Teens today


Frank Wessling: Page 8, Dec. 1, Messenger editorial.

Do you have (or have you had) teenagers in your home? Publicizing the obvious won’t win you any kudos (teen opinions aren’t mature). Did you do any better as a teenager? Maybe you were prevented from trying.

Look no further than the Catholic Church hierarchy as a “not so” shining example of why teens experience a moral dilemma (clergy abuse). It’s the leadership from top down that provides them with this problem.  Let’s fix that.
