Victims give “F” grade to Mphs bishop

Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests

Sept. 26, 2019

He’s been on the job now for six months
They ‘out’ two more local abuser clerics
Both worked in Memphis but are ‘under the radar’
But the diocese won’t post a ‘credibly accused’ list
Most other bishops in the US have already done so
And group urges Tennessee’s AG to investigate all TN dioceses

Using chalk, clergy molestation victims will write on a sidewalk the names of predator priests and disclose two more ‘still under the radar’ credibly alleged pedophile priests who were in Memphis, but have attracted any public or media attention in the area.

Holding signs at a sidewalk news conference, they will also give Memphis’ new Catholic bishop a grade of “F” his first six months on the job, for refusing to
–post names of credibly accused clerics, and
–remove one of his predecessors – acknowledged by Catholic officials to be an abuser – from church programs and buildings.

They will call on the bishop to also reveal these alleged offenders’ names, photos, whereabouts and work histories immediately.

And they’ll call on current and former Catholic employees to ‘speak up’ about suspicions of child sex crimes and cover ups, in light of a new global church policy that says it’s their duty to do so.
