One thought on “What the Catholic Church Would Do If It Was Really Serious About Child Abuse

  1. The religious similarities of the Church and of the Bais Din, seem to still live in the dark ages when it comes to domestic violence issues and men in their flock who are taunting women or children.

    It’s an age old problem, that is still very much relevant today. After all, it’s “tradition”.

    How far are we to obey and to whom are we obeying too? For me, it took me looking down the barrel of a gun to make that decision. That’s how far it took for me. http://balladofphilipfishelcohen.blogspot.com/2014/07/the-war-of-domestic-violence-and.html
