Here's what happens when you're not a Catholic priest

An article over at The Kansas City Star tells of a man from Southern Missouri who took advantage of a 12-year old girl, gave her marijuana and alcohol and then took sexually explicit pictures of her, disgustingly enough. The local reaction? "The girl told an assistant principal at her school that December that she had been sexually victimized, and police opened an investigation immediately." That, ladies and gentlemen, is what consistently DOESN'T happen when and if yet one more Catholic priest is thought to be taking advantage of young school-age children in their own Catholic schools. No investifgation is immediately undertaken. Instead, the possibly-offending priest is just shuffled off to some other unsuspecting city or town. It's shameful and we've seen it happen time and time again. It's certainly what happened with former priest Shawn Ratigan and it's not going to stop unless or until the public demands it stops.
