... 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.

Vatican Using Wrong Set of Words re post-pedophile priest epidemic statements

I finally figured out what bothers me about the Vatican and bishops bantering around the words "protect the children," a phrase that pops up over and over in news stories about pedophile priest crimes, such as this from today's Associated Press:

"The Vatican spokesman said justice for the victims and the protection of children remain a priority. The three plaintiffs filed a motion on Monday asking a federal judge in Louisville, Kentucky, to dismiss their claims...."

After thousands of pedophile priest crimes exposed in last 20 years, the Catholic Church has No Credibility on the issue of child protection. None at all. The sound byte they use should be changed to:

"Making sure children never get raped again in Catholic Churches remains a priority."

Say it like it is.

"Protecting children" does not even need to be said, it's a no brainer, goes without saying.

The news is going to bishops for quotes because thousands of priests raped children in Catholic Churches around the world.

The focus here should be on prosecuting criminals, and, I mean, do we really need to take up media and print space to say, "protect children"?

In most human beings protecting children comes by instinct.

These guys are CRIMINALS! Don't quote them, expose them.
