“Priests were raping little boys and little girls” – A long awaited report finds over 300 predator priests sexually abused over a 1,000 children in Pennsylvania.
… “systematic” coverup effort by church leaders over 70 years.
… Most of the victims were boys; but there were girls too. Some were teens; many were pre-pubescent. Some were manipulated with alcohol or pornography. Some were made to masturbate their assailants, or were groped by them. Some were raped orally, some vaginally, some anally. But all of them were brushed aside, in every part of the state, by church leaders who preferred to protect the abusers and their institution above all.

How can anyone in good conscience continue to support the catholic church as an institution? To continue to attend services pretending all is well? To give money to them that will be used to cover up such crimes and pay off victims?
