Made to be broken

One of my pastor's themes is that there are people who are too concerned with knowing and following rules. That came to mind to when I read his remarks on the Church's sexual abuse scandal in his column in last Sunday's St. Al's bulletin.
I truly believe that after child abuse became a 'crime' in the legal sense, those who were involved with 'obstructing' justice needed to be held especially accountable.
If it's a tradeoff, I say it's better for a pastor to know it's not a recent development that sexually abusing children is a crime even if he's also a bit of a stickler on other rules.

See Weakland says he didn't know priests' abuse was crime
