These are the words of Bill Donohue, President of the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights which is the largest Catholic advocacy group in America with over 350,000 members.
The above pictured quote was Mr. Donohue's response to the Grand Jury's findings that factually documented the rape and sexual abuse of thousands of children by hundreds of Catholic priests in Pennsylvania. (I'm not even going to try to get into the findings here... once was enough and all it will do is make me sick(er). If you need that read it yourself...http://media-downloads.pacourts.us/InterimRedactedReportandResponse... )
In my book, this makes Donohue a defender of predatory priests and an accomplice after the fact (or possibly before). He is backed up in this support by the Catholic Church. (...and please don't say it isn't defended by all of them, because it is... their actions speak MUCH louder than their words)
So, let me make this crystal clear:
Donohue is aiding and abetting pedophiles who prey on young children.
This, in my opinion, is the most heinous crime possible because these children will be horribly scarred for the rest of their lives.
The scars may not be visually evident, but I can tell you they are there because I have some very similar ones like these poor kids bear.
Now I've got to ask you...
If you're Catholic are you okay with what Donohue said?
If not, have you expressed your displease to the Catholic League and the Church Hierarchy?
If you're not Catholic and find his comments as disgusting as I do, have you requested that your religious organization make a public statement repudiating his comments?
BTW, I'm not going to yell, scream, cajole or threaten anyone over this... I'm too heartsick to do that today... I guess I'm just asking for your help...
