CWN Editor's Note: “Catholic Church leaders in Los Angeles for years shuffled predator priests into non-English-speaking immigrant communities,” according to the report. “That pattern was revealed in personnel documents released in a decades-old legal settlement.” Terry Mattingly of GetReligion offered commentary on the report, based on his interviews in the 1980s with Hispanics who had left the Church.
