TH series serves no benefit

I understand there were a number of Catholic priests who committed vicious and unthinkable acts against children of our community.

Though I certainly sympathize with the victims, and cannot imagine the pain and distress they must have felt, I do not see any benefit of repeatedly plastering stories of sexual abuse committed by priests on the front page of the TH day after day.

If the TH wishes to be regarded as a reputable news source, it better start acting as such.
