Vatican Tells Bishops to Report Sex Abuse to Police (but Doesn’t Require It)

Flagging comment from
Pope Francis signed off on the laicization of a former priest in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati in the fall of 2018 under very questionable circumstances. the laicization was handled in under 1 year, almost unheard of in the Catholic Church. The Archdiocese, under Archbishop Dennis Schnurr, hired a lawyer to gather criminal investigation information to be used in a Canon Trial to forcibly remove him from the priesthood. They then got him to cooperate and remove himself on personal grounds, very convenient. The accusations concerning violations to the “Decree on Child Protection” with a minor were first reported to the Archdiocese in July 2014. Pope Francis has never agreed to discuss this with the family. Nothing has changed, they are still covering it up. The priest in question just disappeared from the active priest list and Pope Francis is part of this cover up.
