Pope’s Vatican watchdog on abuse: wrong priest for the job / The Boston Globe

WHY PUT a priest who covered up sexual abuse in charge of policing it?

“That’s exactly what Pope Francis did when he appointed the Rev. Robert J. Geisinger as the Vatican’s ‘promoter of justice.’ While the pope has met with abuse victims and pledged himself to zero tolerance, the appointment of Geisinger is a step backward. To signal his resolve on an issue that has deeply wounded so many, he should rescind the appointment.”

    Note, however, that the Globe’s news story on this fell short of being objective and fair. See GetReligion on this: http://www.getreligion.org/getreligion/2014/11/27/ap-finds-distortions-in-boston-globe-story-on-vatican-sex-abuse-prosecutor?rq=boston%20globe
