A German psychiatrist has alleged the archdiocese led by the future Pope Benedict XVI ignored repeated warnings in the early eighties that a priest he was treating should not be let around small children. The priest, Father Peter Hullerman, had been accused of sexually molesting young boys. Then-bishop Joseph Ratzinger, approved the priest’s move to Munich for therapy. Father Hellerman continued to see children during his therapy, and in 1986, was convicted of sexual abuse in Bavaria.

Thanks, Steven.
