I guess that’s why the Philadelphia just suspended 21 Priests on March 8 of this year. Also they have a Monsignor up for covering up and hiding these Priests.

Yes: I thought it was taken care of too, but it seems there are a few lingering around.

That's right, the Archdiocese suspended 21 priests in response to a GJ report, one whose fairness is easily questioned.

These priests haven't been convicted, and only two priests and one archbishop have even been indicted, along with a former priest who was laicized before the FIRST Philadelphia GJ. And the behavior alleged took place in the 90's and earlier.

Of course, I guess the 4 indictments justifies taking another bite at the GJ apple, since the 2006 GJ returned ZERO indictments.

As for the suspensions, I suppose you could criticize that, but I thought people wanted the Church to act on any allegation, no matter how spurious.

I'll wait for convictions, myself.
