Update "The Case Of The Pope" by Geoffrey Robertson, QC.

Dear Mr. Makinson,

First I must applaude the decision of Penguin Books to support the efforts of Geoffrey Robertson, QC, in the development of "The Case Of The Pope".  The resulting publication has provided a much needed insight in to the legal avenues which can be explored to bring the Roman Catholic Church, and the Holy See, in front of a international court to answer for their crimes against the children that were entrusted to their care.

While this initial effort was laudable, the legal framework described in the original book has changed, as have some of the circumstances of the proposed defendants, hence Geoffrey Robertson Q.C. needs the support of Penguin to update and revise the contents of his original volume to reflect this additional information before a law suit can be brought against the Roman Catholic church and The Holy See.

Please support Geoffrey Robertson's efforts by funding a second edition of the book.

      Time is ticking as pressure mounts across the globe to begin targeting the Holy See directly, via international law.

      Please pass this petition along to as many of your friends and colleagues as possible, so we can help get the ball rolling!

      Being a paediatric surgeon I feel strongly for the protection of children. Crime against children should be prosecuted, tried and punished, whoever and how high in social ladders the criminal is.

      Child sexual abuse is wrong and religion should not be used as an excuse or cover

      I do believe the pope is responsible for attempting to cover up the child scandals.

      This bullshit has gone on without consequence for far too long.

      I fully support all religious leaders to be held responsible and brought to justice for the atrocities committed and/or condoned by them.
