      Pope 'led cover-up of child abuse by priests' 9/30/06 "The Pope played a
      leading role in a systematic cover-up of child sex abuse by Roman Catholic
      priests, according to a shocking documentary to be screened by the BBC tonight. In
      2001, while he was a cardinal, he issued a secret Vatican edict to Catholic
      bishops all over the world, instructing them to put the Church's interests
      ahead of child safety. The document recommended that rather than reporting
      sexual abuse to the relevant legal authorities, bishops should encourage the
      victim, witnesses and perpetrator not to talk about it. And, to keep victims
      quiet, it threatened that if they repeat the allegations they would be
      excommunicated. The Panorama special, Sex Crimes And The Vatican...."

      Psychobiological Characteristics of Dissociative Identity Disorder: A Symptom
      Provocation Study A.A.T. Simone Reinders, Ellert R.S. Nijenhuis, Jacqueline
      Quak, Jakob Korf, Jaap Haaksma, Anne M.J. Paans, Antoon T.M. Willemsen and
      Johan A. den Boer "Background - Dissociative identity disorder (DID) patients
      function as two or more identities or dissociative identity states (DIS),
      categorized as ‘neutral identity states’ (NIS) and ‘traumatic identity states’
      (TIS). NIS inhibit access to traumatic memories thereby enabling daily life
      functioning. TIS have access and responses to these memories. We tested
      whether these DIS show different psychobiological reactions to trauma-related
      memory....Results - Psychobiological differences were found for the different DIS.
      Subjective and cardiovascular reactions revealed significant main and
      interactions effects. Regional cerebral blood flow data revealed different neural
      networks to be associated with different processing of the neutral and
      trauma-related memory script by NIS and TIS. Conclusions - Patients with DID
      encompass at least two different DIS. These identities involve different subjective
      reactions, cardiovascular responses and cerebral activation patterns to a
      trauma-related memory script."
