CT - Clergy sex victims applaud park re-naming
Easton officials have made a smart and sensitive move by agreeing to take the name of an accused serial predator off of a park. There's no need to rub salt into the wounds of child sex abuse victims by honoring a man who has repeatedly been accused of molesting kids.
Nothing that city officials can do will hurt or help the accused predator, Stephen Toth. He's deceased. But they can help bring healing and closure to those he hurt, by removing his name. We applaud them for taking this simple, helpful step.
By changing the name of this park, Easton officials are making it more likely that other child sex abuse victims - those hurt by Toth or other pedophiles - will find the courage to report child molesters in the future.
