Cardinal Timothy Dolan's handling of the child sex abuse scandal that rocked the Catholic Church will soon be public...Yes, the church learned a painful lesson -- not the kids but the church. As usual with such remarks, there is no grasp of the tremendous harm done to children by priests. It's all about the church and its mad game of hiding sexual abuse under the rug.
All of the documents relate to the alleged sexual abuse of children by clergy in Milwaukee.
"I think the Catholic Church has learned a very painful lesson on what not to do in terms of dealing with sexual abuse," said Joseph Zwilling, spokesperson for the Archdiocese of New York.
So here's my question, Zwilling:
Why is it that the Roman Catholic church, sole arbiter of Christian virtue and morals, had (and has) no clue that the abused children are the important end of the sexual abuse equation? Why, when the church got wind of the rampant sexual abuse of children by priests, did the church not immediately report the crimes to the police and try to help the children? And why are they still not trying to help the children?
That's the big question and the church has no answer, none at all. And they never will. This church knows nothing about moral behavior. It is a cesspool of evil. You only have to view Zwilling's final quote in the linked story, to understand this:
The sexual abuse of minors, Zwilling said, is a societal problem not just confined to the church.They still don't understand what they've done. It's amazing and mind-boggling. There isn't a shred of morality in this church.
