Here’s a section of the above story:
“Margaret Reif, a Downingtown mother who started the Catholic Accountability Project, said she did not want to enrich lawyers or bankrupt the church, and would support a cap on damages in such suits. “As a parent, it’s really important that we can say who these people are and get them off the street.”
Like Reif, Bob Riley became engaged in the issue after the latest grand jury report. A 64-year-old financial adviser, grandfather, and lifelong Catholic from Devon, Riley said he was so outraged by the developments that he decided to attend a meeting organized by abuse victims in Northeast Philadelphia.
Riley wasn’t a victim himself but was stunned to hear people who looked little different than him describe the impact of the abuse. “It was just unfathomable to me that this horrific situation could be happening and getting so little notoriety,” he said.”
