Rome a world away

Scandal running so deep

All are tainted

 

Worshipers fall away

Or turn a blind eye

Attendance ebbs and flows

 

Summits are held

Papal assurance offered

The status quo holds

 

Innocent victims

Revictimized

By inaction

 

Defrocked clergy

Is not the same

As imprisonment

" 

“They like to use those fancy words. They don't like to say “raped,'” he said. “They say “misdeed,' “inappropriate touching,' “mistake.' That's insulting." ― Charles L. Bailey Jr.

It is insulting ~ and yet another form of cover up. 

Thanks for this, M. C. ...

Thank you for reading Anna and you're right it is insulting.

As far as I know the Church, in 2000 years, has never ever handled its many misdeeds in any way that brings apprpriate resolution to its victims. Defrocking a priest may actually feel like a terrible consequence to the priest himself, but these men need to serve prison time.

MC, its good to see you here.

The Vatican doesn’t have authority over prisons. That’s civil.

Hey, 416, I was wondering just yesterday where you'd gone. Good to see you back.

And yeah -- lock 'em up. Priests should have no immunity from the full weight of the law.

Do priests have any immunity? I don’t know why they would.

Hello 519,  thank you for dropping in a reading.  I'm with you these so called holy men must starting going before the courts and doing time in jail.

Rosi, thank you for reading and sharing.  Its shameful what's been allowed to happen.  Time has come to act, no more talk.
