The Connecticut legislature is considering a bill that would remove teh statute of limitations on child sex abuse cases. Guess who is opposing the bill. No, it’s not NAMBLA. No, it’s not a mob of sexually precocious toddlers. It’s…the Catholic Church! You probably didn’t see that one coming.
The reason they oppose it isn’t some conservative legal principle. They spilled the beans already — it’s the cost to the church.
The proposed change to the law would put “all Church institutions, including your parish, at risk,” says the letter, which was signed by Connecticut’s three Roman Catholic bishops.
Oh? Why are they worried? Do they have a gang of septuagenarian child molesters tucked away somewhere in the bosom of the Connecticut church?
