Church drops Ball on protecting children?

Here is an interesting little blog post I just read. The author wonders why it is that the Church leadership (in The United Methodist Church and others) is so quick to condemn the war and other supposed acts of "oppression," but fails to speak up when child molesters are not held to account for their crimes against "the least of these," our children.

I must admit, I do not know the details of the cases that he mentions, but in light of all the child abuse scandals that have rocked (not only Catholic) churches in the last few years I am rather astonished that the Church leadership has not taken on this issue with the shrill "prophetic" voice that we have come to expect on so many other (more contentious) issues.
