Its a sad fact that in all walks of life there are those who prey on people. Wherever you find positions of trust or responsibility, there is a possibility to find someone willing to take advantage of people in a position of weakness or need.
I guess some would say its human nature, I prefer to think of it as the continuing sickening of society.
Whilst I concede the catholic church seems to be getting all the press, and I do not doubt for 1 second the veracity of the claims, a sad, disillusioned part of me wonders if other institutions are just better at silencing people or covering it up.
Mr Happy, great question, and I hope it makes people think and ask questions themselves.
