Well, almost never.

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?
