Impersonal outrage

My outrage at the Pope, the Vatican and the hierarchy of the Catholic Church is not personal. It has to do with the fact that tens of thousands of children have been raped and tortured by employees of an institution that insists it represents “God” on earth and thus it should be treated specially. This is so absurd that it boggles the mind. What I find more troubling is that so many people are not obsessed with these crimes against humanity and mobilizing to try and stop them.
