I am a practicing Catholic. I love my church. I feel it is time for the diocese to let the law take control of priests who have been charged with this horrible act. Have them arrested, charged and tried and if found guilty, off they go to jail like any other person who commits the crime of child sexual abuse. Get on with life.
The diocese needs to act like any other employer if a crime is committed. We need to have an open church, not a lot of secrets by a bunch of men who think they are above the law. Let’s get this behind us so our church can grow and be all it can be.
There are many wonderful priests who I have the pleasure of knowing. Let them lead the way and make our church better for everyone.
