Not a conflict of interest?

Um, what color is the sky in their world?

During the 1980's and 1990's a pattern emerged of confusing, misleading and intimidating clergy abuse victims who contacted the Seattle AD for emotional and spiritual help in dealing with their sexual assault. These victim disempowerment tactics were all done under the guise of pastoral response to what the church then knew was in many times criminal behavior on the part of its clergy. The church withheld and misrepresented information to various types of secular evaluators over the years. There are victim and accountability groups who gather the data, testimony and information which supports claims such as this one. (SNAP and to name only two)I encourage people to check out what the victims have to say about their experience with the Seattle AD before coming to any conclusions.

As a Jew you are the right reporter for this story Josh. I'm glad you are going after these Christian child molestors. Christianity is a religion of perverts.

Josh I loved your story last year demanding a menorah in the Seattle Airport. How is that going? As Jews we must force racist Seattle to place symbols of our belief in all public spaces that Christian symbols appear.
