bull's eye

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:
