Dog Bites Tail
John McGuinness bites the bullet on the whole scandal-in-the-Church thing:
"The current scandals were caused by abusing priests, and bishops' failure to effectively deal with them, not by those who oppose you on your pet issue."
Here's a brain-teaser for ya, John. Why did the priests abuse the children, and why did their bishops fail to deal with them? Got an answer for that one? How about... oh, a loss of virtue. You know, the kind that is usually accompanied by that list of things you write off as "BS."
But don't feel bad. You're not the only one who blew off the symptoms of the larger problem. That's why we get to bitch about it now.
