"It's a little bit like having Scott Peterson head up a seminar on troubled marriages"

Has Cardinal Bernard Law no sense of shame?
The quote that serves as the title of this post is from Paul Steidler, spokesman for Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests. He was a leader of the protests against the Vatican decision to have Cardlinal Law lead a mass in memory of the late Pope.
This terrible decision casts a shadow on the church leadership once again. Does destroying the childhood of thousands not matter? Is Cardinal Law so important a person that it is worth opening this wound once again to give him a role of honor? Why renew the pain?
A truly terrible decision by church leaders.
