bull's eye

By Diogenes (articles ) | Sep 06, 2003

USCCB President Wilton Gregory laments the media's preoccupation with sexual abusers who are Catholic clerics. Amy Welborn's comment thereon is irreducibly succinct.

It's unfortunate, but totally understandable, that a Catholic bishop can't raise this point without giving the appearance of skirting responsibility. But you know, that's what happens when you ... skirt responsibility.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Part of the preoccupation is the anticipation of significant head-rolling of bishops as Rome takes a bite out of crime. Sadly, that hasn't occurred yet, so expect the media preoccupation to continue. As, I assume, will the whining by the heads that have not yet rolled.
