  1. Why not submit a claim and if the victim doesn’t think the compensation is adequate then the victim can take it to Court?

  2. I've never understood why we continue to support and seek refuge at an institution that disguises themselves as benevolent-minded when the risks are too high

  3. Roman Catholicism should be abolished as a pedophile cult . All the land should be sold and the appropriate clergy in prison where they belong . This is a disgusting organization of lies , deception , sexual predators and money grabbing . Devils in disguise .

  4. Let's face it, there is a reason for a statute of limitations, how could anyone mount a proper defense against 40 plus year old allegations? Everyone has the constitutionally guaranteed right to a vigorous defense, sadly that includes some really bad men.

  5. These HORRENDOUS PEOPLE WANTONLY DESTROYED LIVES AND WERE SHELTERED BY THIS EQUALLY HIDEOUS CONSPIRACY….THERE IS NO MORAL AUTHORITY THE CATHOLIC CHURCH HAS ANYMORE!! And it’s STILL GOING ON!!

  6. I gotta add, maybe the federal government should step in. State after state, city after city, the church's leaders have hidden criminals pasts, crimes and even helped the, escape prosecution… That alone qualifies for RICO prosecution. On Going criminal conspiracy in multiple states.. Many federal statutes can be used on the church to give up these scum or have their leaders accountable.

  7. We cannot help the victims of the past but we can take their stories and learn, something like this cannot happen again.
    As a catholic, im sorry that this happened i hope that the victims could heal through the years.

  8. Alleged Priest is dead, abuse took place beyond the statute of limitations, victim is in his 50's but there's a compensation fund out there. "…Not about the money."

    Right….

  9. Any sexual abuse is nefarious – unforgivable. My family was devastated when discovered that one Franciscan friar was abusing my brother at the final of 1960s. My brother was studying in a seminary… It's a long story. So, he killed himself years after. Sexual abusers are not humans! Congratulations to the Wall Street Journal for publication.

  10. Sadly, more people pay attention to the Epstein scandal than the worst sexual abuse coverup in organised crime in history. And it's still going on with little consequence. Shame on all who stayed silent and did nothing.
