How ironic, that Mayor Nutter should refer to his Jesuit education at St. Joe's Prep and the Ignatian motto of "man for others". Maybe the Mayor could ask his two fellow leaders at the news conference, Archbishop Chaput and Governor Corbett, why they have not supported the important and valuable legislative proposals in Harrisburg that would eliminate the Statute of Limitations for child sexual abuse no matter where the incidents occur. When planning for the World Meeting of Families, this city, this Catholic Church and this Commonwealth should ALWAYS remember those child abuse victims and their families who struggle day in and day out throughout their lives with the emotional, psychological, spiritual and physical pain of their sexual abuse in their most innocent time of life. Reps. Rozzi and Bishop in Harrisburg have shared their own personal struggles and families throughout the state endure the devastating effects of child sexual abuse from many years ago. They deserve and are entitled to have their stories told and access to justice through the PA legal system. Let us have Archbishop Chaput and Governor Corbett be "men for others", which, in this case, is "men for children."
