You are correct, and even a site like bishopaccountability.org goes over the top staing names of people merely accused but not found guilty. They staunchly defend this as a “right” and never remove anybody. Catholics need an anti defamation league.
Are there any evil acts that are not “justified” by someone as really not bad, because of some Higher Good? Isn’t our 2018 world filled with Higher Causes?
From G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy:
“The modern world is not evil; in some ways the modern world is far too good. It is full of wild and wasted virtues. When a religious scheme is shattered (as Christianity was shattered at the Reformation), it is not merely the vices that are let loose. The vices are, indeed, let loose, and they wander and do damage. But the virtues are let loose also; and the virtues wander more wildly, and the virtues do more terrible damage. The modern world is full of the old Christian virtues gone mad. The virtues have gone mad because they have been isolated from each other and are wandering alone.”
