I grew up reading comic books wanting to be a superhero. Comics taught me that those who speak the truth are heroes, all the rest are liars.

Just Another Super Human

I've seen Minnesota Attorney Jeff Anderson speak on several occasions and have half heartily followed his crusade against pedophile priests in his own Catholic faith for personal reasons that include being emotionally/physically abused in a Catholic missionary school.

Taking on the hugely wealthy and secretive Catholic church hasn't been easy. For decades the church has systemically allowed abusers to continue under the corrupted values of its own leadership and its unshaken commitment to a sinister hierarchical power. American bishops often transferred accused Catholic priests to other parishes or dioceses after receiving allegations. But the hierarchy also moved accused priests across international borders to other countries, where they continued to work with children and were often able to evade prosecution or extradition. Jeff has attempted to get the church to acknowledge it's own culpability in these crimes while seeking justice and closure for its victims.

Now I see that Jeff is taking on those that use the internet to exploit children by downloading porn....Makes me want to start designing Jeff's superhero outfit...cape and all...He heard the call of victims and decided to fight for them...thank you!
