If you object to "scapegoat" what description would you prefer? fall guy? pawn?

The convicted. Who do you claim has made him a scapegoat? The CC or the state? Both?

You're picking at details here.

Not at all. Whether or not this particular priest is a scapegoat is what's under discussion, no?

We want the entire RCC to collapse, so don't act surprised.

By persuasion and using reason, I would have thought.

Bravo a few priest are going to jail.

What's your magic bullet? You dont think that a successful prosecution in a case such as this might spur other prosecutors to be bring similar charges in other states?

We'd rather the entire corporation be shut down.

I'd rather those who commit criminal offences are called to account in courts of law. The corporation is on its way out anyway.
