"The sexual abuse scandal in the Catholic Church is no longer about the alleged victims—they have had their day in court—it is about the victimization of the Catholic Church.

But there's more.
"Bishops would do well not to listen to those who always want to settle and start playing hardball. It’s time to countersue."Oh, God. Here we go with the Viking funeral bit -- it's one of Donahue's strengths.
I've gotta say -- one of the smartest things Ed Egan ever did was to kick the Catholic League out of the New York chancery. Did it spare the rest of us headaches? Well, no... but at least it stripped those headaches of the appearance of coming from competent authority.
