Newark Archbishop John Myers' unconvincing dodge--editorial:

http://blog.nj.com/njv_editorial_page/2013/05/newark_archbishop_john_myers_u.html

"Newark Archbishop John J. Myers has broken his long silence with a remarkable statement in yesterday’s Star-Ledger that attempts to evade any personal responsibility for allowing a known sex offender under his supervision to mingle with children.

He offers no apology to the families whose children were put in harm’s way. He offers no explanation for the breathtaking lapses in this case. And he makes no significant policy changes." *******************


Read the archbishop's letter to his congregations, and ask yourself in all good conscience whether the right thing for him to do is not resign. (It is.) An archbishop needs to take responsibility, excuses and 'we tried our best' remarks just aren't going to do it.

Stick it out to the end of the article, the very strange bit about the Florida case. I swear these things sound like they're just made up.
