Breaking! Spokane Diocese settlement reached

Issue: Diocese settlement reached/John Stucke & Virginia de Leon, Spokesman-Review

More Info: A $48 million settlement to end the Catholic Diocese of Spokane bankruptcy has been filed. The plan - which calls on parishes to raise $10 million - is a major breakthrough in a case now in its third year. A federal mediator announced the settlement, calling it a fair resolution for more than 100 people who were sexually abused by priests in Eastern Washington. It's also designed to ensure that the diocese can continue its ministry.

Question: Has the struggles of the Catholic Church in dealing with sex-predator priests affected your view of that particular faith?
