Cartoonist points out 'tiresome' abuse



I'm sorry if Ron Mathis (letter, May 1) finds the issue of the sexual abuse of children "tiresome." It's an abuse that the Catholic Church has allowed to go on for decades.

I'm also sorry that we didn't have people like (Chronicle cartoonist) Rick McKee around a few decades ago to continuously bring up this tiresome material. Maybe if we had, then the Catholic Church would not have been able to knowingly hide priests in one church after another.
