Predators at bay in Connecticut
The Church has issued a letter to its Connecticut parishioners declaring that the law would put "all Church institutions, including your parish, at risk" and that it would "undermine the mission of the Catholic Church in Connecticut, threatening our parishes, our schools, and our Catholic Charities." Gosh -- all the Church's insti-tutions in the state and everything it does would be endangered by making it easier for molestation victims to sue? Those closets must be even more bulging with skeletons than we thought!
This letter, and another official statement meant to be read out during Sunday Mass, urge parishioners to contact the legislature and oppose the bill. Let's hope that the Catholic laity have seen the reality of their warped priesthood and will disobey.
