The Catholic Church went through a litany of scandals in the 1980’s and 1990’s, unfortunately, they did not learn from their prior mistakes. It’s 2018 and we are living through another series of scandals that suspiciously resembles the exact same scandals from twenty years earlier.
The Catholic Church is in a world of hurt right now, multiple states are subpoenaing Catholic Churches and Dioceses all over the United States. The newest player to the criminal investigation, is the state of New York. NY Attorney General has issued subpoenas to every single diocese in the state.
Multiple scandals involving the child trafficking and sexual assault of children has rocked the Church this year. Earlier this year, the entire upper management of the Church in Chile, 31 Bishops and three retired all resigned from their posts at the Church and put their future in the hands of the Pope.
Next, the Italian police raided an apartment of a Cardinal at the Vatican. During the raid they encountered the assistant to the Cardinal, holding a drug filled homosexual orgy. Not exactly church type behavior. Now, in America, thousands of adults are coming forward about their abuse as children at the hands of trusted Catholic Priests and employees of the Diocese.
