Sexual abuse, entertainment industry, the Catholic Church

In reference to a story about the sexual abuse of minors that is rampant in the entertainment industry this is what one doctor had to say.

“This is just like the Catholic Church pretending that priests never molested people in the past,” said Dr. Daniel D. Broughton, a pediatrician at the Mayo Clinic and expert on child sexual abuse. “What’s surprising to me is why it hasn’t come out even stronger and sooner.”

Because of the way the Catholic Church hid the sin and crime of sexual abuse this quote is now a representation of the reputation of the Church.   So on behalf of good priests everywhere I say to the hierarchy, “Thank you.  Thank you very much for creating and then spreading the poison of abuse that now taints every priest.  Thank you very much!”  Jackass’s!!!

I am a Roman Catholic priest ordained for the Diocese of Wilmington, DE who is also a victim of clergy sexual abuse. I am often angered by the insensitiviy and hostility of other clergy, the hierarchy and the so-called people-of-God. If clergy, bishops included, really and truly understood abuse, (any kind of abuse), I would not feel the need to blog on occasion. It is very frustraing.
