Church scandals must remain in spotlight

Post Gazette

November 30, 2018

I deeply appreciate the Post-Gazette’s ongoing coverage and revelations about the abuse scandal in the Catholic Church. The Nov. 25 front page article, “Hiding Behind God,” left me reeling. I hope to see the issue shoved in the face of church hierarchy until atonement and justice prevail.

Every bishop should step down. Every church altar and statue should be draped in black. No one, priest or parishioner, should be permitted for a minute to forget, rationalize or dismiss the abhorrent crime that has been committed.
