Repugnance and Tattling

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.

  1. In Catholic Elementary School in the 50s, the worst mortal sin in the universe was SCANDAL ( read being a tattletale). If you said anything BAD about a priest, nun, or the church, you created SCANDAL and, of course would burn in Hell, plus your crime was worse than the origional crime/sin.

  2. The Catholic church has now become one of the most evil institutions on the planet.

  3. Ah yes! Tattling = scandal in the Catholic church. It creates a great deal of silence and fear. If you are trained enough to know better than to create scandal, you surely won’t tattle, even if you are hurt.
