More BS.<quoted text>
Notice how he just jumped past wiegels statement:"That hard fact does not in any way excuse clerical sexual predation; nor do the facts about this plague absolve bishops who were malfeasant in their responsibilities as shepherds, or who trusted to psychology more than moral theology in making their decisions. But the factsand the selective way they are dealt with in too much of the mainstream mediado suggest that the story line declaring the Catholic Church a uniquely perverse institution is a lie; those who perpetrate it are either ignorant bigots, or people with agendas other than the protection of young people, or both."
I think every single school district in the nation has at least one perpetrator. At least one," says Mary Jo McGrath, a California lawyer who has spent 30 years investigating abuse and misconduct in schools. "It doesn't matter if it's urban or rural or suburban."
, the perpetrators that the AP found are everyday educators _ teachers, school psychologists, principals and superintendents among them
For one, many Americans deny the problem, and even treat the abuse with misplaced fascination.
It's dealt with in a salacious manner with late-night comedians
"In other cases, it's reported as if this is some deviant who crawled into the school district _'and now that they're gone, everything's OK.' But it's much more prevalent than people would think."
In case after case the AP examined, accusations of inappropriate behavior were dismissed.
Teachers, administrators and even parents frequently don't, or won't, recognize the signs that a crime is taking place.
Arthur Sensor, the former superintendent in Oelwein, Iowa, who vividly recalls pressuring Lindsey to quit on Feb. 18, 1964, regrets that he didn't do more to stop him back then.
Now, he says, he'd call the police.
"He promised me he wouldn't do it again _ that he had learned. And he was a young man, a beginning teacher, had a young wife, a young child," Sensor, now 86 years old, said during testimony at the Bramows' civil trial.
"I wanted to believe him, and I did."
Please show us where anyone claims that the Catholic Church is a "uniquely perverse institution?"
DUH!!! Your church stands on a pedestal and puts down all others as "untrue." That's like a devoted Communist still claiming that Communism works.
Like a devout Communist, you are arguing against all reality.
Thus, you have no choice but to make up lies -- and then answer those lies. It avoids reality nicely, but you still sound foolish.
Don't believe me. Believe the millions spent on a Super Bowl ad -- the Joe Montana ketchup stain.
It's so absurd, the RCC has become a worldwide joke. That's reality!!!
Hello??? The RCC is making a joke of Jesus and you are a robotic part of the process.
