A safe family environment

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jan 05, 2004

Let's say you get sick and tired about all the stories on sexual abuse by the clergy, and-- just for a break-- you take the family to Disney World.

How do you feel when you learn that one of the "greeters" there is a priest, removed from his pastoral assignment because of sex-abuse charges?

If US bishops have been lax in protecting children against abusers (and they have been), what does this say about Disney?

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    As a person who hires employees, there's due diligence involved in determining from the employment history whether the reason why an employee left a previous job is connected to the job the person is applying for. Clearly Disney dropped the ball. Even if Disney was lied to, there's a public record to inform them.
