Same Old Power Addiction

The Vatican clerics have responded to the outrage of the faithful who were raped by priests as children or whose children have been raped by priests by calling them "anti Catholic" and dismissing their protests as "gossip."

This is very human behavior. In every age and nation the powerful have clung to power by falsely accusing their opponents of any kind of wickedness they can dream up and by callously dismissing their criticisms. Yup, underneath their fancy attire lurk the same old miserable, lying specimens of homo sapiens we can find in government and many corporate boardrooms. We have met the enemy and it is us.

This is not my fight but I am curious to know exactly how much disgusting, criminal and abusive behavior the faithful are willing to swallow. Can this hierarchy represent Jesus? I have always thought better of Him.
