Stupid Jerry Brown! Those people were abused by priests who should have been admitted to priesthoods. The vast majority of priests serve God, but some of the child predators that should have been screen out and reported immediately to law enforcement once these activities were performed. Since the Catholic Church had engaged in intentional cover-ups of those priests actions, they should been liable for the emotional damage that they cause the victims of priest sex abuse.

To Jerry Brown
Iím very disappointed you vetoed SB 131. I wanted you to hear from one of the victims of the catholic church. Me. My life has been one aborted attempt after another to pull myself together because I carry this stone in me, in my heart, in my soul, put there by fr. Lynn Caffoe's genitals in the church rectory, in my home, and in the back room of the church during a mass. Growing up, I refused to acknowledge that Iíd been molested, even as it wrecked my life for 40 years. The shame and hate I feel for myself has destroyed me over time, negating my ability to handle relationships, the simplest of stresses, or normal life, wrecking me. I function like an emotional cripple. Iíve been scraping up every penny I can borrow to pay for therapy I canít afford. Yes, I was going to sue. I wanted the catholic church, who is responsible for what was done to me, to pay for my therapy so I had a chance to find some peace and maybe buy a trailer so I can go off somewhere to die in solitude. Maybe if they had to pay enough times, they would take it to heart and change their ways, BUT THEY HAVEN'T CHANGED YET. They say Peter was the Rock on which they built the church, well all the children theyíve broken are the gravel under that foundation. There is no statute of limitations on the damage done to me until Iím dead. So, in summary, youíre an asshole and your god doesn't exist to forgive you. Thanks.
