Catholic Church Angry at not Getting Special Treatment

Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, the Vatican Secretary of State, is annoyed.

Belgian authorities have seized around 500 files, searched church property, and held priests for questioning, over allegations of child sex abuse committed by a certain number of Church figures. The Belgian Catholic Church has previously apologised for it's silence on past sex abuse.

Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, doesn't like it. He has called the detention of priests "serious and unbelievable". He said that "there are no precedents, not even under the old communist regimes".

He's right, there is no precedent for the church to be subject to the rule of law.

Cardinal Bertone also complained that bishops were kept in church during a search of church premises.

The Catholic Church not given special treatment? Shocking!
