Prosecutors in several states are finding an important loophole in the statutes of limitations that stops them from charging priests with sexual abuse that occurred decades ago.

For once the courts are working for the victims.

Thanks Babs, important article

If we do not live what we believe, then we will begin to believe what we live.

Thanks so much for this article. I have forwarded it on to my attorney. My Church (Presbyterian) is taking the stand that I needed to "report" the crime at the time it happened. SHIT .... The perp told me that it was "therapy" and I believed him. It wasn't until 10 years after he raped me that I realized that it was RAPE.
