Jesus Creed

Andrew Sullivan, at the Daily Dish, is obsessed with speculation on the stunted sexuality of abusing priests, which would probably be hard to deny, but does not dwell enough on two things:

1. Mercy and care for the children, many of whom are now adults, who were abused.
2. The system that drags its feet, protects priests in order to help them, fails to report abuse as a crime to the legal system, and then spends too much energy protecting the reputation of the Church. The Church’s reputation is better served telling the truth, admitting sin, and working for the healing of the wounders and wounded.
