... Not Just L.A., The City of Angels Is Everywhere...

I was age five when the bishop stood over me and said, "Stop babbling about what the priest did to you." Then, forty years later... I started babbling.

Supposed to be at work but... there is no work, so...

Commenting on stories around the globe:

Focus is on Catholics as there have been 6000 priests found so far in U.S. parishes who were pedophiles. Aiding and abetting them was official policy of the Vatican. No one is focusing on a religion, it's an institution that because of inherent secrecy and Dark Age practices, an epidemic of pedophilia went on for decades. There are Tens of Thousands of adult victims in the U.S. now as a result. I write as one of the victims at City of Angels Blog and what happened in the CathChurch cannot be compared to any other situation, no matter how much the Vatican points the finger elsewhere.

Posted today at Off the Grid at Vanity Fair:

It's Catholicism Itself, Stupid

I wonder what this was? When you click on it, the story has been removed. Then you can't get to PNC at all. will try again later. This was in a Google news alert for Archdiocese a little after 12 noon yesterday, March 22:

SNAP Representative A No-Show; And No Explanation
Pacific News Center
She said her intent was to draw attention to and foster an open dialogue about the issue of child sex abuse by members of the Archdiocese of Agana...

Will see if the link is repaired later today...
Whatever that was above, here is signs of GREAT WORK by Joelle Casteix, who pretty much operates on her own within SNAP, she's one of those people who are able to do that, and applause to her, this was on Abuse Tracker the 23rd AM:

SNAP names priest for alleged sexual abuse
[with video]

Guam - The Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests is hoping to provide a support group for individuals on Guam who have been victims of sexual abuse at the hands of members of clergy. In preparation for the support meetings that will be held over the next two days, the organization uncovered some disturbing information about clergy who have spent time on Guam in the hopes that victims of sexual abuse at the hands of priests or other church members will have the courage to come forward.
