It is intriguing that when the topic here is the sexual abuse of children that some would like to silence or restrict that!!!
Why is that?

. . . damage done

After reading Bishop Thomas G. Wenski's let-bygones-be-bygones,just-look-at-us-now piece, I find myself truly disappointed by the bishop'sfailure to fully recognize the damage done by the clergy.

"Child sexual abuse" is the term the bishop uses for child rape and tortureadministered to its victims by those whom the children trusted. The bishopsays that the clergy simply reflect the society in general, so, therefore, youreally shouldn't be surprised when its sexual perversions are unmasked.

But if the unmasking had never been done, if the press had not the courageto print, if the church was still the all powerful presence of the past, Ifeel relatively confident that the rape and torture of children would havecontinued unabated. And those guilty of those heinous crimes would simply havebeen shuffled from parish to parish as usual.
