http://www.theage.com.au/national/ch...115-29evv.htmlTHE Catholic Church has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on legal fees to defend priests and brothers who have already been tried and convicted of serious sexual assaults against children in their care.
etc etc etc
According to the victim support group Broken Rites, by the late 1990s the Christian Brothers had already spent about $400,000 in defending Dowlan and Best.
Also saw a bit from the enquiry where the Church spent $1,000,000 defending one priest, the person being questioned grinned and said "yes including GST" ..............what a pig of a man !!!
Makes you wonder if the Church is so riddled with paedophiles and those who have protected them that the whole thing should be dismantled, they'll never get to the bottom of it as too many high profile people would have been involved somehow.
