‘Reverential fear’: The only reform that could tackle clerical sexual abuseThank you, Geoffrey Robertson! “A church that has tolerated the sexual abuse of tens of thousands of children – a crime against humanity in any definition – needs to face unpalatable truths and to make drastic reforms… The necessary reforms must begin with recognition that child sexual abuse is a crime, not just a sin, and must be reported to and dealt with by prosecuting authorities. Canon law, with its pathetic punishments of prayer and penitence, and its obligations to keep proceedings secret, must have no part in dealing with allegations of sex abuse.” https://www.smh.com.au/national/the-jesuits-say-give-me-the-boy-at-seven-and-look-what-this-led-to-20190228-p510uy.html?fbclid=IwAR2V8JI0wXoMoIPDRyse9UOZTWf1alDps8WvMz2gRQky1EKIALsgh4j45rU
