Being comfortable calling the Catholic sexual abuse scandal “history” may be a mixed blessing for a church facing enormous guilt and legal culpability. As wonderful that it is that the church is now free of priests abusing children, well ... it wasn’t so difficult, was it? The speed and ease with which the church seems to have eliminated the problem may come back to haunt it when people seeking damages ask why it wasn’t done before.
