... 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.

Feingold opponent spoke for Catholic Church against child sex crime victims in Wisconsin this year

"It is hard to find people who will support the right of the Roman Catholic Church to move priests around in order to protect them and it from lawsuits over child sexual abuse. Unfortunately for Ron Johnson [running against Sen. Russ Feingold], he did just that earlier this year in front of the Wisconsin Legislature."

Johnson spoke for the Green Bay Diocese Finance Council in opposition of the Child Victims bill.

"Johnson’s testimony is unusual, but it could also be very damaging since within it he asks things like 'I think it's a valid question to ask if the employer of the perpetrator should also be severely damaged, possibly destroyed, in a legitimate desire for justice?'

"Actually, that only happens if the employer of the perpetrator is stupid enough to transfer the perpetrator away from the scene of the crime. That is collusion after the fact and in a normal setting of two humans engaging in this kind of behavior, the other person would be arrested. In this case, yes, the Church is getting hit because they transferred the priest instead of calling the cops.

Where I posted this comment:

Love to see places like this where the Corporate Catholic Church's billion dollar lobbying machine backfires against itself. As a victim of Catholic priest sex crimes and a journalist, I've blogged about the pedophile epidemic in the Catholic Church for four years at City of Angels Blog and so I know from experience, the Church goes all out to prevent the truth about the extent of these crimes from reaching mainstream media. But we plod on, keep writing the truth, and the truth will win out, no matter how much they use their Goliath strengh to try and stop us.
