Priest talks about the cover-up of pedophilia within the Catholic church.

It’s strange.  A Catholic commenter recently assured me that, in talking about the problem of protecting pedophiles in the Catholic church, that I, “missed the last 20 years worth of changes in Canon Law, which have led to the *first* thing Catholics do when a priest is accused, is call the police.”

However, Rev. Thomas P. Doyle, O.P. is a priest who tells a very different story.

It turns out that the Catholic church leaders saying they’ll start calling the police on child-raping priests is tantamount to politicians telling us they’ll stop lying.  After having your trust abused enough times, you must believe the actions are telling the truth, not the words.
