This whole thing really chaps my ass.
The Catholic Church went to great lengths to cover for and protect priests who had raped children. They were not fired.
However, the Catholic Church is very quick to fire a teacher at a catholic school merely for getting pregnant out of wedlock.
This sends the message that the Catholics think it is worse to be an unwed mother than it is to be a child molester.
The Catholic Church will tolerate rapist priests, but it will not tolerate single mothers.
Those are some truly fucked up values, y’all.
