#5 Minn. Supreme Court Rejects ‘Repressed Memory’ Junk Science Against Priest, Media Yawns
For years now, Church-suing lawyers have attempted to use the novel psychological theory of “repressed memory” as a way to circumvent the statutes of limitations in many states in order to file big-money lawsuits against the Catholic Church.
However, in July, the Minnesota Supreme Court flatly rejected the theory as bogus. The Court declared that scientific studies that have tried to prove the bogus theory have “lacked foundational reliability.” Yet – not unexpectedly – the media was nowhere to be found reporting this important story.
Regular readers of this site have long known that “repressed memory” is a complete sham. Yet once again, when the facts do not fit the accepted media narrative, the facts are ignored. Kudos to the Minnesota Supreme Court, however, for telling the story that the media will not.
