I was struck by two stories today: A priest with porn and a survivor tackling tattling
The first shows the true fallacy that is the John Jay Report. Kansas City-St. Joseph diocese officials knew they had a priest in possession of tons of child abuse images (child porn) when an IT specialist found the images and told the diocese in December 2010. Diocese officials made a copy of the photos (???) and then kept quiet for 6 months. Now, they say they are “deeply saddened.” I think they are just sad they got busted.
The second was Joelle Casteix’s post today about how we inadvertently train our children to turn a blind eye to wrongdoing. I can’t help but think that it was the Catholic Church who first told people that tattling was wrong.
