Catholic Church Defends Pedophile Priests, Crusades Against New Sex Abuse Victims Protections

If you were hoping for the day when the Catholic Church would stop standing with pedophile priests and begin standing with their victims, you’ll have to wait. California lawmakers have been working tirelessly on a bill that would strengthen protections for the victims of pedophile priests by lifting the statute of limitations on reporting sexual abuse for a group of people who may have missed the previous deadline.

According to the Huffington Post,

Senate Bill 131 would permit many victims who would otherwise be unable to file a civil suit due to time and age restrictions… to sue their abuser’s employer in civil court.

The proposed law would lift the statute of limitations for one year for the group of alleged victims who were 26 and older and missed the previous deadline.
