Apologies for the non-postings--stories began exploding, namely the Orange diocese sex-abuse scandal.
Most blogging concerns itself with politics, whether concentrating on the left or right. When it comes to the rape of children, the blogosphere really doesn't seem to give a damn. The only people who care are those directly affected by or the reporters--such as myself--who have seen the Light--and the Light is wicked.
The apathy with which so many of my friends and peers greet the Catholic Church sex-abuse scandal is appalling. One professor claimed it is a conspiracy by Protestants, a conspiracy dating back to the day of the Pilgrims. Another friend criticizes me for not concentrating on the "good" that the Church does (she's a catechism teacher). Others just don't give a damn about anything. And the vast majority of parishioners consider it a thing of the past. "Let bygones be bygones" goes the sentiment.
Problem is, this is the Roman Catholic Church. Bygones are never bygones here. The repercussions of this will reverb across the Catholic world for decades to come. And, of course, no one will care.
