A landmark case is being tried in Philadelphia with the purpose of holding accountable in the US for the first time a Roman Catholic Church official for his handling of the sex abuse complaints made against more than 60 priests.
The testimony being elicited after 8 years of investigation and 2 grand juries is as appalling as expected. Grammar school children raped, reports of abuse ignored for decades, the transfer of known offenders from one parish to the next.
Child molesters returned to work with children, monsters provided fresh hunting grounds.
The church abandoned the most vulnerable of its charges. What justice may come out of this is long, long overdue.
