"It's All About the Children!"
The latest call rallying the troops against the Church is mentioned by a commenter to ex-Catholic (and anti-Catholic?) Rod Dreher's post justifying the events in Belgium — Why Belgian police raided the Church — decried in these stories, linked to by New Oxford Review:
- "The Vatican has stepped up its criticism of raids by Belgian police investigating alleged child sex abuse, calling the detention of priests 'serious and unbelievable'" — Vatican says Belgium raids 'worse than Communist era'.
- "Pope Benedict XVI criticised Sunday the 'regrettable methods' of Belgian police who raided a bishops' meeting as part of a paedophilia probe" — Pope criticises police methods in Belgium raid.
- "Fernand Keuleneer, lawyer for the Mechelen-Brussels archdiocese, said he had his 'doubts' over whether the authorities' actions on Thursday were legal" — Belgian church mulls legal action after paedophilia raids.
- "Peter Adriaenssens, a child psychiatrist who chaired the panel, said authorities betrayed the trust of nearly 500 victims who had made complaints over the past two months to the church panel and blamed state prosecutors for pursuing victims too traumatized to speak to police" — Belgium church panel on sex abuse shuts after raid.
