Subject: RE: BS: And yet more abusing priests (Ireland)
Ah, Peter, it's not wise to stop asking questions. If you don't ask the questions, you don't learn the answers. I did not place any blame on anyone for not reporting the crimes - I just wanted to know why they were not reported, what conditions made it difficult for the crimes to be reported. You gave a pretty good answer, but I had to ask the question several times before I got an answer that began to satisfy me. And still, I think there's more of an answer to be had.
I am imagining that many a good parish priest did listen, and did try to do the right thing - only to have the matter hushed up at a higher level.
