NPR is using the public airwaves in an anti-Catholic hate campaign.

And the legal system is complicit in the attack.

http://www.npr.org/2012/02/17/146983312/pa-priest-faces-trial-on-child-abuse-cover-up-charges

Quote:
Between 1992 and 2004, Monsignor William Lynn was the Archdiocese of Philadelphia's point person for allegations of clerical abuse. When he heard a claim, he was supposed to investigate and, if warranted, remove or turn the priest over to police.

But as two grand juries reported in 2005 and 2011, that often didn't happen.

"He willingly oversaw numerous reports of child sex abuse," says Cardozo law professor Marci Hamilton, a consultant to the first grand jury. "And he willingly put these men in positions where they had second, third, fourth opportunities to abuse children in new settings."


But the persecution continues even as the Monsignor has accepted responsibility AND EXPLAINED THE REASON FOR HIS INACTION!!!

Quote:
(Monsignor) Lynn himself told the first grand jury that he let allegations "fall through the cracks" and failed to tell schools or parishes about the alleged abusers because "you don't always put all your dirty laundry out."


We have his acknowledgment. We have his explanation.

How much longer must this persecution go on before the rabid anti-Catholic bigots have had enough? How many more priests must suffer embarrassment by having their dirty laundry put out for public examination?

The hate and bigotry MUST END!!!

I wish I could find a interview I caught a couple of years ago. It was of a former Priest that left the church. He left because his job was to shuffle around accused priests and to placate the families. He was angered that multiple offenders would get reassigned and not excommunicated. In the beginning offenders were removed from access to children, but than the problems of lack of priests crept in. The church felt the offenders had repented and "gotten back on the path" basically. Some where sent to the Vatican to ensure they could not be extricated and tried.

It seemed the main problem was a shortage of priests. The church hierarchy thought that maybe these were incidents of personal failure and location. Like most large organizations dealing with a very big problem, they thought they could make it go away (fix it in house) rather than deal with it up front.

I though this thread was about NPR, guess I read it wrong.

His name is Patrick J. Wall. His story is in 'Act One: Confession'. The amount of cover-up is appalling.

The rest of the episode is pretty good, too.

Last time I checked teacher unions don't claim to be God's representatives on Earth and the sole purveyors of ethics and morality. Or for that matter, be in elaborate palaces while preaching against materialism and greed. :roll:

Imagine for a moment that we weren't talking about the Vatican, but a random corporation. Imagine said corporation has massive political influence and power, and that pedophilia is a rampant problem in many branches. Instead of firing and turning the offenders over to authorities, they reassigned the employees elsewhere, where the pattern repeated. Victims were threatened with massive retaliation if they went to the police. And now it turns out that the CEO plays a major role in covering the child abuse and rapes up.

Would your opinion of the situation be any different?
