Father Benedict Groeschel: Really?

Article. But I’m sure if you follow the news  you’ve already heard about it.

I’m not afraid to admit that the clergy abuse is one of the major things keeping me from going back to the Church fully. This is the point where some well-meaning Catholic jumps in and says: “Wherever you have humans, you will have sin!”

Yeah, I get that, thanks.

The systematic prevalence and covering up of child abuse by an organization, however, is not just the sin of one individual happening in a vacuum. It has to be chalked up to more than that and these little quips about “wherever you have humans, you will have sin” don’t quite cut it I’m afraid.
