the candor continues

By Diogenes (articles ) | Oct 13, 2005

Never?

[Defense attorney for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles] Hennigan said the church never knowingly put children at risk. Archdiocese officials routinely transferred priests, especially early in their careers, he said.

Well, almost never.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    I don't get your point, Uncle Di. You seem to be missing Attorney Hennigan's. His would be that the Archdiocese did NOT transfer the reported abusers BECAUSE OF complaints of abuse AND a furtive desire to shield the abusers but BECAUSE OF nothing more than standard, uniformly applied Archdiocese-wide policy of frequent transfer of priests, especially young priests. Am I missing something here? Can somebody else help me out?
