Is the Philadelphia’s Victim’s Fund Victimizing?  The politics of religion will never stop, even when there appears to be an effort to provide financial relief and acknowledgment for those who were victimized by cover-up clergy abuse.  See the latest article and revelation about the newly formed victim’s fund for survivors of abuse at the hands of the Philadelphia Archdiocese.  Left to the Archdiocese’s own devices and politics, many victims will be left out altogether unless our legislators in Harrisburg again address the statute of limitations for lawsuits and have the courage to make sure the law passes and signed into law.
