Warning of retaliation and bad faith by the Roman Catholic Church, a nationwide organization of victims of sexual abuse by priests urged other victims Monday not to report the offenses to the church. Instead, the group--including an Anaheim woman who said she was abused as a 13-year-old--said victims should take their complaints to law enforcement authorities, attorneys, counselors or family members.

Judging purely from the outcome, Saturday's concluding meeting of Roman Catholic religious orders would seem to have closed the debate on the church's sex abuse policy: The one remaining major body of priests adopted a zero tolerance policy toward sex offenders with only a few minor procedural changes. Yet the meeting is likely to be remembered for a different milestone.

This year, organizers of the Harvest Crusade, the popular Christian revival, have cast a wider net to capture the unchurched or simply uncommitted. They have added two days and a fistful of new attractions, beginning their five-night run tonight at Edison Field with a first-ever fireworks show.

In his five years as worldwide leader of the Salvation Army, Gen. Paul A. Rader has seen the horrors of wars in the Balkans and abject poverty in Africa and South America. But as he nears the end of his term as the first American to lead the 134-year-old Christian evangelical organization, Rader said the most profound impoverishment is to be found in the wealthy countries of the West--"a great emptiness and longing for meaning and purpose."

Calling on each other to disagree "perhaps with passion, but always with civility and respect" and to shun appeals to prejudice, hate and violence, a group of leading area Muslim and Jewish organizations today plan to present a code of ethics to govern the two communities' often passionate arguments. "The rhetoric of hostility is not healthy," said Maher Hathout, a Monrovia physician and head of the Islamic Center of Southern California.

Democratic efforts to frame recent Republican policies and right-wing statements as part of a larger “war on women” led by the GOP took another step Sunday. On CNN's “State of the Union,” Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz portrayed Republicans as “turning back the clock for women.” “Gov. [Scott] Walkerjust signed a bill that repeals the equal pay law that they had in Wisconsin for years,” she said to host Candy Crowley. “You have Republicans that have engaged themselves for the entire Congress on trying to redefine rape as only being forceful rape, defunding Planned Parenthood and family planning programs.” Wasserman Schultz's remarks, in which she also called the GOP "callous and insensitive," follow Republican National Chairman Reince Priebus' response Thursday to allegations of a war on women on Bloomberg TV. “If the Democrats said we had a war on caterpillars, and mainstream media outlets talked about the fact Republicans have a war on caterpillars, then we have problems with caterpillars,” Priebus said.
