Inquirer Editorial: Vows of silence
February 14, 2011

What will it take for Roman Catholic Church leaders to finally stand up and openly and honestly confront the priest sex-abuse scandal that continues to eat away at the very institution its leaders are trying to protect?

Do more priests have to be taken away in handcuffs? Does a cardinal or two have to get indicted? Will a judge have to hold the Vatican liable?

How many more boys have to get abused and turn to drugs and alcohol to ease their pain and suffering? Or commit suicide? Does already-lagging church attendance have to plummet even further? Do collection plates have to return to the altar empty?
