A former monk and self-described “fixer” for the Catholic Church claims Missouri is uniquely favorable to predator priests.
Speaking to St. Louis’ Fox 2 News this week, Patrick Wall noted that “Missouri law has been very favorable to the Church,” explaining that has fueled the creation of “treatment” centers — housing offender priests — in the state.
Rebecca Randles, a Kansas City attorney who represents clergy abuse victims agrees. She told Church Militant: “All you have to do is start from the top down. Just think about who some of the leaders of the Catholic Church in Missouri have been in the last three decades.”
