We're gradually seeing more and more suits like this across the country (most recently in Florida and Missouri). It's disturbing to see more proof that Catholic officials continue to act recklessly, secretively and callously in sex cases.
Catholic officials often brag about all their abuse policies and panels and procedures. But what matters is how one acts, not what one says. As long as those at the top of the Catholic hierarchy show by their deeds that they remain committed to concealing child sex crimes, nothing in the church will change and kids will continue to be at risk.
We wish Mr. Cerbone well. No matter how his suit turns out, he will know, for the rest of his life, that he's done the brave and right thing.
