Some big-name liberals are decrying the arrest and trying to minimize Polanski's crimes -- and some are even denying that his crimes were crimes at all.
Of course, no doubt many of these same liberals have attacked the entire Catholic Church for the clergy sex abuse crimes.
And it is a sure bet that virtually none of these liberals ever blast the government ("public") schools for all the rampant sex crimes that those places' employees commit against students.
My point here obviously is not to minimize or excuse clergy sex crimes, but to say again what I've said before: That people who truly want to protect all children from sex crimes need to target all the sex criminals, not just those among the clergy. And if these people do not do that, then they are guilty of hypocrisy, and some of them are guilty of depraved ideology, too.
