How long, O Lord?

An anchorman on CNN has revealed that he was sexually abused by the priest chaplain of his school when he was 14. It is a heart wrenching story of a vulnerable boy being preyed on. It is also the story of the havoc it wrecked in his life. May God bless Thomas Roberts for having the courage to come forward and help ensure that the bastard who did this won't do it to anyone else. May God grant healing and strength to him and the other victims of this monster in clerical garb.

Whenever I hear a story like this, I pray, "How much longer will we have to endure this?" I suspect a good deal longer. At least as long it will take the church in this country to confront the problem of predatory homosexual priests.
