A priest and the former director of seminarians for the Seattle Archdiocese has died. We hope he is not given a burial of a priest in good standing.

As the head of seminarians for the Seattle Archdiocese, Fr. David Jaeger, let a known abuser, Fr. Paul Joseph Conn, perform duties as a priest. Jaeger himself is an admitted child molester, having acknowledged abusing 8-10 boys. He was voluntarily defrocked in 2005.

We hope his victims find peace from his death. We are glad that he can no longer hurt any more children And we hope Catholic officials do not callously rub salt into the wounds of victims by giving Jaeger a large and pomp-filled funeral.
