FELLOW CATHOLICS: 

ON MAY 11TH, 2012, AT SANTA CLARA UNIVERSITY, EXPERTS, INCLUDING KATHLEEN MCCHESNEY, FIRST HEAD OF THE BISHOPS’ OWN OFFICE OF CHILD AND YOUTH PROTECTION, AND MICHAEL MERZ, FORMER CHAIR OF THE BISHOPS’ NATIONAL REVIEW BOARD, CONCLUDED:


 THE CHARTER TO PROTECT
CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE  IS STILL
FUNDAMENTALLY FLAWED.


SOME CHURCH OFFICIALS DO NOT REPORT ABUSE TO POLICE.

THERE IS NO ASSURANCE OF DIOCESAN COMPLIANCE.

THERE IS NO ACCOUNTABILITY FOR RECALCITRANT BISHOPS WHO DO NOT COMPLY OR REPORT.

THERE IS NO COMPREHENSIVE LIST OF THE CREDIBLY ACCUSED, THE DISPOSITIONS OF THEIR CASES, AND THEIR WHEREABOUTS.

THERE IS LITTLE/NO RESPONSIVENESS TO NATIONAL REVIEW BOARD RECOMMENDATIONS.

SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER IS NOT WELCOMED.


THE SEXUAL ABUSE SCANDAL IS NOT HISTORY!


 FOR THE SAKE OF OUR CHILDREN, WRITE TO ARCHBISHOP GREGORY AND DEMAND THAT HE AND THE OTHER BISHOPS:

CLOSE THE CHARTER LOOPHOLES!

GIVE THE CHARTER THE TEETH IT NEEDS!
