Subject: RE: BS: Catholic religion response to 'today'
"So blind, so selfish, so up their own arse!" And the institution as a whole doesn't seem to be learning its lesson. As I understand it the four complainants against Cardinal O'Brien (ie three practising priests and an ex-priest) only went public because of the way the church was dealing with, or not-dealing with the allegations. They weren't just protecting their own - they were protecting the more powerful among their own. What chance would a susceptible member of the community have of being believed or at least taken seriously if respected figures in the church aren't?
