Alleged Victims Say Bishop Witnessed Abuse

Alleged victims of Fr. Joseph Birmingham here in Salem are criticizing Bishop John McCormack of Manchester, NH.

The story is kind of confused. Is it saying that Cardinal Law said he believes McCormack did nothing wrong? Or someone else? And it’s badly written: “McCormack was once a fellow priest in a parish for Birmingham.” What?!

But if the allegations are true—and McCormack’s track record isn’t good—it is pretty damning evidence. But maybe McCormack gave Birmingham a “severe talking to.”
