wounded healers

The Washington Times picked up the story Dom mentioned about an alleged sex abuse ring in the Archdiocese of Washington:

The law firm last night faxed the diocese the eight demands. "One or two [victims] went and had meetings with subsidiary officials who listened, thanked them and that was it," Mr. Gillon said in an interview last night. "There was no response. Others were offered -- when they demanded it -- therapy. One who requested psychiatric treatment was directed to a priest or a church-funded therapist who, at the end of the session, hit on him.

Ah well, at least we know he has ongoing formation.

    "A priest or a church funded therapist", my the papers know how to slander and obfuscate. It seems like things are really bleak out there , but I think it is rather important to have some facts when a person reports on a story.
