Yeah this is despicable. The Governing body of the Catholic Church as a whole has never found a way to help survivors. Their history is horrible at helping the same monsters that hurt so many kids. You cannot sweep that under the carpet. Lobbying of this nature is just more of the same and brands them further as unconcerned for survivors.

I have taken to the stand-up comedy stage to educate other male survivors and those who try to love them. I blog about my isolated religious upbringing where physical and sexual abuse were commonplace and I serve as a facilitator of a weekly support group for men who have suffered sexual assault.

I thought that fights for power and money at the expense of humanity is modern global corporation's job not church's. I guess I was wrong. Seriously I wonder what socioeconomic framework has allowed "cannibalistic" institution operating under religious cover. I can't think other on my church as institution when read such stories.
i could argue freedom of religion, as i ritually sacrifice children to tlaloc. "Common rites carried out during ceremonies were sacrifices of children, whose crying was considered beneficial for obtaining rain, since the tears of new-born children, being strictly connected with the Tlalocan, were pure and precious." http://archaeology.about.com/od/tterms/a/Tlaloc.htm
