Secondly, to point out how diffficult it is for victims of such abuse to come forward since there are costs for doing so as this story makes clear. Finally, to engender a bit of compassion and sympathy on all our parts through the acknowledgement that these are painful events for all concerned: victim, victim's family, and the faith community.

      Because I thought it could mitigate the feelings of being upset so many Catholics are experiencing about the abusive Priests that have been caught so far.

      I hope EVERY Catholic, Priest or laity, who is aware of either a homosexual Priest, or one who is sympathetic towards them or in favour of same-sex marriage, takes positive action and makes EVERY one of their names known.
      The many good Priests I know need have no fear of this.
