It would be a lie to say I was surprised, but the Berlin sexual abuse story that broke on Friday has had an article in the back pages of the IT by Derek Scally and nothing else.
Jesuit Priest Admits Molesting Youth: Germany Shaken By 'Systematic' Sexual Abuse at Berlin Catholic School - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - International
This is a very relevant story for Ireland.
The very widespread argument (locally defended by TA and treacherously employed by the apologetics as a get out for their religion) that sex abuse is an Irish rather than a catholic thing is rather undermined by it.
Here's Scally's piece:
Apology over sex abuse by Jesuit priests - The Irish Times - Fri, Jan 29, 2010
Anyone see any other coverage?
