Avenging Altar Boy - NYTimes.com

This is an article about R. Seth Williams, the District Attorney in Philadelphia who has laid charges not only against some predator priests, but also against the diocesan official who did not remove them from ministry but simply moved them to other parishes (where they sadly found more victims to abuse). I note that he is a practicing Catholic and sees his actions as aiding the Church in ridding itself of these abusers and their enablers.

  1. I think I like this guy. But just wait -- someone, somewhere, is gonna claim that he's being "anti-Catholic." Wait for it...

    Lady Janus:
    Where will we go to find such a claim and by whom ? Do you mean the Taliban?

  3. He's doing his job. Nothing spectacular about that. I don't think any Catholic should overlook an abusive cleric and they should be charged like any other sexual predator taking advantage of a position of authority, be they priest, doctor, teacher or scout leader. That said, I'll reserve my judgement on the guilt of the accused until judgement is passed.

  4. @Larry: Oh, dear; do I really need to put a label on my comments when I use sarcasm...? Sorry, I thought it would be obvious.

  5. How long do you two figure we'll be waiting for someone to come along and tar this lawyer as being anti-catholic?

    Cheers

    Lady Janus : I know you were. You're slowing down.
