Smokey and Ed, no need to be so crude.

Joe, you said, But some day, there must be an end to this frenzy of anger and vengeance. The anger and vengeance must give way to rational plans to prevent such horrible crimes form happening again.

I say to you, again, if you truly want to help in bringing that about, quit honouring him by calling him that which he is no longer. There is no need to keep reminding people, some of them victims of his ilk, that he once held such a position, esp. if you purport to move on. We all know and many of us do not carry bludgeons...I truly think you are not looking beyond your own backyard. It's okay to still love your church and the individuals you work with whom you know and trust, but it's unseemly, imo, to keep on defending the RC as a whole.
