Pete Davidson of Saturday Night Live said, "If you support the Catholic Church, isn't that the same thing as being an R. Kelly fan?"
As a Catholic, I find this statement most appalling. The church has had problems with sexual abuse by priests and have addressed the problem and tried to help victims.
The comparison with R. Kelly is a comparison that hurts many victims. The Diocese of Brooklyn is dedicated to helping sexual abuse victims and seeing to it that clergy abuse never happens again.
