    Now, that's all the peacemaking I'm doing for now.

    Later gals!
    Individual teachers don't get protected by school policy when they're abusive. The RCC by POLICY and PRACTICE protected priests and did NOT protect children. That's a policy that was screwed up.

    Just because you read it that way doesn't mean that's what it says.

    Why not? I'm trying to persuade people to my point of view all the time. That's why I often include links and references to back up my posts.

    Yes, they do. Cops, too. There was a school in California that had multiple teachers found out to be sexually abusing students and when the board tried to shut it down to sort out if there were more the teacher's union stopped them.

    That's a cover up.

    Yes, it is. But I'm saying if you add the dimension of a religious institution covering it up you can damage the religious/spiritual life of the child IN ADDITION to the other trauma the child experiences.

    NO, I don't feel you were personally attacking me. I do feel another person was by calling me a "mean and angry person".
    I'm not interested in being persuaded to another point of view. I post here to share my ideas and what I feel passionate about, and it interests me what other people think and feel, and why they do.

    Teachers are role models and people you look up to, as well. They hold power over you no different between grades and disciplinary action.

    I don't blame schools or churches, tho. I had ten years of collective punishment in the military and I know how it feels to be blamed for things other people did.

    These people are cop outs on parenting to send their kids away and let other people handle them. I don't approve of it at all.

    Technically, she said you seemed angry and were being mean to her because you weren't listening. You heard "mean and angry person".

    Just trying to keep the peace. You're both nice people and I don't want it to get out of hand.

    Well, I don't see much difference between her saying I'm mean and angry and saying I'm a mean and angry person.

    Especially since I'm neither. I'm not angry about this story, I'm passionately concerned. Why wouldn't I be? My entire life revolves around children.
