The untold story of the Catholic Church pedophelia scandals is that sometimes great organizations forget why they exist. This may seem odd but religons and houses of worship exist to meet the spiritual needs of the congregants. A clergyman is a public service whose job it is to help the customers ( you) meet you your needs. The clergyman serves as coach, leader, role model , shrink and other roles. However without congregants clergymen and churches have no reason to exist.
The real story about the abuse scandal is that temporarily the Catholic Church forgot its mission. The law breaking priests were shuffled around when they should have been fired. The Church has mended its ways and has gone back to its primary job.
In any large population there will be a certain ammount of law breaking. This is just a reality of life and numbers. I am certain there are Journalists who break the law. There are plenty of Marxist professors that have Clintonian relations with students in direct violation of the rules of the institutions. Genuine sexual harassment and malfeasence takes place in corporations. However the far left journalists only get into a feeding frenzy when malfeasence involves a non muslim clergyman or law enforcement officers. The reason for this is that the far left has a warped anarcho/marxist agenda and such stories feed their biases.
Lost in the story is the excellent work in the Community the Catholic Church does each and every day. Catholic Schools educate and turn out fine men and women every year. The Church runs hospitals, homeless shelters and is an asset in the community it serves daily. The overwhelming majority of the priests do serve their congregants each and every day in a variety of capacities.
The insane class action lawsuits are forcing the church to sell off assets and reduce services. Is the overall public made better by these obsessive awards for in many cases dubious claims? When little Johny or Sally need a to get a superior education will they go to the country clubs of these class action attorneys. When Dave or Hiram become homeless will they go to these liars er lawyers to put their life in order. When Mary and Juanita need a hospital will these law firms provide a nickel of medical service.
As for the victims cash awards do not right wrongs. I know a variety of Holocaust survivors and none of the ones I knew and loved got a nickel. Most went on to lead exemplary lives but some did not. Yet this is to be expected in a large population.
Would my Uncle have been more functional if he had not been through the Holocaust? The answer is we just don't know. I am fairly certain that oodles of money would not have made him happier and he had plenty when he passed away. Yet my Uncle never blamed anyone for his life and he continued on albeit miserable and making those who loved him miserable but it became loveable. If a person wants to rationalize a failed life there will always be reasons and cash awards do not change that.
Moving ahead in Islam and Communism the people exist to serve the Utopian quest. Having people blow themselves up and never ending colonial land theft/ global conquest are not what a religion is about. Are Farouks spiritual needs met when he blows himself to smithereens? Is Fatima served by living in a Country rife with corruption, abusive authorities and economies that can not grow due to the never ending violence the koran preaches?
John Brown, Ducky and Uptown are Marxists looking for handouts. Since the all mighty state owns everything the party members are shareholders. They get to live the easy life on your back. They get to create ideaological gulags in accademia where mediocities like terrorists Dorn and Ayers get six figures for single digit work weeks. They get to control the minions who go into the journalism profession so we can get news stories like Abu Gharib for months and a blip about Beslan and train bombings in India. There will be more religion of peace stories then stories about the crimes itself. Lost in the story of the Iraq Soldier rape case is the USA tries its war criminals. Was anyone tried for mines that look like toys and war crimes against the Afghan People when Marxocolonialists invaded? Anyone put on trial for the creation of neoslavery gulags? How come the flow of refuges always seems to follow Marxist Utopias? Marx is a failed religion and all its adherents are cult like loooooosers. Brown take that last sentence to your friends at the Enema Goldman Finishing School. Lets see anarcho Bombmaking 101, The lives of revolutionary couch potatoes second period, how to feign outrage while stealing from the masses for their own good, planned starvation.
