Title: Sex abuse allegations
Post by: Frenchfry on May 06, 2012, 03:19:32 AM
Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput says five priests have been found not suitable for ministry due to substantiated allegations of sexual abuse or boundary violations.

Chaput says three priests will be returned to ministry while another died during the investigation. He also says 17 other cases have been investigated but the findings are not being announced Friday.

The cardinal also offered his profound apology to the victims of clergy abuse.

The announcements come as a former church official stands trial in the city on child-endangerment charges for allegedly helping the archdiocese cover up abuse complaints.

A February 2011 grand jury report that spawned that case alleges that dozens of accused priests were still active in Philadelphia, despite a zero-tolerance policy among U.S. bishops. The accusations ranged from sexual abuse to inappropriate boundary issues.

5 Priests Booted From Ministry

In an investigation of 17 Roman Catholic priests, five were deemed unsuitable to stay in the Philadelphia ministry because of sexual-abuse allegations. The inquiry comes during the trial for a former top aide at the archdiocese, who allegedly mishandled and discredited 12 years of abuse complaints in the area. The grand-jury investigation that led to the trial also claimed there were dozens of abusive priests still employed by the church. In response, the archdiocese hired a former child-sex-crimes prosecutor to reopen all the former allegations against current priests.

The only way to root out pedophilia in the Catholic Church is for Catholics to speak out and demand it! Quit standing by and letting it happen and helping cover it up! Catholic leadership of Monroe don't think we don't know!!!
