So The Pope and the Catholic church are back in the news. A couple of thoughts. What is it about our society that canít put up with a cop that twists the rules in his favor or our personal revulsion when a young hockey player makes the news because he was sexually molested by his coach and writes a best seller BUT lets the Catholic and other churches molest and bugger young children seemingly at will with zero consequences.
There is no question that a good number of the victims will be scared for life and may never be able to have a trusting relationship and yet these people seem to operate with impunity. Iíve never seen evidence of any of the hundreds of pedophiles that operate within those organizations over all these years ever do any jail time or suffer any real consequences. The churches have been successful in protecting these individuals with no recourse from Government or any Police Force because we as a society allow it.
We attend the courts in mass when a biker seems to have been wrongly dealt with but turn a blind eye to these institutions that bring the vilest of behavior towards our children.
Why do you think that is????
