So Roger Mahony and Thomas J. Curry have apologized.
Here is part of Curry's statement (echoing Mahony's of the previous day)
"I wish to acknowledge and apologise for those instances when I made
decisions regarding the treatment and disposition of clergy accused of
sexual abuse that in retrospect appear inadequate or mistaken," Curry
said in a statement obtained by the Ventura County Star.
After decades of refusing requests for files, denials that anything untoward really happened - no cover-up, of course, this is what the victims get.
Oh well, better than nothing I suppose!
And then again, I could go back and watch Deliver Us From Evil one more time. Maybe nothing would have been better.
This blog has morphed as my understanding of the past has morphed. The blog is more and more a midrash on my writing and my life.
