Click here to read: “U.N. Faults U.S. for Failure to Prosecute Abusive Clerics,” by Caleb Bell, Religion News Service, Huffington Post, 2/20/2013
Excerpt: Sister Mary Ann Walsh, spokeswoman for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, said that the hierarchy does a “huge amount” in order to prevent sex abuse within the church — much of it learned after the abuse scandal came to light.
Editor’s note: Those “audits” were taking place before the release of the Philadelphia Grand Jury Report in 2011 and did absolutely nothing to expose the cover ups here or elsewhere in the US. Sister Mary Ann, please wake up. As their spokesperson, you are providing another example of the skirts hiding behind a skirt. This isn’t a problem of the past – it’s ongoing. We can and should educate our children, but if adults don’t do the right thing, it doesn’t matter.
