PENN STATE took the high road by firing the university’s president and its football coach, who was an institution in the world of college football. They did what was right in response to a child sex abuse scandal, as opposed to the road that the Catholic Church has followed. The hierarchy of the church has refused to sanction many wayward leaders, the bishops, who supervised the priests. They have not dismissed a prince of the church, a cardinal, and in fact elevated Bernard Law to a high position in Rome.
It is tragic that an institution, supposedly a moral giant, cannot compete with an institution of higher learning with a leaning toward sports.
