Statement Regarding Pennsylvania Court Ruling


September 28, 2005

This is a setback for public safety, a victory for child molesters, a relief for duplicitious bishops, and yet another heartbreak for those want to warn families about dangerous predators and who have been and are deeply wounded because of abusive clergy and complicit church officials.

There's just one remedy now: State lawmakers must open a 'window' so that the victims of horrific sex crimes and deception can have their day in court, expose their abusers, safeguard children, and get justice.
