I haven't said anything even remotely close to it should stay hidden because its a church or priest. In fact I have said the opposite repeatedly and said any abuse in the church should be exposed and I want to see a bigger effort to expose all abuse and not just the abuse some feel is "newsworthy" because to the victims, its terrible no matter where it happened.<quoted text>
And it seems that you are ignoring the facts of the matter as stated in my posts, its not just the church who the press have a downer on.
You are focussing on the church for you own reasons. To me it doesnt really matter who the abusers are just so long as they are made an example of so potential abusers may at least think about the consequences and the abused can have the understanding that there abuses have been punished for there crimes.
Just because it is a church or a priest does not mean that it should be hidden, just the opposite in fact, justice should be seen to be done.
Maybe on the 4th try you can figure out a way to make this a disagreement? Sheesh
