Those who have been following the site over the years know that from time to time I take a break to mull over something or other which I feel I need to address before carrying on. That has been done. A mini sabbatical 🙂
Now I am moving on to a mini vacation. I head off bright and early tomorrow morning – will be gone until Monday evening. I will have my laptop so will stay tuned into what’s happening on the site, blog when I can, and post any media which is of particular interest.
I was disappointed but not unfortunately surprised to see that yet another court date has been set for Father Hod Marshall csb. I’m beginning to think there’s a revolving door in every courthouse designated for these “alleged” clerical molesters and/or their legal teams. It’s fine and dandy to talk ad nauseam about the rights of “alleged” molesters to speedy trial, but what of their “alleged” victims? Do they not warrant a speedy trial? Besides, I would think Father Marshall would be keen to get this to trial and get it over with. If he’s planning a guilty plea, then lets’ hear it and spare the victims any further agaony. If he’s denying, well, then I would think he would be keen to clear his ‘good’ name?
So, why the delays?
It’s frustrating to watch. I can only imagine what it is like for the “alleged” victims. Keep them in your prayers.
I have to be up at 4 am so will close off now – have to update the Hod Marshall page with the new 13 October 2010 court date.
Enough for now,
