Pedophile Priest Dies in Prison
April 6, 2012
A blog from Phoenix New Times (see it here) reports that George Bredemann, a notorious pedophile priest who was protected by former local Bishop Thomas O’Brien, has died in prison.
Last November, when a local Catholic charity had plans to honor O’Brien I spoke to the father of one of Bredemann’s victims. (See that column here.)
The honor was withdrawn.
Whether or not Bredemann is “at peace” will be determined by a high authority.
As for his victims and their families, peace has been difficult, if not impossible, to find.
It’s them I’m thinking about.
