So, what did all the old Catholics think that scandal was about?
"Reality tells us there are no guarantees. Except that some day Jon Lester will be on that list of 100-game winners." - Peter Gammons
My parents generation was the generation that really experienced the abuse by the priests. There are stories about priest taking high school aged kids to an athletic club to swim and would end up showering after they were done. In hindsight it seemed odd but at the time they said no one really raised an eye. This was also the time that after gym class everyone would shower nowadays that would be taboo.
There were priests you knew were guilty, there were priests you suspected may be guilty, and there were also priests who were accused in a witch hunt only to be cleared later. At the end of the day the church did their best to sweep everything under the rug. In Cincinnati I thought they should have hammered the Bishop who was in charge. Now it isn't talked about much in church circles.
I think the idea of male anal sex is common knowledge. Playing dumb, it isn't just for children anymore.

Wear gaudy colors, or avoid display. Lay a million eggs or give birth to one. The fittest shall survive, yet the unfit may live. Be like your ancestors or be different. We must repeat!
Did anyone notice that Penn State had a moment of silence for the child abuse victims before their game on Saturday? What a crazy thing to do. Who thought that one up? The smartest thing PSu can do now is to quit reminding everyone of what happened. Move on and play football
