That awkward silence

That awkward silence

Terry Mattingly wonders why there is so much silence regarding the latest Dallas Morning News revelations. For the most part, the mainstream press hasn’t picked it up and even Catholic bloggers seem relatively quiet, except for throwing up a link to it.

Are we jaded? Are we now inured to the latest outrage? Perhaps we just can’t get the blood pumping for yet another report of a pervert molesting kids. Maybe we’ve moved on from outrage at the individual stories and only want to address what’s going to be done about it all. I’m not sure why others aren’t getting in on it. What do you think?
