What Took Them So Long?

Before you read any further you should click here and read this article.  "The Catholic archdiocese of Melbourne is defrocking every priest convicted of sexual offences against children."

Can you name me any other profession where someone who breaks a law connected with their job is allowed to continue doing the job?  Police convicted of behaving unethically are no longer allowed to be in the police force, are they?

I wonder if they are going to do anything about the priests that were convicted of abuse but still buried with full priestly honours?  This one in particular, Kevin O'Donnell?

I could go on for hours and hours about how badly the Catholic Church has handled the whole issue of abuse, but it has already been done for me in a book called Hell On The Way To Heaven.  It is truly eye-opening.  Well worth the read.  Although probably best not to read it in one sitting like I did, it's not a 'happy' book by any means.

If you. or someone you know, is/was a victim of black collar crime, a good place to start is the Broken Rites website.  Don't let them keep getting away with this!
