Many news outlets are reporting that there is a “smoking gun” letter from the “Vatican” that instructed them not to report abuse claims and threatened them with repercussions. At the time of this writing, a Google search shows 528 stories with this same basic theme.

Problem is, its all a lie!

Oh there is a letter, but it does not say what they allege it says and that should be obvious to anyone with a single fair bone in their bodies.

I will not spend any time here explaining why its a lie because I could not possibly do it any better than Jimmy Akin has already done it.

So anyone wondering what is going must read Jimmy’s post on this at the Register. It is a must read! Go. Now. What are you still doing here? Go read it here!!
