Today I sent this out in a private email to a few people and thought I’d share it here…
It’s a video that I actually thought was well done — it’s about the HORRIFIC priest abuse issue:
(I especially liked how he closed out the video…)
If you have older kids and decide to watch it with them, there are just a couple things you might add that I wish Fr. Mike would’ve covered:
- In ANY population group there are mostly good, but always a few bad, and sometimes VERY bad people. Whether it’s black or white people, Protestant Christians, Catholic Christians, Muslims or Jews, those who are heterosexual or homosexual, priests or laity (anyone non-ordained), no matter WHAT group we’re talking about, this is the case. And in the 1960’s and 1970’s some really really bad men got into Catholic seminaries and EVIL worked its way into the Church.
- Some may disagree (??) but it’s my opinion that whether they are the abuser OR the one who did not turn them in to police immediately, if they are PROVEN guilty, they should spend the rest of their lives in JAIL.
If you’d like to share your thoughts and can do so respectfully, comment below.
God bless you all!
