This is too weird. A self-admitted child molester who was laicized at his own request, but was involved with a Catholic ministry with ties to many different dioceses in the US was arrested in Haiti, where he was being visited by the notoriously heterodox Bishop Thomas Gumbleton, on charges he had assisted in a jailbreak, according to the Dallas Morning News. Ron Voss also gets kudos from the Maine-based liberal group Pax Christi. Voss runs youth programs in Haiti, by the way, even though he admitted in his own words: “My sins are too numerous to detail, but the most grievous gather around the sexual abuse of many adolescent boys, including some minors.”
Where is the criminal investigation? And why did the Diocese of Lafayette, Indiana, tell victims groups that Voss was not accused of molesting boys?
I wonder how well the Lafayetter diocese did in the recent US bishops’ audit for compliance with the Dallas policy.
