They knew

But then, we always knew they did.

The former No. 2 official of the Catholic church in Chicago admitted that he knew 25 priests broke the law by sexually abusing children but did not report them, according to depositions made public Tuesday

They knew and hid the knowledge from those who needed it most. They knew and fought to keep it secret. They knew and kept priests in their jobs. They knew and kept silent.

Bishop Emeritus Raymond E. Goedert's should be prosecuted. He should resign. He should be fired. He should be held accountable. Right?
