The Church's Sex Abuse Crisis

The latest from Chicago:

The audits commissioned by [Cardinal] George contain shocking information about how the archdiocese handled monitors. Monitors were not told why they had to keep an eye on a priest in his or her charge. Some monitors had very little contact with their subjects. McCormack’s monitor was told by the vicar for priests that he didn’t have to notify the archdiocese of his vacation plans unless he would be gone for more than a week. And now we learn that the archdiocese assigned an accused priest’s close friend as a monitor. In 2006?

It's depressing stuff if you believe the hierarchy should have learned its lesson by now.
