← [UPDATE] Priest sex abuse scandal was temporary problem, study finds

El Bastardo's Avatar Jump to comment 5 by El Bastardo

I saw some of this on the news earlier and nearly choked. First, it wasn't a big problem, then it was jsut gay sex, not child abuse, now it's the hippies fault?

Dang liberal hippy priests.

Seriously though, do they think that people aren't aware that this is endemic within the church? That this was happening in many countries across the globe? There was no "permissive culture" in Ireland in the 60's,

It's only a matter of time before they try th old "Devil made me do it" defense.

Of course, sill nothing approaching an apology.
