There was no end to the deep thinkers who compared the Penn State sexual abuse issue to similar cases in the Catholic Church. Of course, a better analogy would have been to compare the state university to other state institutions, namely the public schools. That’s where young people are most likely to be abused.
The “Occupy Wall Street” gang would be an even better analogy. All over the big cities, reports of sexual abuse have emerged among the occupiers. In fact, in many places the leaders of these urban barbarians have instructed the hippy-dippy crowd not to contact the authorities: they want to handle matters like rape internally. Yet we hear nothing from the same critics of the Catholic Church. Instances like this prove again what the real issue is.
