Shameful silence on clerical abuse

To read the sad attempts of clergy to distance themselves from personal responsibility for the abuse of children is tragic enough.

Surely these men comprehend that the law of the land and the 10 commandments take precedence over canon law.

Abuse victims want nothing more than the truth.

The old adage 'the truth hurts' is causing so much angst among the self-styled specially-chosen that it makes me think they imagine the omnipotent presence is as great a fool as themselves.
