what, me worry?

By Diogenes (articles ) | Feb 21, 2005

There may be some nasty stories out there-- about ritual child abuse and murder-- and maybe it's true that prosecutors needed 2 search warrants to get cooperation from Church authorities, but we can all rest easy, knowing that the Diocese of Toledo is in full compliance with the US bishops' Charter.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    So many unanswered questions & a number of holes in the article--independent medical &/or psychological exams are routine & accusers who want their charges to be taken seriously normally submit to them. What about corroboration from the parents &/or siblings of these women? Surely some of them are still alive & could corroborate via circumstance &/or anecdote. Then there is the specter of false repressed memory. This case must be handled very well & exhaustively investigated & researched.

    Creepy story! Many decades ago, just after the defeat of Nazism, and the rise of communism in much of Europe with their attendant atrocities, my mother and many of her friends were convinced of the actual presence of Satan and his ilk throughout the world. They were dismissed as know-nothing cranks out of step with the changing Church. Fifty years later, I find more truth in these peasant fears than in the comforts of Georgetown University theologians.
