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.)
