We’ve all seen some sad spectacle about the Catholic Church over the past couple weeks. The movie “Spotlight,” portraying Boston Globe’s shattering expose of Cardinal Bernard Law’s archdiocese sheltering, promoting and protecting sex-abusive priests, won the Academy Award for Best Picture. The next day, Australian Cardinal George Pell testified to before a royal commission that at the time he cared little or nothing about the victims of sex abuse — even as he called such neglect “indefensible.”
