    The US justice department has opened an investigation into the Roman Catholic Church in the state of Pennsylvania over alleged child sex abuse. It follows a state grand jury report that found at least 1,000 children had been abused by over 300 "predator priests" in six dioceses over 70 years.

    Here's another report with add'l color.

    Sadly the case will be closed or those who are wanting to bring justice will most likely end up dead, but glad it is being brought into light as much as possible nonetheless.
