Vineuse, I can't think of too many traumas which are more damaging to a child than being repeatedly raped by a priest, a man who represents God. (This is not to say that there are equally horrific thi more »

torioski, It is absolutely incorrect to state that the survivors are "all in their 60's." Children have been abused by priests for many decades, before 50 years ago and since. There are records of abu more »

SouthCoast34, Abuse by priests did not end many, many decades ago. There have been credible allegations of abuse all the way into this decade. It is not ancient history by any means. And, you seem to more »

Regarding the lawyers, don't blame the messenger. Focus your anger and distrust where it belongs, on the abusive priest and any other clergy members who knew of the abuse and did nothing. more »

I am able to see photos of family and friends who live far away, enjoy that. I have found that my fb friends DO share the difficulties, such as serious illness. It is a good opportunity to receive sup more »

Patrick, There is no reason to feel that a small donation to a worthwhile cause is "insufficient." Every little bit helps. Giving a donation is not a competition to see who can give more. I often give more »

I guess I must be evil, wrong, immoral, as I criticize this guy's motives and efforts to protect kids.

BAMDAD118: You are ignoring all the female victims of sexual abuse by priests. Reliable reports put the number of female victims at over 30%. Many abusers raped/abused both boys and girls. And did you more »

Well said, David. I have been having the same reaction to this nonsense about the burial.

Thank you, Clements. You are a voice of reason. Appreciate your logical, sane, factual comments.

Amiroussin1: If Law's life is "ruined," he brought that consequence upon himself. However, how ruined can his life be when he still holds the respected position of cardinal, did not suffer any legal more »

move-onNJ, It is not "anti-Catholic" or "taking shots" to report the facts. The media, including the Globe, has been reporting on, and gushing over, virtually every move the new pope has made. His mee more »

This is news? The pope thanked the hotel staff. Not humility, just common decency, respect and courtesy. Even if this is a contrast to previous popes, this does not mean the new pope is doing somet more »

The pope and O'Malley did not meet with "alleged" victims. They met with victims. How insulting to these men & women to use the word "alleged" when their accusations have been found credible. There more »

I wonder, too, why anyone can stay on a church led by men who are such hypocrites; a church which preaches that our gay brothers and sisters do not deserve equal rights (while many of the clergy are c more »

Clergy abuse victims think O'Malley could have done much more because they know the inside story. They know the difference between what O'Malley's PR people report and what has actually happened. Th more »

The idea that he is a tremendous "reformer" regarding clergy abuse is a myth. Simply not true.

Speaking as one who was abused by a priest, I thank you for your concern.

Incredible1: Google "female victims of clergy abuse" and you will find many articles on female victims. Just one example: http://www.boston.com/globe/spotlight/abuse/stories4/122702_women.htm Over ha more »

Your father is seriously deluded if he thinks the sexual abuse crisis does not exist. Sad and pathetic.
Posted 02/17/2013 11:33:29 EST
You're ignoring the many girls who were abused by priests. The fact that more than 30% of the victims are female is typically ignored by those who incorrectly equate pedophelia with homosexuality. more »

I agree with your comments, Jeannemarie. So relieved to know that Allie is home safe. I only wish that the family would/could talk about her experience and what led up to her leaving. Allie's heali more »
