  • “If nothing else, Cardinal Law is a great name for the TV movie that will inevitably be made about this.”

  • “Just because a cardinal is in a position of power and trust doesn't mean we should hold him to the same standards of basic human decency as the rest of us.”

  • “As long as these priests admit wrongdoing and ask for forgiveness, God will reward them in the afterlife with all the little boys they could want.”

  • “These plaintiffs should ask themselves if justice is worth the risk of excommunication.”

    Dianne Weston –
