The Irish Times - Thursday, March 11, 2010CATHOLIC BISHOP of Elphin Christopher Jones has accused the media of being unfair and unjust to the Catholic Church through a concentration on the handling by church authorities of the clerical child sex-abuse issue.
Could I just say with all this emphasis on cover-up, the cover-up has gone on for centuries, not just in the church Its going on today in families, in communities, in societies. Why are you singling out the church? he asked.
Bishop says media 'unfair and unjust'
The media are bugging them ? I don't think so. If anything the media are going easy on the RCC. If the pressure was really being brought on the RCC officials would be screaming.
This latest spin is that we were not the only group abusing children. Yes, but the RCC was in a very unusual position of trust within society and took advantage of this. These cult leaders cannot be christians by any way. How is this behaviour in any way following christian teachings ? They are acting like political or corporate leaders with damage limitation to save their own skins above all else.
First they ask their followers to bale them out and now they are trying to shift blame to anybody but the RCC. They are having a laugh or what ?
Meanwhile the victims/survivors of RCC crimes against humanity are having to live with the knowledge that their attackers/abusers were mostly not brought to justice.
