    Not to justify , because it doesn't , but to clarify that "man" ( and woman ) are sinners - without exception. We sin in the past , we sin in the present and we sin in the future . Holier than thou claims are without merit . The " hole " count is all the same . (Don't think about that one too long please)

    Man's law takes time to catch up to offenders and is no guarantee there are no more as time is never ending with the remaining fact that man is still a sinner . Only believing that man is inherently good and only good is not to observe that he is also bad . Choices that are never absolute.

    Our children are definitely worth protecting - that is why we are here and why man has law.

    Does anyone truly know or can positively state that these child molestations have really stopped? The newly released documents are said to have retracted the redacted documents and the names of those priests involved are clearly shown. I wonder if the infamous Kelly will finally be shown to be the cowardly child molester he claims not to have been?

    Where are the hearts of the people who still go to this Institution that. allows priests, nuns & brothers to bring little children. in to their inner sanctums to sexually abuse them???This abuse changes. their lives from innocense. to horrific. agony & pain the rest of their days. It is unspeakable to me (I don't handle people. well, )who say "its just a few bad ones." It's not ..it's all over the Catholic world. Do your research and you' ll find. out the truth. It's mind boggeling to think of how long they have gotten away with this evil.
    IT MUST BE STOPPED! ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. ..PLEASE HELP THE CHILDREN!
    ONE CHILD TORTURED LIKE THIS IS TOO MANY!

    And recently the priest in Lockeford left the country after his disgusting abuse of children at that parish! Where's the justice? Where's the shame? Where's the legal system...how do they keep just getting out of paying for their horrific crimes?
