Shame on you Reverend Larry Reuter

Reverend Larry Reuter was president of Loyola Academy, an elite Chicago area Catholic high school. He’s admitted abusing one 18-year-old male student and is accused of abusing another.

Late Tuesday, a second man reportedly came forward and alleged that he'd also been abused by Reuter.  The Chicago Jesuit Province said it is investigating the claim and has contacted the Cook County State's Attorney.

Catholic leadership knew of Reuter abuse  for 20 years yet allowed him to continue leading Loyola Academy. It’s this internal hypocrisy and protectionist tendencies that motivate the public to demand reform.
