Blame the victim right?

One of the four priests this man accused is already removed by the Church for other substantiated molestations and the other 3 priests have previous claims of molestation.

But, its the victim who is making this up? Disgusting.

Just a couple thoughts on this topic: Do you really believe in this concept of repressed memory? I personally don’t think it’s possible to forget big things that happen in one’s life. I can forget the little insignificant happenings, but abuse is one thing I would NEVER forget and would even think about it every day. When I was in high school I once had a car approach me while I was walking home where the driver exposed himself. I have NEVER forgotten it and never will. So when someone comes forward and claims repressed memory I don’t accept it because I don’t believe in it. I don’t blame the victim. It’s too bad he didn’t come forward when it supposedly happened, especially since he had two devoted involved parents who could have made a difference. Unfortunately we’ll never know what happened or even if anything happened.
