Letters: The horrors of abuse

Re “Trial starts for man who beat priest over alleged molestation,” June 21

Being a spiritual but not a religious person, I never could swallow the concept of heaven and hell. However, after reading John Lynch’s story, I now know that those two little boys experienced their own personal hell by coming face to face with the devil in the form of Father Jerold Lindner, who was accused of molestation by more than a dozen people.

As far as I am concerned, the wrong man — Lynch, who allegedly assaulted the elderly Lindner — is on trial. Shame on “Father Jerry.” Shame on the Roman Catholic Church.
