As well harping on about deflection leaves the overall topic on abuse both focused on church errors and does not address the both the majoritian of child neglect and abuse occurred outside the remit of the Church and allows a mis-informed narrative to emerge which is being used to attack all aspects of the Clergy and Catholic teaching. This child-neglect I've covered during academic readings of reports on Government handling of the issues since the 90s as well as current trends on child care such as the protection of children online.
Well, it does not really refer to you, had she said "you are utterly disgusting and repulsive" then you would be correct. What Marien actually did was refer to the views that you stated, she tackled the post and not the poster, as the rules of boards say she should.
Marien is one of many people that find the typical whatabouttery trotted out by supporters of the church disgusting and repulsive. Trying to justify all the wrongs that the church has done by say, "but they do some good stuff", is
pretty disgusting and repulsive, not to mention offensive to the victims and any right thinking person.
Even your inadequate explaination of how Marien's post is supposed to be an hominem is just yet more whatabouttery. I guess that is all you have when you try to defend the undefendable.
