The media have shown no interest in putting pressure on bishops or Catholic leaders to do anything about these kinds of situations. So who really is covering up what?
The tragic thing is that Pope John Paul II demanded over ten years ago in Ex Corde Ecclesiae(sp?) that the bishops bring the theological faculty in Catholic colleges under their control, and since that time the bishops have dragged their feet while waiting for the Pope to die.
What is really ironic (in a sick way) is that this creep Shanley's involvement with NAMBLA has been in the public record since the 1970s. And the media just discovered that this month? Get real, libs. These types knew very well there was an aggressive gay movement in the Church (which the media and the libs supported). Some bishops may be at fault for covering up, but there's plenty of blame to point elsewhere as well.
