Re: the Aug. 26 guest column "End donations to Catholic Church to force changes."
Renee Schafer-Horton's logic defies imagination. By not donating to the Catholic Church, you are somehow erasing history while at the same time assuring the offenses will no longer occur? That's like saying "I'm not going to go to the movies anymore," "I'm not going to watch CBS Television any longer," "I'm not paying taxes from this point on."
Such action does NOTHING to address what was previously unacceptable behavior in any number of "institutions" in this country. The simple fact that it is now out there and the accused shamed and unemployed has sent a loud, clear message already. The task going forward is to assure that it never happens again. Denying funding to the Catholic Church will only hinder that assurance.
