Patron Saint of Pedophilia?

When I heard that the current pope was going to canonize John Paul II I was honestly horrified.

Considering that during his rein we had the eruption of the AIDS epidemic and the church continued to preach the sinfulness of condom use while millions of sub Saharan Africans become infected and died from AIDS through unprotected sex.

During his rein it came to light that not only were there priests abusing children but that there was complicity at the highest levels to hide and move abusive priests and to intimidate and silence those abused.

Does that sound like the behavior of someone who should be elevated to sainthood?!? No.
