Thanks to SoSG reader Nancy Bea for the heads-up: Andre Ethier did an interview with the LA Times Magazine, and I found this exchange interesting:
Then let me ask you as a fellow Catholic who has grappled with this question: How do you reconcile your faith with the abuse scandals that have been so prominent in the church?
You feel a little bit ashamed and embarrassed for the way they handled some of those situations. Who wouldn’t if you belong to whatever group it is? You can relate it to the Dodgers: If they were to handle certain situations in a certain way, and you’re a follower and a fan of the team, you might be embarrassed and upset, but you don’t disown it and just say that’s it. Hopefully they’re making strides, sooner and quicker than they have in the past.
