The Boston globe was the first mention it, and the next day all hell broke out in our media. Personally I was surprised it took so long to come out in print in the US media.

So the press wanted "to hide the ugly underbelly" of the abuse scandal?

...do I hear the whirring of black helicopters...

Cue the twilight zone theme.

Brilliant! Yes, it is "hard core" child abuse.

We're all certainly entitled to our opinions as to what may motivate the U.S. media. The RC Bishops were steadfastly opposed to the pro-government funded abortion "Obama care" bill and put considerable pressure on Congress to defeat it. The sudden timing and highlighting of the abuse scandal by an overwhelming liberal media is quite extraordinary to say the least. There can be little doubt that the pro-abort crowd is guarding the rice bowl.

It's the catholic's attempts to cover up for the rapist priests. The Vatican has condemned the homosexual behavior of others? That's wonderful!

The issue of abortion is really what all this flap is really about. The only reason the abuse scandal is being discussed in most web forums is simply due to the media attention.

Doesn't it seem odd that the media chose to highlight the issue in the midst of the health care debate? The Pope and Cardinals are on the target roster of the main stream liberals (both inside and outside the RCC) due to their conservative stance on abortion.
The boys are raped at a young age and have to deal with the trauma for the rest of their lives. The church leaders keep such affairs secret and attempt to provide protection for rapist priests. By doing so the catholic church shows a lack of integrity and disrespect for those who were abused. The catholic church is at the bottomn of the barrel of hypocritical morals.

I'm really not trying to attack you or RC Church...just laying out my own casual observation of the abuse scandal.



Yes. Would part of this advancement into the twenty first century have anything to do with relaxing abortion restrictions?



Is the Holy Spirit unable to move through the Pope and Cardinals as well?



I must be touching a nerve with you...why else would you deflect from my point?

I simply stated that abortion is the reason that the scandal is being highlighted by the mainstream liberal media.



LOL! You see absolutely no collusion between the European liberal media and the American liberal media? LOL!



How true. So why all the media attention all of a sudden?
Maybe you should go visit some political forums
