  •  Here's our spin (5+ / 0-)

    Just as the church knowingly and shamefully protected predator priests, allowing more children to be harmed, so the House Republicans knowingly and shamefully protected Foley, allowing more children to be harmed.

    And in fact, it's not just spin.  It's literal.  Both organizations are the ultimate in good old boy networks.

      Buchanan just told Matthews that the Catholic Church had a problem with homosexuals, not pedophiles!

      This is not a confusing issue. The law is clear. Very clear. When an adult has sexual contact with a minor, it is a CRIME. When an adult preys on young children and molests them, that adult is a pedophile.
      The priests who molested young boys were pedophiles. Period. What the priests did has nothing to do with homosexuality. The priests abused their power,trust and authority. They were criminals and should have been dealt with in the courts not by the cardinals.
