Cardinal Omella, president of the Spanish Bishops' Conference, says the figures are "exaggerated", that they are "lies" and accuses the media of lying and that they are: "figures extrapolated by some media are lies and are intended to deceive".

In some cases crimes have been admitted and blame has been accepted (how magnanimous of them) and therapies have been paid for, but the feeling that "everything stays at home" after decades of hiding all this shit under their lavish and hypocritical carpets is unavoidable.
