← Girls Beaten and Raped? Or The Catholic Church? Who are the victims?

"I think it might be worthwhile separating those who are truly guilty, the church royalty, and the followers of the RCC. I'm not defending the beliefs of the followers, but the vast majority of believers are not the problem."

Unfortunately, the believers are the problem. Do you think that American politicians would otherwise care about offending some religious despot and his cronies? It's the same old issue of the religious moderates providing cover and tacit support for the crimes against humanity perpetrated by extremist religious elements. Although it's likely that most catholics have a more liberal view than the catholic hierarchy, few of them would ever be openly critical about what church leaders have to say.
