.
This passage made me ask myself, if Massachsetts Senate President William Bulger had been a Bishop and his brother, Whitey, had been a Priest, guilty of pedophilia, rather than mere murder, would the People of Massachusetts have been more willing to condemn him (William) for his (William's) willingness to shelter his brother and protect him.
I think so.
