Maria Buser: Priest’s letter truly disturbing

I was truly perturbed by letter from the Catholic priest, “Treat all sex crimes equally” (Nov. 26, Page A8). To read that he is disturbed about the placement of an article involving sex crimes against children by members of any church is ridiculous.

To suggest equal reporting and placement of such stories takes a great amount of audacity. No competition is won, no votes are gained, nobody wins if they “make the front page.” My suggestion to the reverend is to find more productive uses for his letter-writing abilities by promoting preventative ways of having such crimes ever occur.
