There is no way in the world that I could ever be oblivious to the subject of Child Molestation, because I am Catholic and all that has happened in the recent history of the Catholic Church. To say it dominates the religion is, IMO, an understatement. It is such a huge issue among all Catholics that I just can't wrap my mind around it being something that Joe Pa could have been oblivious to. For me, that's really the part I can not make right in my head.
He was not oblivious to it, he just dealt with it in the same way that the Catholic church did.
Until it becomes public.
