You jumped in bed with the mainstream media faster than Bill Clinton with an intern when the media decided to focus on the Roman Catholic Church. You provided the media a staunch ally as the story was blown way out of proportion. Most of you sat idly by as the Pope was demeaned by lies and half-truths.
Well, your ally, the secular media, has turned on you. Now, you're in their sights. And you really have no one to blame but yourself.
"The unmarked graves of 40 children from a Protestant residential institution have been discovered in a Dublin cemetery. They contain the bodies of former residents of the Bethany home in Rathgar and date from 75 years ago.
A group of survivors, who say they suffered gross neglect there, are demanding access to the state's redress scheme, which applies to similar institutions. Bethany was a combined maternity and children's home and a place of detention for women convicts.
According to recently discovered records, the infant residents were buried in Mount Jerome cemetery between 1935 and 1936. On average, more than one in 10 babies died each month. A researcher, Niall Meehan, has established the names of all 40 babies in and around two adjoining common graves."
"The North Elbian Evangelical Lutheran Church said it is investigating allegations of sexual abuse by a pastor, who is now retired. The man is alleged to have sexually abused several young people in a congregation in Ahrensburg.
The allegations come during a scandal of sexual abuse by clergy that has hit the Catholic Church in Germany. A recent ecumenical church convention in Munich heard calls for reform and greater transparency in the Catholic Church to deal with what has been called a crisis of confidence.
Protestant leaders, however, have acknowledged their churches are also caught up in the scandal."
