Several years ago, just after the Boston Globe blew the lid off this scandal, the Archdiocese of Washington decided to hold meetings in various parishes to "discuss" this with concerned area Catholics. I went to the first one at St Raphael's in Rockville, MD. The archdiocesan panel did their best at damage control - the poor dears! They tried to tell us that pedophilia in the general population wasn't a homosexual problem. We reminded them that the topic of concern wasn't sex abuse as found in the general population, but as it was occurring in the Roman Catholic clergy - and that was 90% homosexual in nature. They then told us that the problem wouldn't cost the church any money, that insurance would cover the settlements. We then pointed out that insurance premiums would skyrocket, and thus would cost the Church a pretty penny. In short, we blew to smithereens the archdiocese's attempt at damage control. That "first" meeting at St Raphael's turned out to also be the last! So I can relate well to this Real Catholic presentation.
