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?

Clearly Disney dropped the ball. Even if Disney was lied to, there's a public record to inform them.
