Steroids and the Scandal

In a subscriber-only feature at Catholic World News, Peter Mirus finds some amazing correlations between the basebal steroid scandal and the sex-abuse scandal, with people and institutions involved in both acting in much the same way.

Sometimes people forget that big league sports are big business, where there are millions of dollars at stake, where people take back door alleys and use shady tactics to gain power, prestige, money, etc. But too few make this point about the United States Catholic hierarchy, because as close as Major League Baseball keeps its business to its chest, so much closer do our prelates.
