They're no different from the secular leftists in Big Media ... The Agenda (whatever it may be, in this case destroying "Rome") trumps all. Truth, completeness, context ... all are irrelevant. Even when they do accidentally publish something true, it is invariably a half truth or a distortion ... and one must always be on guard for outright falsehoods when reading any of their material.
I don't believe that they forget ... any more than the secular leftists in Big Media and Big Government 'forget' what the Second Amendment or First Amendment mean, or 'forget' that a 'fetus' is in fact a live human person, or ...
It's just that mentioning such inconvenient facts doesn't promote their agenda.
Nobody forgets that. The issue has never been that abuse happened because everyone knows that abuse happens. Nobody can prevent someone determined to abuse from abusing. They will find a way. That is recognized.
What the problem is is what this article admits to; the mismanaging of the abuse.

It's too bad the RCC didn't have the integrity to address the issue properly until the negative publicity from the world forced them to act.
