Somebody’s sold their soul, it seems:
(Journalist Sabrina Rubin) Erdely quotes former Assistant District Attorney Will Spade describing the process of extracting information from the archdiocese: “It was like trying to infiltrate a racketeering organization. Most of these guys just seemed to be in the wrong professions. They weren’t kind or understanding or any of the things a priest should be. They were just thugs.”
I wonder how the new archbishop will handle this mess.
Hopefully he’ll find a tack other than that of his high profile neighbor to the northeast, blaming some group for worse behavior. (You think the Church is bad? Look at the mafia!)
Is anyone else finding the reading of these reports to be disheartening? I have to admit I don’t have the stomach for the last few. I read the outline of the Graves report from Kansas City, but I could go no further.
