Victims group blasts NYC Cardinal Dolan over new report

In the church's ongoing child sex abuse and cover up scandal, Cardinal Dolan continues to dish out pabulum instead of push for reform. 

Rather than making even vaguer and largely soon forgotten promises ("to strive to the fullest to end the societal scourge of child sexual abuse," he pledges today), he should:

-- remove his blog post insensitively questioning (and implicitly blaming) a New York City teenager who reported, just last year, being repeatedly molested by her pastor http://blog.archny.org/?p=1556

And

-- post on his archdiocesan website the names of proven, admitted and credibly accused child molesting clerics (like two dozen of his brother bishops have done).
