Before reading your comment, in my mind - in one of those little over loaded grey slots where we store our data - I had filed the article with this label " a small percentage group in this town, the needy who need the most but get the least (attention)".
On Counting the Least Among Us

The Housing Authority has a compassionate understanding of the needs of a person regarding their beloved animal friend. One is allowed to have a pet in Senior Housing and probably elsewhere too.

This is a man of God we are talking about! A man whom we have trusted for years to represent all moral and religious belief. No amount of publicly pronounced platitudes and splendid regalia can cover this soiled and flawed persona.
Any praise at all for this hypocrite party to shielding and protecting child abusers while refusing to reveal information to the authorities is egregious to me.
His duty was to protect the children. Not the cruel priests who preyed and sinned.
Guilt and heinous acts he would have continued the cover up to if his own failure had not been revealed after years of hard and painful work by the courageous victims - and the many dedicated men and women sworn to speak for the innocent prey - not the predator.
Save the praise for these good people and please, Santa Barbara, hope and pray that the authorities will work hard on a fair and lawful solution which will bring closure to these once trusting, vulnerable and innocent children.

Of course. One cannot diffuse all the good nuns have done and are still doing. That would be insensitive and very wrong. My father, wounded and gassed in WWI, spent time in a Convent.Hospital in France. He spoke highly of their seemingly tireless work, dedication, gentleness and compassion.
Yes, I agree. A really awful publication. The Daily Mail which arrived on our doorstep along with The Times 50 years ago was a conservative and erudite paper. The Express, Lord Beaverbrook's contribution and possibly much too liberal for my parents, was not popular in our household at the time.

Definitely not the nuns!

All true. The whole idea of this system being run by either celibate gender is harrowing. .

I was surprised not to see the U.K. mentioned in your first list. I was born there and remember how almost everyone I knew had a dog and Crufts was the centre of attraction each year.
Guess everyone is either too poor or too busy these days. Sad.

Are you quite sure about the nuns, Dr Dan?

It is a tragedy that ignorance will prevail in the the quest to suppress evil for the sake of saving face. Hopefully in time these badly advised individuals will learn false loyalty to a flawed organisation was simply a matter of fear of their own conscience, to which they turned a deaf ear.

DrDan and blackpoodles, thank you!
Henry the Eighth was no fool. Nor did he suffer hypocrites gladly. He would no doubt have agreed with Martin Luther on that count and approved of the sack of Rome by an army of German Lutherans in 1527,
