He would come out of it with more integrity if he just admitted to making some bad mistakes in these instances, or challenge the reporters to give some proof if they are lying.
Prosecutors are casting wide nets to snare anybody who had anything to do with advising bishops to return predators to situations in which they could continue to prey. You can bet that if this pitiful little DMN writer has this stuff, plaintiffs lawyers like Roderick MacLeish have it too.
Fr. Groeschel will likely get the chance to confirm or refute these accusations, whether he wants to or not.

If that's the case I hope they get round to all those psyches who have returned abuser cops, teachers, social workers etc. into situations where they could re-offend as well. That would be a test of even-handedness in all of this!
However, I do think the hand of God is in all of this as well - and it is probably His intention that the Church be judged more severely than any other body.
Or maybe God just hates psychologists? ;)
