Learned nothing yet

Learned nothing yet

Just when you think that bishops have learned their lesson, they do something to reinforce the idea they haven’t. The Toledo Diocese at first refused to acknowledge an abuse victim and the wouldn’t take repsonibility for the priest’s actions. It seems the priest is a Jesuit and so responsibility was shuffled off to the order, which finally paid off the victim. As the article says, the bishop of Toledo is still trying to avoid scandal rather than confront it directly. I guess Bishop Wilton Gregory was wrong; the Scandal isn’t history.

Oh and the Jesuit? He’s a liturgist who was being published as late as last June in a national Catholic magazine. I wonder which one. (Actually I don’t; I think I know which one.)

  • Nope, think “national”. National Jesuit magazine.

    I agree on the coming next explosion. We’ve heard nothing yet from the orders, and let’s not forget that the Dallas policy doesn’t apply to them completely.

  • Colleen, I know you didn’t mention parish, but around here not only do we have America, we get my other favorite rag, i mean mag “US Catholic” as well.  Is it really a sin if I steal them from the library and never return them?
