Laws Without Morals

Like the Catholic Church sex abuse scandal, the Penn State abuse scandal has drawn national attention.

​Personal loyalties aside, most of us are outraged that those charged with the care of children chose to abandon the most vulnerable of such children in the face of evil.

​We teach our children to report abuse to a trustworthy adult…and report it to the next adult and the next, until someone responds. Here, apparently, no trustworthy adult could be found.

​Instead, the facts suggest the overriding concern by Penn State was not child welfare, but the reputation of the university, its coaches, and sports program.

​Those who facilitated child abuse by their silence and inaction would do well to review the university’s motto: “Laws without morals are in vain.”

  1. Am simply Flabbergasted, – that is the Strongest word I can think of, – that the university would use such lofty words as: “Laws without morals are in vain.”

    Maybe its founders meant it. But from what I have read, its present officials would be Unworthy even to Mouth these words.
