So...hmmm? It might not be "all or nothing" thinking that invites us to attach responsibility to every priest as they defend the Catholic church.

What are thousands of victims and their struggles when weighed against the millions that might certainly benefit?
Perhaps, throwing out the notion that sexual predators can be healed in an audience and population looking first for their own salvation might be like sitting down for the first visit with your therapist and them saying, "Okay.
