Since the bulk of that thread was written there has of course been the ground-breaking admission by the church in the USA (Los Angeles) that abuse occurred and that compensation would be paid.
But of course it isn't just the Catholic Church. I was raised a Presbyterian and was abused by a Scout leader who helped out with the troop sponsored by our church. When I wrote to the local church last year to urge vigilance, do you think I got a reply? Nope. I heard from sources back home that the church session circled the wagons and prepared for a lawsuit, which was never my intention and would never have succeeded in any case, since the statute of limitations had long since expired and the perp himself has been dead for more than a decade.
