... 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.

If you think your church is under attack, you're saying your religion is about pedophilia

How is advocating for truth about pedophile priest sex crimes an attack on religion, or even on the Catholic Church? I'm one of the victims who is also a journalist, and I have covered these crimes at City of Angels Blog for four years:

It's shocking that this much criminal activity against children was allowed to happen, and the real perpetrators, the bishops who kept these men in the priesthood, are still in office, in positions of esteem.

What does that have to do with religion or God or Christ?

If you think your church is under attack, you're saying your religion has something to do with pedophilia.

There are 10,969 pedophile priests identified so far in the U.S. by Bishop Accountability, 20-200 times more than any other profession. I know from experience that Catholic bishops are doing all they can to keep the truth about the extent of these crimes from getting into mainstream media.

It's felony sex crimes against children, not religion, that is at issue here. Please stop defending your spiritual concerns and realize that this issue needs to be turned over to federal law enforcement.
