THE WHISTLE BLOWER

By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | Jan 18, 2004

If a priest became suspicious about the activities of his pastor with regard to young people, he could turn to his superiors and confide his concerns to them with complete confidence.

Right?

"But newly unsealed court documents show that long after Aylward admitted having touched boys for sexual gratification, Archbishop Levada expressed misgivings about Conley's role and said that under the same circumstances he – Levada – would not have reported Aylward to police as Conley had done."

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Given Abp. Levada's role in the Bishop Ziemann case in the Santa Rosa diocese in CA, should we be surprised...? How funds in that diocese were squandered has never been explained or brought to light. But of course that would require an outside audit and we take care of these things 'inhouse', right? No need for any outside agencies - we're all honorable men here, right...?
