Interesting Quote from Catholic Sexual Abuse Case

The recent sentencing of former Catholic priest Wayland Yoder Brown, who was convicted of raping multiple boys while serving as a Catholic priest, brought to light an interesting quote from prosecuting attorney Duffie Stone. The latter says of Brown:

“He not only violated the trust of children, but violated their faith. He used the Catholic faith against them," 

While Bob Malm is not accused of sexual misconduct, his weaponization of faith by attempting to force parishioners out of the church as part of his vendetta makes him almost as reprehensible as Brown.

Needless to say, my advice to others is to not give the Dysfunctional Bobs of the world power over you. Any clergyperson who would abuse the power differential inherent in the relationship between clergy and laity is an abuser, pure and simple.
