SSPX Sex Scandals And Cover Ups
#44
Yeesh. People say (myself included) "utterly convincing" so often about so many things that the phrase means nothing anymore. If the CM article was "utterly convincing," then it just reveals how many people are deeply impressionable. When one hears about mob and herd mentalities, one always brushes it off saying, "Nah, that could never be me." Yet we are so blind and foolish in our pride that by making that very statement, we join everyone else, who also said the same thing, and thus prove the point.

Dreher writes, "...then it needs to come out. All of it. Everything."

And like we've seen so many times, sex abuse (and #MeToo, etc) display so powerfully why we must not rashly cast aside the long-standing principles of our Western legal system. We think just because we have strong feelings that we can start wildly waving our fists, thinking that if we hit something we are being effective, and that our feelings justify any action we think is necessary to arrive at "justice," not realizing that justice is done precisely when clarity and principles are abided by through thick and thin. The thought that the world has a right to know everything that privately happens is ridiculous. Perhaps only in an age of instant communication, celebrity culture, social media do we think that just because "everyone's doing it" by posting pictures of every aspect of their lives for everyone else, so should I. The ideas of reputation and the collective good of communities are such quaint notions to us moderns even though we take conscious delight when both are dragged through the mud.

What many people don't realize is that confidentiality, prudence, respect of reputations can make these situations incredibly difficult to navigate. Most don't realize it because they have never been in those sorts of situations.
