Where in the World is Bishop Thomas Dupre?
November 7, 2005
As 2005 comes to a close it is disheartening, yet all too predictable that little has changed within the cocoon like world of the Catholic hierarchy.
T 2004 indictments and subsequent dropping of child rape charges against Massachusetts Catholic Bishop Thomas Duprecertainly points the inadequacy of most states laws to deal with such heinous offensesIndeed it was only after the public outrage over Dupre’s not so great escape that
ust as troubling and pehaps more telling is the Catholic hierarchapparent the abouts ofirwaywardandtheir total lack of concern for what he may still be doing.
Bishop Dupre resigned as leader of the
cocoon by his brethren
Where is the righteous anger the Catholic hierarchy is always ready to unleash on others, yet seem so averse to bring down on their own brethren? Where is the moral imperative we have every right to expect from our religious institutions?
This is a Catholic hierarchy thathas come the seriousness of child abuse only after being threatened with criminal action; aCatholic hierarchy that removthe pedophile from ministry, ; a Catholic hierarchy that continues to pay the abuser with parishioner’s funds and has the gall to call it charity.
Isn’t it charity when you reach into your own pocket and not someone else’s?
Ask the where Bishop Dupre isbegin to understand the obvious so Church leaders have neither the nor the moralto keep track of their criminals.
S9the Diocese of Springfield done to investigate this abuse?
in a Berkshire Eagle article from last year, or what he's up to.
Catholic hierarchy can be heard loud and clear when the topic of abortion or gay marriage is brought to the fore, yet they are tellingly silent when the protection of our youth is on the line.
Apparently doing the right thing only applies when it doesn’t involve one of their own!
Just keep dropping those checks in the basket. You can be sure the Bishop Emeritus will keep cashing them!
