We are both grateful and worried about Fr. Superiaso being deported to the Philippines. We are thankful he won’t be able to hurt kids here anymore, but we fear that kids in his home country will be vulnerable to his attacks.
We disagree with the Catholic quoted in the article linked below who urges forgiveness for a convicted child molesting cleric. Kids need adults to be vigilant first, and forgiving later.
We hope that every single person who saw, suspected or suffered Fr. Superiaso’s crimes will speak up, get help, call police, protect others, expose wrongdoing and start healing.
Finally, we applaud the courageous woman who reported Fr. Superiaso to law enforcement. Her strength has kept this dangerous predator away from kids for years. We are proud of her and hope she feels proud of herself too.
