The Catholic Church is Opposing a Bill That Could Help Sexually Abused Children Get Justice

Perhaps the saddest aspect in the scandal involving former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert is that he can’t be prosecuted for allegedly molesting kids because the statute of limitations expired a long time ago.

In an excellent Daily Show segment a couple of nights ago, Trevor Noah discussed how there is a push in Connecticut (and elsewhere) to eliminate the statute of limitations in child sexual abuse cases so that predators can’t get off on a technicality.

But there’s opposition to the law coming from — you guessed it — the Catholic Church.

The kicker:

The Catholic Church thinks we shouldn’t punish people for crimes that happened a long time ago.

And yet, one woman ate an apple 6,000 years ago and we’re still paying for it.

Hypocrisy in the Church? I’m shocked.
