The Catholic Church has spent at least $10.6 million lobbying against legislation that gives sexual abuse victims more time to seek justice in courts ― and thatís in the Northeast alone, according to a new report.

Church funds have gone toward attempts to oppose statute-of-limitations reform in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island between 2011 and 2018, the report released by four law firms on Tuesday suggested.

they get due process like everyone else.

the church doesn't put, literally, hundreds of hunters in our areas. within 25 miles of my house there are hundreds.

I feel that id we stop that ideology first then the church ones will follow quickly.

Well, just for the record, many of us are opposed to extending the statute of limitations for this or any other crime (keeping in mind that the statute varies greatly from state to state).

What I am in favor of is removing any tactics at cover-up and making priests and ministers (we have a new ministerial case right here in the Phoenix area) just as liable for punishment as anyone else. And anyone in the church who helps in a cover-up should be convicted, as well.

Well, if history is any indicator, when it comes to lobbying in general, the church can probably make this problem 'go away'...but its also probably going to cost much more than $10.6 M too!

With social media, it's getting harder and harder to make things like this go away.
