Pope Francis: 'Those who covered-up Sex Abuse are 'Sh*t''

Pope Francis is in Ireland today for the World Meeting of Families. His visit has been clouded by recent revelations of how deep the sex abuse scandal really is in the Catholic Church, especially in the United States of America.  Ireland has had many cases of sex abuse by priests and religious for decades. This has led to a sharp decline in Catholicism on the nation, a once Catholic strong hold. Evidence of this decline is evidence in the nations legalization of so-called same-sex marriage and abortion.

Crowds at the papal events are expected to be smaller than normal compared to Saint Pope John Paul II's visit in the 1970s. Pope Francis spoke out on the sex abuse scandal and vowed to end it. However, he did not give any details as to how he would do this. He used strong rhetoric and even resorted to saying that those who covered up child abuse in the Catholic Church are "caca" or "Sh*t." This word is the Spanish vulgar expression for feces.
