At their annual meeting, the bishops told reporters that:
  • their new policies have effectively stopped sexual abuse
  • the media is exploiting the controversy
  • complaints about the bishops' leadership are motivated by anti-Catholic bias
  • diocesan officials are fully cooperating with investigators
  • Questions:

    1. Are we talking about the Dallas meeting in June 2002, or the St. Louis meeting this week? 2. What has changed?

    An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
