    that it is ok for the Catholic heirarchy to hide child rapes, but Not for Penn State to do so.  Purely based upon the power of the institution.  

    As my father used to say,"We have the best government money can buy."

      And even from the dkos community, it has seemed to me that the fight against Penn State was taken on with a lot more enthusiasm than any of the battle cries against the Catholic Church. There again, many of the members of this community are Catholic, so that confrontation remains tempered.

      (Wouldn't want to offend anyone belonging to a formidable force.)

      •  6ZON, this is a question of criminality (1+ / 0-)

        I would think that good catholic people, if they are fair and just, would want to see the criminality weeded out of the hierarchy.

        Those who come on this site, like TofG and spew Bill Donohue talking points, are simply trolls.  Pure and simple.  There are many good catholic people who are as horrified as the rest of this.
