"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:On our shores, "The US Supreme Court declined Monday to hear an appeal by the Vatican for immunity in a high-profile pedophilia cased" — Setback for Vatican in key US pedophilia case. This lawyer "wants to put the Pope on trial and [whom] the Supreme Court just gave... the go ahead to sue the Vatican," Terry Nelson of Abbey Roads reminds us, "has long been condemned for his anti-Catholic lawsuits to bring down the Church and enrich himself in the process" — Peter in chains.

"It's All About the Chilren . . rallying the troops against the Church"

Nice observation.

I read through a good number of the posts including the more interesting ones following the John Allen article linked to at the bottom of the Rod Dreher article.

I was surprised at the consistency of the hatred aimed at the Church while those who actually committed the sexual abuse where almost never mentioned.

Most Belgians believe that the Belgian establishment harbors nasty pedophile rings, that, in the past, were protected by the cops, and about which they will never know the truth. This is as prominent in their psyche as are doubts about Dallas in November 1963 amog Americans, if not more so.

Add to this that Belgium's recently retired Cardinal had been a Cardinal Mahoney on steroids, and a bishop who had been a close ally had just been exposed as a repeat pedophile, and I think the police were right to err on the side of caution, if that is what they did.

The Dutroux case is one of the most disturbing crime stories I've read. The same author also addressed the latest raids at

I've read Alexandra Cohen's other piece. I almost cannot believe them. If they are true, the Church is really infiltrated by Satan.

In such cases, the abuse is not about sex, but rather about making oneself complicit in absolute evil, just as the mafia has aspirants "make their bones"; and this is what drove the more career-minded rings of abusers in the church.
