At this point, you have to assume that all priests are pedophiles. Some have been caught, but most are getting away with it. Or you can have faith in Catholic priests and put your children with pedophiles and other priests that protect pedophiles.

Church officials can not always be trusted to have our children’s best interest at heart. If you have knowledge or have been harmed by Sorenson, please report it to the police, not church officials. Crimes against kids, however old, should be investigated by the independent professionals in law enforcement, not the biased amateurs in church offices. Also, know that you are not alone, and there is hope, help, and a chance to protect kids.
