keep dropping the cash in the collection plate

"Lawyers for more than 500 victims of sexual abuse by Roman Catholic clergy members say they are on the verge of settling their lawsuits against the Archdiocese of Los Angeles for as much as $650 million."


We've got lawyers to pay. I'm not sure why they get to make a settlement.  Should the scum and scum who protected them be in jail?

“Where can you take that check and cash it that will make you 10 years old again?”

What are the church's big accomplishments in the US in the last 20 years?  I mean beyond a massive conspiracy to protect thousands of child molesters what have they done?

Personally, I'd like to know how Law got to be a Cardinal.

It's a civil lawsuit for damages. Different from criminal charges. As far as I know, the only priests that got close to criminal charges were whisked away from the US to Italy where they are under the protection of the Vatican, which has not received any extradition requests, but if they did it's unlikely they'd comply.

So why no charges filed otherwise?

Beats me. Good question to ask your state representatives.

Since 1987... well Pope John Paul II did have some involvement in bringing down communism supposedly.

Other than that, well they run homeless shelters, soup kitchens, provide medical care to the destitute, run charity hospitals, that sort of thing.

Wow, Law gets $12,000 spending money and all his expenses are paid for including the ostentatious palace he has been given to live in.

Organizing pedophilia pays a lot better than the career counselors told me. I shouldn't have gotten this economics degree.
