Clergy abuse victim

One of the more prominent victims of sexual abuse by a priest, Patrick McSorley, has apparently killed himself this week.

I think the best summary of this situation is what Andrew Sullivan had to say about it, “some scars never heal“. No, some never do, you either learn to live with them, or they kill you. Unfortunately for Patrick, the scars got the best of him.

  1. This sad event on the heels of the Vatican’s pronouncement that Americans are being too hard on these priests. The Church says since they can no longer keep an eye on abusers once they’ve been forced to leave the priesthood that children are safer if priests are allowed to remain despite being abusers.

    YOu know, my tax money goes to fund SEVERAL very nice facilities where these abusive priests can rot.

    I’m just disgusted.
