More Legislation Designed to Attack the Church, this time in New York

The New York Times reports that a bill proposes to lift the statute of limitations as to sexual abuse of children allegedly perpetrated by religious. Again, a discriminatory law; while this version doesn’t specifically target the Roman Catholic Church, it targets religious organizations, ignoring public schools, scouting and any other organization which may have employees or volunteers who abuse children. Victims of sexual abuse by a public school teacher have 90 days after turning 18 to file a claim. It’s clear that somebody has an axe to grind against the Church. Well, Assemblywoman Markey? What do you have against the Church?

Statutes of limitations exist for a reason and memory is unreliable, especially years later. While I am sympathetic with victims, and understand that people are reluctant to talk about abuse situations, it’s unconscionable to lift a statute of limitations years later.

    OF COURSE WE SHOULD REMOVE ANY STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS FROM SEXUAL ABUSERS OF ANY VOCATION/PROFESSION. PROTECT THE CHILDREN AT ALL COSTS. EVEN IF THE CHURCH FALLS WE MUST PROTECT THE LITTLE ONES. IT IS GODS COMMANDMENT AND CONDEMNATION TO PROTECT EVEN THE LEAST OF THESE……LET’S LISTEN TO GOD AND NOT TO GOD’S CREATION(MAN) FOR THE FINAL WORD ON THESE MATTERS.
