Thread Name: BS: Clerical Abuse of Children
Subject: RE: BS: Catholic Abuse of Children
Firstly Joe, I am not blaming you personally for any of this, you just happen to be the person who is trying to defend the catholic church. This is not a discussion about you but an attempt to bring to light the abuses of your faith.
Mary Rose McCall was just 16 Joe, most children of that age are somewhat naive. She had been abused by a High School Teacher and her husband, people she probably perceived as being in a position of authority, I believe she desperately needed helped.
What did the priest do ........... he gave her absolution, did that help her, she says not.
Reading the next paragraph I am not sure whether she became pregnant through this abuse. She says "I was a child who had a child"
Could the priest have done more, I think he could and should. He was aware that a serious crime had been committed but he said nought. Now in some legislatures that makes him an accessory.
