More on putting abuse cases in context

Again, I link to Dolphinarium, who has a detailed response to a letter in The Times. She makes very ably the point that the child protection regime now in place in the Catholic Church in this country is a strong one.

UPDATE: Again, from Dolphinarium: Response to clerical abuse report - a couple of letters in the Irish Times. The quotation below is in the context of Ireland, where Catholic Bishops are under attack in the media. Whether members of the Garda and other professionals are under similar attack over exactly the same events is an interesting point!
If bishops have to resign, then, in justice, leaders of other professions and statutory bodies who made serious errors of judgment in this matter should likewise resign.
