Remember that priest from Australia under threat of being kicked out? Fr. Z passes along the story that it has happened.
I think many in law enforcement will recognize this part:
Vince Knauth, also from St Mary’s leadership group, says it is not right that Father Kennedy is being singled out.
“Statistically this week 4,392 priests and deacons of the United States were subject to allegations of child molestation – that’s between 1950 and 2002,” he said.
Two per cent of those were actually put behind bars.”
I imagine most people recognize it as well. It’s the “Why are you pulling me over for reckless driving when you should be out looking for drug dealers?” defense. It don’t work with the fuzz and it won’t work here.
