Apparently Benedict helped cover up child molestation whilst the bishop of Munich, and had a hand in silencing priests from talking about the abuse cases.

Thoughts?

pope's only infallible when he says he is :)

The Pope is never wrong.
The Pope helps child abusers from being punished.
Ergo, child abuse isn't wrong.

Papal infallibility has only ever been used twice, and it has to be used to matter. It was used for the virgin birth and the bodily entrance of Mary into heaven.
It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

No, he's only infallible When he specifically states that he's basically channeling God :)

The Pope helps child abusers from being punished.
Ergo, child abuse isn't wrong.

Yes.

Catholics have to listen. so I don't see how it's particularly convenient for them.

seems like the pope has a pretty good motive to declare himself infallible on this point does it?

"it may seem that i was doing a great harm, but in fact god spoke to me and showed me the way. all part of his plan"

its already a serious PR problem, its not like it could get that much worse...
