BC Gets it Right
The chairman of the Boston College theology department, the Rev. Kenneth Himes, sharply criticized the [seminary] review yesterday, saying that if the bishops really want to understand what caused the sexual abuse crisis, they should investigate their own offices.In a word, don't hold your breath.
''What really created the sexual abuse crisis was not poor formation [of priests] in the seminaries, but poor personnel management in the chanceries," Himes said. ''Now we are having an investigation of the seminaries, but I wonder when the Vatican and the American bishops will investigate their own chanceries."
