More Zero Tolerance Stupidity

By defining so narrowly what constitutes “abuse”, a jerk like Fr. Cliff Garner, who treats his flock with contempt and shouldn’t be a priest, gets the kid glove treatment while his betrayed and rightly outraged flock gets scoldings from some monsignor for daring to vent the fact that they feel betrayed and outraged. Choicest quote from Fr. Cliff Garner to his flock: “[A]t the end of the meeting, Cliff had the final opportunity to speak and gave a very arrogant speech in which he told all the parents, ‘And I’ll be watching you.” Oh, but he’s not abusive or anything. Abuse only means “sex with minors.”
