And the legal system is complicit in the attack.
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!!!
(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!!!
