NJ- Newark archbishop hires another lawyer
Newark's archbishop is hiring yet another defense lawyer. That's about protecting Myers and his reputation, not about protecting kids.
Newark predator priests haven't had more access to vulnerable youngsters because the archdiocese has too few lawyers on the payroll. These pedophiles have been around kids because of callousness and recklessness by Myers, not because of inadequate legal representation for the church hierarchy.
Motion isn't necessarily progress. Just doing things isn't proof of reform. If innocent Newark kids are to be safer and Newark predator priests are to be removed, it will take real leadership by Catholic officials, not more defense lawyers for Catholic officials.
Myers needs to stop hiding behind expensive professional lawyers and PR staffers. He needs to address this crisis directly and with meaningful reforms not empty promises.
