LOGJAM KICKED LOOSE

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

At a meeting in Chicago on Monday, a committee of the bishops and the National Review Board reportedly agreed on a framework for continued audits of the dioceses to insure their vigilance in protecting children from child abuse. Justice Anne Burke pronounces herself 'very happy' that this controverted point is resolved.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    The best way to deal with this is to get the perverts out of the priesthood and don't ordain anymore, then disband the review board. Until the bishops start using the authority they have to resolve the problems this nonsense will continue. Also, a lay review board has not authority over bishops or any part of the Church. For oversight that can do something we need a group of orthodox priests from the Vatican that won't tolerate any nonsense.
