    Please. I too read this as perhaps just too old to decipher in a modern context. But if this was going on and managed at all in any way the Bishops were handling abusers in the Catholic Church, moving them around or otherwise protecting them and the institution from fall-out, then that's a bombshell.

    If the Boy Scouts were just trying to "manage it from within" and remove abusers, or just keeping cautionary files, or things short of filing police reports or contacting parents, then it's a different color, but still way over the line of being acceptable from an institution charged with protecting our kids. I just want more context is all.

    And it took me three paragraphs to ask........... sheez.......... sorry............
