On June 11 I wrote a post critical of Archbishop Robert Carlson of St. Louis, who stated in a deposition that he wasn’t sure in the 1980s if sex with children was a crime. I expressed my disgust with the Archbishop, and wistfully recalled the days when horsewhipping was still an accepted means of dealing with villains.
However, before I vilify a person, I like to get more details, to make sure I’m not falling for some media feeding frenzy; so I didn’t post the entry right away. And boy, am I glad I waited.
You see, the Archbishop says that he did know that sex with minors was a crime; he just misunderstood the questions put to him in the deposition.
Sir, I think you should donate what’s left of your brain to science so that they can see how a person with no functioning brain cells can still walk and talk.
And do it now. You’ll never miss it.
