    This news shows why clergy and politicians are two groups who should never sleep together. (Heck, as whores, politicians are bound to give your clergy some kind of virtual STD.)

    "The Child Victims Act would have eliminated the criminal statute of limitations for several types of sex crimes against children . . "

    now it's dead-in-the-water because . .

    "Lobbyists for the Roman Catholic Church strongly opposed the bill. . . the Catholic Conference . . spent $2.1 million from 2007 to 2015 lobbying against reforms to child sex abuse laws in New York."

    Someone from the "Stop Abuse Campaign" said:

    "They are willing to spend limitless money in order to basically keep bad guys from being accountable for their actions", Blow told the Daily News. "I think they're doing it because they don't want to have to pay out settlements."

    The above is from "Americans United For Separation Of Church And State".

    Could never understand the criminal justice system related to criminal acts either state or Fed. Especially acts of child molestation or sexual assault regardless of age. Under Canadian law we'll come an arrest your sorry A$$ even if you committed the offence in the fifties. Just ask the priests that have been convicted here. You can run but you'll only hide so long. There have been Bishops of the church who have altered or destroyed victim statements an sent the priest to another country an he also faces criminal charges. We do not have statute of limitations on criminal offences here.

    Sixgun2, your country is ahead of the US on this one. Lobbyists are essentially people allowed to bribe public officials, and clerical lobbyists must wind up in the lowest rungs of hell.
