I think perhaps reading this at this late date dilluted the immediacy of this shameful topic -- the abuse, but also the heinous cover-up. The author did a fine job of reporting, but I was amazed to read that after unearthing such a thing he retained his Catholicity. Mine departed in 1980 and all I can say is after reading this I'm glad it did.

"Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever... now suck it!" ...yesyes...quite a sex racket. Otherwise, why go into the bend-over Biz ?

A disturbing account of what really goes on in the Catholic church. How anyone can choose to be a part of this sham is beyond my comprehension.

Oddly, it keeps me in a church.

Beginning of the Great Expiation. The Stripping of the Temple Veils. God Speaks to the Arrogant. Whatever...
