Church Response To Abuse Is Weak

September 4, 2018

Editor: Despite the Catholic Church’s confession to abuse and cover-up charges, their response is weak at best. The “faithful,” the actual living Church, has the power to make them listen. Their organization is a non-profit funded by donations. Deny them these offerings. Give to youth organizations instead, The Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts or youth sports. Give to St. Jude’s hospital. Make your displeasure with them their penance. Taking their names off of buildings is not enough. History has shown that your money has been wasted in pursuit of their criminal habits and their intentions have never been to seek justice but to preserve their way of life. Seventy years in the making, see if they can last that long without your support. Ed Mattie DALLAS
