Why Archbishop Sean O’Malley makes me see red, and I don’t mean hats. III

By Leila Marie Lawler (articles ) | Mar 19, 2006

As dear Diogenes has said often enough, we are waiting for a bishop to deal with an aspect of the sexual abuse crisis before it’s brought up in the media.

And it was your newspaper that pointed out the anomaly to us [that for twenty years we’ve placing children in same-sex households], and we have tried to deal with that.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    My dear Leila, I suspect that prelates are, by nature, re-active, not pro-active...to have taken the high road and laicised the perps without prior press coverage was not even on their radar(even after the discovery that counseling was inutile). What counted was the status quo, damage-controll, misplaced allegiences, all that rot. Unfortunately, the USCCB is shot-through with this mentality. Nothing short of a clean sweep with orthodox bishops will change this.
