Now that I have a forum at my disposal, I'd like to take a stand against the Catholic bashing that has been going on since the priest scandal broke. As a start, I offer a well-written letter to the editor submitted to The Pitt News by a good friend (and the man who sponsored my confirmation 2 years ago).
Catholic teachings are not at fault by Gerald McClain
"The Newman Oratory Catholic Organization, as the official Roman Catholic organization on the Pitt campus, would like to take this opportunity to formally address the recent criticism the Church has received. We would like to acknowledge the current situation about pedophilic and ephebophilic priests, address the general attack the Church underwent recently in the Pitt News and finally address the Catholics here on the Pitt campus."
