Pederast Priests and Buggering Bishops

Sexual abuse is endemic in the Catholic priesthood. Cover-ups and downplays continue – despite papal denunciations. That church needs to go beyond denunciations and apologies and restitutions; it needs to uncover the causes of such prevalent practices, and address those causes. This is just as we do with secular criminality; understanding and addressing the causes is part of dealing with the problem.

Do the Supremes Get Religion?

The short answer is ‘no’.

Interactions between the State (whether the Courts or the Legislature) on the one hand and spiritual or religious beliefs and requirements will always require a fine balance in a secular society. ‘Balance’ requires some delicacy in handling the scales. The Supremes should keep their judicial thumbs in their legal pockets.
