Scandal April 6, 2010

It’s all over the news, and I’ve felt as though I didn’t know how to say what I wanted to say.

Lerin at Beautiful Chaos says it beautifully.

Abuse is wrong.

When people in authority take advantage of the ones in their care, that is wrong.

When people expect their leaders to be perfect and blindly trust them to be sinless, that is wrong.

When abuse is covered up or explained away, that is wrong.

Abuse has been a part of humanity in all times, places and churches, and it has always been and always will be WRONG.

I pray that the Catholic Church will take this seriously and make the changes that need to happen.
