Abstract
We believe that the continuing emphasis on the sexual-abuse of minors in the Catholic Church, correct though it may be, helps to cover up the justice-abuse of both minors and adults, which is enabled by the exaggerated power and privilege presumed by and allowed to clerics that is rampant in the Church. This essay approaches the issue of justice-abuse from a perspective guided by the principle of faith that sees injustice and does justice and draws from scripture to explicitly challenge the use and abuse of power individually and institutionally that has led to sexual- and justice-abuse and its cover up in the Catholic Church.|Keywords: charity, clericalism, faith, justice-abuse, power, scotosis, scripture, sex-abuse
