"Ties to"?

At this point I think that would disqualify even the parishioners.

These guys have been around for DECADES.

There is absolutely no way that any of them have not swept dirt under the rug somewhere.

Wow! I am certain that Rule 1 of sex abuse is "Do not talk about sex abuse".

Baron Harkonnen: Well, no, he actually did do a lot as a Cardinal to track down sex offenders.

Did he not, as a cardinal, write the official instructions which said that sex abuse allegations were not to be reported to the police?

kingoomieiii: I genuinely hope they just pick another 80-year-old bigot hardliner to make sure the church never recaptures its relevance with the younger generations.

Every Pope is claimed to have a special empathy with young people, and to be bringing about a renewal in the church.

DROxINxTHExWIND: What the fark is "unintended sexual misconduct"?? Oh, and fark you for not mentioning the victims at all as a reason to disqualify a boy raping preist. Those children aren't a "distraction". They're human beings.

It means "unintended ties to sexual misconduct", not "ties to unintended sexual misconduct". So, for example, being a bishop one of whose priests turns out to have been raping the altar boys.
