NY Times Editorial?


“There are cases of sexual abuse that come to light every day against a large number of members of the Catholic clergy. Unfortunately it’s not a matter of individual cases, but a collective moral crisis that perhaps the cultural history of humanity has never before known with such a frightening and disconcerting dimension. Numerous priests and religious have confessed. There’s no doubt that the thousands of cases which have come to the attention of the justice system represent only a small fraction of the true total, given that many molesters have been covered and hidden by the hierarchy.

Nope. Not the Slimes, not the Milwaukee JS, not the LATimes nor the Boston Glob.

That's Jos. Goebbels.

The 1 sad thing is, back then Bishops like Blessed von Galens dealt with the cases instead of covering them up like many of today's Bishops.

Another interesting parallel is that the abuse was worse elsewhere back then, esp with educators, just like it is now.
