Statement Regarding Dismissal of Pope
from Child Sex Suit
Statement by David Clohessy of St. Louis
Once again, a high ranking church official uses legal technicalities to escape responsibility for horrific child sex crimes, instead of squarely facing an abuse case. In court, Catholic leaders continue to act like cold-hearted CEOs instead of compassionate shepherds.
Virtually no pressures or pleas seem to persuade the church hierarchy to work harder to protect the vulnerable or heal the wounded. So we applaud more resourceful or creative means of prodding Catholic officials to do what's right.
These kinds of legal maneuvers rub salt into the already deep and still fresh wounds of thousands of victims and their families. They also obscure the truth and delay the healing that Catholics desperately need and deserve.
