  • Who on earth advised the Cathoiic Church to run this argument?
    Legally lost (but doubtless arguable)
    PR disaster as was surely predictable from day one.
    Christ, don't they get what they deserve?

  • Praise GOD for an answer to heartfelt prayer. . . Ex. 22:22-23: “Ye shall not afflict any widow, or fatherless child. If thou afflict them in any wise, and they cry at all unto me, I will surely hear their cry . ."
    I was ecstatic to learn that the VICTIMS/SURVIVORS of Roman Catholic Clergy Abuse in the UK may yet have their day in court. Though in truth . . what the victims of clergy abuse have lost can never be regained, some are able to find closure by holding their perpetrators accountable and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Victims are vindicated when they see judgment pronounced upon the Abuser and the penalty / sentence for their heinous crimes imposed by the Judge meted out. Victims of abuse are vindicated when compensatory damages are rewarded for pain and suffering, along with the mental anguish they have endured, and the costs associated with therapy they have borne.
    Thankfully this unseemly legal maneuver employed by the RC “church” to protect their assets and obstruct justice for the Victims by denying them recourse through the courts of the land has been rejected. I thank God that this Judge did the right thing in ruling favorably for the Victims, because as the Roman Catholic “church” has demonstrated time and time again, unless compelled to do so, they will not do the right thing! Finally the scales of justice are being tipped in favor of the Victims!
    Though prosecution of RC Clergy Abusers appears to be the exception rather than the rule, we can thank God that in this matter the just and righteous cause of the Victims has been furthered.
    In solidarity with the VICTIMS / SURVIVORS of Roman Catholic clergy abuse, JuneAnnette

  • Is there no depth to which the catholic church will not sink to avoid responsibility of the most heinous crime of all - that of child abuse - the total betrayal of trust and brutalisation of children.
    There are no excuses.
