Subject: RE: BS: Clerical abuse of kids: More Revelations
Well, one would expect ollaimh to be confused. Probably never had a rational thought in his body.

I've known hundreds of priests in my lifetime, and a few of them were accused of molesting children - maybe as many as 20. I knew nothing about any sexual misconduct of any priest, until the accusations were published in the newspaper.

Child sexual abuse is a very difficult crime to detect. It is a crime committed in utmost secrecy. And those secrets are kept for decades, sometimes forever.
