Actually, the bozo priest, Fr. Hammer, is more likely to suffer the punishment meted out (per this AM's newspaper) to a molester-priest in Kentucky--or the more famous fate of the molester-priest who was imprisoned in Massachusetts, but only for a few weeks until he met his Maker.
Lovers' quarrels midst these folks seem to have, ah, long-term consequences, beginning with the assumption of room temperature.

As for me, respect for an institution or a system relies upon prompt and unequivocal consequences.
'Long term' justice is justice minus an execution.
If I knew as a kid that the consequences of disobedience would be put on hold, the door to hell would be more easily open for me the second, third, and forth time around - until my behavior was viewed as normal and commonplace - blowing consequences out the window.
