Its unconscionable. According to Fr. Pfeiffer, if you so much as suspect Fr. Roberts, Fr. Ugottagoiter (sorry, can't spell) or any priest who hasn't actually been convicted for pedophilia, you are in the state of mortal sin.
That's about what it amounts to, spiritual blackmail. In reality, individuals under the care of priests who refuse to do protect their flock, remain in danger.
"Convicted"? By whom? I thought we are not supposed to take priests to court? I thought we are only supposed to inform his superior and the bishop would take care of it accordingly... unfortunately, the Church authorities have failed the Faithful and so the Faithful seem to have no recourse but to sue. The fact it happens does not mean it is how the Church should function. So I ask again... If we are not supposed to sue a priest, how can he ever be Convicted?
Fr. Pfeiffer is so wrong on this one it is frightening.
Would you trust b. Timlin? He wasn't convicted of anything, that I know of but he provided safe haven for many perverts...
Birds of a feather tend to flock together.
OLMC seems to be becoming SSJ part 2.
