Pope Francis has been quoted as
saying that reliable data indicates
that "about two per cent" of clergy
in the Catholic Church are pae-

He vowed to "confront it with the
severity it demands".
But a Vatican spokesman said the
quotes in the newspaper did not cor-
respond to Pope Francis s exact words.
The BBC s David Willey in Rome
says there is often a studied ambiguity
in Pope Francis off-the-cuff state-
He wants to show a more compas-

sometimes cause consternation among

When is a papal interview not an
interview? Yesterday s edition of La
Repubblica devotes its first three pages
to an account of a conversation
between Pope Francis and editor Euge-
nio Scalfari, which took place last
Thursday. Papal spokesman Federico
Lombardi said in a sharp note that it
was not an interview in the normal
sense of the word, although he admit-
ted it conveyed the "sense and the
spirit" of the conversation.
Mr Scalfari does not use a digital
recorder, and Father Lombardi said
Pope Francis never checked the accu-
racy of the interview.
Until now, the Vatican has declined
to quantify the extent of clerical sexual
abuse scandals in the worldwide
Church. Statistics are usually available
only for countries in the developed
world. In the developing world, infor-
mation is usually only sketchy.
In the interview, Pope Francis was
quoted as saying that the two per cent
estimate came from advisers. It would
represent around 8,000 priests out of
a global number of about 414,000.
While the incidence of paedophilia
as a psychiatric disorder in the general
population is not accurately known,
some estimates have put it at less than
five per cent.
"Among the 2 per cent who are pae-
dophiles are priests, bishops and car-
dinals. Others, more numerous, know
but keep quiet. They punish without
giving the reason," Pope Francis was
quoted as saying.
"I find this state of affairs intoler-
able," he went on.

ran the headline: "Pope says: Like
Jesus, I shall use a stick against pae-

Last year Pope Francis strengthened
the Vatican s laws against child abuse
and earlier this month begged forgive-
ness from the victims of sexual abuse
by priests, at his first meeting with
victims since his election.
Many survivors of abuse by priests
are angry at what they see as the Vat-
ican s failure to punish senior officials
who have been accused of covering
"The problem certainly exists but
it is not on a large scale. It will need
time but the solutions are there and
I will find them."
Father Lombardi also denied that
these were the Pope s exact words.
