The story below in the Comments section is crazy.

I'm not Catholic but there isn't any point in calling their Church out on this. There are sick people in this world that get involved in all types of organizations. The BSA has done a lot of good in the world and it's sad that the organization will be tarnished because of the bad choices of a few people not reporting these terrible incidences.

"I'm not Catholic but there isn't any point in calling their Church out on this."

Uh, not sure where you've been but the catholic church leadership has been just as complicit in this kind of coverup as the BSA leadership - no different than penn state leadership. I guess there was no point in them being "called out" either?

I stand by my statement. You shouldn't blame an entire organization and it's people for the wrong doings of a few.

Where is that sentiment in the US embassy thread lol :)
I don't see where I lumped in the membership of these organizations - unless you count the leaders to represent all members which would be a small organization indeed

"I don't see where I lumped in the membership of these organizations" I think it's in the title which entails the all encompassing phrase "Catholics". I'm not here to fight though, just express opinions. Carry on.
