Pope Benedict XVI, beginning a controversial state visit to Britain, acknowledged Thursday that the Catholic Church failed to act decisively or quickly enough to deal with priests who rape and molest children.
He said victims were the church's top priority as it tries to help them heal spiritually and psychologically.
"This visit should never had happened. We stand here against these abusers. This is a waste of taxpayers' money," Mr. Paisley said.
