← Let's get it straight: Irish child abuse was perpetrated by the trendy, modern post-Vatican II Catholic Church

This reminds me of the story perpetrated during the past couple of decades by the neocons and the fundamentalist churches here in Texas, that all things bad started in the 1960's/70's. They even use the same language "the let it all hang out" generation, etc., caused all of our current problems. This is also part and parcel of typical myth making, that all things bad are recent and blameable on disliked people, ideas, activities, etc., and the distant past is somehow pristine and free of sin.
