I don’t know whether the problem of sexual abuse of children is inherent to human nature or not. But I think what is important is not to be in denial about the extent and seriousness of the problem — really, it’s much more than that… it is a crime, it is evil incarnate. This is not a pleasant subject, so I understand why people don’t like to talk about it, including the Catholic Church. However, this is serious stuff which has to be seriously addressed and fully exposed, and not in a lukewarm fashion, but rather aggressively… just like the Zelaya threat was aggressively addressed in Honduras. Personally, I don’t care about preserving the institution of any Church if the price is to allow that institution to continue enabling evil acts by sick people for generations to come. It has to stop.
