NJ- Newark Archdiocese settles w/ 5 abuse victims, SNAP responds
New Jersey attorney Greg Gianforcaro announced today that he has settled five cases against the Newark archdiocese involving a convicted Newark priest who was sent to Missouri where he assaulted more kids (after changing his name in between).
Catholic officials settle cases like these because they’re scared of trials. They know that under oath their complicity will be laid bare. They are almost always very fearful of having to face tough questions in open court.
So when Catholic officials pretend settlements are driven by “compassion” or ‘charity,” that’s baloney.
These settlements aren’t “reform.” They are just a smart business move by a prelate who knows there’s still tons of dirty secrets in his archdiocese that he wants to keep hidden.
We admire these five men for seeking justice. We hope their courage inspires others to step forward too.
