I was yesterday speaking to a former priest about this issue and he said that a particular family he knows whose child was abused left the church not due to what happened to their son but due to the way the Bishop dealt with it. They told the Bishop IF they didn't do something with the abusive priest (who had been abusing kids for years at several parishes with the full knowledge of the Bishop) then they would go to the press. The Bishop refused and the family took the story to the press. That is why some of this is in the press now..not the EVIL press trying to destroy the Church but an EVIL Bishop not protecting the children but protecting and EVIL priest.
I do not believe that the 'sodomite criminals' are out to destroy the Catholic church.You surely are NOT a Boy Scout of America :-)
Using that logic we all should have renounced our citizenship and left the country when those cowards in the Senate failed to convict Clinton. Sounds like they placed their faith in men rather than in God.
