Click to read what was said during Archbishop Chaput’s meeting with The Philadelphia Inquirer Editorial Board. –“Chaput: Phila. school closings concern parishioners most” by David O’Reilly,The Philadelphia Inquirer, Oct. 27, 2010
Editor’s notes: Kathy Kane and I both agree there will be far more outcry over school closings. It’s human nature to care more about what directly impacts you. However, the clergy sex abuse cover up did impact every single parent whose child was/is in an archdiocesan school. Our children were placed at risk when priests with ‘issues” were knowingly moved from parish to parish.
It’s interesting that Archbishop Chaput is debating whether or not to disclose the allegations lodged against removed priests.
Archbishop Chaput also said that statutes restricting the time in which lawsuits can be filed “are a good idea or we wouldn’t have them.”
We disagree. We don’t have a statute of limitations for murder in PA. Victims deserve an opportunity for justice. If there is a lack of evidence, a judge can throw out the case.
