Subject: RE: BS: Clerical abuse of kids: More Revelations
Recent boston globe article says 30% of living bishops. Even that sounds low. Do we know how many actually reported offensives, say since 2002 or so when at the very least they should have seen the writing on the wall. I think many were trying to protect church assets, and I don't blame them, but some were totally willing (aka pell and others) to be totally cruel to victims..oh dear..so was the pope in chili. I am thinking a bishop in us who reported anything to anybody would be an absolute outlier but I could be wrong. And those international bishops who declared at a synod this just was not a problem in their dioceses are beyond belief.
