"We all considered sexual abuse of minors as a moral evil, but had no understanding of its criminal nature."

[1] Rod Dreher, "Weakland's Exit: A Liberal Bishop and His Downfall", The National Review, 24 May 2002: "The alleged ex-lover, Paul Macoux, is calling his decades-old encounter with Weakland "sexual abuse," but from what we know now, that's not the case. Macoux, 54, was at least in his late 20s when he began a relationship with Weakland, and from an 11-page, handwritten 1980 "Dear Paul" letter Weakland wrote to Macoux, it appears that the archbishop and his paramour had a consensual relationship, one that Weakland ended when he decided to begin honoring his vow of celibacy."
