    A priceless example of how the catholics do not deal with problems of this type.

    I guess the poor girl should have been forced to bear the baby?
    In the church's opinion anyway?

    This does not surprise me in the least. The church's "concern" for the molestation of children is well know.

    I will not 'neg', however, this is ONE parish in Brazil. This does not define the Catholic Church worldwide.

    Nice, I love these red herrings, I say it's justified in that case, but I doubt you agree.

    How is this justified? The girl was raped and giving birth would have killed her.
