Pedophile Priest Dies in Prison

Arizona Republic
April 6, 2012

A blog from Phoenix New Times (see it here) reports that George Bredemann, a notorious pedophile priest who was protected by former local Bishop Thomas O’Brien, has died in prison.

Last November, when a local Catholic charity had plans to honor O’Brien I spoke to the father of one of Bredemann’s victims. (See that column here.)

The honor was withdrawn.

Whether or not Bredemann is “at peace” will be determined by a high authority.

As for his victims and their families, peace has been difficult, if not impossible, to find.

It’s them I’m thinking about.
