1. Former L.A. Times religious correspondent William Lobdell renounces his faith: “To see the Roman Catholic Church aiding, abetting, and facilitating paedophiles in staying undercover and unnoticed whilst they continued to rape children in their care, is enough to make one detest them.”
2. Meanwhile, here in Ireland: “The report of the Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse is the map of an Irish hell.”
3. But before anyone gets too carried away: “Fanatical atheists are like slaves who are still feeling the weight of their chains which they have thrown off after hard struggle.” (Albert Einstein).
