  1. I read this yesterday at EOTT. Funny and biting at the same time. EOTT spares nobody in the Catholic world.

    This an excellent retort to a column I read written by a radTrad, who accused John XXIII and JPII of the priest abuse cover up.

  2. I will say it again, after I say I loved this post. The Catholic Church has never withdrawn the $25,000.00 indemnification for credible clerical victims. therefore, charges of cover-up cannot be made. Outside the case, with proof, it is defamation of character, without proof it is bearing false witness. The Church had secular psychiatrists employed to counsel abusive priests and they declared the priests to be “cured”.
    .
    Everything said in the Sacrament of Penance is hearsay in a court of law. Two witnesses are required to establish a judicial fact. There are no real witnesses to clerical abuse except the victim and the perpetrator. Unless the priest turns state’s evidence, there is only hearsay. Once the criminal turns state’s evidence, he is given immunity from prosecution.
    The church forgives sin in the seal of confession. The state prosecutes crime. If there is a cover up, it is the duty of the state to provide the rule of law.
