More on the Scandal du jour

More on the Scandal du jour
Below you will be given the option to view yet another document from my files—this one a letter that I wrote to the daily newspaper in Dallas six years ago.
Six years ago! What has happened since then? All sorts of procedures have been put into place to deal with any priests who today are accused of child abuse.
But where are the procedures that deal with the bishops and their lackeys who have covered up—and continue to cover up—past and present child abuse by priests?
Actually, a much more basic question is this: Where is the sorrow and contrition of the bishops—all the way to the present Pope? They are quick to forgive the priests who have “sinned;” but they have never--NEVER—to this point asked for forgiveness for their complicity in this sin. I need say no more.
