“In the early years of the sex abuse scandal in Milwaukee, retired Archbishop Rembert G. Weakland says in his soon-to-be released memoir, he did not comprehend the potential harm to victims or understand that what the priests had done constituted a crime.”
Confronted by a pedo-priest, I was fourteen years old in 1966 and I knew that child molestation was a crime, but an Archbishop of the Catholic Church in the 1990’s did not, right? And he didn’t think it would do any damage to the victims, right? So he reassigned pedo-priests over and over again to prey on the children of the Diocese.
And today he is a free man, publishing his memoirs, honored by the religious community.
This is the type of thing that causes revulsion to well up within me to the point of explosion. It is so sick, so twisted, such an insult to decency and morality, and yet this bag of pus is considered by many to be a “man of God.”
