Bp. David Zubik and diocese ‘have not learned from the lessons of the past’

The attorney general of Pennsylvania slammed the bishop of Pittsburgh on Thursday for dragging his feet on implementing the recommendations made in the grand jury report on clergy sex abuse issued over a year ago.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro called the response of Bp. David Zubik — and the diocese of Pittsburgh — to the report as lacking in “remorse” and “transparency.”

“Neither Bp. Zubik nor any of his colleagues across Pennsylvania have [responded], and that should be disappointing to all Pennsylvanians,” Shapiro said, adding, “We continue to see the Church throw up roadblocks when it comes to getting those people who were abused the support and assistance that they need.”
