Survivors Applaud Removal of Accused Bishop's Name
Former Bishop Michael Bransfield’s name has been taken off Wheeling Central Catholic High School, by the school’s board of directors. Given that Bishop Bransfield has faced multiple allegations of sexual harassment and abuse, we believe that this was the right move by administrators at Central Catholic High School.
The very least church officials can do is remove honors for clerics who commit or conceal sexual wrongdoing. We hope that this step will bring some comfort to those whose abuse happened on Bransfield’s watch and to those who may were hurt by Bransfield.
