... 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.

It is Not that Victims of Pedophile Priests Cannot Forgive, It Is That We Hate Watching Them Get Away With the Crimes

It's that we are disgusted watching these guys get away with never saying more than they have to. The truth just keeps changing. Oh an investigation found new evidence? Okay, then now we'll admit to what was just discovered, but not any more than that. Here, here is a new press statement.
At Left, Mahony and His Lawyer, July 2007

Those of us watching Catholic priest sex crimes over a number of years have watched the truth change, the truth for Catholic hierarchy explaining the pedophile priest epidemic just moves around as different evidence comes out.

Then the Cardinal stands up and makes a press statement admitting that one more bit of evidence is true after all, that their slimeball treatment of children was really worse than they admitted earlier, but it's no big deal because those sex crimes don't happen anymore.

And everyone just believes them.

After all they're wearing holy collars.

Which brings the logic full circle so it bites itself right in the ass.

If Cardinal Roger Mahony had to be deposed on every single perpetrator priest in Los Angeles, the line that defines the truth would just go to new places, would keep moving all over. Soon the cardinal would be shrugging off rapes of hundreds of children, with the same ease as he shrugs off the two boys who were just disposable "illegal immigrants" from his testimony released this week.

I CRY OUT FOR REPORTERS who ask questions, and don't just rely on press statements and releases for stories. Meanwhile, we all get what we get. Mushy leadership.

Criminals run everything in the USA now, why wouldn't they also run the Church?
