In the aftermath of the Cardinal Pell conviction, the secular authorities in Australia have moved to change laws that will permit old abuse victims to seek new damages against the Church. On the surface this may seem like the just thing to do, one has to ask what the limits to this action are.
But this isn’t limited to Australia. In the US we see similar laws being proposed and moved on by state legislators. In New Jersey, state lawmakers are already adjusting those laws in light of the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report. Other states will follow. But what are the limits? And why should the Church pay for what the Modernists have wrought?
