Rod Dreher, 2; Bishop Adamec, 0

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Mar 19, 2003

In a letter to the editor that appeared Monday in the Wall Street Journal, Bishop Adamec of Altoona, PA, denies the charges-- made in an earlier Journal column by Rod Dreher-- that he concealed sex-abuse charges in his diocese. Today in the Journal, Dreher responds. Suffice it to say that Dreher get the better of the exchange.
