    Have you ever wondered why it's usually priests that get accused decades later of abuse?

    So what sets the accusers of priests apart from other claimants? The John Jay study commissioned by the U.S. Bishops revealed that the highest percentage of accusers of Catholic priests came forward not in the 1960s to 1980s when the abuse was claimed to have occurred, but between 2002 and 2004 when Catholic dioceses entered, or were forced into, mediated or “blanket” settlements.

    The notion that so many "silent" claims came forward after the first settlements is the issue. Not that abuse did occur. But the standards for claims and the notion that 30 years later with no formal or informal complaint some come forward to collect a check. Bopope continues to bleat about hiding priests from the courts but forgets that all persons are innocent until proven guilty. If Bopope really wants to live in a country where this is not the case he can go to russia. Where a few thousand bucks can buy a conviction without much in the way of a trial.

    Well I said so months ago. I'm not happy about it. What are the options? Much like 911FOOLS, you whack it down with truth and logic and it grows two new threads. Sorry if you get it.
    I just put my two in time to time. Peace to all, but a focus on our troubled folk. They need the benefit of a change of their worrisome minds.

    Have you ever wondered that some people wait until the priest is dead to report it?  Have  you ever wondered why a monsignor goes visiting bedside in the hospital only to ask where the persons check is? have you ever wondered why you have to PAY to get married in a catholic church that you have donated to for most of your life?   I think there are definitely priests that have abused and there are definitely people that have not actually been abused that are jumping on the band wagon.  I also think I am glad that I don't attend mass anymore and I talk to "my god" whenever and wherever I want to....have a nice day!
