What did he do?

What did he do?

A man accuses a former Boys Town priest of abusing him years ago. The priest says that he was a strict disciplinarian and that may have been mistaken for abuse. A review board cleared the priest. But now, even though he’s retired, he’s suspended from his ministry to inmates. The one thing the article never says is what the priest actually did. Did he spank the kid? Did he allegedly do something overtly sexual? What disciplinary behavior does Fr. Kelly think is being mistaken for sexual abuse? That’s the problem with so much of the media coverage; they only give enough to make you wonder, but not enough to help you understand.
