An "insensitive" take on the confession controversy

I have just finished reading “California v. Common Sense” in the May 24th edition and feel an urgent need to convey my disgust at the article and the arguments against the church being legally required to report confessions of probable abuse. The article is insensitive, as well as a dismissive distortion of the facts of recent history. There certainly were plenty of confessions and the church did not police itself well. It did not stop child abuse from within its own ranks — not through confession, not through reassignment. Please do not ignore the lessons of history. The Church is better than this!
