KUDOS to the DMN!

By Fr. Wilson (articles ) | Jun 23, 2004

Breaking news indicates that the government of Samoa is preparing to deport Fr Frank Klep, a Salesian who failed to disclose a previous conviction for child molestation, as a result of the current Dallas Morning News series on clergy sexual abusers hiding abroad.

The Samoans are also reviewing the status of the Salesian Order in Samoa.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Unlike the Salesians, the Samoan authorities have agreed with the Derek Freeman thesis "The Making and Unmaking of an Anthropological Myth". Therein Freeman demonstrated that Margaret Mead's ideas in "Coming of Age in Samoa" and its flirtation with pederasty was after all a complete fabrication of life on the island.
