Abuse Victims Refuse to be Victimized Again

Last April, the National Catholic Reporter ran a story on the so-called "Victims' Summit," a gathering of alleged victims of priestly sexual abuse scheduled to take place in St. Peter's Square on October 31. At that time, Bernie McDaid, one of the organizers, predicted they would amass 50,000 people in a massive show of anger against the Catholic Church.

Such rallies are often used by those who wish to push a liberal agenda upon the Church. By politicizing the abuse issue, these activists hope to promote changes like the acceptance of married priests and women "priests."

Yesterday, the dissident Catholic newspaper reported that a grand total of 60 protesters showed up near St. Peter's Square.
