Thread Name: BS: Clerical Abuse of Children
Subject: RE: BS: Catholic Abuse of Children
My "broad brush statement" was my opinion, which I respectfully set alongside Joe Offer's. Oh, and I qualified it. Perhaps your computer has gone all dicky on you and truncated my post. So here it is again, with my qualification in bold:

"Well I'm certain that it's abuse. It is thoroughly disrespectful and it reveals that the children were regarded as being without value. Right, you can't groom a dead child or cause it emotional damage any more, but that lack of respect and that lack of valuing are both solid hallmarks of all child abusers."

Glad to clear that up for you. Alternatively, I suggest that, if you have nothing constructive to say, just keep quiet.
