Sorry but I don't believe you. It was the 1970's not the stone age. Maybe you didn't know exactly what the law said but how could you not know it was illegal.St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson testified last month that he wasn’t sure whether it was illegal for priests to have sex with children while he served as chancellor of the St. Paul and Minneapolis archdiocese.

If he really was this stupid he is the dumbest priest in history. As a priest he should have known better, law or no law. Instead of protecting those priests you should have protected these children.
