The costs of sexual abuse in the LA Archdiocese may cost up to $1.5 billion. http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=st...buse_california
Isn't it amazing how much it will cost an institution because of their complete and utter failure to deal with hard issues such as sexual abuse?
If these cases were isolated to a few priests here and there or one or two Diocese, that would be one thing, but it sure looks like the grand coverup and failure of the last several hundred years.
I am Catholic myself and this completely calls into question the value of the "Church".
Just my thoughts anyway.
