Bishop Nicholas A. DiMarzio of Brooklyn repeated a warning this week that he has leveled at lawmakers for months: If the statute of limitations on child sex-abuse lawsuits is temporarily lifted, as pending state legislation proposes... his Roman Catholic diocese and others will go bankrupt. [Full article here.]Did you catch that? He's saying there are so many pedophile priests in his diocese that if every person (usually children) who was abused by the church was allowed to have their day in court -- then the church would go bankrupt.
Seriously, why is ANYONE still a Catholic knowing what we know now about the extent of the abuse perpetrated by the church!? Why not just become an Episcopalian? Just think of Episcopalianism as Catholicism without all the pedophilia.
