Subject: RE: BS: Clerical abuse of kids: More Revelations
Joe, a diocesan priest can be excardinated to serve in another diocese or even in another country. While far from common it is not unheard of. It seems to occur more frequently with member of religious orders than diocesan priests.

But extend the discussion to include the abuse of adults, male and female. Include those who are vulnerable, including the sick and handicapped.

I am coming to the conclusion that sexual abuse, whether by clerics, teachers, coaches, scout leaders, or anyone is caused not by a sex drive, but by a lust for and abuse of power, just a rape is.
