    So if the news report is accurate, two Catholic boys had been sexually assaulted. One of the boys denied it ever happened, but his mother was "suspicious." The other boy was a Catholic 8th grader who didn't have a clue about the meaning of the 6th Commandment. He is also the only witness to the assault on the boy who denied it ever happened. The story stinks, but the jury fell for it. This is too convenient. I wonder if Pope Francis still thinks the Church is too "obsessed" with sexual sins.
