Mr. Schuster's thinking (letter, Feb. 28) that the $5 million settlement paid by the Archdiocese of Dubuque to victims of sexual abuse by priests could have fed the starving for a while is ludicrous!
Where is his compassion for the sexually abused all over this world? Food is the very basic need of the starving, but what about the needs of small children who have been victims of rape, whether by priests or others?
Priests are responsible for the spiritual leadership of thousands. If they sin, it does affect those thousands they have been leading spiritually!
