Pope Francis is no different that previous popes. He actively hides and protects pedophiles just like the others.
The most high profile case is the case of Archbishop Wesolowski, a notorious pedophile who raped countless children in the Dominican Republic and other places, sometimes paying for sex with children.
When the Vatican investigators searched his computer, they found that Archbishop Wesolowski had 100,000 child porn videos.
He left when his accusations became known, and hid in the Vatican, a safe haven for pedophiles and pedophile protectors (like Cardinal Law, Boston leader of the Catholic pedophile syndicate exposed in the movie “Spotlight”).
The Dominican Republic wanted toe Vatican to return Wesolowski to make him stand trial, but the Vatican instead promised their own trial, but Wesolowski died, suspiciously, just before his postponed trial, before the truth might have been exposed.
Thanks to Pope Francis, he did avoid a secular trial, and lived a retirement life in the Vatican for 2 years until his timely death.
