Sic transit Holy Shit!

The never ending horrible behavior and embarrassment of the hierarchy of the Catholic Church continues unabated.
Among the documents are relatively recent letters from Cardinal George to Norbert Maday, who is in prison serving a 20 year sentence, after being found guilty in 1994 for child sex abuse and threatening witnesse. He was informed by George in a letter written two years later that he would not be dismissed from the clerical state. "You have suffered enough by your present deprivation of ministry and your incarceration," George wrote.
Sexually abuse a child, remain a priest.

Advocate individual choice in reproduction -- you are not allowed to take part in communion.

Sounds nice and proportionate right?

too bad they couldn't get him to rome like cardinal Bernard law."In December 2002, Law left Boston. It is often alleged that he left just hours before state troopers arrived with subpoenas seeking his grand jury testimony; however, he had previously given evidence before two grand juries and been fully investigated by the state attorney general and the five district attorneys in the counties in which the archdiocese operates. When the state attorney general issued his report entitled Child Sexual Abuse in the Archdiocese of Boston (July 23, 2003) he severely criticized Law mentioning that "the Archdiocese has shown an institutional reluctance to adequately address the problem and, in fact, made choices that allowed the abuse to continue"
