We are glad that Gallup Catholic officials are moving toward resolving dozens of clergy sex abuse and cover up cases by selling mostly vacant property. This proves what we’ve long said: that Catholic officials have far more wealth than they admit and can do right by suffering victims if only they’ll put forth some effort.

Shame on GOP presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee for defending Josh Duggar by attacking those who report on his admitted abuse and using inflammatory words like “bloodlust.”

Fr. Joseph Palanivel Jeyapaul - who worked in two Minnesota dioceses: St. Paul and Crookston - has pled guilty to child sex crimes. We’re glad that it’s now crystal clear to virtually everyone that he’s a dangerous man who should be kept away from kids.
But we’re deeply worried that he may soon be free and will likely be around unsuspecting families and assault more children. (He has yet to be sentenced.) And if that happens, the blame can squarely be put on US and Indian Catholic officials who have acted irresponsibly from the outset in this terrible case.

Pope Francis moved Cardinal George Pell to Rome from Australia. Now, the pontiff must force Pell to testify before a governmental panel.
Serious allegations against Pell have repeatedly been raised - both through sworn testimony and through media interviews.
