NJ- New York official to head Camden diocese; SNAP disapproves
New York Auxiliary Bishop Dennis Sullivan is a poor choice to head the Camden diocese.
He’s a member of the completely ineffectual US bishops sex abuse panel which functions largely as “window dressing” for a public relations campaign masquerading as ‘reform.’ He’s part of the New York archdiocese which, in recent years, has had a disappointing and deceptive track record in clergy sex abuse and cover up cases.
As he has repeatedly in the past, Pope Benedict is again promoting a cleric who shows no signs whatsoever of acting more responsibly with the safety of kids.
