    Great article.

    Yes, but the fact remains that there is one significant difference in the Church than in most other cases we know about. The Penn State case is one of the few in which there seems to have been a measured and systemic cover up by a number of people. Though to what extent they actually knew, we still don’t know. In most other cases, if there is cover up at all, it may only involve a single administrator or individual. Only in the Church’s cases do we get the impression that there were multiple priests accused over long periods of time, with numerous individuals doing what they could to cover up the crimes. That stands along, at least at this point. And it is what separates the Church’s cases from just about any others I’ve read about.
