supervised ministry

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Aug 17, 2005

Albany Bishop Howard "2-point-4" Hubbard has decided not to defrock abuser priests.

A spokesman for the bishop actually said Tuesday that by not laicizing an abusive priest it actually keeps him subject to the church's authority -- otherwise he could just slip away and not be held responsible.

Quick grammar question: what's the word "otherwise" doing in that sentence? Don't they mean "so that"?
