Law had to quit, Weakland was exposed and crawled away in disgrace, and the clock is ticking on many more bishops (like Grahmann in Dallas) who are being raked over the coals daily in their communities. And deservedly so.
Bernardin so far has gotten a pass.
He's dead. And he's been duly ripped by RCF and others with, of course, no opportunity for him to defend himself.
People like Mahoney and Adamac should be in the crosshairs, not men like Groeschel who do Christ's work and take the heat for it.
They are. But Groeschel worked with priests who abused young people. Because of doctor-patient privilege, we will likely never know just how much bishops relied on his recommendations. Yes, the bishops are ultimately responsible. But the "experts" will get dragged into any legal proceedings because they are, after all, experts.
