Catholic Church loses child sex abuse liability appeal

From BBC News:

The Church is still bullshitting:

A spokesman for the diocese said: “This case is not, and has never been, about seeking to avoid or delay the payment of compensation to victims with valid claims.

“This case is about fundamental legal principles involving the very nature of civil society and religious freedom.

“It would be disastrous if, in seeking to provide redress for victims of harm, the law put intolerable new pressures on the voluntary sector. 

“This judgement shows further thought and scrutiny are required before clarity in this regard can be established.”

“It would be disastrous if, in seeking to provide redress for victims of harm, the law put intolerable new pressures on the voluntary sector.”

What does this mean?

That if the Church had to compensate all the chilldren it has harmed, it would be hindered in “doing good”?
