As one would think at an institute of higher education there ought not be this type of pass given to these people. But a culture of ignorance is well established by decades of shame permeating the subject or sexuality in general and particularly disturbing in so called blue or progressive states such as mine massachusetts. When the issue of 2002 became so incredibly loud here I urged my fellows to the state house instead of pounding on the churches empty head. We were met, when trying to establish child protection laws, with the oldest lobby in the US the catholic church who vehemently opposed our bill supported by several senate and house leaders, what happened here? it went to committee was watered down and passed as some weak faux form or lesser. I am stymied as to the connection the church had with abusers but it was evident and still is.
